    Known for her famous pop-up Sunday Supper Club, ERIKA COUNCIL’s biscuit recipe (and perhaps her graceful charm) comes by way of her grandmothers. Lately, she has been popping up at B’s Cracklin’ BBQ, mixing and folding flour, butter, shortening (or B’s famous lard) and buttermilk into layers by hand. The softest, fluffiest biscuits and her iced Cinn-rolls draw long queues and early sellouts. Council’s grace extends to her pretty blog, Southern Souffle, where she shares her recipes and stories of the South. We crown her our Biscuit Queen. www.southernsouffle.com. less...

    PASTRIES A GO-GO has located to sunnier digs across the street from its original location on Ponce, and now the weekend breakfast line ripples even farther out the door. Famished? Here’s a tip: Fight your way to the counter and order a biscuit with sausage, egg and cheese to go. In less than five minutes you’ll have a fluffy, flaxen beauty in your hands that is layered with just the right amount of wake-you-up ingredients.

    Slathered with sausage gravy, stuffed with ham and cheese or used as an implement for scooping molten grits out of a cup, the gigantic biscuits at PASTRIES A GO-GO are as fluffy and dreamy as the Atlanta summer is long. With just butter and jam, they're almost a full meal, but sidled up to sunny-side up eggs and thick ribbons of crisp bacon, Bob Light's biscuits are well deserving of their Decatur cult following. Arrive early on weekends or tearily watch everyone else tear into their breakfast while you go without. "250 W. Ponce de Leon Ave., Decatur. 404-373-3423." less...

    Where else but THE FLYING BISCUIT can you enjoy a cloudy white or whole-wheat biscuit morning, noon or night? This restaurant, an Atlanta institution if ever there was one, hangs its name on their biscuits. They are fat, tall, soft and fluffy with a slight tinge of sweetness that lingers on your tongue. Eat them plain, glob on some of the Biscuit's cranberry-apple butter, or try one stuffed with eggs and cheese. If you want to skip the long weekend lines, get a sausage biscuit to go.

    We've tried the rest, but we always come back to wait in the long lines for the best at the THE FLYING BISCUIT CAFE. The fluffy, high-rising biscuits at this Atlanta breakfast institution send you heavenward when lavishly spread with butter and housemade cranberry apple butter. The whole-wheat version (available only at the original McLendon location) have a rich, nutty taste that lolls you into a smug, if false, sense of virtue.

    No Southern breakfast is complete without biscuits, but the Flying Biscuit has made the biscuit — cakey, oversized and with a touch of buttermilk — the cornerstone of all its meals, even its lunch-menu items and dinner entrees. Next door to the restaurant, there's a small to-go shop that's always crowded where you can get your biscuits, sold by the dozen, to go with your morning coffee. Don't forget the apple butter — somewhere between apple jam and applesauce. P.S. the Flying Biscuit gets the other necessary breakfast elements — cheese grits, bacon and eggs — right also. less...

    Mammy's Kitchen has been serving biscuits and gravy for 25 years. Nearly all the customers here are regulars, and the only available seating is at the counter facing the griddle. The menu on the wall lists breakfast — two eggs, grits, biscuits and coffee — as the foundation from which you begin, adding gravy, cheese or hotcakes as you please. You may also order biscuits a la carte, with salmon patties, country sausage patties, bacon or country ham. Mammy's biscuits are flaky and light with a touch of buttermilk. less...
