Atlanta's Original Brunch Spot
The Flying Biscuit was a Candler Park cafe opened by waitress and chef Delia Champion with Indigo Girls member Emily Saliers in 1993. Since opening it has expanded the original location, franchised all around town, and makes at least 5,000 of their famous biscuits per day per location. As you can tell from the name, the biscuits are the main attraction. They're sweeter than your standard biscuit and come with cranberry apple butter. Try an omelet with a side of their "creamy dreamy" grits or the Eggstra-Ordinary Breakfast, pictured above.

The food at the Flying Biscuit Cafe is very flavorful. The food will stick to your ribs and you will be full for the rest of the day. Portions are generous. It is great to eat grits in the South because they tend to be very creamy. You don't have to get grits with your order but it is worth eating the grits because it is hard to find creamy grits elsewhere in the US so it worth ordering the grits here. Great service and a nice place to eat. It is a great place to have breakfast!
