A taste of heaven is closer than you think! So close, in fact, it’s as central as Five Points, equally as friendly, and serves up breakfast and lunch all day long. The Flying Biscuit Café, known for its breakfast and brunch all day menu offerings, is a national franchise with a flair for the eclectic and widely recognized for its inviting atmosphere and trendy offerings. Franchisees John Robert Barth and Kevin N. White opened Columbia’s first location on Harden Street a year ago and have quickly become a crowd favorite.

Southern comfort food with a twist is a staple of The Flying Biscuit Café, where favorites such as Pancake Tacos, Hot Dirty Bird, Shrimp and Grits, and “Not Your Mama’s” Pimento Cheese Sandwich accompany a variety of cocktails from mimosas to bloody marys. The café’s ambiance is vibrant and upbeat with bright colors, the franchise’s signature flying angels on the ceiling, and one-of-a-kind artwork on the walls.

Barth and White put their own spin on the franchise by featuring opportunities like free ice cream nights, balloon artistry, and a visit from Santa Claus. According to John Robert, “We are proud to be a part of this community and grateful for the enthusiastic welcome The Flying Biscuit has received over the past year. The partnership we’ve established with the university, along with the catering we do for other organizations, has allowed us to extend our hospitality, and a taste of heaven, past the front doors.”

The Flying Biscuit Café is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. on weekdays, and from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The Flying Biscuit Café boasts plentiful parking in back and expanded sidewalks for outdoor dining in one of Columbia’s most popular shopping and dining destinations.
