Where to find a country ham biscuit in DC?

I'm not looking for anything fancy, just a country ham biscuit at a breakfast place. Florida ave. grill and Bojangles seems to be about my best options but neither are really what I'm looking for (or places my wife will go with me). Any thoughts?

    This isn't a breakfast place, but you can get some country ham biscuits at the Old Town farmers market:

    The country ham is one of Va's best, if not the best.

            bonuses: the old town market is all year round, and it happens to be one of the best and largest in the area.

            The Bethesda Women's Coop has very good biscuits and ham at Stonymans Farm. Along with the best grass fed beef, bacon, eggs, milk and a broad selection of Virginia cheeses. You will pay top dollar but I haven't found anything better in the metro area.
