The menu is interesting and delicious. I was unsure at first of a sweet potato biscuit, but it was awesome! I really enjoyed the Hella Fitzgerald. The portions are very generous and staff is extremely friendly.

Handsome Biscuit is my husbands favorite breakfast place. We always go when he returns from long trips away. You can’t get a better biscuit in Norfolk.

Upon arriving around 10:30 am Sunday, we were a little discouraged because there were 4 individuals waiting to enter the door!! However, the interior is very small and intimate accommodating 3 or 4 tables with seating for about 10. The wait was about 15/20 minutes...More

Had a sausage and egg biscuit, probably one of the best I’ve had, the counter service was friendly and courteous and the Lupo hot sauce was to die for, bought a bottle to take home. Definitely will be back.

Excellent choice of buscuits that are overloaded with goodies from eggs, to cheese, to hot sauces, though not overly hot. I enjoyed the biscuts I have ordered and the biscuits are good. You can watch them cut the cough and bake the biscuits, they are...More

I don’t know when biscuits started being orange but the one I had was horrible!!! It was too sweet and still partially raw...

A great twist on a classic breakfast biscuit. You definitely will find something that will satisfy your tastebuds. The employees are super nice. Always ask for the drink of the day. “A taste of fall” was amazing

The Sweet Potato biscuits were deliciously warm and covered in an egg that was cooked to perfection, but what really stood out were the hash browns... They were to die for.

Very small place but amazing food. The biscuits are made of sweet potatoes, different but great. And the coffee was excellent, strong but not bitter. We would definitely visit again.
