Laramie Main Street and Sweet Melissa's team up for "Taste of the Town" June 13

Sweet Melissa's, downtown Laramie
My favorite place to eat in Laramie is Sweet Melissa's Vegetarian Cafe. The place admits omnivores like me, even carnivores (wolves must be accompanied by a consenting vegan). We sometimes pile in the car and drive over the hill so that my daughter can eat at one of the only veggie places in the state. The food is great. I am especially fond of the lentil loaf and the desserts. The bar next door offers meatless craft beers.

A special event on tap for Melissa's on Monday. Here are the details:
Laramie Main Street is excited to collaborate with the popular Sweet Melissa’s Vegetarian CafĂ© for our June Taste of the Town. Join us Monday, June 13 from 4 to 9 p.m. to meet new friends, remember how good vegetables taste and raise funds for downtown revitalization projects.

Sweet Melissa’s has been serving comfort food for the homesick vegetarian since 1999. It quickly became one of downtown’s most popular establishments, attracting both locals and tourists for good, quality meals.

For the skeptical carnivores, we recommend the lentil loaf, grilled portabello or falafel sandwich. For those looking for variety, Sweet Melissa’s serves several American, Italian, Greek, Indian and Mexican dishes. For dessert, don’t skip the fried banana break, chocolate or carrot cake.

Taste of the Town is a fundraiser for Laramie Main Street designed to highlight unique, local restaurants in the downtown district. 10% of the sales benefit LMS, a non-profit that works to preserve historic Downtown Laramie while enhancing its economic and social vitality.

Sweet Melissa’s is located at 213 South 1st Street. For more information, contact Laramie Main Street at 307-742-2212 or Sweet Melissa’s at 307-742-9607.
