My husband and I visited Sweet Melissa's while in Decatur for a conference and couldn't have asked for a better spot for breakfast. The staff is friendly and accommodating, the food arrives quickly, the portions are great and the flavor is amazing. I ordered the Sunrise Grill and would absolutely order it again; the home fries and salsa were fabulous!

If you are looking for a great place for a Sunday brunch, Sweet Melissa's is a spot to consider. Located in downtown Decatur, this spot is conveniently located, and on Sunday, there is live music as a backdrop for good food and fellowship. Great team of wait staff and everyone always greets you with a smile. I have taken several... More

Good coffee that the first tip-off. And plenty of it. Oh and good eggs, special french toast, fluffy pancakes and did I mention the coffee and the service? Start your day a little bit better ;-)

Trendy breakfast spot in the heart of Decatur. Busy even late morning but no wait and the staff is super friendly. Loved the New Orleans omelette with shrimp and sausage. Portions are generous so come hungry. Would come here regularly if I lived in Atlanta.

Very accommodating. The wait staff sat us right away. Brought us coffee and a smile and was simply delightful. She didn't hesitate when I ordered "off-menu" item and substituted happily. She was quick with suggestions and refills. The restaurant was very busy, but she handled her tables with efficiency and grace. We never once had to wait for refills, extra... More

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
