ADios Café

Tools

The cafe's name does not mean goodbye, but "of the gods" -- a tribute to the Mayans, who discovered chocolate in 600 A.D. and believed it was a gift from the gods. They offer such goodies as handmade chocolate trufas (truffles), immensely fruity little strawberry pound cake loaves that are flavored with Jarritos (a Mexican soft drink), and more. But the cafe struggles from some rumbles of faux authenticity. It offers churros served in both the traditional and cajeta-filled versions, but stores them in refrigerated case, which ruins the integrity of their crunchy fried crust no matter how much they are reheated. Fortunately, the cafe will fry them to order if asked.

Tools

Located in one of Grant Park's few commercial strips, this affordable restaurant offers a tasty, simple brunch menu. Also: sidewalk dining.
Flying Biscuit Cafe - Midtown

Tools

Flying Biscuit is one of the great mysteries of Atlanta: How does a mediocre restaurant chain maintain a rabid following? There are better biscuits in town, but that doesn't stop devotees of the Flying Biscuit from lining up for a table at this brunch destination. Still, the pancakes aren't bad and the people watching is unparalleled.
Home Grown

Tools

Home grown is a picturesque illustration of its straightforward aspirations and its eclectic Reynoldstown neighborhood. Most of what is served is grown by local farmers; therefore, the menu is short and changes daily, depending on what’s available. Simple Southern classics, however, such as a fried pork chop with gravy, are almost always available. For sides, be sure to order the creamed corn, fried green tomatoes, or other fresh local vegetables. Breakfast items include flaky biscuits with the standard egg/meat/cheese combinations and other soul-lifting eats. All the lunch entrees are available as the "blue collar lunch plate," which includes a side and a drink. Home grown is an evolution, for locavorism, for Reynoldstown and for Atlanta.
Pastries A Go-Go

Tools

$ (Under $10) This Decatur eatery serves a variety of stellar dishes, but its biscuits earn it the awards. The "cathead" biscuits are packed with fluffy layers and are slightly sweet from the sweet creamery butter and a pinch of sugar. If you're short on time, you can grab a biscuit filled with bacon and eggs for a portable meal that might make you think twice before hitting that drive-thru.
Thumbs Up Diner - East Point

Tools

The second location for Thumbs Up Diner still has the exposed-brick-and-retro-stool, down-to-earth decor of the original. Expect to wait on weekends.
