There are some mornings when you just push the idea of calorie counting out the window, and indulge in the super savory, southern breakfast favorite of biscuits and gravy.
For me, the perfect plate of biscuits and gravy has three main elements: Fluffy-on-the-inside and crispy-on-the-outside biscuits, slightly spicy sausage gravy (though I can be convinced to go for mushroom as well), and a hearty helping to stick at the bottom of your belly. Here are five of the best spots to find biscuits and gravy in Seattle.
Don’t let the name fool you, this biscuit place is welcoming, laid back, cozy and unbelievably delicious. If you’re looking for a classic plate of biscuits and gravy, go for the Straight-Up. It’s just a perfectly cooked biscuit and sausage gravy- though, in classic Seattle fashion, you can also substitute the sausage gravy for gluten-free Shiitake mushroom gravy. If you want to be a little more adventurous, try the Hot Mess: Biscuits and gravy, eggs and garlic grits, smothered in cheese, a grilled Louisiana Hot Link and jalapenos. Whew!
(And don’t worry, if you have a gluten allergy, they sell delicious gluten-free biscuits for 50 cents extra!)
What’s better than biscuits and gravy? Biscuits and gravy and a beer! This decadently delicious food truck parks outside both of the Chuck’s Hop Shop locations in Seattle. Order the Big Al for the classic biscuits and sausage gravy combo. Of course, you can’t talk about Seattle Biscuit Company without mentioning their craziest dish: The Bishop Jim Earl Swilley. For 35 bucks you can feed an army with biscuits, four eggs, bacon, ham, cheese, pickles, sausage gravy, and cheese grits. It comes with this warning: “A potentially religious experience.”
That’s right, you can get some of Seattle’s best biscuits on-the-go at food trucks! The Foraged Mushroom and Black Pepper Gravy Biscuit at Biscuit Box is absolutely divine. This tiny truck pops up at different locations all around the Seattle area, and you can check out their social media posts to find out where they’ll be next. If you feel like skipping the gravy, I recommend the Bao Biscuit, made with chinese barbecue pork belly, pickled cucumber, and green onion.
This Columbia City favorite almost always has a wait on the weekend, but it’s definitely worth it for a scrumptious plate of homemade biscuits topped with a meaty pork sausage gravy. It’s then served with two eggs and hash browns, just to ensure you head home for a post-brunch coma-nap.
I feel confident saying the biscuits at Morsel are legendary. And while I know this article is about biscuits and gravy, and the biscuits and gravy are AMAZING at Morsel, I also have to give a shout-out to their biscuit breakfast sandwiches as well. The Spanish Fly comes with prosciutto, a fried egg, Manchego cheese, arugula, and a fantastic pepper aioli. It will absolutely blow your mind.
