Portland >Pine State Biscuits
Great Biscuits. I grew up in Texas and occasionally make my own biscuits from scratch because good biscuits are hard to find. These biscuits are excellent. Even my wife, who normally isn't a fan of biscuits, liked these. We tried plain biscuits with just butter and butter & honey as well as a biscuit sandwich with sausage. All versions, whether plain or sausage sandwich, were very good. The biscuits are large and one should be enough for most people. They have several biscuits and gravy versions, which we didn't try because we've never seen that preparation. Someone was having a biscuit with whipped cream and berries; that looked tasty.
Outstanding Southern Goodness. I'm originally from Virginia and often crave chicken biscuits and fresh brewed sweet tea that I was previously deprived of out here on the West Coast. Pine State has everything I need. I recently found them after the write-up in Portland Monthly and then made the connection where they made the Oprah list of best sandwiches in America. This is now my favorite place in the city. This is a must try for anyone that can truly appreciate the perfect biscuit, made from scratch daily special side items (along with everything they serve there) and good 'ole southern hospitality. Be sure to try the hand prepared chocolate milk. (leave some Cheerwine for me)
Citysearch Editorial Review. Though this biscuit shop has expanded beyond its original (and insanely popular) farmers market booth, even the sit-down cafe can’t contain the crowds. A line of biscuit-and-gravy devotees snakes out of the front door most days and runs the length of the shop on weekends; these devoted fans are competing for a smattering of indoor seats in the countrified cafe or a picnic table out front. Inside, cooks in bandanas and baseball caps build towering biscuit sandwiches like the famous Reggie Deluxe, a meat-lover’s dream complete with fried chicken, bacon, cheese, egg and sausage gravy. Simple fare like plain biscuits and spreads exists for breakfast purists but these aren’t the menu items that leave folks pining for more.
