This Asheville classic has dished out enormous cathead biscuits (named for literally being the size of a cat’s head) for nearly a decade and has two other locations in town. For a classic Southern joint that mainly serves biscuits, gravy, and breakfast sides like grits and fried green tomatoes, the many vegan and gluten-free options also hold their own. There are five different gravies—which you can and should order as a flight—including fried chicken and sweet potato coconut, plus a seasonally-inspired jam and butter bar that may be the most thrilling part of the meal.
The lines can be out of control, but this is truly the fluffiest biscuit we’ve encountered, which is impressive considering the only thing Southerners take more seriously than biscuits is butter itself.
