Sun in My Belly had been on my Yelp bookmark list for a while and I was glad to be able to check it off my long list of places to eat in Atlanta.
Parking at Sun in My Belly is a bit hard on the weekends because it is in a residential area and your choices are either street parking or parking in the lot behind Sun in My Belly. And if you don’t know exactly where Sun in My Belly is located and you blink, you’ll miss the minuscule sign at the top of the restaurant.
Also, Sun in My Belly is serious about their reservations. If you aren’t on time they will kindly call you and let you know your reservation will be canceled. However they are more than accommodating to make sure you are seated as soon as possible.
I ordered Sun in My Belly’s Belly Benedict which is a twist on the traditional Eggs Benedict. The Belly Benedict is two poached eggs with chipotle hollandaise sitting atop a sweet potato and honey glazed bacon hash and sautéed spinach, served with a buttermilk biscuit.
Although the hollandaise sauce was supposed to be made with chipotle, I didn’t taste a hint of heat. That was rather disappointing because one of the reasons I ordered the Belly Benedict is I love anything made with chipotle.
Also, I didn’t detect the honey glazed bacon in the hash. By now you know I love bacon so that was definitely a fail for me. I would prefer if Sun in My Belly used thicker chunks of bacon. Whatever bacon they did use got lost in the shuffle of the hash.
However the combination of the spinach and sweet potatoes was spectacular, and the poached eggs were perfect.
I plan to recreate this dish at home in the future, but I’ll be sure to use a thick cut of bacon in my version of the Belly Benedict.
Whenever I look for places to eat in Atlanta for brunch one of my must requirements is a place that has affordable mimosas, because ya know I like sipping on a budget.
Trina, of the Baby Shopaholic, and I split a carafe of mimosas. The carafe was less than $20 and came with a full bottle of champagne. For the price of their mimosas alone I give Sun in My Belly a thumbs up as one of the brunch places to eat in Atlanta.
The mimosas definitely put smiles on the faces of Trina and I!
Service was okay at Sun in My Belly. Our waitress seemed more interested in getting details on Monet’s hair than making sure we had everything we needed at our table. At one point I had to get up and find my own hot sauce after a prolonged wait. But other than that, our waitress was pleasant.
I forgot to take pics of the decor, but Sun in My Belly’s decor and atmosphere is hip and jazzy.
Customers looked like they were Team Brunch Hard elites, and the sound system was cranking out the best oldies from The Temptations and more.
Sun in My Belly is definitely one of the places to eat in Atlanta that you put a little effort in you attire to enjoy bites and sips with friends, and I had a blast at my blogger brunch with these beauties.
What’s your requirement for a place to brunch at?
XOXO, Miss Foodie Fab!
