The Flying Biscuit Café is headed to ‘ham! The Atlanta based breakfast and southern food chain will open in the Shops at the Colonnade on Hwy. 280 this summer. Here’s what you need to know about Birmingham’s newest breakfast joint.
1. The Flying Biscuit Café will Land on Hwy. 280
The chain is currently renovating the 3, 906 sq. ft. space formerly occupied by Local Taco in the Shops at the Colonnade. Greg Yund, franchise partner for The Flying Biscuit Café, is opening up the restaurant with his dad and felt like Birmingham was a great place to do just that.
“My dad and I have always wanted to own a restaurant together,” he said in a press release.
They’ll open the doors to the Flying Biscuit Café sometime this summer.
2. The Flying Biscuit Café is perfect for brunch
The Flying Biscuit Café was rated of the nation’s top brunch spots in America in 2018 by OpenTable. So, be sure to add them to your brunch to-try list this summer!
The menu at Flying Biscuit Caféwill have an option for everyone, including tons of gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options. Also on the menu are a large selection of biscuits, scrambles, benedicts, omelets, pancakes, sandwiches and salads.
Some of menu highlights include:
- Shrimp and grits
- Biscuits and gravy
- Pimento cheese
- Chicken and waffles
- Something called Love Cakes, which their menu explains as three black bean and cornmeal cakes, topped with tomatillo salsa, sour cream, feta cheese and red onion spears
Here’s the menu if you’d like to take a peek yourself.
3. Their Biscuits are, apparently, the JAM
The first Flying Biscuit opened up in Atlanta in 1993. By 11 AM, they had completely sold out of biscuits. Now, 20 years later, they bake almost 5,000 biscuits per week at each location. Sounds like they’re definitely worth a try.
4. The Flying Biscuit serves up their mornin’ goodness all day long
They’ll offer all-day breakfast, lunch and dinner with live entertainment on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Yund said in a press release.
5. The Flying Biscuit Café’s Apple Butter is Worth It
The Flying Biscuit Café cranberry apple butter is apparently to die for. They sell it in their online shop and say it goes perfectly with their biscuits.
