All of the food in Charleston was pretty amazing, but my very favorite (and the only place I made a point of visiting twice), was Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit on King St. This little biscuit shop is everything. The menu is as small as the petite shop itself, because they focus on one thing and one thing only: Incredibly. Delicious. Biscuits. (And okay, they had awesome grits too). There are several biscuit varieties on offer – I stuck with the classic buttermilk, and also tried a cinnamon. I honestly can’t describe – I mean, biscuits are one of those foods where even when they’re bad they’re still good, and these were GOOD. Like, the epitome of what you look for in a Southern biscuit. Thick, warm, buttery, flaky…perfection. See more after the jump!
I love how different Charleston is from NYC. They had two offerings for lightening your coffee – cream, and whole milk. No soy milk, almond milk, skim milk, 2%, like you see in coffee shops here. Also at every eatery we went to, they asked you if you want “room for cream,” when they pour the coffee. They just assume what you’ll add will be cream. I mean, that’s my kinda place!
I’m drooling. Please open in NYC! Oh, wait…they ship nationwide. I see buttermilk biscuits in my immediate future.
If you’re going to Charleston, Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit definitely needs to be at the top of your itinerary. Stay tuned for more about Charleston food to come next week, and to see the charming boutique hotel where we stayed, check out Monday’s post. Have a great weekend!
