Best brunch in the ATL

We love Sweet Melissa's! Yummy brunch and great, friendly atmosphere right on the Square in Decatur. Any of the egg dishes are delicious for brunch. The egg salad and tuna salad are wonderful.

I don't review many local places, but I love breakfast food and had the opportunity to eat here today. I really enjoyed the extensive menu, there was so much to choose from. I selected the New Orleans omelet w/ cheese grits and the small pancake. The small pancake was indeed small 😳 which had me looking like 'hey, what gives?!!'... More

I like Sweet Melissa's twists on classic dishes. Their breakfast burrito comes in the form of a breakfast quesadilla, and the salsa they pair with it makes it top notch in my book. The breakfast prices are high, but you always get plenty of food. I have never had a meal that I didn't like, but I have had meals... More

I visited Sweet Melissa's on a trip to Decatur. In attempting to go for Sunday breakfast/brunch, there was a crowd outside, but the hostess was accurate in our wait times and there are a few small shops nearby, benches dot the street, and there is a gazebo and central open space at the end of the block. Our servers were... More

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.
