Favorite place in Atlanta. Peachtree Polenta is the Best Shrimp and Grits I've Ever Eaten. Great Scramble Eggs ,French Toast, Bacon, Pancakes. EVERYTHING. Worth the 30 minute drive for me.

We stopped in for breakfast and were not disappointed. After a short wait to be seated(they're very busy on a Saturday) we were pleased at the promptness of the wait staff. Our order took a little while to get but all were pleased with the choices and portions. Definitely a place to try when in Decatur.

True, it was a Saturday morning ... but was this place busy! Portions were very generous, and I had the largest serving of French Toast ever. It is trendy, a noisy atmosphere, but worth it.

I went here with several friends upon hearing great things about. It certainly lived up to it's good word. We went on a Saturday morning for brunch around 10:00 am and had a small wait. I had the special, which was a North Carolina Omelette. It consisted of brisket, barbecue sauce and onions. It came with 2 sides and I... More

Sweet Melissa's food was delicious. I enjoyed the music at Sunday brunch. The wait wasn't very long, but was well worth it. Best brunch shrimp polenta that I ever had.

We visited Decatur for a long weekend. We ate breakfast here our first morning and everything was so good that we returned on our third morning for more! The scrambled eggs with fresh herbs and supreme cheese were out of this world! The fresh fruit was wonderful as were the cheese grits. Pancakes and waffles were also very tasty and... More

I know prices went up at some point and people got feisty, but seriously, it's quality food and it's really not that expensive. Yes, it's breakfast/lunch, and no, it's not Waffle-House cheap, but it's also local, family-owned and uses top-notch ingredients. The service can be a little slow at times, and it can also get crowded, but it's still a... More

The menu offered a wide selection of usual breakfast suspects - omelets, pancakes, French toast, cheese grits, breakfast meats. We split the breakfast combo that included 2 eggs, 3 strips of bacon, grits and 1 piece of French toast. Everything was well prepared and tasty. It was plenty for two ! Worth trying for yourself.
