Good Morning Breakfast Bar opens September 19 on Edgewood

Dennis McKinley (the Original Hot Dog Factory) opens his next restaurant called Good Morning Breakfast Bar this Saturday in the former Puff and Petals lounge, the AJC reports. McKinley describes the late-night breakfast restaurant as “basically Waffle House on steroids” because, unlike Waffle House, it serves alcohol. The menu centers around fried biscuits, along with breakfast scrambles. Open 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. daily. It’s unclear if the restaurant requires masks in accordance with the citywide mask mandate or plans to limit seating inside during the pandemic. [AJC]
