Flying Biscuit Cafés Cleared To Land in Caydon’s Midtown Tower Trifecta, Across from Memorial City Med Center

Here’s another Midtown development development: Georgian breakfast restaurant Flying Biscuit Café is the first tenant to line up for a spot in the tower Caydon Property’s putting up off Main St., between Drew and Tuam streets. The 27-story building — viewed above from the east side of Fannin St. — is just south of the Art Supply on Main store that Caydon just recently snatched up and plans to replace with one in the threesome of towers that’ll eventually stretch up to McGowen.

Flying Biscuit’s other destination as part of its 2-pronged Houston entrance strategy: the west side of the strip on Kingsride Ln. off Gessner where Reginelli’s Pizzeria decamped earlier this month:


(Since its withdraw from that storefront, the pizza chain’s gone out of Texas completely; all its remaining spots are in Baton Rouge or New Orleans.)

Roughly 17 Flying Biscuits are now open across Georgia, North Carolina, Florida, and Texas — serving staples like shrimp and grits, as well as a few proprietary offerings like “Coca-Cola BBQ glazed salmon” (gluten-free) and an egg-French-toast combo dubbed the “Egg-Stravaganza” (contains gluten).

  • That’s too bad about Reginelli’s. I liked it back when I lived in New Orleans but never really understood how it was supposed to differentiate itself in the Houston market. Ditto PJ’s coffee.

  • Why do you guys keep deleting my comments?

  • The Flying Biscuit is an Atlanta institution and Houston will LOVE this place. They have awesome biscuits, outstanding cheese grits, a massive thick oatmeal pancake that I still remember 10 years later, and killer apple butter. Just wish the upcoming location was different.

  • Houstonian’s will NEED to utilize the under construction walking bridge underneath the 59 bridge across Buffalo Bayou !!!
