Lawrenceville bakery to add second location next month

The competition was close to decide the best biscuits in Atlanta. Atlanta's Home Grown, winner of the best brunch dish, tied for third place with Mamie's Kitchen Biscuits, in DeKalb. Finishing second was Flying Biscuit, with multiple locations. And the 2019 winner of the best biscuit was Biscuits & More, in Cobb County.

A beloved bakery in Lawrenceville is slated to open its second location in September. In an Instagram post this week, Blue Rooster Bake Shop posted the storefront of its new location in Monroe.

“Monroe is coming right along! Painted storefront, sign, awning but still so much more to do in this beautiful old building,” the post reads. “Fingers cross for September opening.”
