This place is a friendly, college town restaurant, with a laid back attitude. The only reason I gave the service a 3 is because the food is fresh and so labor intensive, it is rather slow. Our boss thought we were taking the afternoon off, but it was worth the ribbing.

After a few trips here, Sweet Melissa's is consistently good. The atmosphere is relaxed with good service. My family does prefer less "healthy" options and balks a bit at going here.

The menu has changed and I lost one of my favorites, the spanakopita, but a newly added item is the Grits Casserole. It's great on a cold winter day! The collard greens served with it were a bit over seasoned for my taste, but that is the only time I've ever had any portion of any meal at Sweet Melissa's... More

Great food, great service. I am not a vegetarian, but this is one of the best restaurants in Laramie. I usually go for the sweet potato burrito. the owner is awesome and works hard to put out quality food that tastes good. Very popular place to eat in Laramie. Go early to beat the lunch rush. the accompany bar is... More

The only unfortunate part of road trips is the eating out. This place was great. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. Do not expect white table clothes, but do expect everything else being top notch. Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-free... We couldn't have been happier.

We were passing through and thrilled to find vegetarian AND (excellent) Indian food in the middle of Wyoming. Lots of options! We loved the samosas and lentil soup- buffalo cauliflower wings for appetizer. The coffee and tea wasn't their specialty- but the food and atmosphere made us very forgiving. Would come here many times over!

My husband & I are pescatarians (we eat fish but not other meat), so we find our selections at most restaurants to be quite limited. Not here. With a vegetarian menu, my husband had a hard time choosing from the extensive menu. I have a wheat allergy, but the restaurant has a gluten-free menu that was pretty extensive too. Our... More

Initially we were surprised to discover a totally vegetarian restaurant option in Laramie, but then remembered the University of Wyoming is there. This is a rather small old town establishment in a wonderful old brick building. The menu is reasonably sized with a variety of choices all very appealing. Dailey specials are displayed on a blackboard. We had a light... More

Sweet Melissa's has a very good restaurant, but I like to sit in the bar (full bar menu, great selection of craft beers) because of the staff, who are all very knowledgeable and way into what they are doing. My favorite on the bar menu are the spicy cauliflower buffalo wings- sounds weird, but really tasty!
