Great Food and Desserts ALWAYS!! I typically get the Smoked salmon breakfast scramble! Always DELICIOUS...Great Service and AMAZING DESSERTS!! LOVE THIS SPOT!! Check them out! You won't be disappointed!!
It is always a good Professional experience and the cakes are excellent when I go to Southern Sweets
This is one of my few go to places for lunch and desserts in Decatur. The staff is always hospitable and eager to make every visit perfect. The food is made from scratch and worth the wait. Whenever I need a specialty dessert or just the best standard sweets to take to an event, Southern Sweets always delivers on treats. The sitting area is small but it helps patrons slow down and relax or go outside on nice days. Great little hidden gem.
The carrot cake...the carrot cake. Hail, to the carrot cake. Just the right sweet, moist deliciousness...don't share, it's a solo treat. The place is slightly hard to find, but once you do... lock it in. Definitely, the sweet spot
Southern Sweets made the cakes for our wedding and they were absolutely beautiful and DELICIOUS!!! Their amaretto butter cake is amazing, but their vegan chocolate raspberry mousse cake is our ALL TIME FAVORITE! They were great to work with and we are so happy with the outcome - we got SO many compliments!! Thank you!
Love their cakes. They are very moist.
Fabulous commercial bakery serving many restaurant customers in the Atlanta metro, that also has a retail operation for breakfast and lunch. You can't go wrong here. Best flapjacks and bacon anywhere around. Get a dessert here for special entertaining occasions and your guests will be wowed.
I love the fact that they have vegan cakes and food.
This is the best place to go to get your sweets and your breakfast and your lunch I give it a five-star nothing less it's a great place people are friendly is fast and the food is great I'm going again
The Oreo Cheesecake = Slice of Heaven!
We enjoy the excellent vegan desserts and friendly staff. When i want to feel indulged this is my go to place.
come hungry, leave stuffed... like that thanksgiving full too. Leave room for deserts they have the best cakes in Decatur by far
My expectations were exceeded in every way. Best quality treats. Excellent, friendly service. Wonderful atmosphere inside. I regret that I have not been into Southern Sweets sooner! My kids and I went in to get treats and play a couple of board games this afternoon. Ordered a couple of slices of Boston cream cake and one of key lime cake. Ganache, custard, and key lime filling could not have been better, and I consider myself very picky about those. I would order both of those again, and highly recommend both! The staff members we saw were kind, helpful, and conversational in a good way. A huge storm hit today as we were about to leave, and one of the staff offered to walk us out to the car with her umbrella (this was about five minutes before the hail hit-- it was getting pretty bad). I could not say where else I've had this sort of help offered. Absolutely exceptional, and I am very grateful for it. Go eat here. :)
So delicious. Sandwiches are so big and so good! Egg salad was great. Nice artwork inside. Cherry pie is fabulous.
Vegan cakes are available here and they are delicious! Plenty of variety of classics for vegans and traditional cake lovers a like. Prompt service, large menu of breakfast and lunch items. Their cake slices are huge and orders to go come with a fork so you have everything you need.
Love their cakes
Southern Sweets makes some of the best cakes I have ever put in my mouth. They interesting, tasty, and massive. They are bit pricey, but you seriously get what you pay for. Also, they are super nice.
Hidden gem. So yum.
Excellent desserts, excellent selection including vegan and gluten-free.
The Red Velvet Cake is just amazing!!!! Best cakes in Atlanta hands down.
The food and the atmosphere of this cute little place is always amazing! Such a friendly and attentive staff. The cakes are to die for, but their savory dishes are just as good. I recommend the shrimp (cakes) and grits.
I ordered the Roast Turkey Club. This is supposed to come with turkey, bacon, tomato, Swiss cheese, and spicy horseradish sauce. First of all, the greens are not greens at all. My opinion of greens is either a spring mix or arugula...NOT one slice of very limp romaine lettuce. The tomato was 2 slices of Roma tomatoes which didn't even cover half of the sandwich. Then the spicy horseradish sauce. Nothing was on the sandwich. Two pieces of dry, old bread. Very disappointed. I used to be a fan. Never again. They need to stick with what they know-cakes, pastries, etc.
Yummy vegan treats
Best in vegan sweets in the city. Hands dwn, no questions, ifs, ands, or buts about it
Great cakes and pies. Breakfast and lunch are both good too.
Bang! First visit and I liked what I saw. I need to go back and try the food. The pastry I got was delicious! Customer service was great and they were very informative. I suspect I will be upgrading my review after my next visit.
Love this little spot all tucked away! Desserts are delicious and lunch is fresh! We like to come here right before braving Dekalb Farmer's Market.
We enjoy there Grill cheese sandwich and cake..
I love coming to this bakery. The desserts are always delicious, and I've never had a bad experience. Even if you don't finish your dessert the day you purchase it, it still tastes good a day or two later. Whenever, I get a sweet tooth, this is usually the first place that comes to mind.
I really enjoyed my visit the food was great and the staff was on point with the service
This place is amazing! The food is awesome and the desserts are even better. They even have vegan desserts and they are so good.
Lovely establishment! The sweets are phenomenal! We always get the vegan red velvet cake
I have tried many things, and the only thing I really like is the vanilla pound cake. The staff is very friendly
Food is great. Small out the way spot. Prices are bit high. But it's ok.
Awesome as always. It's very nice knowing that the delicious baked goods are prepared on site without preservatives and are not sitting in a box on a shelf in a grocery store for who knows how long. Yummy!!!
This my new favourite spot in Avondale. A very low key hip cafe with a great menu. They offer a wide variety of cakes, breakfast items, burgers, and salads. I would recommend their old fashioned chocolate cake. They have pretty good vegan and vegetarian options as well. Customer service is great, it is conveniently located and can be seen from regular traffic. It doesn't have ample of parking but works just fine. I love this place, thumb's up to the management!
Vegan options are delicious. Ive had the vegan red velvet and the vegan cheesecake. Pictured is the summer lemon & blueberry pie
Amazing breakfast burrito the chicken sausage was OUT OF THIS WORLD! Obviously prepared with Love. I didn't have to taste the cakes to know they were something special, just visit this great place and you'll see what I mean! Gotta go back! My new place for a relaxing "cup o Joe on the patio" when in Atlanta. I found a jewel!
My friend brought me here a little over a year ago and they HAD the best grits I've ever put in my mouth. I was so excited to finally bring my husband to try them. I've been raving about them so long. But to my dismay they either changed the recipe or the cook no longer cares. The grits were stale and disgusting! The poor waiter had to come back to the table 3 times because they kept forgetting to put something on the plate like eggs and toast and jam. We were the only people at the counter and the few other patrons that were there already had their food. So it's not like they were busy. We drove 45 minutes to get there. It was definitely not worth the drive! And will not be wasting another Sunday morning to drive all the way out there again. Goodbye magic grits that melted on my tongue I'll miss you!
Love everyone there. I still dream of the cherry pie.
The ceiling fans has so much dust packed on it. I can't imagine how nasty the kitchen could have been.
Shop local, eat all the amazing foods!!!
The vegan chocolate cake is the best chocolate cake I've ever had! It is worth the money!
Lots of sugar, not much flavor Popsicle Cake
Lox and Bagel. Not sure how I feel about the $10 price tag. Pretty good. I wanted something different. They have a lot of vegan sweets. The cashier was nice. They need to turn on the air.
Great Vegan options
Pleasantly surprised going in here after literally years of being coerced by friends. Hidden inside an industrial park there this really awesome bakery... Lots of dietary considerate options all of which are tasty. They accidentally put cheese on olmy wife's black bean burgers and remade it but refunded the cost due to inconvenience. Wasn't necessary but appreciated. Go, enjoy, you're welcome!
Tucked away in a warehouse is a bakery of fine pies especially the wild cherry
Great customer service!!! Breakfast serving portions are good.
The desserts and food are pretty good. Ordered a vegan strawberry cake a couple of weeks ago and it tasted a little old. Mistakenly gave a 3 stars and received a pretty awkward (borderline rude) reply from this business. Will try them again and see if I need to modify this review.
Have been happily buying my cakes from here for years, but last couple of months have been very disappointing. The cakes have been dry. I purchased a vanilla pound cake this week and it was horribly dry. Sad, I was embarrassed because it was for a gathering and I'd bragged so.
There was way too much mayo on my sandwich! Soupy!
Bought piece of cherry pie last Sat. Should have checked my purchase carefully. Why would you sell a piece of pie that looks like you scraped it from the bottom of the pan? I have pic. Will send it if u respond.
This place is the best, always great breakfast, great quality and those grits are the best. I love the variety of cakes, the size of the slice is huge and so is the flavor. This place was one of the main reasons I relocated here late last year.
Loved the customer service but the cakes didn't taste good.
Good sandwiches, great cakes (chocolate peanut butter moose is excellent), nice atmosphere
I love that this bakery sells tasty vegan desserts
I don't eat wheat and they have cake I can eat
I have been going here for years and had to take a break, because EVERYTHING is good. My favorite is the old fashioned chocolate cake. I told my brother about it and he gets the vegan strawberry cake that is also fantastic.
Very good cakes, also lunch specials on sandwiches (lunch orders take a while).
Always love this place, although it's changed from the little place I first started going to in the 90s when you could chat with Nancy (and Nancy actually had time to chat!). But growing bigger and busier hasn't changed the solidly good service and the wonderful food. And even though they have very good breakfast and lunch offerings, the stars of the show are still the sweets by far. The old fashioned chocolate cake and key lime pie are our family's favorites, but the entire selection of cakes and pies (and lemon bars and pecan tarts and cookies and...) are simply wonderful. I miss the smaller, simpler shop of yesteryear, but I keep going back for those wonderful sweets!
delicious vegan caramel cake and strawberry cake!
The best apple pie in the world!
I’m a sugar junky and this is my most favorite bakery in the world. Amaretto cake screams “I am cake!” Pecan pie is usually loaded with fat but theirs is so worth it (in moderation.) Very popular spot and close to the wonderful DeKalb Farmers Mkt. Can buy by the slice (slices are large and more than one serving) or whole cake/pie and prices are reasonable.
The food is good. Standard southern comforts and cafe food and large slices of baked goods. There are also vegan options!
yummy breakfast. Love the croissants and home made jam. The cakes I've tried were pretty good.
If you need gluten-free dessert options this is a good place to get them. Some of the gluten free items are sold by the slices. Others you have to buy the entire thing. All of the other desserts are delicious as well. They have great salads, sandwiches and other food. The prices of the food are sort of high, but the slices of desert have a decent price.
Must try their breakfast... It's to die for. Don't forget to get your sweet tooth fix, you won't regret all the delights.
Their hotdogs were phenomenal. Their baked goods not as much.
Really cool place. The food is amazing.
Great little bakery store and breakfast place. Great food and staff
Delicious coconut layer cake and German chocolate cake. Cake by the spice is about $6 per slice. You can get smaller discounted slices that are prepackaged for $3. There is also a breakfast and lunch menu. The parking lot is small. We ordered a sandwich to go and it took a while to come out.
I can't believe it has taken me this long to review Southern Sweets. I have been going there since a friend introduced it to me in 2008. I have tried many of their desserts, and all have been delicious. Their lunch sandwiches are tasty too. Best bakery in Atlanta, hands down!
The food is filling and satisfying and I love the artsy edginess inside.
I always come here for the yummy Amaretto Cake. Its simply divine!!! It would be nice if there was a " customer appreciation" day every so often as a way of saying thanks for the continued support.
Had a slice of their vegan chocolate mousse cake and it was awesome!! Will definitely go back.
Delicious! I love this little bakery so much. Everything is fresh and so so good. They even sell some sandwiches around lunch time. The best thing is the chocolate cake. Make sure to stop by when you need a sweet fix.
Excellent desserts and incredible customer service. They work hard to make sure you AND your belly are nice and happy. The vegan options are excellent as well.
Fantastic sweet treats plus breakfast & lunch. Over 10 items for those vegan or gluten-free, too.
They have good variety of cakes which I tried a piece (it's a good size piece). It was not bad but didn't find it that special for the price and can not say it's for the quality because I got heartburn 45 min later. Worst part, coffee was warm not hot.
They have zero vegan food. I don't know what happened with the people who say it has vegan food, but on reality it is a little country bumpkin cafe that falsley advertises vegan dishes.
Sandwiches are really good and big
Good options of desserts. They have vegan options also which is a plus. Reasonably priced. The caramel cake is my mom's favorite and the red velvet cake is my dad's favorite. I've had the vegan chocolate ganache cake which is very rich and decadent, I could not finish it in one sitting. They have a lunch menu which seems sweet popular. I would like to try it out one day. I'll update my review then.
Great local place. Haven't had their breakfast or lunch items but their cakes are delicious. I've had a few of their different flavors and haven't been disappointed. The staff is friendly and helpful.
Liked their cake with butter cream icing.
The Strawberry and Creme Cake is delicious!
Delicious food and dessert
Absolutely the best deserts in Atlanta
I love this place. Best kept secret. Food and desserts are to for.
Best vegan chocolate raspberry cake I've had so far. I am visiting family in Decatur from Orlando and I was excited to find this vegan friendly bakery. I will definitely be coming here when I visit my GA family in the future.
Very friendly over the phone and in person. I recently moved to Decatur and was recommended for Southern Sweet Bakery. I bought the Pecan Tart for Thanksgiving which I have been told it is delicious. I’m sure it will be delicious today
One of the few, elusive vegan bakeries in Atlanta! I needed a last minute vegan wedding cake for my friend's last minute courthouse wedding and they came through with no advance notice -- disclaimer, I got a tiny cake for just the bride and groom. Don't try this for a full size cake! They even decorated it for me! It looks like a hidden gem for lunch, too. Very near Dekalb Farmers Market and Avondale Estates. Will have to return for lunch soon. Thanks y'all!
Diverse menu, great selection of cakes
Sweet potato cheesecake
My wife and went there yesterday around 3pm to have cake. Although there ware 3 ladies behind the counter , it took about 15 minutes to order. We ordered 2 small coffees and we were given the cups. The coffee was very cold and I immediately notified one of the lady but she completely forgot making fresh brew. She remembered only as we were leaving. We love their cakes but they have poor customer service.
I made a mistake and confused you with another place, my apologies. You guys are absolutely wonderful, very very good bakery items I have been there at least ten times and will continue to patronize you. again my apologies for the mix up. You guys are excellent........*
Such a lovely place! Their stack of pancakes is HUGE!!!!! I recommend the German chocolate cake too
Find something new to love every time I go here. Delicious with a HUGE selection of sweet and savory.
Yay!!! I was able to purchase special Mickey Mouse birthday candy here.
It was my first time going a few days ago and the cakes are so delicious. The price is right for the slice of cake they give. They do sale food as well, but I didn't try it. Now, I know where to get a good cake for a birthday.
Great place for lunch and to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings.
I had given 5 stars but something has happened. I always got the Vanilla #. Been a while since I had it. It doesnt taste like it's made with butter anymore and lacking salt. It's too sweet and bland now
Best cakes in Atlanta and great food! Friendly staff!
Mad delicious sweets! Dont miss any opportunity to visit this place, eat in and take out!!!
Great place for a slice of Apple Pie and coffee
The gluten free chocolate torte is so good, lkie a vacation on an island where the wind is blowing, the palms are waving in the breeze. The other gluten free cakes are delish, but the torte is next level
YUMMY! This bakery is a hidden gem! We went in a small tasting at SSB for our wedding and the staff was very nice and extremely informative. We reached out to Ashley after just a couple bites of the Almond Butter cake and told her it was the one for our wedding. This bakery truly delivered! We had a beautiful 2 tier cake and a ton of sheet cake that our caterers served. I had so many guests at our 400 guest wedding approach me and compliment the cake. Everyone had either told myself, my husband or our families that the cake was absolutely delicious! The cake was delivered on time and was more than enough in quantity despite our exact order. I was so impressed with this bakery and I am so happy that I am still receiving compliments on our cake. Thank you SSB! You guys were amazing!
There's a wide variety of cakes to choose from! Awesome place
This was a great treat because a small group of us was looking for vegan desserts. We found several and purchased a slice of 4 choices and took them home for a taste testing. Not only was it fun, but we had our eyes opened about how delicious vegan (and some also gluten free) desserts could be. We will be back for more.
The fried egg sandwich is so good!
Ambiance is real chic. Sweets look absolutely delicious. Had a Ruben it was ok. Table area is small and all people sit together which is pretty neat. Wait staff is friendly. Parking is really tight but doable. Resturant is hard to find but Google took me right their. Only one restroom for the resturant. Great place to take a lunch date to.
Great food and desserts.
I had the Cuban this time. It was a great sandwich. The deserts are great too.
Purchased the key lime pie yesterday. I had high hopes as I heard so many good things about this bakery. They key lime pie has been shared among a few people and the review is the same. There is no tangy key lime taste. Its tastes like sweetened lime juice. I would try other pies, but I would not recommend or purchase this one again.
Easy, delicious and off the beaten path. You might only plan on coming for breakfast or a sandwich, but it's hard to leave without dessert. All around great. A must if you're in the area.
Great cakes and sweets. The lunch items are hit or miss. Not that tasty.
Heard so much about this place. So disappointed! Grits were gritty and undercooked as was part of the bacon. The bottom of the croissant was soggy. When I attempted to exchange the grits for potatoes it wasn't happening! The cashier said they were stoneground and that's how they were supposed to taste! What bull! I've had stoneground grits before and they did NOT taste like gravel. My friend had been there previously and was surprised at how terrible the food was! Perhaps the cook had a bad day! $12 & we still left hungry. My friend took her food home to re-cook the grits. I gave 2 stars because the eggs were okay and the top of the croissant was very crisp and delicious with the raspberry jam. Will not go back! WHAT restaurant will not stand behind their food and make an exchange? SMH
Thanks to google contributors we were able to discover this place. Incredible cakes and pie selection. We tried several cakes and pies during our first visit, all were very delicious! Well worth the drive and time!
I went to Southern Sweets to get a last-minute cake for my grandma’s 87th birthday. The service was exceptional, and my whole family agreed it was one of the best cakes we’d ever had! Try the chocolate pound cake, it’s amazing!
Wonderful folks. Amazing vegan choices. I'm certain all the choices are great.
I ordered a vegan strawberry creme cake from here. It was my first time every being in this establishment and the art om the walls were very lovely,the dining atmosphere was very nice as well. The vegan cake options are great as well. The cake that i brought home was amazing! One of the best vegan cakes i ever tasted. I lost my hope in resturants making vegan food, but this place restored it! BEST BIRTHDAY CAKE EVER
I am upset that I haven’t found this hidden gem sooner! I ordered the grilled pimento cheese sandwich and it was absolutely delicious! They have many vegan options and everything was fresh, the staff were friendly. I will be going back! Prices are a bit high, but worth it for quality food.
Southern Sweets Bakery!! I had brunch...the Smoked Salmon Scrambler was delicious. The flap jacks were fluffy and tasted like Grandma made them. The customer service was on point-friendly and authentic. I will visit again and again.
I'm sure at some point in time, Southern Sweets was a conversation piece but I was not impressed. The texture of the desserts especially the cakes was toooooo floury. I had 3 different samples and none of them were good. No infusion of flavors was administered within the cakes and the icings were bland. Very disappointed
Good breakfast, great, big, rich sweets including vegan and gluten free options. Good coffee in a very relaxed old-style coffee shop. They're out of the way and a bit hard to find, but definitely worth tracking down.
Didn't know this was open to public nor that it's vegan!!!.... Great tasteful and fulfilling food, great customer service, nice atmosphere.... The caramel vegan cake was excellent!!!... Definitely will be coming back. Well worth my drive from Gwinnett county.
love this place. I have been going here for years and am still a fan of what they do. This place is a gem in the city which is still inventive in its approach. The breakfast here is specifically delicious.
They do two things very well here: sandwiches and sweets, specifically cakes. They have the best cake in town I'd say. My favorite is the peanut butter chocolate mousse cake. Perfect place to get slices or a half or whole cake - reserve in advance if it's for a party though. They will also decorate of course. Comfortable little loft/commercial feeling eating space if you're eating out. Counter service only. Expect a bit of a wait but not too bad - it's worth it in any case.
Delicious vegan cakes and pies. The key lime pie is my favorite but don’t skip over the chocolate and raspberry moose cake. The apple pie is a classic done right at the bakery tucked away in the industrial district near the famous Dekalb Farmers Market. Stop by after you get you veggies to reward yourself with a sweet treat with a southern flair!
Fresh tuna salad so delicious. Key lume cake and coconut cakes are moist and delicious
Homemade and good.
They had a wide variety of cakes but would not cut them to sell a slice since it was a Saturday afternoon. What a ridiculous policy.
I ordered four slices of cake to try for a birthday coming up. The reviews of the cakes are terribly incorrect. At best, I can give a strong 2 stars. The cake slices I ordered were: amaretto with a white buttercream, red velvet with chocolate buttercream,keylime with white buttercream, and yellow cake with chocolate buttercream. I hate to say, I was very disappointed. The cakes were refrigerated before slicing, which is OK, but they were a little below average at best. I would describe them as lacking, not being moist, more of a powdery consistency to the palette, all the icings were bland, almost tasted store brand like, except for the chocolate icing. The chocolate cake made it to being mediocre, the rest weren't even that. Suffice it to say I won't be going back.
Best deserts intown!! My only complaint is that they put a ridiculous amout of crunchy sugar on all thier pies so i never get them wish they had with and without.
This place has a little of everything
My order of 4 birthday cakes with personalized inscriptions for a big family party and 4 individuals was perfectly executed and ready on time.
I purchased a chicken salad sandwich on croissant, add bacon, and two slices of cake. The sandwich was amazing and the key lime cake was so good I ate the entire slice. I then had to sit silently to question my will power, I mean the lack there of! Lol Waiting on my sister to try the red velvet cake, which looks just as moist and delicious! I'll be back for breakfast on Sunday!
Wonderful wonderful! Breakfast, lunch, and more cakes, pies and cookies than you can shake a stick at! Vegan, gluten free and sugar free items as well. Now, they are SHIPPING their kids goods. So you don't even have to go to Avondale (Decatur).
Delicious lunch and amazing baked goods.
Very good pie.
