Breakfast was good but nothing special. Atmosphere is comfortable and lively. The service was average. I felt that it was expensive for what we got.

The flying biscuit is a must for any visit to Atlanta. Be ready to wait because it’s a hotspot...but it’s worth it! Great southern style breakfast, biscuits and gravy, cheese grits, French toast. Yum!

There was a 20 minute line Friday morning a 10am so they must be doing something right! We ordered pretty standard breakfast fare (grits, eggs etc) and it was worth the wait, everything was very good. Service was not the most attentive, the waitress never...More

We had read great reviews online and this place did not disappoint! The cosy, casual setting at the southwest corner of Piedmont Park is well-situated and the food is great. The menu is extensive - we had trouble deciding what to order. The french toast...More
