My mom and I visited Sun in My Belly in Kirkwood last Saturday for brunch. One of my friends calls this restaurant the best real life version of Pinterest and it’s true. The service was a little slow but we were in no hurry and had a great time sitting outside underneath the string lights and colorful umbrellas.
I’ve only been to Sun in My Belly once before and it was delicious. I knew this restaurant was popular for brunch so I braced my mom for a long wait but it was only half an hour. We walked around the block, looking at all of the homes in the Kirkwood neighborhood, and didn’t wait too long for a spot on the patio.
We did wait a bit for a waiter but we were in no rush. When he came by, with mason jars full of water, we ordered some coffee. My mom just ordered regular coffee but I got a vanilla latte. It was great! Sweet but no too sweet and just the right amount of milk. We also ended up with another one for free, needless to say, it was a highly caffeinated afternoon.
Both dishes were great but the Belly Benedict was the winner in my book. The chipotle hollandaise, crispy bacon and sweet potato all complement each other perfectly and it comes with a lavender infused biscuit on the side that is to-die-for. The P.B.L.T. was yummy too and would be the perfect hangover cure with the pimento cheese and fried egg.
If you’re in Atlanta, I recommend giving this spot a try! It’s becoming one of my favorites in the city!
