We were on a short vacation in Decatur and the hotel recommended this cafe. We really enjoyed our food and it wasn't expensive. Portions are generous and the service was good. It was very busy, as you would expect if the place has a reputation for good food at a fair price. We had breakfast there twice over a long... More

You can't beat the high quality, creative and gourmet dishes you'll get here at great prices! There is a wide variety of healthy, GF, and vegan dishes along with traditional fare with a creative twist! The service is great and this place has a loyal following! Best of all, it is casual, non pretentious and if you have a sweet... More

Fresh ingredients are combined to make scrumptious delectable food that is both delicious and hearty.... An excellent value. Live music on Sunday's is a plus! Love it!

I know lots of people who love Sweet Melissa's for breakfast/brunch, but if you are even slightly claustrophobic or have any auditory sensory issues. Skip it! I find the food to be mediocre at best- they don't even have real butter to serve. The coffee is Batdorf & Bronson which I adore, but they even manage to mess that up!... More

Sweet Melissa's is only open for a few meals each week, so they focus on their delicious menu. The orange juice is fresh-squeezed, the omelets are delicious (with custom options), the staff is ever-present (and often ever-humorous), and they pften have music venues.

Great breakfast/brunch place. Love, love, loved the yogurt pancakes. Madd Hatter platter gives you a ton of food eggs, meat, potatoes and the yummy pancakes.

Really great eatery! Breakfast here if huge and really good! On Sunday's they have live music! Service is quick even when they are very busy. They seem to handle large crowds with ease(Easter morning) and a smile!

This is such a good breakfast place with so many choices that you won't get tired of it. We ate there several mornings while in town and thoroughly enjoyed it each and every time. Our group especially liked the omelettes such as Goose's special and the New Orleans one. They even brought out a cajun sauce and a garlic sauce... More

We breakfasted here, and the bacon was fresh and done just right. There was a nice atmosphere with jazz vocals playing. One thing: there were some very dusty/cobwebby (leftover from Christmas?) decorations hanging over some of the tables ... a bit unappetizing.
