April 14, 2018 Giuseppe Pratt

Formerly a lawless frontier town, known for wild saloons and vigilante justice, Laramie is now a quiet college town, popular with outdoor enthusiasts as well as history buffs. Over twenty sites in and around Laramie are on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Wyoming Territorial Prison, which once held Butch Cassidy. The town is conveniently located between the Laramie Range and the Medicine Bow Mountains, making the area a paradise for mountain bikers, climbers and campers.

Sweet Melissa Cafe

Reviewed By Reg S - Benton, Arkansas

One of the best of it's kind. Creative food with all kinds of variety, yet vegetarian/vegan. The variety is such this place should appeal to everybody and reasonably priced as well.

Daylight Donuts

Reviewed By Ron S - Sheridan, Wyoming

If you want a Very, Very good donut stop here and if you want ordinary go there. No joking, that is why they are sold out so early each morning and the others box donut sideline joints have you watching out for falling prices on there's from not selling. Daylight Donuts are that good... One bite and you will agree.

Coal Creek Coffee

An absolutely excellent coffee shop and more. Classic coffee shop karma, and some of the best roasted-right-there-coffee you could find anywhere! Been there many years and the locals love it, but visitors hardly know about it.

Reviewed By Lori N

It's a nice big place to sit and work or talk, they have a little to eat but I only came for coffee. How does one explain average coffee? That's it. It's nothing special. Specifically, I got a latte and it didn't blend the flavors of creamy milk and coffee the way is expected at a coffee house. Additionally, when I asked about the bakery, the very trim college kid working said he didn't know anything about that kind of food cause he doesn't eat it. Haha. That's fine. I stook with just my coffee.

Big Dipper Ice Cream

Reviewed By onewickedb - Seattle, Washington

We stopped in here for a post-lunch-cone. I got the Butterfinger scoop and my girlfriend ordered the peanutbutter/chocolate. Both scoops were big and flavorful. We ended up switching back and forth because we couldn't choose favorites.

The shop itself is cute with a lot of character.

I would definitely recommend the Big Dipper for a cone whilst in Laramie.

Night Heron Books & Coffeehouse

A 2-story antiquarian/used book store and coffeehouse in historic downtown Laramie. Serving locally roasted espresso, fine teas, homemade baked goods, soup, and sandwiches on our own whole grain bread.

Reviewed By CopperLeah - Loveland, Colorado

I'd visited this book store many times in the past when it was just a book store. It has expanded into a coffee shop and book store (which conceptually is great), but it seems like they're still struggling to work out the kinks.
I felt like aisles were tight and that I had to move into the coffee shop staff space to get to the sci-fi section.
There's still a flow and feeling that is missing, but I'm hoping they continue to work that out. We'll check back in next time.

Prairie Rose Cafe

Reviewed By Todd G - Frederick, Colorado

Out for a Sunday drive breaking in our new truck. Found the Prairie Rose in Laramie. Family owned business and totally awesome. Looks like a great crowd of UW students frequent as well. Prices are very reasonable and the portions are big. Definitely worth the money. Made fresh and served hot. Staff friendly and very accommodating. They close at noon on Sundays, so get there early.

Always good things on the menu but a little overpriced for the style of food. Never had a bad experience even when the place is overcrowded.

The entrees, charming decor, and waitstaff could not have been nicer! The only problem is deciding what tantalizing dish to select from the appetizing, well priced menu.

Altitude Chophouse and Brewery

Altitude Chophouse and Brewery focuses on hand crafting a high quality chophouse fare, created through culinary techniques and fused with Western Heritage. We take great pride in our hand crafted beers, along with our many numerous dietary options including Vegetarian and Gluten Free. We have a modernized and warm environment which is good for families, parties, and individuals. Friendly staff, good food, and great beer!

Reviewed By AMPWyo - Cheyenne, Wyoming

Of the places to eat in Laramie, Altitude is at towards the top. It's a plus that they take reservations, especially after sporting events. The prime rib is solid. Compared to other places in Wyoming, overall it's average. I would not recommend ordering the Charcuterie Platter as an appetizer. The cheese were not extraordinary and the meats slimy-awful. The olives had a peculiar smell. The server completely missed taking one of our orders and it took a while to track her back down. Those in our party that ordered steaks fared OK. Other menu items, not so good. I would approach this like ordering at a micro-pub and stick to basics.
