When in town I always must enjoy breakfast here. Waiting in line is part of the fun - anticipating the great grits and chicken sausage. I do not eat biscuits often so these were a treat, covering them in the apple butter is a must! The decor is fun and you want to take the time to savor your meal.

We actually walked away a little disappointed. Line was out the door Sunday morning. We decided to eat here Monday dinner. No need. Only 1 other table when we went in, and only a few others the entire time we were there. Service was sooo aloof. Maybe a language issue? We (3) all ordered different items, no one finished. The...

Yum! Delicious! I can't say anything bad about the food. Very small restaurant and we had difficulty parking. Those minor irritants were erased as soon as I tasted that biscuit.

We all had breakfast . The creamy grits were so good. I am not a big fan of grits but these were so good I ate mine and my daughters. The turkey Hash and the big omelette were great. I wanted to go back before we left but to many places to try. The line is long to get in... More

We visited on a Saturday morning around 10am and there was a short wait. The place is small and they use every inch of the building to get customers in! The menu was not what I expected as all the items were served with options other than pork. I love pork bacon but I'm open to trying new things so... More

Left the Botanical Gardens and was starving so Googled "really good breakfast or lunch food within walking distance" The Flying Biscuit Cafe was the clear choice. Did not disappoint. Homey, quaint, great eclectic food choices for the picky or the foodie. And on top of that....a great bargain! Service friendly and quick.

One of my regular stops when I'm in Atlanta. As they say, the grits are creamy and dreamy - or something like that. They're excellent as is everything else I've tried.

Fun, bright, crowded and true southern breakfasts...go off-peak and get breakfast all day. Jalapeno Grits best I've eaten and not too spicy. Biscuits, well they might as well fly they are so light and airy! Good service, corrected quickly if any issue

Go early on weekends or you will have a long wait, but it's worth it!! Fast, friendly service. Good, healthy items available. Great coffee. Biscuits crispy outside and fluffy inside...yum...and the spread (apple/cranberry butter?) is delish. Good, casual breakfast before a long walk in piedmont park.

When my friend and I arrived to flying biscuit there was a wait which is a good sign but we only waited for about 30 minutes. The server was very friendly and tended to our needs. I had the french toast and my friend had the famous flying biscuit breakfast. We both enjoyed our meals. It was a great experience!!... More
