Cute place to go for brunch in downtown Boone near Appalachian State University. We enjoyed poached eggs, scratch made biscuits, multigrain pancakes, grits, and bacon. My Rasberry Green tea was served in an adorable personal tea press. Short wait on the weekend. Cozy atmosphere and...More

Melanie's is a tradition in downtown Boone serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week. We source all of our bread, eggs and burgers locally as well as other items when we can. We have an eclectic and creative menu serving food made from scratch. We are sensitive to vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diners.
