ATL breakfast, supper, and dessert - without a car

The hotel is right next the convention center, as I understand. Was hoping to rely on MARTA.

ATL breakfast, supper, and dessert - without a car

My first trip to ATL is coming up at the end of the month, and I'd appreciate some help from those of you in the know. I'll be staying 2 miles from the airport (it's a work trip), won't have a rental car, and will only have a few free hours nightly to eat, explore, etc.. Therefore, I want to maximize my foodie pilgrimage/sightseeing time. Any recommendations about must have food that is also near must see spots?

I've long wanted to visit the Flying Biscuit Cafe, but don't know which location would be closest to my hotel (2 miles from airport). Also, having read prior posts, I'm wondering if the Silver Skillet would be a better breakfast bet, or perhaps some other location? I'm eager to have a true southern experience, and would love the name of a good and accessible place, please. Someone told me about a place called Mary Mac's, but details were sketchy, as was the foodie cred of this source.

Finally, any recommendations for mouthwatering desserts would be great, as my sweet-tooth is insatiable.

Any/all suggestions are welcome. Thank you.
