    The Flight of the Biscuit: Atlanta's favorite brunch joint all started with the original Flying Biscuit location in Candler Park. The franchising rights went to Raving Brands in 2007.

    This is the original. All other are imitators. You haven't eaten Flying Biscuit until you visit its mecca. Order a box of biscuits to go.

    Two words: creamy grits. Their grits will make any other bowl of grits elsewhere taste like dog poo to you. In other words, try the grits.

    Possibly one of the finest breakfast meals I have ever had, and that is saying something.

    On the menu alongside standard eggs and gigantic biscuits: organic oatmeal pancakes, homemade granola, turkey bacon, and free-range chicken sausage. Read more

    The first door on the corner is for the bakery. Keep walking two doors down for the dining room. It's the door by the sign hanging out over the sidewalk.

    Love the biscuits and applebutter

    I really didn't like this place. The steak was awful and the biscuits were stale. The only decent part of my meal was the eggs. Also expect to wait in line for a table for at least 15 mins. 3/10

    OMG, everything was delicious. But the weekend Johnnycakes and dreamy grits were worth writing home about. "Dear mom and Dad...."

    Flying stag? Pop into the bakery when the dining room is crowded and settle up to the bar. You'll be taking down a Flying Biscuit Breakfast b4 you can say "Joy, party of 6!"

    If I had to design my dream omelette, it would include goat cheese, mushrooms, and a tomato topping. Thankfully, it exists at the biscuit; it's the Clifton. True Love.

    Stop in the bakery and get to know Melanie and her animal rescue group. Talk about putting your passion to work!

    I went here for dinner this evening...Food was excellent, but...a wino came in and asked my table for money, and the restaurant workers did not ask him to leave. Will complain to management tomorrow.

    So I designed a vegetarian "southern scramble" with tofu, collards and soysage. Tasty.

    Love the southern scramble.

    Excellent food. Meggsican wrap sauce is a bit too hot and not enough tomato. Great cocktails for brunch - all in a pint glass for $4.95. Grits are to die for.

    Igor T. · May 19, 2013
  • Amanda D.

    The grits alone is worth the wait.

    For all the vegetarians/vegans out there: don't order the BBQ Tofu burrito. Personally, I thought it was really gross. Also apparently the veggie burger patty is not vegan (contains cheese).

    Devon · April 8, 2013
  • Kevin H.

    Same as the others: get the creamy grits. Also, the biscuits are not to be underrated, especially with the apple/cranberry(?) butter, and the fried mac and cheese and anything with the tomato aioli.

    Kevin H. · April 7, 2013
  • Dan G.

    Despite their appearance, the lava cakes are delicious. And make sure to get a biscuit, mostly to go wild with the accompanying apple butter.

    Dan G. · March 19, 2013

    Server Jeffery is amazing!!!!

    The original! Anything goes well with one of their famous biscuits with homemade cranberry apple butter
