Where to Find Biscuits for Breakfast Around Atlanta

From the gravy-laden to those stuffed with pimento cheese, bacon, and eggs, these are the must-have biscuits

View as Map

Biscuits are more than a breakfast or sidekick food in the South, they’re a way of life. The carb-laden Southern staple often times comes with a generations-old recipe passed down through the family. No two biscuits are alike and everyone has their favorite, so it should come as no surprise that Atlanta has plenty of options. Here are a few of metro Atlanta’s most essential biscuits.

Sun In My Belly’s biscuits are infused with lavender which makes them slightly cake-like and a touch floral without being cloyingly sweet. Not into lavender? There’s always the buttermilk biscuit found in their pork belly Benedict.
