Buckhead's early birds, late risers, nighthawks, and substantial dracula population can all enjoy the most important meal of the day, no matter what time their day actually starts, with today's deal. For $10, you get $25 worth of healthy, hearty all-day breakfast at The Flying Biscuit Cafe, good for either Buckhead location: Peachtree Road or Northside Parkway. The Groupon is good for lunch and dinner too, but the franchise gets the best press for its all-day breakfast, perfect for professional video gamers, bachelorette-party survivors, or pretty much anyone who gets up around 2 p.m.
The non-stop breakfast menu includes such good-for-you goodies as the High Flyer (two large farm-fresh eggs served with chicken breakfast sausage and an organic oatmeal pancake topped with warm peach compote, $10.49) and the eggs-stravaganza (eggs, sausage, crisp turkey bacon, and whole-wheat french toast topped with raspberry sauce and honey crème anglaise, $9.99). Carnivores can gnaw on hormone-free, grass-fed steak and eggs ($11.99), while vegans can substitute the sausage in their flying biscuit breakfast with Morningstar Farms soysage ($8.99). People who prefer to only eat celebrities might prefer the Hollywood omelette instead ($9.99).
All breakfast items come with a choice of oven-roasted "moon-dusted" potatoes, creamy dreamy grits, or a side salad. They also come with one of the 5,000 famous flying biscuits that the café bakes fresh each week. If one of those enormous, fluffy, sugar-sprinkled biscuits doesn't immediately grant you the power to levitate, then you clearly didn't smother it with enough of the café's famous cranberry apple butter; try again with an even dozen ($12.99). Or better yet, buy the flying biscuit cookbook ($12.95) and spawn a race of atomic superfoods, which will conquer the world from the comfort of your own kitchen.
- Great food. Sometimes the wait is long, but it is worth it. – J Dwyer, Urbanspoon
- I started going to the original FB over 15 years ago and still think it's one of the best options around town for a great breakfast. – Barney, Urbanspoon
- I am a huge breakfast lover and I love the omlettes at The Flying Biscuit! The wheat biscuits are better than the white ones! But....my favorite thing is the grits! White cheddar and whipping cream----you can't beat it! – lisa3686, Citysearch
The Real Most Important Meal of the Day
The Flying Biscuit is known for its breakfast, but we also adore lunch, which left us feeling torn about which meal to spend our Groupon on. That’s why we flew in the debate team captains of two rival high schools to make the case for each side in this delicious dilemma.
Jennie Crumtag, Junior, St. Bartholomew Prep, defends breakfast: Breakfast has long been accepted as the most important meal of the day, not just by contemporary dietary psychologists, but also by the generations who preceded us. The same generations who defended the world from fascism in the secret 12-year war against the moon. Each time you skip breakfast, you harm your body, dishonor your forefathers, and begin the day as sluggish and hollow as a Macy’s balloon dragged behind a truck. Wipe the sleep from your eyes and the crumbs from your eyes, all with the same napkin.
Avery Barnakowski, Senior, Oakfield High, defends lunch: The all-powerful breakfast lobby has spent hundreds of years and literally thrillions of dollars hoodwinking Americans into believing that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This fallacy holds very little scientific veracity under even casual scrutiny: it is too early in the day to be hungry, very little has happened. There is no need to take a “break” from anything. Would one put an intermission at the beginning of a play? The notion is preposterous and hurtful.
Tragically, following the debate, a rogue ice-cream truck crushed both students. Goodnight, sweet forensic fledglings, we dine in your honor.
