Buttermilk Kitchen's a down-home comfort food den with lamps made from buckets, salvaged window shutters on the ceiling, an open kitchen with a customer-friendly walkway, and Suzanne Vizethann's Southern comfort dishes. The daytime-only restaurant is known for its excellent breakfast menu, which features dishes like white bread French toast, a three-egg pimento omelet, and stone-ground grits. Once a month, the restaurant opens at night for its Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner, a four-course BYOB dinner centered around, you guessed it, fried chicken.
Who in Atlanta hasn’t driven around an insane amount of time to find parking online to wait an insane amount of time to get their hands on those delicious biscuits? Good news: You can order Suzanne Vizethann’s famous biscuits to-go. If you’re feeling really hungry, may we suggest the chicken biscuit? It’s a buttermilk biscuit topped with fried chicken breast, house-made pepper jelly, and pickles and it’s pretty much the best.
Buttermilk Kitchen celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, and after a strong decade in business, Chef Suzanne Vizethann’s breakfast and brunch restaurant is showing no signs of stopping. The mouthwatering menu is loaded with incredible meals to try, from the chicken & pancake (different, right?!) combo known as Make It Flippin’ Fantastic (fried airline chicken breast on a solo buttermilk pancake, maple syrup, and powdered sugar) to the fresh Folded Egg Fertata (mushroom confit, grana padano, roasted tomatoes, and onion with tossed balsamic greens). Plus, Cardi B recently paid Buttermilk Kitchen a visit, so be like Cardi and check out one of the best breakfast spots in Atlanta.
Owner and Executive Chef Suzanne Vizethann first welcomed guests into Buttermilk back in 2012, and almost a full decade later, the Southern restaurant remains a force to be reckoned with breakfast and brunch menu items that are actually worth the wait. On the off-chance that you can’t choose between building your own custom breakfast platter or weekend brunch specials—we’re talking Strawberry Biscuit French Toast and Avocado Short Rib Benedict—a great entry point at Buttermilk Kitchen is its signature Chicken Biscuit, a sweet tea-brined fried chicken breast served on a buttermilk biscuit with house red pepper jelly.
