About

Hi, we are Sun in my Belly. We wear a few hats that keep us pretty busy, as we are a breakfast, lunch, and 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 that 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.

Best,

Max LeBlanc | Executive Director

Alison Lueker | Executive Chef

    Great Rehearsal Dinner and Wedding Caterer

    We hosted our Rehearsal Dinner at Sun in My Belly and also had them cater our wedding reception. Hilary, Megan, Michelle and the team were such a delight and supported us throughout the process. To be honest, we significantly underestimated just how much a caterer is responsible for with the wedding logistics, but SIMB made it feel like a breeze. We wanted to have a vegetarian station and vegan station for our guests and they were able to give us lovely options for both events so our guests could have a full range of food. We had multiple people comment both on how great the food was and how grateful they were as vegetarians or vegans to have so many options.
    Having our rehearsal dinner at the restaurant was such a treat too and made for a beautiful and intimate space. We loved working with them throughout the process!

    Absolutely perfect.

    Sun In My Belly was an amazing vendor!! Hilary was also our coordinator and having the two together was so helpful. Hilary and her team were amazing from the moment we met them through the wedding. Working with them was like planning a wedding with friends. I should also mention the food was delicious!!! We had multiple guests comment on how great the food was! Look no further for your caterer and coordinator - Sun In My Belly is who you need!

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.
