The Flying Biscuit Café sets a date for its upcoming grand opening in Columbus

An Atlanta-based breakfast and southern food chain, The Flying Biscuit Café, is opening its Columbus location at Highside Market on Dec. 26.

Franchise owners Jason and Ariel Esteves became fans of the restaurant after moving to Atlanta in 2007, he told the Ledger-Enquirer, and even had The Flying Biscuit cater their wedding.

The restaurant will occupy a 3,000 square foot space in Highside Market at 211 13th St.

Highside Market held its grand opening Holiday Bazaar on Dec. 14. Most of the development’s businesses are now open, with others like It’s Tamale Time and Dragonfly Toys and Gifts to open in the coming weeks.

Esteves looks forward to The Flying Biscuit opening just after a major holiday.

“The family-friendly atmosphere and amazing menu will be a late Christmas present that will be enjoyed year-round by people in the city,” he said in the news release.
