Generous portions of breakfast staples to start the day off right. And if the seasonal pumpkin pancakes are on the menu, be sure to sample.
Yummy – I'm pretty sure that I dream about the pancakes. I can't wait to go back. We tell everyone just how great this place it:)
Special? – Just tried their lunch special that was posted on their board. A "cuban" sandwich... with "two" sides, and a drink. After paying over $10, I have to say that the lunch special was neither. Lunch: I only got one side...(okay I thought- I don't really need two), but the size of the sandwich was tiny!
Special: $10... really?!?
Never again Sweets.
Sunday brunch at Sweet Melissa's? Never Again! – After eating at Sweet Melissa's this past Sunday I would not recommend it to anyone I liked. The handling of seating seemed chaotic. We had a group and was told it was no problem to be seated together . When it came time to seat us they split us up and seated us NOT even close to each other! There was a live band playing which made the noise inside the already small space worse. The service was slow also. Finally being able to order the "famous" french toast , a "Full Order " of bacon and coffee, I was very hungry by this time. The food came after awhile and what a surprise. My french toast was 4 "Solid" slices of challah...in no way light and flavorful. The powered sugar sprinkled very liberally on them had more flavor. My "Full Order" of bacon was 3 soggy slices of nondescript bacon. A full order of bacon is $3.00! A dollar a greasy slice. The waitress never came back to give us more coffee and we had to hail another down just to get the check finally. If you're looking for a nice brunch place for a sunday morning to relax and have a good meal...Sweet Melissa's misses out on that.
Excellent Breakfast in Decatur: Sweet Melissas – I have loved this restaurant for years, always wished they were open evenings because the breakfast and lunch food so good. They make the best waffles I've tasted - with fresh strawberries and bananas if ordered that way. The breakfast burritos are delicious. My favorites, which I alternate between, are the Supreme Breakfast (with delicious supreme cheese in the scrambled eggs) and the "Hopple-Popple" which has pepperoni and sausage in the scrambled eggs. I love coming during Passover so I can get Matzah with my eggs. Omelettes are too big for one person and delicious. The owner is very friendly, usually there and circulating to get feedback; the wait people are friendly and after a few visits remember that I like my eggs soft scrambled and my biscuit hot, without me asking. I have introduced many friends to the place, all of whom have agreed and go back. We usually go on Saturdays, but Sundays they usually have jazz music being played . In good weather the atmosphere of hanging out in front with the people waiting to go in next door to the bar is fun and convivial. I also notice on Saturdays many of the same people again and again - the food is so good one would definitely be a repeat customer. Also, they are constantly going by with coffee, and even if the waitress with coffee is not "your" waitress, she offers it to you - they are so friendly and help each other out. I heartily recommend Sweet Melissas for delicious, filling food and good treatment by everyone.
unfriendly, horrible food and attitude – Hi, we just went to Sweet Melissa's for breakfast and it was anything but sweet. Waitresses ( with the exception of one of the girls) are rude, do not smile and have attitude if you dare to ask for anything. The owner should really re-train the people or hire new ones because they act like you are bothering them and not giving them their paycheck. Nobody makes eye contact when you waiting in line, food is very OVERPRICED and not all that great. The strawberries ( that cost extra) were far for fresh , the bacon was served burnt and the pancakes were flat and tasteless. It takes forever to get you check and the card back. I think they take it for granted that people in Decatur will support local businesses no matter what and they are wrong. I will NEVER recommend that place again to any of my customers.
Quite possibly the worst food I've ever been served at a public establishment....seriously! – I honestly cannot believe that anyone would consider serving what I attempted to ingest from Sweet Melissa's yesterday.
It was day 2 of my insatiable craving for a decent breakfast burrito in the city of Decatur when I finally stumbled across Sweet Melissa's menu online. On day 1, I walked all over downtown in search of a place that was open, and served them. I actually saw that Sweet Melissa's did then, but because it was listed on the menu at $8.99, I moved on.
On day 2, however, my craving for a B.B. grew ever more present, so after 15 minutes of browsing various establishment's menus online, I came to a decisive conclusion that Sweet Melissa's is the only place in downtown Decatur that serves them. I headed right over.
For $8.99, you get a burrito minimally stuffed with refried beans, eggs, cheese, salsa, and sour cream. For $1.50 more, you can add your choice of omelette fillings, a.k.a. "meat." I had to have turkey sausage in mine, so my out-the-door price was around $14, after tax and a $2 tip for my very attentive server.
When my order came out, the server opened the box to show me, and the first thing I noticed was, only one salsa. Without hesitation, she ran to the back to get me more and when she came back out with them she said, "I brought you 2 more, because our salsa is so awesome."
Boy, was she wrong. There salsa is no doubt, Pace Picante sauce. No doubt! Furthermore, their "refried beans" taste more like bbq baked beans, all mushed up, and the turkey sausage, tasted like a hotdog. So, the end result was a breakfast burrito that tasted like it was filled with a can of beanie weanies; and not even Van Kamp's, but the store brand beanie weanies.
My recommendation to Sweet Melissa's: You're not fooling anybody. Just because you throw some poo into a tortilla and put a gourmet price tag on it, doesn't mean it's actually gourmet!
My recommentation to you, the reader: Stay away from Sweet Melissa's breakfast burritos!
What Happened? – I used to LOVE Sweet Melissa's. Their food was great, the price was reasonable, and the food was plentiful. My husband and I ate there recently and noticed not only a price increase, but also a significant skimping on food. The huevres rancheros used to come with a biscuit and two tortillas slatered in eggs, salsa, and sour cream. Now, only one tortilla is served, no biscuit, and the price has increased by $1.50. Its one thing to raise prices a little, but to also reduce portions so significantly was more than we could tolerate. The restaurant was not very busy when we walked in and now we know why. With all the great breakfast choices in the area, we certainly won't be going back to Sweet Melissa's anytime soon.
Editorial Review – Casual breakfast and lunch spot on Decatur Square serves up simple fare and friendly smiles.
Really great sandwiches – I stopped by the Decatur Courthouse Square and just happened to stop in Sweet Melissa's. I'm really glad I did. The sandwiches are great. Not too expensive. Delicious fresh ingredients. Try some desert too. They're really known for those.
