Everyone knows that the most important meal of the day is breakfast. And in the south, that breakfast likely comes with a flaky, golden biscuit. Well, some of the best biscuits can be found around Gwinnett County. If that craving strikes, here are a few restaurants you should check out. Each of these restaurants also serve many other delicious breakfast options to compliment your biscuits. Who doesn't love a warm bowl of grits to go with their biscuits?
