1. Bomb Biscuit ATL’s Biscuits

660 Irwin Street NE Atlanta GA 30312

You’ve gotta love any company whose motto is “Spread love like butter.” YES! They’ve got an assortment of very affordably priced biscuits and biscuit sandwiches. Sink your teeth into their lemon pepper fried chicken biscuit, their sausage gravy biscuit, or even their gluten-free biscuit if you’ve got a gluten intolerance. It’s all bomb!

2. Buttermilk Kitchen’s Fried Chicken Biscuit

 4225 Roswell Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30342

Chef Suzanne’s farm fresh buttermilk biscuit has all the makings of biscuit greatness. The inside is smooth and buttery and totally melts inside your mouth. Get the biscuit basket if you really want a carbfest for breakfast and try all the tasty jams it comes with. Or try the chicken biscuit, served with a sweet tea brined fried chicken, for the perfect start to your day. Open for dine-in and curbside pickup.

3. Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit

 1004 Virginia Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30306

Callie’s has everything you want in a biscuit: flaky and buttery, but with plenty of structural integrity (the words nobody wants to admit they want to hear to describe a biscuit) so they aren’t falling apart under the weight of your toppings. Get yourself a sausage, egg, and pimento cheese biscuit sandwich or be the hero of your office and bring in a baker’s dozen of the namesake hot little biscuits, available in flavors ranging from cheese & chive to black pepper bacon.

4. The Chastain’s Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit

4320 Powers Ferry Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30342

Oh mama. The Chastain is a newer restaurant (at the old Horseradish Grill location, by Chastain Park) that has become a favorite of folks in the neighborhood for drinks, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And something that’s a bit of a sleeper for folks is they are serving up a killer biscuit at breakfast. Grab it and a coffee to go or sit on their patio when the weather’s nice for a crazy good biscuit.

5. Cupanion’s Fried Chicken & Sweet Potato Biscuit

4920 Roswell Rd Ste. 14, Sandy Springs, GA 30342

There’s not a bad thing on hole-in-the-wall spot Cupanion’s menu. The Cowboy benedict, with braised beef and cornbread, is the perfect hangover savory cure. The French Toast casserole is dessert for breakfast. And their fried chicken biscuit comes with a Sweet Potato Biscuit and perfectly creamy pimento grits. Drooling just thinking about it.  Open for dine-in, patio dining, and pick-up.

6. The Flying Biscuit Cafe’s Biscuits With Cranberry Apple Butter

Multiple Locations

We could easily eat about five of the Flying Biscuit Cafe’s sugary, light biscuits. But pair it with that addicting cranberry apple butter, and we could easily eat about ten! The first The Flying Biscuit Cafe first opened up in Atlanta in 1993, and they’ve been a heavyweight in the Atlanta brunch scene ever since. Don’t forget to also get their creamy, dreamy grits! Most locations open for dine-in and pick-up.

7. Gracious Plenty’s Biscuits

1164 Canton Street Roswell, GA

Head to Roswell for a killer biscuit sandwich! Walk in, and you will be smacked with the totally tempting and mouthwatering aroma of freshly made biscuits at this popular brunch spot. The inside is quaint, but there’s a good amount of patio seating. You can also get a pick-up order at their walk-up window during the week then sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. The parking lot is also helpful with how busy Canton Street gets.
