1. Geraldine's Counter

4872 Rainier Ave S
Seattle, WA 98118
(206) 723-2080
Visit Website

Columbia City’s charming neighborhood brunch joint has many hits, but perhaps none more popular than the impeccable biscuits and gravy. Simple and unassuming, much like the establishment itself, the biscuits are topped with a hearty sausage gravy and accompanied by a side of hash and eggs, providing a well-balanced meal that won’t automatically induce a food coma.

2. Easy Street Records and Cafe

First browse the records then the menu at this West Seattle shop. Your eyes will quickly go to the Bizkits and Gravy: homemade biscuits topped with sausage and gravy, completed with two eggs any style, hash browns, and toast. It's a mouthful.

3. The London Plane

300 Occidental Ave S
Seattle, WA 98104
(206) 624-1374
Visit Website

Part bakery, part cafe, and part flower shop, this beautiful place has plenty to offer. But the simple star of the menu is the warm biscuit with preserves and crème fraîche. It's ambrosia.

4. Skillet Diner

Copy Link
1400 E Union St
Seattle, WA 98122
(206) 420-7297
Visit Website

A modest operation started in an Airstream food truck has grown into a multi-location, 100-employee juggernaut that dominates the Seattle breakfast scene. While Skillet is better known for its bacon jam, the biscuits and gravy here are not to be trifled with. They're smothered with layers of thick country gravy with tender chunks of spiced sausage.

5. Biscuit Bitch

2303 3rd Ave, Seattle
WA, 98121
(206) 728-2219
Visit Website

So many good things to try at Kimmie Spice's kooky chain (which also has locations in Pioneer Square and at Caffé Lieto in Pike Place Market), including the Canadian Bitch, sauced with maple peanut butter and bacon. The Gritty Scrambled Cheesy Bitch is a treat, too.

6. Serious Biscuit

401 Westlake Ave N
Seattle, WA 98109
(206) 436-0050
Visit Website

Biscuits with black pepper gravy; with fried green tomato; with fennel sausage; with fried catfish cake and green olive tartar; with smoked onions. Even if you're full, you'll get hungry reading the menu.

7. Morsel

4754 University Way NE
Seattle, WA 98105

Yes, the line will be long, but it'll move quickly, so don’t let that keep you from these legendary biscuits, especially topped with the savory bliss that is the country gravy (sausage or mushroom). The Ballard Morsel even has a drive-thru to satisfy your on-the-go biscuit cravings.

8. Biscuit and Bean

Copy Link
5905 15th Ave NW
Seattle, WA 98107
(206) 457-5735

Fresh, fluffy biscuits play many delicious roles here, from sandwich buns to cinnamon buns. The star of the show is the Spanish Fly sandwich, stacked with ham, tomato, egg, arugula, and sriracha aioli.

9. Seattle Biscuit Company

Copy Link
8th Ave NW
Seattle, WA 98117

This taste of the South on wheels, found most Sundays at Chuck's Hop Shop and Saturdays at Chuck's Central District, offers biscuits with sausage gravy, bacon and jelly, and more. What better base could you ask for at a beer bar?
