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.

amazing food, accommodating staff
There are not enough compliments to give Sun In My Belly! We worked primarily with Megan and she was genuine, kind, and incredibly accommodating throughout our entire planning process. This was our top choice of caterers from the get-go, but we were initially worried that we wouldn't be able to afford them... however they worked with us and our budget and made it happen! The food was fresh and delicious and our guests were raving about it all night long. I have been hearing from a few guests in the days after our wedding that some of the food was cold by the time they got it.. which is a bummer, but it didn't seem to change anyone's overall opinion of the dinner. Our vegan/vegetarian/and nut-allergic guests were also so impressed that they had made accommodations for them- and they didn't have to go hungry just because of their restrictions! Sun In My Belly showed us the world of difference there is between event catering and a restaurant that offers catering. This will definitely be where we go to celebrate all of our anniversaries! Seriously, I could gush about them for daysSent on 11/14/2018

SIMB was perfection
Sun in My Belly did such an amazing job catering my wedding!! I am such a big foodie and it was very important to me that we not only have pretty dishes, but that we had yummy ones that everybody would love. Leading up to everything, Marissa, Michelle, and Max were always super responsive and helpful. When we met with Marissa and Michelle, both were SO personable and were so accommodating when I had specific things I did and did not want, and even let me create a vegan entree for my guests (that everybody said was SO good!!). Everything came out perfectly and we had so many compliments!! I highly recommend SIMB! :)Sent on 11/20/2018

Sun In My Belly provided a wonderful rehearsal dinner for our son and his bride-to-be. They were easy to work with and made great recommendations as far as menu and presentation. The quality of the food was outstanding and very "fresh or farm to table". They customized the menu to meet the desires of a "foody" group of young people. Will definitely use them again.Sent on 07/13/2017
We had the pleasure of having Sun in my Belly at our venue in August of 2016. Everything about their service was perfect. Their staff was attentive and helpful, their food was amazing and we loved that they used real plates and drinkware to reduce waste! Their food was healthy, freshly made and so delicious! I would highly recommend Sun in my Belly for your next event.
