My question is WHY?. I'm not so sure what the allure is. Their breakfast offerings are just okay, nothing special. Go to J Christopher's for a better breakfast. This place is more of a scene than a breakfast joint.

Well, this is an interesting one. Drew & I have both been to Flying Biscuit, but not together. His visit left a bad taste in his mouth: hard brick-like biscuits & watery omelettes compounded with the parking hassle, crowds and poor service left him with no desire to return for seconds. On the flip side, I actually quite enjoyed Flying Biscuit. I ordered the Southern Scramble with the collards cooked into the eggs and thought it was delicious. Although I did have to run out to refill the parking meter due to exceptionally slow service, but overall I was pleased. Yes, it's crowded, but it's Midtown on a Sunday morning. Maybe we'll have to go back, together this time, and see whose first impression proves to be an accurate representation of Flying Biscuit's overall delivery...

I absolutely love the Flying Biscuit. The atmosphere is fun, quirky, and friendly (with the exception of grumpy customers waiting for a table during the busy mornings on the weekend times). The daily scramble special is usually my choice along with either a peach oatmeal pancake or a piece of french toast with raspberry puree.

I went for the first time to try the biscuits. Got bacon egg and cheese. They put sugar on top of the biscuit. Disgusting. The bread was too heavy. I preffer a light fluffy biscuit.

If you can imagine this, Flying Biscuit combines the feeling of a southern country kitchen, European cafe, and hippie-granola diner. Excellent food, great service, and good people-watching, in the heart of funky urban Atlanta.
It took many years of driving past this restuarant on the weekend, looking at the long lines to figure out that "there's a reason why". NOW I KNOW, the "Southern Scramble" can't be beat! And the biscuit - literally flys off your plate, its sooo good.
Fantastic Food for a reasonable price in a funky spot. I love the LOVE Cakes - I will drive miles - but this week I branched out and had the salmon with the coca cola glaze -it was delicious. My husband always goes for the Turkey meatloaf - Verry yummy. Breakfast on the weekend always is a wait - so I get my Biscuits with dinner and save them for the next morning. 10 seconds in the microwave and they are FanTasTic! Yumm!

I can't count the number of times I've been to this place, and I haven't been disappointed yet. Amazing food (try the Love Cakes and grits!) with Southern charm and delicious flavors!

The Flying Biscuit has long lines to get in. Either everyone has been brainwashed by all the hype, or have no idea where get a really good breakfast in the ATL. Biscuits here are so heavy, I seriously doubt they could fly.
