Maple Street Biscuits (Tallahassee, Fl)

Maple Street Biscuits is not your usual biscuit & gravy place. They do serve traditonal biscuit & gravy, but they have so much more. The place is really cute and it feels like they have a lot of dishes with a southern twist.

I am not a big fan of the traditional American biscuit & gravy breakfast. However, as I saw this little place at the FSU campus in downtown Tallahassee, I just had to give it a try. Their biscuits are served with traditional sausage gravy or a vegetarian shiitake gravy. They also have biscuits with fried chicken breast and a flavorful jam or jelly. Even though there is a lot of fried items, these options - having a tasty vegetarian gravy or some jam/ jellys - were much more up my alley :) The biscuits as well as the gravys, jams, and jellys are fresh and homemade from scratch.

The Squawking Goat

One of their famous items is the "The Squawking Goat" - a biscuit with a fried chicken breast and a fried goat cheese medallion with a sweet but spicy pepper jelly. This dish was supposedly even featured at the Foodnetwork. Of course I had to try it :) It did taste delicious. Maybe the chicken as well as the goat cheese could have been a little thinner as it is a lot.

The Sides

I also ordered some of their sides - a Hash Brown Cake and some Fried Green Tomatoes. The has browns tasted really good with the spicy pepper jelly from my squawking goat biscuit :) Also, I was especially blown away by those fried green tomatoes, a typical southern dish. I always was hesitant to order them, because they are fried and I did not think they would taste so much different then red tomatoes. But they are slightly more tarte which complements the fried crust. I thought they were really good.
