Food Review: Sun In My Belly

Brunch is such a blessing. Sleeping in late only to wake up to enjoy vast amounts of food and drink. It really is the perfect idea.

I recently headed east to Kirkwood’s Sun In My Belly. The cafe is located in a sleepy part of College Avenue. Upon entering, you encounter the take-out area where you can order cups of coffee or even whole meals to-go in a deli case replete with pecan tartlets and other desserts to make you drool while waiting.

And wait you will, since it seems that this little place stays busy on Sunday mornings. I stood there for a fair amount of time while someone (presumably the host?) ran back and forth calling names, seated parties, and took orders. My boyfriend finally alerted someone behind the counter that we’d like to be added to the list and we settled into the cozy waiting area to drink our pretty good cups of house coffee.

Once we were seated, we were immediately asked if we were ready to order (we weren’t – we never saw a menu during our wait). The server politely refilled our coffee and retreated while we perused our options. There are several brunch-y type things, most notably the omelet and quiche specials of the day. There are also a good array of sandwiches available as well. Our server never came back, though, so I grabbed some random server who seemed a bit perplexed as to why I was bothering her.

As for food, I settled for the quiche, which included pancetta, cheese, and scallions (mmm… pancetta….), while the boy opted for the scrambled egg panini. The quiche was delightful, with a perfectly crumbly crust and flavorful bits of pancetta and scallions. The scrambled egg panini was also delicious. I may be biased, however, since I love anything with bacon.

What was most interesting was my side, a beautiful array of fresh berries (options include fruit, hash potatoes, or grits with most breakfast items). The berries were fresh and delicious, a mix of strwberries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries. So heavenly, especially since it’s well past berry season. Suffice to say, this is a good option for brunch (if you’re not in a hurry).

(Sun In My Belly is also provides its delicious cafe to visitors at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.)

    Don’t forget catering! They’ve done several of our office parties and do an amazing job.
