Sun in my Belly - Neighborhood Cafe
Mind blownThe ambiance in the front is that of a coffee shop... because it is one, but in the back it's a whole 'nother story. I used a Scoutmob deal that entitled us to two salads, two entrees, two drinks, and an appetizer and a dessert to share. Not bad, especially considering how absolutely delicious the food is at Sun in My Belly. I'd been here before for brunch on the weekends, but I urge you to give this a try for a nice dinner. The meatloaf was outstanding. Really, outstanding. And my husband was having a love affair with the salmon. Definitely a great place to eat some delicious foods. The wine/beer list isn't extensive or impressive, but it doesn't matter what you drink when you're eating the very best.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMa hidden gemdefinitely a place i would recommend to anyone that came into atlanta. has great food, awesome feel, and is a one of a kind. can't wait to go back5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSIMB: I hate to tell the truth...about how wonderful it is, because I hate for it to become crowded. The food is creative and delicious. .Most things on the menu are local and organic, and they use incredibly fresh ingredients. All of the meat is ethically sourced and local, and there are many vegetarian options. For brunch, the French toast and the pimento cheese omelet, for dinner try the mushroom ravioli. There can be somewhat of a wait (which is why I hesitated to review,but decided to be noble). The ambience is early-modern-hardware-store. Truthfully, it is a renovated hardware store, and the ambience is good - though a bit loud at times. As with some places, sometimes the music is a tad loud, which makes people yell over it. But the food is worth it.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner service is specialThis is the second dinner service I've had at SIMB, and this one was even better. The options for a prix fixe or just picking from available courses is excellent, and we tried as much as we could. Enjoyed everything. Liked that I could actually hear our conversation and that the vibe is casual but could be romantic.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat new find!We couldn't have been more happy with our dining experience from top to bottom. The food was great, reasonably priced, served hot and with amazing, unique flavors. You really should give it a shot, you will not be dissapointed. The interior is masterfully designed. I have to admit, I may or may not have instagrammed some of the colored mason jars against the wall. :)4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice experience here,Very nice experience here, as usual. The food was tasty and actually came out much faster than on other occasions. There was some confusion about what came with the daily jar, but they brought us what we thought was supposed to come after some discussion. Dessert stole the show for me. Blueberry bar and chocolate bomb - YUM! Always a nice evening in the neighborhood at SIMB. Hope to be back soon.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dinner was delicious fromOur dinner was delicious from start to finish! And our server was delightful!

Yes!I've always loved brunch at Sun in my Belly, but now I have another reason to go back: dinner! To start, we got the special, which was a baked potato dip in a little mason jar with grilled naan--oh my gosh! So good! Then we got salads: the hermes was incredible and the caesar was one of the best I've ever had. For the main course, we had the fried chicken, mac and cheese, and collard greens plus the steak tenderloin with Gorgonzola sauce and parmesan mashed potatoes. Our waitress was charming, attentive, and simply a delight.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWHAT a treat! The food atWHAT a treat!
