We know, we know…it’s a pretty popular time to swear off the carbs and ramp up the workouts, but those resolutions can really cramp one’s style! We decided to throw caution to the wind and partake in a bit of southern home cookin’ (and breakfast cocktailin’) at Biscuit Head in Greenville for this month’s TALKGreenville magazine drinkin’ on the job outing. Whether you are in the mood for a good old cup of joe on a weekday or a toddy to kick off a lazy Saturday morning, Biscuit Head has just the perfect liquid complement to star of the show…those cathead-sized biscuits.
Biscuits here, biscuits there…
This classically-southern-with-an-edge operation originated with Carolyn and Jason Roy in West Asheville and quickly became a local favorite. Enough so that a second location followed, and this past July, it came to our neck of the woods…and its popularity has not subsided! Although you might experience a bit of a wait now & then, it’s worth it. We kid you not!

The Irish Coffee
Both of us being part Irish, we wholeheartedly support the tradition of spiking our coffee, and these biscuit people know their way around this warm, liquored-up blanket-in-a-mug. Strong, local coffee, Jameson’s, whipped cream and a hint of cinnamon are just the ticket to round out a hearty breakfast .
The Salty Kitty

Fresh grapefruit juice (we all need our vitamin c right about now), Cat Head vodka and a rim of salt make for a sassy wake up call. This delightfully invigorating libation will have you ready to brave the harsh winter weather. Here, kitty, kitty!
Spreading the local love…
Biscuit Head strives to keep it local. Big believers in building strong communities where they operate, they also “get” the importance of keeping their carbon footprint as light as air…like those biscuits. From meats and milk to coffee beans and beer, they bring in the very best available from as close as possible…all for our carb-loading enjoyment
Sip and Savor…
The array of biscuit toppings and fillings range from classic (like red eye gravy) to decadent (fried chicken, sweet potato butter, sriracha slaw with a poached egg). But have no fear, our health-conscious friends. There are “lighter fare” options like granola, fruits and salads to keep those resolutions in check (if you must). As for us, this place is splurge-worthy. We went for it (why do when you can overdo?). After all, if we decide to go into hibernation this winter, we might need those extra carbs!
