Hi, we are Sun in my Belly. We wear a few hats that keep us pretty busy, as we are a breakfast lunch dinner café, as well as a full service catering company. We live in the Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta but travel all over the southeast for events and weddings. We love delicious food, whimsical decor and friendly folks. It’s a pleasure to meet you. We were founded in 1996 by Alison Lueker, executive chef and co-mastermind behind Sun in my Belly Café Catering. Alison wanted to make her mark by creating an exciting, visually-driven, haute cuisine catering company for Atlanta. She was one of the first chefs in town to champion seasonally fresh, local fare that featured an artful flair, distinguished by intricate, nature-driven themes which are woven into all of her signature dishes. After traveling the world and finishing culinary school in Santa Fe, Alison landed back in Atlanta, where she decided to create the kind of food that fulfilled her passion for gorgeous, delectable and uniquely decadent cuisine. In 1998, Alison partnered with Max LeBlanc to take over a Kirkwood kitchen and bring the catering business to another level. Max’s background in both quantitative business analysis and operations management was exactly what we needed. He put himself to work creating a smoothly-run catering business and searching for a permanent home for the Sun in my Belly Neighborhood Café in Kirkwood. After opening our Kirkwood Café in the historic Bailey’s Hardware building for brunch lunch, Max and Alison balanced the cafe and catering business, while creating beautiful dishes, scrumptious meals, and phenomenal atmospheres for every occasion. Finally, after serving the Kirkwood community for almost a decade, we are proud and excited to open our doors for dinner service in 2012. We look forward to hearing from you.

I tried to do my wedding for as cheap as possible and Sun in my Belly almost was not my choice because of being thrifty. They are more expensive than some caterers but, honestly, worth every penny. My wedding was over a month ago and I am still getting calls from my guests about how great the food was. The staff was professional, amazing, and attentive. The tasting was wonderful and honestly they were such a perfect caterer. It was just amazing. I will reccomend them to every person I meet having a wedding. They were willing to try to make anything happen, to make it beautiful, and make sure everyone was happy.

OUTSTANDING. Sun In My Belly (SIMB) responded to us within 24 hours of initial contact with a great deal of information. It was clear from the start that these folks were organized, detailed and eager to please. SIMB gave us not one, but TWO tastings at no charge and ensured we got to taste every item in which we expressed interest. The Executive Chef, Alison, oversaw our tastings herself and chatted with us about every detail of our event. She offered advice and assisted us with rental tables that worked better than what our venue offered. When we couldn’t decide on just 3 hors-d'oeuvres, Alison made it easy for us by offering to do a split portion on one of our choices to allow us to serve everything we wanted. She went above and beyond to accommodate us in making our menu exactly what we wanted. The food is absolutely delicious and was so good we had trouble choosing!
Several months before the wedding date, Alison met us at our venue, requiring a 90-minute drive from Atlanta. She personally helped us determine our seating arrangement and assessed the space to determine the best options for every catering detail. On wedding day, the SIMB team were absolute pros. They got in and set up without a hitch. They made sure we had cocktails and a plate of hors-d'oeuvres waiting on us after the ceremony. As we made our way to the reception, we encountered Alison who had held a restless baby (one of the nieces) during the ceremony so that a sister-in-law could attend the ceremony (can you say above and beyond???)! The bartender was busy mixing our signature cocktail to perfection and when it ran out, she improvised by offering white wine spritzers. Those serving food were on top of every detail… even noticing a few folks that were stuck outside managing children and dogs and delivering them plates of food. These folks are absolute pros! We told Alison that we had one guest with a latex allergy and she purchased special non-latex gloves for her team to ensure no issues.

The food at sun in my belly was pretty good - however their responsiveness level was very low (they claimed to be too busy working on other events) which is not what you want to hear when your wedding is a couple of weeks away. Had to involve the venue coordinator to get a response after which they were more helpful. They would get a higher ranking if they had better customer service

After getting quotes from multiple vendors, we chose Sun in my Belly since they were able to work within our budget and we'd eaten at the restaurant before and liked their food. We worked with Leanne who was wonderful. She made sure we got fed during the reception and helped with so many things I can't list them all. Their wait abd bar staff was professional and the food was amazing. Everyone raved about it! My favs were the crab cake appetizer and the noodle bar with duck, shrimp, and pork.

I love Sun In My Belly! They provided the food and specialty drinks for our casual Mexican-themed rehearsal dinner and for our formal wedding. We received so many compliments on the food and the drinks. Everyone came expecting standard wedding fare, but Sun In My Belly really made everything stand out. They made us specialty margarita mixes that were the hit of the rehearsal dinner (I really wish I could keep those in my fridge all the time). The Mexican buffet was typical, but within our small budget and tasty (we cut out all the more expensive extras they proposed). They also gave a nice discount for doing both events. For the wedding, they really worked with us to make everything gluten and nut free, without making it seem to our guests that there was anything missing, and without ringing up the bill. One warning: they are definitely not the most responsive. I worked with Leanne, and I had to email her multiple times every time I needed anything The linens and other planning also all happened at the very last minute. I was glad that I didn't try to get rentals or event decorating services from them. In the end though, they did exactly what we wanted for everything, it was delicious, and it was within our budget.

We loved having Sun in my Belly cater our wedding. My husband and I were on a really tight budget but still wanted quality food. SIMB was flexible with us wherever possible. The quality was wonderful and our guests still rave about the bacon and French toast! We worked with Leanne and she offered creative ideas for our brunch reception. She made sure we were taken care of throughout the process and the day of our wedding! SIMB added a special touch to our wedding and we highly recommend their catering services!

First things first: Sun in my Belly came highly touted as the best caterer in Atlanta. We were planning a low-key weekday wedding with food and photography as the highlights, so we were very interested in getting the best possible food. That being said, they delivered. We were blown away with the quality of the food at our event. It was even better than the tasting. Months later, our guests are still complimenting us for serving the best food they've ever had at a wedding. It was a huge hit. In that regard, we are very happy that we chose them.

That being said, the professionalism during the booking process and the beginning of our event left something to be desired. We went back and forth with our coordinator quite often, as there was quite a bit of confusion about how we wanted the layout of our room. Even after my husband drew a map on a blueprint provided by our venue, it felt like we were not being understood. Fortunately, we were able to set everything up ourselves the day before our wedding.

After three in-person meetings and countless email and phone communications, we had established the timeline of our event to run from late afternoon to early evening. Somehow, when the contract was signed (during the tasting), a later time was printed on the contract. Despite lots of conversation between us and the coordinator, referencing the correct timeline, this was not noticed by either party. We found out immediately after our ceremony that SIMB had not shown up yet. When we got her on the phone, our coordinator actually yelled at me and said it was my fault. They arrived about an hour later, and were serving hors d'oeurves and drinks shortly after, but it made for a very awkward "cocktail hour." Again, I take responsibility for overlooking this part of the contract. But you would think that, after repeatedly discussing the timeline, our coordinator would have caught it too. I emailed them afterwards to address this and they never replied.

As a bride without a planner, I cannot thank Sun in My Belly enough for absolutely capture my vision for the reception— I could not have imagined a more beautiful and elegant staging of our event. It was stunning! Second, the food was delicious! It was hard to imagine how a buffet for seventy people could possibly reach the levels of perfection that SIMB food achieves in the restaurant, but somehow they managed it! The omelets were so tasty, the salad was excellent and the eggs Benedict and french toast were just as wonderful as I remembered from the tasting! Most importantly, the SIMB staff was simply excellent— all the servers were attentive, professional and fun to have around! Everyone’s glasses were full, tables were cleared with admirable precision, and at the end of the event, they helped my family clear out our decorations! I cannot thank Sun in My Belly enough for making the reception everything I could have asked and so so so much more. We had so much fun and I don’t think I could have relaxed enough to enjoy the day without your amazing staff under the guidance of the absolutely phenomenal Leanne.

Sun In My Belly catered my wedding at the Greystone in Piedmont Park. Max and his team delivered an outstanding event! We chose SIMB because we wanted something unique for our wedding and not many caterers in town understood our vision. When we met with Max to explain we wanted a Dim Sum style catering service with a combination of southern food and traditional Chinese food delivered as small plates, rather than shy away from our challenging catering request, Max and his team were eager to deliver our vision from the beginning. They worked with us during tastings to ensure we had exactly what we wanted for each dish. They took the time to understand and deliver what we wanted whereas several catering companies we first considered tried to convince us to do it differently in order to fit us into their own box. Max and his team curated an assortment of 10 different dishes for us (all delivered in pairs as small plates) and everything tasted unique but still authentic to the region. The food was also displayed beautifully. Many guests are still telling us that was one of the best meals they have had at a wedding. Thank you SIMB!

The culinary and events team at Sun in my Belly exceeded our expectations throughout every touch point they handled leading up to and during our wedding day. From the time of our initial tasting to our final vendor walkthrough, owner & executive director Max LeBlanc made us feel super comfortable and taken care of. Max was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, organized and attentive throughout our partnership. Because our wedding was taking place at a venue that had never hosted a wedding before, we faced some challenges throughout the planning process. Max offered up great ideas and solutions – we found workarounds that all of our partners were able to collaborate together on.

We initially engaged SIMB for our cocktail hour and seated dinner catering, but we ended up also using their resources for bar & beverage service and furniture / table / linen rentals. Their offerings from a capabilities stand point is truly impressive - it made decision making towards the end of the process really convenient and simple. Max and his team worked closely with us to customize our guest experience. They helped create an evening that was so special, authentic and magical. Our friends and family still talk about how memorable the food and service was. We feel so fortunate to have been able to experience all the amazing things the SIMB culinary and events team has to offer. Thank you SIMB for making our day and night so delicious and perfect!
