Born a Kentuckian, but educated in France and living in Manhattan, I feel that I have an open-minded, varied palate. I often miss the cuisine from my home state, and every time I return to Kentucky to see my parents, I make a point of coming here. My parents eat here often, and they are very picky octogenarians. My favorite... More

The chicken pot pie and beans and cornbread were delicious. Then came dessert!!!! WOW!!! Bread pudding and peanut butter pie were yummy but that was only 2... More

I have lived in Versailles for 7 years but had never dined at Melissa's. We went as a family on the Friday night. The place was packed but it did not wait long for a table. Initially the service was very slow but once our server got caught up she was great. The food was hot and very good. Portion... More

We had lunch on Saturday November 7, 2015 at Melissa’s Cottage Café. This is a small place right on Main Street in Versailles. We got there about 1:45 and the place was pretty busy. But service was friendly and efficient. It is a small place and looks like a cottage, although it is a little dark. I had a hot... More

2 adults and 2 teenagers in our group : One chicken dinner, two meatloaf, one hot brown. Best meatloaf in the state of KY according to the 2 teenagers. Music from the 40's and 50's is great. Casual dining, like having the whole family together at your grandmother's house.

We dropped in for dinner while staying in town. It was busy but we were able to get a table within a reasonable amount of time. This is a local place and not fancy. The home style cooked food is very good and representative of the region. I had the meatloaf and was very pleased. Service was efficient and friendly.... More
