We got to Handsome Biscuit and we’re immediately greeted by a friendly face, huge smile and a pleasant “Good morning, welcome to Handsome Biscuit”. We ordered the Hella Fitzgerald and the Hash Brown Krisp... Sooo good! The sweet potato biscuit was exclusive, full of taste,...More

My husband always looks for unique places to eat when we travel, he hit the nail on the head this time! I had the Dill Na-Na , the frittata was fluffy, the biscuit was moist and tasty and the dill mayo satisfied my dill craving....More
