Whatever you order, it's going to be fresh and delicious. Right down to the fruit cups, which are filled with large portions of ripe fruit- not the usual squares of canned fruit that most restaurants serve, Brunch also features a live band, so I danced table side while waiting for our order! I return each time I visit DeCatur and... More

Great Breakfast spot. Portions are very generous. Owners walk around and serve mimosas(on New Years day at least) Staff is friendly and very helpful. Food is extremely good. Great Coffee

Our extended family ate breakfast twice at the very popular Sweet Melissa's, on the Thursday and Friday mornings before Christmas, while attending a family wedding in Decatur. Each time, we had a large party (once over 15 people), and the restaurant accommodated our group on a first-come, first-served basis. Sweet Melissa's has a large breakfast menu. Most of us opted...

Sweet Melissa's has everything you would look for in a homey Cafe -- good coffee, good home fries and a diverse menu with a lot of interesting choices. I had the grilled polenta with eggs and shrimp, and it was fabulous.

Enjoyed breakfast here but probably would give other places a try before returning. Food was good but not exceptional. Very close to Decatur Marta so convenient.

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.

Sweet Melissa's has been a Decatur mainstay for almost 30 years. Their dedication to quality is why. There is no weak section on the menu. This is one of those rare places where you can order anything on the menu with confidence. If you are visiting the Decatur area and want to visit a local's favorite spot, you found it.... More
