I’ve had several requests for a Best Biscuits in Austin roundup given that I’ve had my fair share of biscuits lately. We’ve got some super dang delish options and I’m thrilled to put this together. Additionally, I know there are quite a few spots not listed that I should include and I promise to keep on eating biscuits and add to this list.
As always, please click the map below to view pictures and videos of the restaurants included in this roundup. I love how Vessel Maps looks visually and how user-friendly it is. You can click in each location to go directly to their website and even view their menu or place an order!
Little Ola’s Biscuits (Olamaie)
I’ve had the fried chicken biscuit and the country ham and cheese and both were divine! Oh, and if you don’t want a fancy sandwich, you’ll love their biscuits and honey butter! Be sure to grab a cocktail to-go as well!
Address: 1610 San Antonio St.
Oh my goodness, biscuits and a beautiful venue! Mattie’s is a dream and I wish I were there enjoying a biscuit right now. Their butter usually is a blend of something amazing (like the one in my picture that makes it pink)! Enjoy!
Address: 811 W. Live Oak St.
Foreign and Domestic (FnD)
I literally have walked out of FnD swooning and in a food coma everytime! I can’t tell you what my favorite dish is because every bite is out of this world. Save room for dessert. The Fried Chicken Biscuit is a MUST devour. It’ll leave you speechless. Check out an old blog post about my brunch at FnD for the full scoop!
Address: 306 E. 53rd St.
Revelry Kitchen + Bar
Well, it’s not surprise I’m a huge fan of RKB and I miss riding my bike there for a cocktail and grub. They’re open with plenty of outside seating if that’s your thing! Their biscuits and gravy available at brunch is quite possibly one of the best brunch items I’ve ever eaten. I dream about it on the reg.
Address: 1410 E. 6th St.
Word of Mouth Bakery
Word of Mouth Bakery knows how to do baked goods. From the focaccia bread for the sandwiches, to the cookies, cupcakes, tres leches and THE BISCUITS, you are guaranteed to come out of there with a carb overload but feeling all the feels. Be sure to grab a few biscuits to-go. Trust me!
Address: 917 W. 12th St.

Jacoby’s Restaurant & Mercantile
Jacoby’s has one of my favorite buttermilk biscuits & gravy! It’s fluffy, flaky, and oh so satisfying. Pair it with an order of deviled eggs and mac n cheese and a cocktail! Or don’t, and just eat it by itself. Point is, be sure to get your hands on one asap.
Address: 3235 E. Cesar Chavez St.
Sawyer & Co.
This Southern gem has nailed the biscuit game. Growing up in Louisiana, I developed a palate for biscuits early on and I’m particular. Sawyer & Co.’s biscuit meets my criteria! You can get a benedict on a biscuit, fried chicken, omelet, or just get the biscuits and gravy. The biscuit is the winner there!
Address: 4827 E. Cesar Chavez St.
Stella San Jac
Good news! You can order the #16 biscuits at any time of the day! And you ALWAYS should start your meal at Stella San Jac with biscuits. They’re craveable and satisfying! I love their deviled eggs also and eggs pair nicely with biscuits!
Address: 310 E. 5th St.
Fixe Southern House
Oh my golly, I’ll never forget the first time we went to dinner at Fixe. We ordered EVERYTHING and were so stuffed but it was totally worth it. You can get their biscuits and biscuit sandwiches delivered now too so you really have no excuse to order a dozen!
Address: 500 W. 5th St.
Try Hard Coffee
On select weekends, Try Hard Coffee makes these amazing breakfast biscuit sandwiches that you are lucky to get if you show up in time. I’ve had the great honor of enjoying this creation twice now and I long for the next one. They serve it to you open face, and I’d recommend just using a fork and going for it. Regardless, grab you a Chai Rider (best tea drink ever) and a breakfast biscuit (or a taco if they’re out of biscuits) and do it!!!!!!!!!!!!
Address: 1115 E. 11th St.
Bird Bird Biscuit
Last but not least, the spot for my favorite Fried Chicken Biscuit – BBB! Order the Queen Beak, drive on over and pick it up at their biscuit window, DO NOT WAIT till you get home to devour it. I apologize in advance for any mess it may cause. They’re open late on the weekend so you can get your biscuit fix for dinner too!
Address: 2701 Manor Rd.
As mentioned, I know there are some more good biscuits out there. If you don’t see your favorite listed, throw me a rec down below in the comments. Until we meet for a meal full of biscuits…
