Breakfast – Cool location....Indoor-outdoor atmosphere. Variety of people and kind of eclectic. Large menu with a great variety of food to chose from
Don't understand why so many people love this place!!! – I went for brunch with two friends. We waited 45 minutes for a table. Once we were sitted, we waited another 15 minutes for drink service. My friends ordered tea and I ordered a glass of wine. Our not so chipper waitress finally brought them their tea and did not bring my glass of wine. She said sorry I forgot, I will be right back with that . She then asked me what I ordered again. After waiting another 10 minutes with no drink or service, we decided to leave. Don't waste your time. I really do not understand what the fuss is all about... It's so over rated.
Check out this breakfast spot. – The best Spinach Omellete in town!! Cozy and quaint, friendly staff but this restaurant is extremely tiny with very little room/privacy between diners.
Atlanta Supreme – I recently visited Atlanta for a short business trip and after finding this place made sure to visit for a meal each of the remaining days. This place is great. I was really impressed by the quality and value of the menu at Flying Biscuit. They seem to want to capture some of the flair of southern or comfort food but if you are wary of these terms then fear not because the menu is more on the organic/veg side than the greasy spoon alternative.
The menu is large and varied and they offer breakfast all day which, as it happened, was the best breakfast I've ever had at a restaurant. The vegetable scrambled eggs were excellent and the organic oatmeal pancakes topped with peaches was stupendous. When I went there for lunch I ordered the Devil Burger which was not so impressive as the breakfast, yet still a great burger, but the side salad was surprisingly delicious. Most meals also come with their namesake flying biscuit which is crunchy, moist, and fresh all at the same time and great with a thin smattering of butter.
The coffee did the trick (complete with sugar cubes, a cute touch) and the service was prompt and personable especially, as it turns out, when the place was completely slammed in the morning (make reservations maybe if you want to sit down at a prime time).
All in all the Flying Biscuit was the one of the best parts of Atlanta and I will definitely visit there again if ever I return.
THIS IS A DAMN GOOD PLACE TO EAT!!$#@!%$#@ – Bump the reviews that say this place is not all that! WHATEVER! This spot is one of the best earthy places to eat in the ATL. The food is great and the service is very attentive. The reason it takes a while to get in is because THE SPOT IS ALL THAT! DAH! People do not wait in Atlanta unless the place is great! Not good, because there are too many alternatives in this city! YAH! This spot has a great artsy atomosphere surrounded by good fresh food. DID I MENTION THE FOOD IS OFF THE HOOK? Very warm feel to the place. Best of all IT IS SOMETHING DIFFERENT from the atl norm. Atlanta is full of ecentric spots with great food! The Flying Biscuit just happens to be one of the best of those spots.
FLYING BISCUIT.....U ROCK.....BUMP THE HATERS!
What happened? – This restaurant used to be very good. Over the past years, however, the restaurant let its quality slip, relying primarily on location to sustain itself. Every meal recently eaten there (and that is many) has been not-quite-hot-enough and somewhat uninspiring. There was a time when the food was not only innovative but also incredibly well-prepared. The only think I can say is, "what happened?"
what is the fuss about – Tried it, not sure why there is such a long line..Nothing special. I make a better omelet. so, the biscuits are good, but nothing to wait for. the other food is actually below par. Heavy, fatty food that is not as good as waffle house and way more expensive than waffle house. not my cup of tea.The place is packed and that is such a mystery. Grits were not even good, and that is my comfort cheating food when I will allow myself extra calories, but again, they were not special. Sorry, nothing good to say, so will sign off.
still looking for a great brunch spot.
not worth the wait! – No breakfast is worth 1.5 hour wait! Food was ok, service ok, we'll never go again!!! Cracker Barrel has better breakfast.
Unique options- vegetarian (even vegan!) and meat-eater friendly – Good food and very friendly service. Its a little crowded and the music could use to be turned down but the warm and friendly atmosphere is great. Their menu has a good variety of choices- I'm a quasi-vegan who doesn't eat gluten and I was still able to find some good dinner options while my vegetarian and meat-eater companions were also able to have great dinners. Organic and free-range ingredients are a nice touch. I highly recommend.
I Don't Understand the Hype – We tried Flying Biscuit for breakfast on a Saturday and were sadly disappointed. My scrambled eggs were overcooked, the biscuits were dry, coffee was just so-so, and parking was a nightmare. On the good side, the scrambled egg wrap was delicious and service was quick and friendly. However, when compared to West Egg (with fabulous coffee, unique breakfasts, and plentiful parking), we don't plan to return to Flying Biscuit anytime soon.
