Great place for breakfast

We ate here on a Sunday around 10AM. It was crowded...we waited for a table for about 20 minutes. Service was excellent and fast. Food was wonderful. Everything from pancakes, eggs, loxs and bagels and vegetarian options. An easy walk from Agnes Scott College. Live music on Sunday mornings.

Instead of eating in our hotel on a visit to Decatur, we wandered Sweet Melissa's on the main square. Thank goodness, we arrived early on a Sat. morning as before we even had our food served, it was packed. The service was friendly and prompt. The variety of breakfast options was broad with something to suit most everyone's tastes. My... More

Service was fast and the food was very good! Omelets are a must, along with yogurt pancake, home fried potatoes, french toast and biscuit! Servers are pleasant and helpful.

The owner and staff of Sweet Melissa's cares about their customers and the food they serve. I love that our waitress offered to make me a chocolate mocha even though it is not on the menu, full of whipped cream and delicious. The moist pancakes with yogurt in the batter are to die for. My polenta, shrimp and eggs are... More

We went mid-morning on a Wednesday so there were no crowds; we had our pick of seats. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was quite good with a great variety and served nice and hot. Pricing was reasonable - four adults for about $53, not counting tip.

Sweet Melissa's is a great place for breakfast in downtown Decatur. I love the Peachtree Polenta. They blend the vegetables into the polenta and then add cheese, truly wonderful. My friend said the Hoople Popple is out of the world. Exceptional service. Great prices.

Went her for breakfast on a cold morning and had to wait in line, but it was really worth it. Lots to choose from and some very different items. Lot of food and great service. Was a good start for our day.

My family and relatives living in the area met here for breakfast between Christmas and New Year's. It is quite a busy breakfast spot. We had attentive service and everyone really enjoyed their meal. I'm gluten-free, so no pancakes or french toast for me. But, other diners I was with raved about them!

We were there on a cold Sunday morning to have breakfast. It was a 20 minutes wait as the place was busy and no reservation can be made for smaller group of 8 people. Can't say anything about the breakfast, it was soo good you have to be there to know. Service very good and friendly, and there's a guy... More

A small restaurant with a fairly broad American menu. The wait staff was superfriendly, and although I was from out of state, they made me feel right at home. Good food and reasonable prices. I had the turkey salad on a bun and it was delicious.
