Trends come and go, but a really good biscuit stays in your memory forever. Owner Tim Laxton was struck by inspiration one night in 2014, he'd open a shop offering fresh biscuits using his grandmother's recipe! The idea was quickly embraced by Richmond when his shop first opened in Lakeside, a suburb of Richmond VA. Offering classic buttermilk biscuits with house-made jams plus a bakery case of classic pastries and cookies, in addition to lunchtime specialties like chicken salad and pimento cheese, Tim and his crew have been re-defining hospitality and sharing food that has been lost in interpretation.
What's the secret to a good biscuit? A gentle touch and lots of butter. Their larger space in Richmond's Fan District has a warm, nostalgic feel that will encourage customers to sit and savor their purchases. And the Early Bird team has more room to experiment, too with their UNIQUE BISCUIT of the day. Whether you stop into their Fan or relocated spot in Lakeside, you'll be greeted with this same warmth and deliciousness.
