First visit to Handsome Biscuit and not disappointed. Hella Fitzgerald was excellent with a side of Mimosas. Staff were very friendly and helpful. My group had an impromptu radio/karaoke singalong which made Sunday afternoon even more fun. Will be visiting again soon.

I enjoyed the food and had the Nashville biscuit which was as hot as it advertises. It was delicious but the kitchen was very heavy handed on the salt. The hash browns were good but also too salty. The staff is friendly. I would recommend...More

This is a don't- miss for breakfast in Norfolk. Get there when they open: a line forms quickly and only a few can sit while others will need to go take-out. Super-friendly service, good coffee, fresh sweet-potato biscuits with various combos piled on top, all...More

A lot of people like this place base on the crowd, but it’s a not place I expect to go to again. The food was fresh but just not something I crave. The coffee selection was limited and the coffee not so great.... surprising since...More
