Homey Atlanta restaurant The Flying Biscuit Cafe, which has been slaying all of Richardson and North Dallas with its crumbly sugar-sprinkled biscuits, will soon slay downtown Dallas as well.

The chain is opening a location inside the Central Business District, in the 1700 Pacific building, in the space that was previously occupied by Camille's Sidewalk Cafe. According to a spokesperson, the restaurant will open in late fall, pending a remodel.

Famous for its biscuits and grits, Flying Biscuit debuted in Atlanta in 1993, and now has locations throughout Georgia, North Carolina, Florida, and Texas. Yet, it has maintained its quintessential neighborhood spirit, with a focus on Southern-inspired comfort food.

It serves breakfast all day, with options that go beyond bacon and eggs. There are biscuits with eggs and gravy, penne pasta with chicken sausage, grits, wrap sandwiches, and even a vegan barbecue burrito.

There is turkey hash, flatiron steak with eggs, oatmeal pancakes, omelets, a biscuit Benedict, and a tofu scramble.

There's also shrimp and grits, biscuit pot pie, turkey pot roast, meatloaf with garlic mashed potatoes, and oven-fried chicken. Sandwiches include pimiento cheese, fish tacos, and a fried-green tomato BLT.

Drinks include coffee, chai latte, and a "sledgehammer" combining four shots of espresso with half-and-half.

The Richardson location opened in December 2017 in a new-build center at 746 South Central Expy. at Spring Valley Road.
