The Flying Biscuit Cafe
Legend has it that when The Flying Biscuit Cafe first opened, diners were so enamored with the kitchen's soft, flaky biscuits that they polished off the entire stock before 11 a.m., causing the restaurant to close its doors for the day. Today, the cheerful eatery has expanded to 13 locations across Georgia, North Carolina, and Florida, each one serving an average of 5,000 biscuits per week. Cooks are forever busy in the kitchens, slicing up the fluffy biscuits for breakfast sandwiches and folding farm-fresh and organic ingredients into a variety of American comfort classics. They dole out breakfast dishes all day long, from wood-smoked salmon scrambles to the gooey grits lauded by reporters from The Emory Wheel as "the most delicious cheese grits you’ve ever tasted (or ever will taste)". As the day wears on, the cooks turn their attention to juicy Angus beef burgers and Southern-style dinners such as chicken-fried steak and spicy jambalaya pasta. Committed to promoting healthy lifestyles, they also offer a variety of good-for-you menu items and modifications, whipping up omelets with egg whites, baking biscuits with whole wheat, and serving pancakes with a side of cast-iron kettlebells.
