Quiet place in the middle of down town...the food was good and the bill reasonable. Try it, you'll like it!

Melissa's never disappoints. Quaint & cozy atmosphere, terrific service & yummy food! You must ask to see their dessert selections - it's worth going just for dessert! We enjoy taking our out of town guests to Melissa's & they always have great comments about their visit.

This traditional restaurant looks like a doll House and a 50s mostly homemade food. Simple, unpretentious and just delicious. It should also be noted that healthy options (salads, grenés, fruits) are very much put forward in the menu. The service is done quickly, but it is also friendly with a touch of class. Highly recommended.

We have tried this place multiple times and have given up. It's a local favorite ,so we are asked often to go. It's just not our cup of tea. The staff is friendly ,but the food is very plain. I know many people that love it, so I guess it just depends on your palette.

This has new owners in the past year or so, therefore, the ratings from that point forward are important. It is very small and simple. Nothing fancy. The food and service were very good for lunch. We would return here.

We were here a few years ago and... More

The food and service are always consistently great. They have a ton of homemade pies to choose from so if you have a sweet tooth, this is the place for you in Versaillles.

Such a nice place to get excellent Kentucky cooking at a charming little cafe in Versailles. My husband I especially like the ground beef steak with sauteed onions and mushrooms with gravy, mashed potatoes and truly awesome southern cooked green beans. Desserts are delicious too!! Only problem is that it is very small and sometimes there is a wait for... More

I stumbled upon the Melissa Cottage Cafe and am glad I did. The charming waitress took great care of me, recommending a chicken salad dish festooned with fresh fruit and freshly baked bread. Southern hospitality to spare!

Melissa offers great sandwiches and traditional items in downtown Versailles, KY. This is a very quaint family owned restaurant!
