A local gem

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.

We ate here twice on a recent visit to Decatur. Both the breakfast and brunch selections are delicious, we loved the mad platter. Generous portions and great service with outdoor seating available, can't wait to go back!

We held a Sunday brunch at Sweet Melissa's the morning after our son's wedding. We held it up in the loft space that connects with The Brick Store. This was a great venue and all our guests loved it. Food was delicious and service was great. It was a perfect place for the bride and groom to get some last... More

Staying at the Marriott Courtyard in Decatur. Looking for breakfast and found SWEET Melissa's around the corner. Nice surprise. Honey had French toast, my choice was yogurt and strawberries. Both good. Too much toast for honey. I got to share. Easy walk for good food. Go there. Go before nine. That's when it got crowded.

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
