Best biscuit in Orlando?

Anyone have any recommendations where my family and I can find the best biscuits in Orlando while we're down there next week? Really looking for some great, local breakfast joints. Thanks!

  1. Depending on where you are, First Watch has great breakfasts with a few Orlando locations (including Winter Park and Altamonte Springs), but if you ask me, the best biscuits are at Cracker Barrel, a chain. In fact, they're probably my favorite breakfast place in general.

    1. No biscuits at this place, but my favorite place to eat breakfast is Bagel King on Semoran Blvd. in Cassellberry. Their bagels are wonderful, and the hashbrowns are awesome.

      If you are down by the parks, I like to have breakfast in Celebration at either the Market St. Diner (I think that's what it's called - it's on the corner by the lake), or at On A Roll, which is more of a sandwich place (again, on Market St.), but their breakfast sandwiches are extremely good. Again, no bisuits that I've had at either place, but their breakfasts are really good.

      1. If you want biscuits you'll have to go to the small local places( although Hardee's does a good job in a pinch.)

        Just north of Apopka on 441 there is the Plymouth Woodshed which does a great traditional southern breakfast ---Biscuits, sausage gravy etc. plus killer blueberry pancakes.

        1. I know it's a chain, but is anybody making biscuits better than Bob Evans?

          I've never had biscuits this good...

          With butter and various jellies and jams from the jelly tree they have on the table---
          it's a scene man!

          Keep your hands and feet away from my mouth!

            You know, I feel the same way, but then I'm from Ohio and so is Bob Evans.

            ...Keep your hands off my biscuit basket and the honey jar and everything will be fine....

            I don't really like the BE's breakfast food except for the biscuits, the oatmeal, and the pancakes. Could I have a side of starch with my starch?

              Ooooo, yeah, Bob Evans biscuits, yum! I like to get a big bowl of sausage gravy and eat the biscuits with the gravy along with fried mush:o)

            2. Honestly? Having been born and bred in the deep south and coming from a long line of southern biscuit makers, you'll be hard pressed to find a better biscuit than Bojangles.


              Go all the way and get the spicey chicken biscuit.

                Oh yeah, Bojangles has awesome biscuits and sweet tea. They closed down in Louisville years ago and I haven't seen one since:o( I also like Popeye's biscuits and we at least have those here in Orlando:o)
