I had the absolute best breakfast I have had in a really long time. The folks there are super nice. The food and COFFEE was amazing. You could get in and out quickly if you want or have a relaxing time. Perfect for solo diners or large groups. I'm serious...the food was really amazing.

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.

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
