A downtown Laramie restaurant has been featured on Food & Wine's list of Best Vegan (and Vegetarian) Restaurants across the country.

Sweet Melissa's made the list for multiple reasons, including its "Pinterest-worthy storefront" and menu items such as the black bean burger and vegan queso. The restaurant is also the only restaurant in Wyoming whose menu is strictly vegetarian/vegan-friendly, according to Happy Cow, which helps track vegetarian and vegan-friendly restaurants and shops across the globe.

Although Sweet Melissa's might be the only vegetarian/vegan-friendly option in Wyoming, those willing to drive a bit further south of the border will find 4 more vegetarian and vegan-friendly restaurants in Fort Collins, and an additional 8 establishments in Denver.
