Chicken Fried Steak.jpgA few months ago, it might be more than a few now… we discovered a new café had opened right next door to our gym. We have some favorite breakfast places here in Phoenix but none close to us and on a lazy Saturday it would be nice to just be able to drive or walk around the corner and get a yummy breakfast.

When we saw Biscuits Café had opened, we decided it was worth giving it a try. Plus if it was good we could always stop in there after a weekend workout to undo any good we may have just accomplished.

We stopped in one Saturday and were surprised at how busy it was, we even had a short wait. Once seated, we studied the menu that was really quite big. It was a big menu considering that it is only opened for breakfast and lunch.

Considering that the place is called Biscuits you would imagine that at least one of us would have chosen biscuits for The meat platter.jpgbreakfasts but we didn’t! Of course not!

A quick aside, we still haven’t tried the biscuits at Biscuits but when my parents visited a few months ago they went here and were given a complimentary biscuit to try since being Australian they had never tried an American style biscuit before… They said it was delicious!

Back to the story…

J. ordered THE MEAT LOVERS PLATTER… of course he did! With that on the menu there was no chance of him ordering anything else. For $10.99 he got a platter loaded with ham steak, bacon and sausage links. He could then choose 2 eggs anyway, hash browns or red potatoes and biscuits, toast or pancakes. He went with fried eggs, hash browns and pancakes. What a mountain of food!

I went with CHICKEN FRIED STEAK… it seems so unnatural but I love this stuff. It was smothered in sausage gravy which was just unbelievable. This really isn’t something you find in Australia, the sausage gravy and we used to have crumbed steak growing up which is as close to chicken fried steak we can get there.

I also had the same choices as J. and went with with fried eggs, hash browns and toast. The toast came with some delicious jam which I could have eaten by the spoonful. All of this for only $10.99.

We were really impressed with Biscuits. So much so that we have returned a number of times, taken friends, and recommended it to my parents. The food was incredibly tasty, the service was great – we had continuous refills, of my coffee and J’s ice tea, even though they were really busy. I think the food felt like it was made in someone’s home kitchen rather than a restaurant. Just good, delicious and unpretentious food.

We found out a little after our first visit there that it is actually a franchise with one other in Phoenix and then a few scattered around the US. If the others are anywhere near as good as this one, it is worth a visit!
