When you think of comfort food, biscuits are certainly one of the first things that come to mind. And what's not to love about them? You can eat them at any meal. They go with sweet (jams and jellies) or savory (cheese, eggs, meats) and are perfectly fine as the main attraction or a side. Here's your guide to the best biscuits in Atlanta.

  1. Buttermilk Kitchen – Although already popular, this Sandy Springs/Buckhead spot became even more popular when Food Network showcased it. You can’t go wrong with the chicken biscuit, brined in sweet tea and served with a red pepper jelly. You’ll get it with a side of pimento cheese and pickles. It doesn’t get much more Southern than that.

  2. Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit – Hailing from Charleston, the popular breakfast and biscuit spot has made it's way to Atlanta in the Virginia-Highland neighborhood. Though small and somewhat pricey, Callie's tiny biscuits pack a punch. You can order them plain, but they are so much better filled with jam, pimento cheese or ham.

  3. Flying Biscuit – With locations all around Atlanta, you’re sure to have a Flying Biscuit near you. Though the large menu is full of phenomenal choices, make sure that you get at least one biscuit, even if you share it.  Slather on a house-made jam, and it’s the perfect start or finish to your meal.

  4. Homegrown – This restaurant is an Atlanta mainstay and is known for its biscuits. Known simply as the “Comfy Southern Biscuit,” this one is topped with fried chicken, which is slathered with sausage gravy.

  5. Sun in My Belly – The kitschy atmosphere of the restaurant that resides in a former hardware store is perfect for lounging and enjoying a well-made coffee drink. Slather jam on one of the huge and tasty biscuits, and you'll find it's the perfect pairing to Sun In My Belly coffee.
