“Incredible biscuits, amazing ingredients”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Biscuit head is stellar. The biscuits are slightly sweet--not too much, just a little taste--which I think sets off the fantastic ingredients on each biscuit. Country ham is my favorite--it's very salty and the red-eye gravy is amazing. I've also had the pulled pork, which is great as well.

You do typically have to wait in line for a while at Biscuit Head, but once you get to the butter and jam bar, it all seems worth it. I come here with my brother whenever I'm in town and when I'm not in Asheville, I daydream about it.

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

The country ham biscuit was delicious ! The biscuit was huge and fluffy and the ham just right. My daughter enjoyed the half breakfast. Portions are large. Arrive early as it is popular.

“Loved preserve bar”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Great place for weekend lunch. Although the line appears long, it moves fast. Everyone in our group loved the wide selection of homemade preserves and jellies. The restaurant provided water to those standing in line, a nice touch. Would definitely go back!

“Wonderful breakfast”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Biscuits the size of cat heads, great gravies. Wonderful eggs, coffee but the biscuits steal the show. Budweiser cheddar gravy wow! Quinoa porridge tastes like Irish porridge. Great outside deck and dog friendly. Busy so get there early. Great breakfast stop. Closed Mondays.

“Fluffy clouds for breakfast”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Hip,funky,fun and incredibly delicious huge,fluffy home made biscuits with a bar of yummy home made jams.our only criticism is that we wish they would please find a way to make a vegan biscuit selection so that our daughter and her partner can do more than gaze longingly at ours..they do have some yummy vegan selections but not vegan biscuits.
