Quick Bites: The Flying Biscuit Cafe (Norcross)

After an early workday last weekend, I decided to pay my first visit to The Flying Biscuit Cafe to sample their breakfast fare.  The popular chain has several Atlanta area locations (I visited the one on Peachtree Parkway).  This place stays packed on weekend mornings and last Saturday was no exception.  Since I was dining solo, I was able to be seated immediately at the bar.  One of the reasons I wanted to stop by is their wide selection of vegetarian menu items (I'm going meatless for the time being but still eating eggs and dairy).  I opted for the Hollywood, an egg white omelette with mushrooms, spinach and white cheddar cheese topped with a chunky tomato sauce.

I wish I could rave about it, but unfortunately I found the Hollywood to be a bit bland.  Not that I always expect a great deal of excitement when eating an egg white omelette, but I've had (and made) better.  However, I fell in love with their signature biscuits.  These were among the best I've had anywhere: light, airy and delicious with their cranberry-apple butter.  I also enjoyed their popular fried green tomato appetizer.  I love the combination of the creamy goat cheese and tart green tomatoes.  The sweet cashew-jalapeno relish adds a nice little kick-great stuff.
