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 caf茅, 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鈥檚 a pleasure to meet you.

We were founded in 1996 by Alison Lueker, executive chef and co-mastermind behind Sun in my Belly Caf茅 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鈥檚 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 Caf茅 in Kirkwood. After opening our Kirkwood Caf茅 in the historic Bailey鈥檚 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

Delicious Food For Our Wedding Day

We used Sun in My Belly to cater our wedding at The Wimbish House on April 15th. From initial contact, it felt like we were in good, knowledgeable, experienced hands, which was one relief from the stress of planning our wedding. The food at the tasting was delicious, and we knew our guests would love it. We chose to go with two tapas stations with shrimp and grits, haricots verts, caesar salad, panzanella salad, wild mushroom ravioli, bourbon + pecan grilled chicken, mac n cheese, and coca cola glazed ham. They were able to accommodate a few guests who are vegan (and one with a soy allergy) with a rigatoni lentil bolognese and vegan panzanella salad. It meant a lot to us that they were able to make these modifications. We also had the fried chicken endive cups, carolina pulled pork on corn muffins, and fried green tomatoes (*drool*) as our hors d'oeuvres. For dessert, we had a special 24" wide cake from Cake by Anna and mini red velvet and mini smores cupcakes. (Thanks to Esther and team for cutting that cake!) Everything went absolutely flawlessly and multiple times our guests told us how much they enjoyed the food and the wedding. Thanks again to the SIMB team for all their hard work. We'll be recommending them to all our friends and family and dining at the restaurant again soon.

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!

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.
