The Flying Biscuit is one of those tiny little brunch cafes that seem to be dotted throughout the city of Atlanta. I lived there six years before I saw it on the Food Network. I realized I lived less than two miles away from The Flying Biscuit and had never even heard anyone ever mention it. I started asking around and I realized this is because no one wants the already long wait for brunch to get any longer. I have to say if you don’t want to wait in a forty-five minute line to get a table for brunch on Saturday or Sunday you should get there early. If you get stuck waiting in line for brunch, don’t worry; it will only make their great food taste even better. The Flying Biscuit is one of those great Atlanta brunch places that cater to everyone’s tastes. Dishes range from vegan, vegetarian, and even some that include turkey. Sorry, but you won’t find any beef here. My favorite brunch dish is the meggxican wraps. Scrambles eggs are served spicy with cheese, serrano peppers, and onion. A flour tortilla holds it all together. This just reinforces my theory that Mexican food is good any time of day and especially at brunch! The Flying Biscuit is known throughout Atlanta for their wonderful fluffy biscuits and their fried green tomatoes. A tip to all of you Northerners: don’t order the fried green tomatoes for breakfast unless you want to look like a tourist! But, I have to say, if you are only in town for a limited time and are only going to make it to The Flying Biscuit once, go ahead and get the fried green tomatoes and just suffer the stares. Secretly everyone else will be wishing they had the nerve to order them so early as well. The Flying Biscuit is located at 1655 McLendon Avenue, Atlanta, Goergia 30307. This is an old neighborhood in Atlanta and you will have to park on the street, so drop someone off to stand in line for brunch while you park the car!
