Sweet Melissa Restaurant Review

: Sweet Melissa has a bright, trendy vibe that serves as the backdrop for a menu crafted with fresh, organic ingredients. Pale maple floors, exposed brick walls and shiny copper ceilings with halogen spotlights set the tone for this restaurant and bakery, where lunchtime highlights a variety of wraps, small plates and sandwiches (Laina’s chicken salad sandwich with white cheddar and grapes is a favorite). For dinner, there are plenty of stick-to-your-ribs comfort plates, including pumpkin sage gnocchi with dried cranberries and tangy goat cheese, or the “brick” chicken served with mac ‘n’ five cheese. Though salads, appetizers and soups are also available, the beautifully decorated sweets --- cakes, cookies, pies and chocolate-covered strawberries --- are one of the main draws; grab what looks good since they rotate frequently. Beyond the dessert case, Sweet Melissa’s weekend brunch is a hot ticket, too --- be prepared to wait for a table. Once seated, order the biscuits ‘n gravy with scrambled eggs. Service is spotty, so be sure to bring an extra dose of patience.
