If you have yet to try the recently opened chain Maple Street Biscuit Company, you are definitely missing out. Maple Street breaks all of the barriers of traditional southern comfort breakfast food with its revolutionary biscuit combinations.

Whether you’re the typical southern citizen who enjoys biscuits and gravy or someone who prefers chicken biscuits, Maple Street is sure to have something on their menu for you, and at a pretty decent price, too.

From the second you enter the door until the moment you leave, you are treated like family. They do things a little different at Maple Street, like asking you for your favorite band instead of your name to call out when your food is ready.

When you step up to the counter to order, the workers are ready and enthusiastic about helping you find the perfect biscuit for your taste buds. Personally, I’m a big fan of goat cheese and strong flavors, so I was recommended to try “The Squawking Goat,” which features a flaky biscuit, all-natural fried chicken breast, fried goat cheese medallion and house-made pepper jelly, and let me tell you all (or should I say y’all), it was absolutely delicious.

The Maple Street Biscuit Company highlights 10 unique biscuit combinations including “The Squawking Goat” but also others like “The Five,” which has a flaky biscuit, all-natural fried chicken breast, pecan wood-smoked bacon, cheddar cheese and sausage gravy “with a little kick,” and “The Farmer” with a flaky biscuit, all-natural fried chicken, pecan wood-smoked bacon and cheddar cheese topped with fresh house-made apple butter. There are even quite a few vegetarian biscuit combos if that is more to your taste.

Though 10 biscuit combinations might be enough for some, Maple Street takes it the extra step with three additional versions of “biscuits and gravy,” two different glass jar salads and four unique “entrees with a twist.” If you’re more of a waffle person in the mornings, I recommend their house-made vanilla bean waffle with asiago and pecan wood-smoked bacon baked inside.

Even their sides are exquisite! I really liked the “hash brown cake,” which might sound a little weird but was actually delicious. It is baked hash brown potatoes stuffed with smoked gouda cheese and topped with chives.

You might be thinking, All of this sounds great, but I’m never up early enough to go get myself a delicious breakfast at Maple Street. Lucky for you they’ve got you covered! Maple Street is open Monday-Thursday from 7 a.m.—2 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 7 a.m.—3 p.m. and is only 20 minutes from Milligan’s campus.

So, the next time you’re craving something a little extra special for your breakfast, brunch or lunch, head on over to Maple Street Biscuit Company and give them a try. You won’t regret it.
