A restaurant I frequent serves amazing cheesecake and I asked who made it....Southern Sweets! I ended up getting one for a friends birthday and it was a hit! Eager to try the others as well. Amazingly nice staff as well!

The desserts are to die for! They make dessert for many upscale Atlanta restaurants. They have great breakfasts and sandwiches, too. I usually get Birthday cakes here.

My kids, aged 20 and 17, went with me to pick up 3 large cakes for a 90th birthday celebration. We ended up staying for brunch and it was delicious!

Southern Sweets is tucked away and off the beaten path. You need to know how to get there or GPS it...and you want to. Trust me- it's worth finding. The desserts are, in a word, amazing. A wide variety of cakes, tarts, pies, cheesecakes and...More

This bakery supplies cakes to upscale Atlanta restaurants, but they also offer a really good lunch of mostly sandwiches. Seating is limited but comfortable. Limited parking in a private lot.

Thanks for the great review.. We are always happy to make our customers happy. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make that 4 a 5 rating.. Figure it may be the seating but didn't want to assume.. Thanks..
