This is a place we done fairly often and regularly take out of town guests. It is always delicious and friends always want to go back when they visit again. Our favorites are tahini tofu and the pancakes. But they often have really good specials. Their location makes outdoor dining a nice people watching spot. It's casual and easy and... More

Excellent food and service, at a great value. I especially recommend the cheese grits, which are the best in Decatur. Great for brunch.

The family visited here and we all had great breakfast's. We had eggs, pancakes, french toast, bacon, sausage, home fries and grits and they were all amazing! The atmosphere is very cozy and cute. We all would visit here again on our next visit.

Breakfast can be a challenge when trying to find a place that does it well and without the boring usual eggs/pancakes/waffles routine. This place gets it right. The pancakes have a nice hint of cinnamon, the home fries- a touch of garlic, the variety of offerings is terrific. The coffee is hot and always refilled...Service is friendly....No need to seach...

I was in Decatur for a weekend seminar and I love my Sunday brunch...Sweet Melissa's was DELICIOUS! Home town feel, fresh, delicious food, and extremely friendly, local waitstaff. Their special cream cheese...a blend of ricotta and cream cheese...was like icing on the cake! (bagel in this case). If you like great breakfasts; fresh, flavorful and delicious, don't miss Sweet Melissa's!

Great Reuben!!! Busy lunch location and service can be slow so plan appropriately. Walk in and seat yourself. Good selection on menu.

After our first visit to Sweet Melissa's my wife commented,"They get breakfast in the South". I have to defer to her on that since she spent a couple of years in Atlanta but this small place in downtown Decatur certainly confirms her observation. Sad to say we've had a lot of difficulty finding a decent breakfast place in the DC... More

There is an great variety of breakfast platters. I had a skillet that was an excellent mix of potatoes and grilled veggies - topped with melted cheese and egg. The rest of the family had more standard fare that they "built" themselves. Coffee was good. Literally around the corner from the MARTA station, so an easy start to the day.... More

Had lunch there yesterday (fish and cheese grits--very good!) and couldn't wait for another fix at breakfast today. My husband ordered shrimp and grits and ham for breakfast and very happily finished off my giant biscuit. I like the decor, with a very good showing of photography by Chris Hanley and some interesting mobiles hanging from the ceiling. It's not... More
