I have been visiting Our Way Cafe for over 10 years, even at its first location in Decatur. The quality of the food goes in waves, I assume as the cooks and staff shift. Sometimes it reminds me of my grandmother's kitchen, and sometimes it reminds me of my elementary school cafeteria. On good days, the creamed corn, mac-n-cheese and coconut cream pie are the best bets. On bad days, well, good luck.

This is where you go if you love to watch guy fieri's drive ins,diners and dives from food network. They make eveything here with love and it shows. I am such a foodie, without great food, there's nothing to live for.

They have traditional southern food and they are highly affordable.

Pros: everything is so yummy!

Cons: the decor is like raiding grannys house

Our Wafe Cafe- is just wonderful! Don't let the decor fool you- this place has amazing southern comfort food. By pass the treny spots and bring your out of town family here for a great meal. The main dishes change each day- but are all wonderful. The sides are just like you remember from your grandmother's Sunday dinners- rich and yummy to the last bite!

Our Way is great when you are craving traditional home cooking, but sometimes items are a little unpredictable in quality and seasoning. Some are bland and need more salt and pepper (like the mashed potatoes) other items (like the green bean casserole) sometimes have way too much salt. There are better places for Southern cooking in Atlanta, but Our Way is probably the best option in the Decatur area.

I have eaten 3 times at Our Way Cafe, which serves great southern food. There is no lack of butter or grease, so don't go if you are on a diet. The desserts should not be passed up.

I also used their services for my wedding. I had an asian flair for my reception and the food was amazing!! They were able to stick to my budget, including the wedding cake. Jodi is amazing! He listened and we had several meetings/ tastings. He is able to create anything you want, not just southern food. He also dressed the tables specifically to my wedding-- went out and bought fabric to match my colors/similar to what my bridesmaids were wearing.

Trust me and use them!!

I absolutely love Our Way Cafe. I grew up in Decatur and my group of friends would walk there from the other side of Decatur just to get a veggie plate... I went to college down the street from Our Way, so I ate there in college too. I live downtown now, but I still drive to Decatur sometimes to get a take-out plate. I'm not big on meatloaf or pork roast. I honestly think they overcook their entrees a bit. But it's completely worth a visit to them just for sumptuous macaroni and cheese, creamy whipped potatoes and mushroom gravy, succulent sweet potato casserole, juicy greens, and a biscuit. Granted, that's like one million calories, but for three sides or a meat and two it's less than ten bucks... with a drink! Now THAT'S soul food.

Side note: It's not a formal restaurant at all. No table service.

I wish my waistline could afford to eat here every day - reminds me of visits to grandma's on the farm. Outstanding comfort food - haven't had a thing that I haven't liked. LOVE the chicken enchilada's and the creamed corn is addictive. For those that don't know, Our Way Cafe also does catering - we used them for a party and they prepared and served the most creative, tasty Asian Fusion menu. Thank you Our Way for making this world a happier place.

I don't know what every one sees in this place. The FOOD WAS AWFUL! I had baked chicken mac and cheese and green been cas. The chicken was okay, the mac and cheese bland, and the been green cas. had a bad after taste too it. I love southern food, but this was just a very bad version. I would never go back to this place.

I used to love Our Way...yes, the food is still great comfort food. But, when my mom was in Emory Hospital, we went to Cox Hall to eat. There's a place in the back left side that serves the SAME food as Our Way, only much cheaper! The best collards, green beans, corn bread...you name it! Try Cox Hall! Our Way's prices have gone up, but at Cox Hall, you can get it for well under $5 for a 4 veggie plate and drink, you get ALOT and it's great!

This place was a staple in the diet of Agnes Scott students when it was still across the street, and after it moved, we all still followed. The meatloaf with tomato chutney, creamed corn, and sweet potatoes are not to be missed. A surprising treat is the chicken enchilada. Best value on home cooking in all of Atlanta.

Our Way Cafe is one of those little gems in your neighborhood where you go for a delicious filling meal that reminds you of childhood. Their macaroni and cheese is some of the best I've ever had. I also highly recommend the chicken enchiladas, if you're there on the right day. (really, I'm not kidding!) With their rotating menu of regular choices and specials there seems to be an unending variety of entrees and sides. And don't forget the homemade banana pudding!

This place is great!! Everything is always fresh and tasty. The chicken pot pie is amazing, the salmon loaf, it makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Try the broccoli casserole and the real mashed potatos for sides (though there are lots more great ones). I hope the Our Way is there forever!!!

Editorial from

Our Way cafe's Southern fare includes house specials such as meatloaf and baked chicken (served daily), Salisbury steak and chicken enchiladas (Wednesday), salmon loaf (Friday and Monday), and fried chicken (Friday). We like the chili dog…
