Hidden breakfast gems in the Atlanta area??

I'm looking for that one breakfast spot that you just can't resist ... less greasy spoon, more fresh, creative kitchen. A wait is okay, provided the food is worth it. :)

  1. An Atlanta favorite for breakfast/brunch is Murphy's in the Virginia Highlands. Expect a wait on Sat/Sun, but well worth it. You'll probably make some cool friends while you wait - it draws quite a crowd. Enjoy!

      1. I second Murphy's - it's my favorite spot.
        Also Buckhead Bread Company, Babette's, Sun in my Belly

            Thanks everybody!! You've given me a great list to start with ...

            1. re: dantastic

              Murphy's is really great, but brunch is ALWAYS packed expect a wait. The Silver Skillet on 14th st in midtown is a great little spot.

                Thumb's Up on Edgewood, close in to the city; second pick is The Flying Biscuit on McClendon in the Lake Claire neighborhood. Murphy's, while popular, a distant 3rd to these two in meeting your goal ....

                  No one I know can stand the Flying Biscuit's mediocre food anymore. Thumbs Up is really good, as is Murphy's. Babette's has a great brunch. Silver Skillet was always a little to greasy spoon for me. West Egg is my favorite.

                    Did you all hear that Flying Biscuit is being rolled out all over GA and the country soon?? That doesn't bode well for the fragile remains of FB as it stands now...

            2. I don't know how hidden it is, but Goldberg's is fantastic!!
