Visited for lunch. Freezing inside. "Love Cakes" - black beans w/cornmeal, topped w/tomatillo salsa, sour creme, and feta cheese - sounded delicious but were way too spicy for my tastes. Side salad was good size but mainly comprised of just spring greens. The silver lining:...More

Varied and interesting menu with delicious little twists to almost every dish. Good service, though frequently busy. The restaurant is very echoing.

The smoked salmon Benedict was on special and cost $12. I was looking forward to a couple of large pieces of smoked salmon served on an English muffin with poached eggs. Instead I got a small pile of sad slightly pink, slightly gray meat. Then...More

Visiting G'ville after living there years ago. Flying Biscuit is as good as it always was. Love the creative menu - if you don't leave full you aren't trying. Staff is friendly and helpful. We always sit at the cozy, small counter

These biscuits are so light and airy I am surprised they don't float off the plate. We went for breakfast one morning and were surprised by the number of options besides biscuits. Service was good, food was really good. Good place for a large breakfast.
