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.
Pros: Delicious food, tastes homemade, always hot (a sticking point with me), good portions, good music on Sundays
Cons: Parking in Decatur, but I've found if you park in the Eddies Attic area and walk across, there's usually a space
