This past weekend, I dragged my friend Tiff out of the house at an unreasonably early hour (noon) for brunch at Buttermilk Kitchen in Buckhead Atlanta. Our day-date arrangements usually go something like this:

ME: Hey love, you working this weekend?
TIFF: Not on Saturday, what's up?
ME: Brunch?
TIFF: When and where?

And that was that...

We got there around 1:30pm, which ended up working out perfectly. This place gets packed on the weekends, and according to a few yelp reviews, the wait times can range anywhere between 60-90 minutes. By 1:30pm the rush was starting to fade and we only had to wait for about 30 minutes before we were seated.


As far as atmosphere goes, it's a small and quaint restaurant, with a bar at the front and limited table seating. The parking is also limited. We parked at the shopping center across the street and walked on over. We were greeted by our server almost immediately after sitting down, and he was about as pleasant as they come (it didn't feel forced at all).


Glass milk jars are kept on the table for instant water refills, which you pour into you own little mason jar. The restaurant definitely sticks to their namesake's theme, and honestly, it was really cute.
Don't be surprised if old school milk jars filled with filtered water end up in my refrigerator.

The food was well worth the drive to Buckhead (only about 20 minutes from home), the walk over from the parking lot across the street, AND the 30 minute wait. These pictures don't do it justice, and I almost decided to skip this post because I didn't take any pictures that look as good as the food actually tasted (I was too busy running my mouth).

Tiff ordered the "Two Eggs Your Way" with a side of chicken sausage, and I got the "Chicken Biscuit" with eggs in place of cheese grits. We both could both really taste the buttermilk flavor in our meals, and their house jam and preserves complimented the biscuits perfectly. I know eggs over medium isn't the most photogenic dish, but it's what's on the inside that counts, and I love my egg yolk runny.

It's worth noting that the Chicken Biscuit is their signature, and they only make a limited amount each day. I was taking a gamble by arriving a couple hours before closing on a Saturday, but thankfully they had a few left. I mean... look at this. LOOK AT IT.



Buttermilk Kitchen has officially made it's way to the top of my brunch list.
