Get ‘Better Than Yo Mama’s Biscuits’ at celebrity hairstylist’s new eatery

Gocha’s Breakfast Bar now open on Cascade Road

A stylist who has tended to the tresses of stars including Kandi Burruss, Nicki Minaj, Serena Williams, Beyonce, and Drake is trying her hand at creating magic in the kitchen.

Gocha Hawkins’ Gocha’s Breakfast Bar has been in soft open mode at 3695 Cascade Road SW since just after Christmas. The restaurant will celebrate its grand opening Jan. 10. 

The menu includes a variety of breakfast starters, main dishes and sides including Better Than Yo Mama’s Biscuits, Chicken and Waffle Stack, Gocha’s Krunch-Tastic French Toast and Salmon, Egg and Cheese Croissant. A representative for the restaurant said the “recipes are straight from Gocha's home kitchen.”

The eatery also offers bottomless mimosas from noon-2 p.m. Monday-Tuesday.

Hawkins, who has owned Gocha Salon on Peachtree Street since 2011 and has worked with a long list of celebrities, also worked as a key hairstylist for the Atlanta Hawks dancers as well as other NBA teams.
