Beloved food truck, Seattle Biscuit Company recently opened their first brick-and-mortar location in Frelard across from kid-friendly Frelard Pizza Company and Tarsan. Their fluffy biscuits (and new mouthwatering grits) now have a permanent location so Seattle biscuit lovers no longer need to chase the food truck around to various Chuck’s Hop Shop locations.
The former home of The Way Station was gutted and rebuilt to showcase a hip, modern and rustic feeling restaurant with ample seating for biscuit loving folks. The outdoor patio provides extra seating on warmer days (or anytime for heartier Seattle biscuit lovers) with a simple Southern design. Inside features a long bar with a wide selection of whiskey, tallboys, draught beer and classic Southern soft drinks such as Cheerwine and Abita root beer.
Food truck favorites such as the Che (a biscuit sandwich with eggs, bacon, ham, pickles, sweet onion mustard, apple butter and Beecher’s cheese) feature prominently on the menu along with some new additions. Owners Sam Thompson and David Hanson hail from Mississippi and Georgia which influences the menu but most of their ingredients are sourced from local Northwest producers. Thompson, a former professional endurance runner, likes food so local he can jog to them. Seattle Biscuit Company’s source stories feature Thompson running to local food sources. The restaurant's flavors are reminiscent of their southern roots with flavor combinations like jalapeño blackberry jelly and bacon but also showcase west coast inspirations like apple butter, Beechers cheese and sweet onion mustard.
The new location features four grits-and-biscuit dishes along with a kids menu, desserts (make sure to try the bourbon biscuit bread pudding!) along with house cocktails such as Bisco Milk Punch made with cereal milk. Chicken and waffle lovers will be in a treat! The Son of Slam features Mad Hatcher fried chicken with a thyme flavored waffle and a side of bourbon/maple/cask syrup. Do not pass up this dish! True Southern food lovers will be delighted to find fried okra on the menu.
