Saturday Brunch in Atlanta at Buttermilk Kitchen

My morning started not with a cup of coffee but by putting my name on the virtual waiting list for a table. People will wait hours to eat at Buttermilk Kitchen (including me). Of course, it was Saturday brunch in Atlanta, so if you’re planning on doing the same, heed my advice when I say you need to join the waitlist. I was given a wait time of two hours, and it turned out to be extremely accurate; I received a text that my family’s table was ready 10 minutes after I arrived.

Fan favorite

Looking at the menu, one item immediately stood out: the gluten-free banana bread (in the header photo). My mum is gluten free so we were thrilled to find some bread she could eat. It came foaming with an espresso ganache and toasted hazelnuts on top. The most unique component was the sea salt sprinkled on the bread. The combination of the fluffy banana bread with the sweet ganache and crunchy nuts was pretty amazing, but the added salty taste was a perfect new element. This was by far my family’s favorite meal item and you HAVE to order it!

Southern charm

We ordered the cornbread muffins which came with creamy, salty butter and spun honey. It was a nice aesthetic assortment. The muffins were crispy on the outside while warm and fluffy on the inside – and the corn flavor is evident. These muffins were the perfect reminder that we are really in the South!

After another order of banana bread, my brother, dad and I shared The Standard with scrambled eggs, hash browns, maple cured bacon and a buttermilk cookie. The hash browns and biscuit were what made this dish special. The donuts were crispy on the outside and super soft on the inside. They were also very tall – the kitchen definitely doesn’t spare you, which is a trait I love. The cookie was also huge, almost cake-like. It melted in my mouth and every bite made me happier to have access to it, being in Atlanta.

My mom ordered the Grit Bowl, which came with stone grits, garlic spinach, roasted tomatoes, and two poached eggs (but you can get them as you like). She’s always loved oatmeal, and it was telling that she wiped her bowl clean. She wished she had added some chilli cheese to get more flavor, so keep that in mind if you are thinking of ordering it.

My brother, dad and I also shared the chicken + waffle. I think it was one of the best chickens I have ever had. The chicken breast was all my favorite things: juicy with a crispy yet light fry, perfectly cooked and spiced and super flavorful. Whether it’s in this dish, on a pancake, or in the chicken biscuit, it’s a piece you have to try and is sure to leave you with the same reaction as my family. The waffles were also fluffy and delicious, pairing really well with the chicken, with the maple syrup adding the perfect sweetness.

Do I recommend?

After leaving the restaurant with our stomachs filled to the brim, we all agreed that the two hour wait was 100% worth it. We started the rest of our Saturday with a fabulous meal in our stomachs and the determination to find the recipe for gluten-free banana bread. We are definitely planning to return to Buttermilk Kitchen, and I recommend you go there too!
