Best Brunches in Peachtree Corners

Published

Flying Biscuit, FL Sunshine Waffle, Breakfast. Photos by Isadora Pennington.

Eggs, waffles, toast. Pancakes, biscuits, and hash browns. Mimosas and Bloody Marys. Yep, we’re talking about brunch. Brunch is one of the most beloved meals to share with friends, and that’s not just because it’s acceptable to daydrink; these feel-good comfort foods are warm, rich and packed full of flavor. As we prepare to see more in person dining, I anticipate a return to this popular weekend outing. So recently I set out to try some of Peachtree Corners’ tastiest dishes at a few of the most popular brunch spots in town.

Flying Biscuit

Flying Biscuit, FL Sunshine Waffle, Breakfast.

A local classic. Flying Biscuit is known for, you guessed it, their signature “fluffy flying biscuits.” The first Flying Biscuit location opened its doors in Candler Park in 1993 and sold out of biscuits by 11am the first morning, so the founders knew they were onto something from day one. In the years since, they have expanded to 25 locations throughout Georgia, North Carolina, Florida and Texas.

When I stopped by the restaurant, I sampled their FL Sunshine Waffle Breakfast. This delectable offering features two eggs served with chicken sage sausage patties, “creamy dreamy” grits, plus a house-made Belgian waffle topped with berries, banana, powdered sugar and whipped cream. And, of course, a fluffy flying biscuit. $12.99

First Watch

First Watch, Farmhouse Skillet Hash.

Touting fresh ingredients and made-to-order dishes, the First Watch philosophy can be summed up as “friendly, fast and accommodating service.” On arrival, diners are greeted with a pot of their Project Sunrise Coffee, and free WiFi and complimentary newspapers add to the appeal for breakfast lovers.

At First Watch I ordered the Farmhouse Skillet Hash. This dish starts with a bed of fresh, seasoned breakfast potatoes cooked in a skillet loaded with bacon, avocado, house-roasted onions and tomatoes, cheddar and Monterey jack cheese, and two cage-free eggs. On the side are all-natural house preserves, fresh fruit, and whole grain artisan toast smeared with rich and creamy butter. If it needs an extra boost of flavor (hint: it doesn’t), try adding ketchup or hot sauce on top. $11.99

Pub Ten

Pub Ten, Huevos Rancheros Nachos featuring Wonton nachos.

Looking for a more casual, laid-back vibe? While this bar is more known for its craft beers and elevated pub food, their growing brunch menu does not disappoint. Kick back and enjoy bottomless mimosas without the hectic atmosphere of most local brunch spots. Owner Marc Cloutier, who bought the business just before the pandemic shut things down last year, can often be found personally tending to his customers.

Here I decided to go for a slightly untraditional brunch dish — Huevos Rancheros Nachos featuring Wonton nachos. Topped with heaps of savory ground beef, red bean pico, salsa verde, cotija cheese, queso, cilantro and two scrambled eggs, this dish is sure to cure any hangover. $10.50

Eating Americana

Eating Americana, Bread Pudding

In the Peachtree Parkway Shopping Plaza sits a comfortable and no-frills restaurant by the name of Eating Americana. This casual eatery just celebrated their first anniversary, and what a trial by fire it must have been to open a restaurant during a global pandemic. And yet, the folks at Eating Americana have survived and thrived, offering comfort foods and traditional American cuisine first only available for take-out or delivery, until recently when they opened their dining room.

While Eating Americana is open only on Sundays for brunch, one of their most delectable dishes, Bread Pudding, is available daily. Composed of a variety of breads offering a complex combination of flavors and tastes, this dish features bright flavors of cranberries, raisins and pineapple folded into the layers of bread pudding. Hints of cinnamon and nutmeg add dimension to the overall flavor of this flavorful and decadent dish. $6.00 ■
