“I couldn’t believe I was able to eat vegan and gluten-free in Wyoming, but Sweet Melissa did not fail to deliver. Our server was…very funny, energetic, and she pushed the experience up over the top. I live in Portland, OR, but if I am ever back in Laramie, I will definitely have to go back and check out the rest of the menu. Thank you for a wonderful experience; it was delicious.” – Aaron H.

Not Your Average Café

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Melissa Murphy, the owner of Sweet Melissa.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Melissa about what it is that makes Sweet Melissa unique compared to their competition in Wyoming. Melissa told us:

“The first difference would be that we’re vegetarian. We’re small and family-owned and run. We pay attention to everything that is happening, which hopefully results in a superior experience.”

We also asked Melissa about the Sweet Melissa mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s her response:

“We get involved in a lot of different community activities and charitable causes. It makes me feel really good when some customers walk in the door and immediately go over to another table and start chatting, because everyone seems to know everyone…”

Building Success Through Community Involvement

Melissa credits Sweet Melissa’s strong online reputation to the simple fact that they provide a great product.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Sweet Melissa has grown through word of mouth and community involvement.

There are many business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Melissa’s expert advice for them:

“Let your customers know that you want their feedback. Whether it’s good or bad, it can help you improve things for them next time they come in.”


Congratulations to Sweet Melissa for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Melissa, for taking the time to speak with us!
