There was a line out the door. Waited an hour in line to order. Once we ordered food came out 5 mins later. So delicious.

Get the Hella Fitzgerald...seriously good biscuit sandwich! The biscuits are perfect for sandwiches. The biscuits are ok on their own.

We stopped by for an afternoon snack and were surprised by the selection of sandwhiches. Multiple sandwhiches sounded interesting and it took a while to settle on what to order. We were not disappointed, both were very tasty. It's a very small place with limited indoor seating. There is an area for outdoor seating with picnic tables. They have a... More

Food is great! But having most everything on their sweet potato biscuit (which is awesome!) is limiting for the menu. Despite this, there is a lot to choose from, and it's all good! Very little inside seating; lots of business is to-go.

Our food here was amazing and definitely worth 5 stars. Super small place with a line to the door at 10:00 on a cold Friday. My husband and I split the Shorty, Hot Betty, and Pb&jb. All were great. Bring listerine after eating the hot Betty though (holy garlic). My only point of feedback and something that bothered me was... More

Comfort food...yes! I had a biscuit with fried chicken and gravy on it, while out Christmas shopping. Took all of my stress away! This is a very small place, but with a quick turnover of customers, so I was able to get a table. This place is incredible!

A must. This is one of those places you just hear about, then you see what all the talk is about. Sweet potato biscuits are just the start and add ons from fried eggs, bacon to caviar. Don't be put off by the location. Do expect to stand in line, likely outside but while the space is small, the food... More

If you live in the 7 cities or just visiting Norfolk you have to check out the Handsome Biscuit. The sweet potato biscuits are delicious and a break from the norm. The Hella Fitzgerald came recommended as the in-town favorite and now I know why. Bursting with flavor, I enjoyed every bite. It's one of those dishes to where you... More

My husband liked it. It was ok, interesting options but not a big breakfast place. Seating is very limited. Definitely a place that offers a new edge style biscuit sandwich.
