This casual, comfortable restaurant serves up some seriously fluffy biscuits. The fried chicken biscuit is always a popular hit, especially with a touch of maple syrup. Whatever you order, it’s sure to be a hit.

4. Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit

What started out as a tiny hole-in-the-wall on Upper King has now become a regional chain with several locations in Charleston and one in Atlanta. A counter-service joint, you can build your own biscuit with a few different toppings to choose from or select something from the menu. We love the spicy pimento cheese biscuit.

5. Sunflower Cafe

Family-owned and operated since 2005, this down-home eatery is pretty old school when it comes to southern dishes. You’ll find wonderfully light buttermilk biscuits, but order them with gravy for a real treat.

Millers All Day knows how to pack a flavorful punch, and their biscuits are just about as perfect as biscuits can be. Get the crispy pork belly biscuit with blueberry jam for one amazing breakfast sandwich.

This laid-back restaurant is known for its lively and friendly atmosphere. The southern fare is great, and the biscuits are even better. Order it alongside eggs and grits.
