Nashville Biscuit House (East Nashville)
I’ve been driving by Nashville Biscuit House several times a week for the past six months or so, but never really gave it much thought until recently, when I read some Yelp reviews. Many times, I wasn’t even sure that it was still open. Turns out it is very much open, popular, and fills a prefect niche in East Nashville.
East Nashville has several breakfast/brunch spots, most notably Marche, an always popular and delicious French cafe. If you’re not in the mood to wait up to an hour or more, Mad Donna’s and Sky Blue Cafe also offer delicious breakfast food with the now expected East Nashville hipster vibe.
Nashville Biscuit House however offers something different. Traditional southern breakfast foods, cheap and (kinda) quick. The Biscuit House is ALMOST like a more upscale Waffle House, and I don’t mean that in a bad way. Hash browns, perfectly cooked fried eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits & gravy, pancakes- Nashville Biscuit House has it all.
The restaurant was packed on a Sunday morning, but the wait for a table was short, just a few minutes. The coffee was good, the service quick, and the menu expansive. There were families having a pre-Titans game breakfast, hipsters nursing hangovers, friends getting together for brunch, and regulars giving hugs to their favorite servers. It was a friendly, welcoming vibe.
The food was good, the fried eggs cooked perfectly, the hash browns deliciously fried, sausage flavorful. Nashville Biscuit House doesn’t have a fancy, adventurous menu- they have the breakfast basics, and they do them well, quick, and at fair prices. If you’re looking for a traditional southern breakfast without breaking the bank, you can’t go wrong at Nashville Biscuit House. Keep an eye out for a full Eat It, Tennessee review in the future.
