Excited about Eating by Ernie & Dora Hiers

This edition of Excited about Eating takes us to a “Southern-inspired” comfort food restaurant, The Flying Biscuit Cafe. Located in the Park Road area of Charlotte, this popular meeting spot features breakfast all day plus salads, sandwiches, and plate meals.

After the crowd outside a couple weeks ago, we strategically timed our visit.

Dora here. Unlike last week’s choice, I knew The Flying Biscuit Cafe would be a great experience. A couple weeks ago, we stopped here, but the crowd outside and the corresponding long wait deterred us. This week we strategically timed our visit, hoping to fall sometime after the breakfast crowd and before lunch. And, also unlike last week, our server seemed to really love her job. She was knowledgeable, helpful with suggestions, and stopped by our table several times to check on us and refill our drinks, always with a smile even though they were obviously super busy. Don’t let the skinny exterior deceive you. This cafe goes a long ways back with another outdoor patio in the rear.

Bustling on a Saturday around 11 AM. This cafe is bigger than it looks from the outside.

For a starter, we ordered a side of Grilled Macaroni and Cheese that Yelpers rave about. This mac and cheese is nothing like I have ever tasted. Rectangle blocks of mac and cheese grilled to perfection, somewhat crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Dora here. This alone was worth the drive. Fluffy, light, you don’t really even taste the pasta. The texture comes off more like a souffle. HEAVENLY!

This alone was worth the drive. A side of Grilled Mac & Cheese. Heavenly!

For my lunch (breakfast), I chose the Egg-Stravaganza. Two poached eggs, chicken sausage, turkey bacon, grits and whole wheat French toast topped with raspberry sauce and a honey cream. This dish was outstanding, eggs cooked to the exact time and consistency, grits were creamy and cheesy.

Egg-Stravaganza, outstanding!

The French toast wasn’t overly egg-y or thick, almost tasted like pumpernickel bread, so I was surprised to find out it was actually wheat bread. Whatever the type, the sauce and cream were a great accompaniment.

French Toast, not overly egg-y or thick. And the sauce and cream a great accompaniment.

Dora here. Y’all, check out the Very Berry Chicken Wrap. Doesn’t it look refreshing? It was!! Great texture from the candied walnuts, fresh flavors, light on the raspberry vinaigrette, loaded with chunky chicken, delish! The perfect choice for a hot summer afternoon, I would definitely order this again. Maybe not the Garlic and Basil Mashed Potatoes because I prefer my taters a bit creamier.

Very Berry Chicken Wrap…light, fresh, delish! Side of Garlic Basil Mashed Potatoes.

What about you? How do you prefer your French Toast? Or not a fan at all?

We rate this restaurant 5 forks out of 5 for a family friendly restaurant serving outstanding food.

  1. Oh my, the Grilled Macaroni and Cheese looks wonderful! It’s definitely one of the great comfort foods, isn’t it?
    I’m not really a fan of bread, so I don’t care much for French Toast. Some people put syrup on it and since I’ve never liked pancake syrup. I used to put peanut butter on my pancakes when I was a kid. I drove my mother crazy with my pickiness! 🙂
    Have a great weekend! xoxo

  2. The Mac and Cheese looks amazing. And the French Toast? Yes! I love French Toast. Like you, I don’t like when it tastes egg-y. I like adding allspice to the egg mixture. And topping it with homemade maple syrup. Yummy.
    I remember putting PB on my pancakes and waffles because I didn’t like the sweet syrup. Today, I put sour cream on pancakes and waffles to cut the sweet taste. You need to try it. Everything looks tempting. Going to find me a snack. Happy weekend, Tori! ❤

  3. Wow! The mac and cheese looks delicious! In fact, it all looks good.
    I’ve never been a fan of French toast but that looks appetizing.
    I’m thinking I might try to recreate that wrap (except without the nuts, my Dr says I can’t eat them anymore 😦 )
