“Perfect lunch”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We went for a late lunch after visiting the MLK site and it was great. The food is fresh, not greasy and very affordable. It was perfect!

“Best Breakfast in Atlanta!!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

When I want a good breakfast I go here! I always order the same thing the Sassy Scramble ...scrambled eggs, salmon, and cream cheese!! DOnt forget the chicken sausage and the potatoes with cheese and onions! You will need a nap after this breakfast! If you go on a Sunday be prepared to wait but it is worth it!!

“One of the best breakfasts in Decatur”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

There are a number of good spots to pick from in Decatur, but Thumbs Up is usually our choice - even if we have to wait a bit on the weekends. Love the griddle grits... and the unlimited choice of things to put in your eggs... and the fact they have veggie sausage that tastes almost as good as the real thing.
