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.

Sun In My Belly is amazing!!! Hands down the best food and the best catering vendor out there. A storm came through immediately proceeding our wedding, but Max and his team worked there magic and made the venue look absolutely stunning. He knew exactly how to handle a time of complete chaos. We cannot say enough good things about Sun In My Belly. They exceeded all expectations and made our wedding day the perfect day.

So many brides say they didn't get to eat on their wedding day, but I did and it was amazing. Sun in My Belly provided the perfect menu for me and my husband. We wanted our wedding to be very relaxed (like us) and wanted more of a tapas style / buffet style menu, not a huge sit down affair. They listened to what we wanted and stayed within our budget without skimping on the good stuff: corn muffins with pulled pork, meatball sliders, tomato basil soup served with grilled cheese bites (is your mouth watering? Cause mine is!) and that was just our passed hors d'oeuvres! We'll definitely be spending our anniversary at the SIMB cafe, chowing down on SIMB mac n' cheese and reminiscing on our beautiful wedding day!

We opted for a buffet rather than a seated dinner - SiMB laid it out very artfully, and was able to accommodate our guests with dietary restrictions. In fact, they prepared a special entree for our one vegan friend, found her amongst our guests, and made sure that she got it - service that we didn't even ask for. Amazing! Our friend was thrilled and said that she'd never eaten so well at a wedding! SiMB was easy to work with, the food was fresh AND delicious, and the staff were helpful, efficient, and kind. Hire them - you won't regret it!

We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Sun In My Belly.

Even though our wedding was out of state (Western NC) and the venue staff made things challenging (no kitchen use), Sun In My Belly rose to the occasion. They were professional, extremely kind to us and above all delicious!

We are almost at our one-year anniversary and friends and family members still tell us how good the food was and ask for recommendations. Our guests have told us it was, “the best wedding food” they’d ever had and that our wedding was one of their, “top three.”

Sun In My Belly truly made the day special for us in so many ways. We are lifelong fans and lucky to live close enough for dinner on a regular basis.

We had Sun in My Belly cater for our wedding last year and it was amazing! We had several compliments from our guests that they thoroughly enjoyed the spread! They were so helpful and willing to work with our wants and needs! I was wanting a classy Southern spread for our Cocktail Hour, and we were smitten with several appetizers and were having to chose between between the Fried Green Tomatoes and the Pimento Cheese to finish out our menu. Our contact there suggested combining them and putting the Pimento Cheese on top of the Fried Green Tomato. Life changing! I so appreciated their willingness to make custom changes to accommodate us. The set-up was gorgeous and it was so wonderful, as the bride, to have confidence in our menu and the hands that were delivering it. We loved the restaurant and knew that we would love the catering as well. Thank you for making our day worry free and delicious!

Let me just say that having good food at my wedding was the goal because all too often it's dried up chicken and wilted salads unless you can afford $100 a head. Well, that's what I thought, anyway. SIMB delivered like no other on the food front at a very reasonable rate. When you go to leave the venue and there is literally no food left, you know you had a successful choice. The staff was also well equipped to serve up drinks and keep everything refreshed. Our guests kept commenting on the quality of food, the amount of vegetarian choices that weren't the salad, and the creatively refreshing drink options.

On the vegetarian option note, definitely a good choice if you need something for yourself or others with dietary restrictions but not everyone will have. SIMB does an excellent job at balancing enough goodies for meat lovers while keeping veggie folks happy. They'll even do vegan upon request.

Overall, I'm happy with the quality of food, the happiness of my guests, and the gorgeous linens Max, Emily, and team secured for my wedding. Highly recommend them if you have an event you need catered!

I can not even start to tell you how many compliments I received on the food at my wedding. Max and his team are awesome! I was the first wedding at my venue and Max pulled it off like he had done 50 weddings at this venue. All the things I was clueless about he stepped in and calmed all my fears (locations of stations, lines at the bar, traffic flow, etc) Sun in my Belly provided delicious food for my wedding....but did SO much more too! I highly recommend Sun in My Belly for any event! : )

Sun in My Belly did an amazing job for my wedding! When I first approached my mother and told her I wanted a vegetarian wedding, she freaked out, thinking that the guests would leave hungry. After out first tasting, she no longer had that fear. The hardest part was choosing which yummy selections we wanted on our menu. We had too many choices, and Allison was so accommodating to all our special requests. Even now, a month later, people’s first comment to me is how much they loved the food. The presentation and service was great as well. I couldn’t be more pleased. Max and Emily even helped with decorating suggestions. They all really made my special day flow flawlessly. I couldn’t be more pleased. Everyone who attended was so impressed with Sun in My Belly, that my brother and his fiancé are using them for their upcoming wedding as well.

My husband and I got married on May 14, 2011 at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Many vendors were responsible for making our wedding memorable, but the professionals from Sun in my Belly provided catering that our guests are still raving about months later.
When my husband and I first got engaged, we knew we wanted our wedding to incorporate a few essential elements: a beautiful venue, a great band, and fantastic food. We had been to weddings that served room temperature, overcooked meals; we wanted to treat our guests to truly delicious food. Why sacrifice taste and quality at one of the biggest celebrations of your life?
Enter Sun in my Belly Catering + Event Design. From the first tasting, we were awed by the attention to detail in food preparation and presentation. Max, the Executive Director, guided us through our options, from menus, to linens, to table arrangements. His creative vision helped us achieve a stunning backdrop on which to serve the chef’s creations on the night of our wedding.
In keeping with their commitment to local and fresh ingredients, Sun in my Belly artfully displayed a spread of delicacies that were both in season and cooked to perfection – no small feat considering the amount that had to be prepared. Our guests chased after trays of passed hors d’ oeuvres and returned to the buffet stations for second and third helpings.
The team from Sun in my Belly made our dreams for our wedding reception a reality. Their impeccable service, streamlined organization, and passion for excellent cuisine eliminated the stress that normally accompanies event planning, making me one happy bride.

When my husband and I chose our venue for our wedding, they gave us a list of recommendations for caterers. This was ideal, knowing that this list of vendors that had worked the gardens and were highly trusted. In seeing the list, I chose Sun and my Belly right off the bat because they are known in Atlanta for delicious and creative food (plus had a great name!!). I will say that we met with several other companies and no one compared what so ever to their customer service, pricing and wonderful selections. After deciding on Sun in my Belly, we found out that they were typically the top choice for those who booked at our location.

In describing what we envisioned, the kind of tastes we have, as well as services we expected, Max and his staff listened and made us feel comfortable with no pressure. I trusted everyone I met and had no fear that they wouldn't deliver exceptional service and tasty dishes!

Susan and the event staff keep us well informed on scheduling and set up throughout the whole process and on the day of our wedding. The food was wonderful; still to this day, our guest rave about the food (because it wasn't typicall drab wedding food!). It wasn't just mouth watering, it was beautifully arranged and the staff was attentive and friendly.

I can honestly tell you that Sun in my Belly will never disappoint! They are on my speed dial for any future events that I have. Thank you again for helping make our special day unforgettable!!!

Max is orgainzed, responsive and super professional. He worked with our coordiantor and florist with ease. We were taken care of every step of the way and their waiters and bar staff were wonderful!

If I ever need catering in Atlanta again I will certainly go with SIMB.

We absolutely loved Sun in My Belly. It all started with our tasting, which was held at their cafe in Atlanta. They were really nice about being flexible with timing, because we live 9 hours away and were planning from afar. Much of our planning was done long distance and they made that very easy for us to do.

The food is incredible, too. And, they worked with us on a menu that would please my meat eating husband and myself, the vegetarian. They packed us a wonderful to go box and had plates ready for us to go when we sat down at our table. I was very surprised at their pricing; it's very reasonable.

The only reason I give a half star less on professionalism is that it was a bit difficult to figure out who exactly we were working with. We conversed with Max the entire time, but different people were sometimes cc'd on emails. All of the above were very professional, timely, and helpful, but I like to know exactly who I can speak to about things, and it wasn't always clear.

I really enjoyed working with their team and would highly recommend them!

They did outstanding on all aspects.
Worked with/to our budget (HUGE factor in Atlanta with wedding catering).
Their menu selection to choose from was amazing, literally everything/anything was a choice. The tasting was incredible, all food items were absolutely delicious, more than expected quantity, etc.
They guided the process carefully, and worked with us on our level (we were experienced with planning and catering events). They have the ability to do everything from manage the process, ceremony, venue, etc., to linens, tabelware, settings, etc.,etc., and are well-qualified and well-experienced to do an excellent job with any of the services they offer.
They stood out above all other vendors and made-up for any areas that any other vendor may have slipped (our cake vendor was our mistake). They did everything they said they would do and more, without asking.
Their food and service impressed all of our guests, including my family members who are unabashed, discerning, restaurant owners, chefs, and caterers themselves.
I do not have these types of compliments often, but SIMB is more than deserving, I would recommend them wholly and will definitely work with them again someday, without any question!

My experience with SIMB was amazing. They were responsive to the (probably) hundreds of e-mails I sent while planning our wedding! I never had to stress or worry that things wouldn't be taken care of because SIMB is thorough and so collaborative when planning. I met with my coordinator/florist and someone from the catering team and we talked through my ideas and they provided amazing suggestions! Use their expertise and trust them! Everything came together beautifully the day of! The food was amazing, the signature cocktail was a hit, and everything flowed wonderfully. We received compliments from practically everyone on the food and display! "Best wedding food I've ever had!" and "I want to eat that mac 'n cheese everyday of my life!" were thrown around repeatedly! I couldn't have been more pleased! You're going to pay a little more than your run of the mill caterer but it is 100% worth every penny!

Sun in My Belly did a great job with our catering. I still have people singing praises about the food at our wedding. Looking back, I just wish I could have eaten more of the wild mushroom ravioli and fried green tomatoes, those were my two favorites. T was the manager in charge of our event, and we could not have asked for anyone better. She was reliable, reassuring, so incredibly friendly, and professional. She was one of my favorite vendors. The only thing I had an issue with was how long it took to get the contract correct and finalized. The person in charge of the contracts portion was not quick to respond, and a lot of times would send me the same contract without making the changes I had requested. However, it was completely worth going through that to have the wonderful food we did, at the great price we got it for, working with one of the most reliable and friendliest vendors in the industry.

Sun in my belly is expensive, but comparable to others and good at what they do. The food is absolutely incredible (even the leftovers the night after were divine!). Emily was our day-of-wedding-coordinator, and FABULOUS. We met twice, and she knew exactly what I wanted and delivered on the day. I don't want to think about what the day would have been like without her! We happened to get married during the Flood of 2009 weekend, and Emily maintained the vision I had. If I were to do it all over, I would definitely have used Sun in my Belly and Emily.

We were quite pleased with Sun in My Belly. Our venue didn’t have much of a kitchen space for the caterer, and I insisted on supplying my own bar. Neither of these was an issue to SiMB. They also had no trouble when confronted with a guest list that included lactose intolerant guests, celiacs, vegetarians, pescatarians and more. In fact, we had several of the guests with dietary restrictions tell us how excited they were to go to a wedding where they could actually eat a full meal. SiMB also made sure that we got to eat a proper meal. They had appetizers ready for us when we snuck off before the first dance, and then made sure food was waiting for us after the dance. Even when things didn’t go perfectly during the planning process, SiMB stepped up to make things right. After we had a less than perfect tasting, SiMB promptly offered to do it again (we passed, as we understood that the host had an off-day, it happens). Simply put, when it came to what mattered to us—staying on budget, and delivering outstanding food and service—SiMB came through with shining colors.

Sun in My Belly did an amazing job catering our wedding this past April. We were so impressed with how perfectly everything turned out, and the food was phenomenal! I can't tell you how of our guests told us that night and in the weeks afterward how good the food was. The big hits were definitely the pesto trout, sweet potato hash, and an amazing penne pasta. We were so impressed with how friendly and helpful the entire staff was. Even if there were a few hiccups, as I'm sure there always are on any wedding day, we never knew a thing. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day, and Sun in My Belly was a huge part of that. Throughout the whole planning process, they were always very personable, flexible, and helpful...and always very understanding of a bride in panic-mode. They provide and coordinate everything all the way from the food, to the linens, all the way to the clean up(and everything in between). They also were great as far as working with our budget. I would recommend them to anyone planning a catered event.

Sun In My Belly are amazing. Not only was the food so good but they were extremely flexible with the payment. We had a huge increase in our guest count right before the wedding which raised our bill quite a bit and they were amazing in coming up with solutions. We did have a small bit of trouble communicating through email but it all worked out wonderfully and any problems were related to the planning service they offer (not the catering). I would recommend them to everyone.

My husband and I can't recommend Sun in My Belly highly enough. As soon as we signed our contract with them, I knew that I was well on my way to having a great wedding - and that proved to be absolutely right! Not only was their food phenomenal, but their day-of coordination services were fantastic. Emily Gomez was right there with me every step of the way both as my catering coordinator and day-of coordinator, which made the whole planning process that much easier. Not only did SIMB provide top-knotch services, but they were also able to work within our budget and made sure that Andrew and I felt comfortable with every decision we made. I can't thank Sun in My Belly enough! They truly helped make the best day of my life that much better.

I want to start out by saying that Sun in my Belly's food is incredible. I've loved the restaurant for a while which is why I wanted them to cater our wedding. The food at the wedding was delicious and I have gotten tons of compliments on it. The servers were all very professional and did a great job.
We had a few problems leading up to the wedding however. We worked with several different people at SIMB, and we were never sure who our point person was. We liked all of them - but it seemed like we were having to repeat ourselves everytime we met because it was someone new. Our space at the venue was tight - and every person seemed to have a different solution for fitting everyone - the week of the wedding we probably made 6 different seating plans. In addition, the person who came to our walk through at the venue wasn't even the person who was at the wedding. However - when we complained about this they gave us a small discount which was appreciated.
Overall - SIMB served great food and I think that's really the most important thing so I would recommend them!

The food was so delicious on my wedding day that I would use Sun in my Belly again despite a few problems. They did reimburse me accodingly for the issues. We had two guests that were vegans and they forgot to prepare the special vegan meals for these guests. While they did scramble to put something together, it was too late and the guests had already eaten salad and potatoes. We were supposed to have our speciality cocktails served in mason jars because that fit in with the theme of our rustic wedding (and I had candles in mason jars throughout the venue to tie in this theme) but they were not served in the mason jars. They forgot the mint for the drinks, too. One of the staff members was rude to the caretaker of a family member. Aside from these issues, they did a good job and the food was so good that I would use them again if we did it over again.

We chose SIMB for our wedding reception that took place in Sept or 2013. Even though our wedding was over 6 months ago our guests are still raving about how delicious the food was at our wedding. We live in the Kirkwood neighborhood and have always frequented the restaurant so when it came time to selecting a caterer we went straight to SIMB. We are so happy we made that decision as our table linens, dishware, bar service, appetizers, and main courses were amazing.I would definitely recommend SIMB for anyone who is looking for a great caterer for their wedding or any event. Thanks SIMB staff for all your hard work!

Food was good. My guests had great things to say about the food, in fact.

But the negotiating process was a nightmare. We felt that we were being backed into a corner to spend much more money than we expected.
Our wedding was at home and was very DIY. All we wanted was food, no rentals, and no pointless extra fees.
There are tons of hidden fees, and sometimes the math was even wrong... making it seem like they were hoping to slip something by us to charge more. I obviously didn't trust that we were in the best hands, and we had to fight to get what we wanted. Ultimately, we had to be a little rude so that our point would be made, which was just uncomfortable.

If they had handled our business better, I would have wonderful things to say because the food really was great.
But nope I would not recommend them to anyone unless you have money to burn.
