    The baked goods are the standout here, like the $3 fluffy biscuits, which you can stuff with scrambled eggs and melted pepper-jack cheese. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!

    my favorite place in the city. Here's what you need to do. 1) order the shrimp + grits (wow!), 2) order the La Chouffe beer (seasonal and awesome), 3) build a biscuit (bacon + pepperjack). Game over!

    Peels' biscuits are an abomination. Their enduring popularity is offensive to my Southern sensibilities. A friend and colleague put it best when he said they are "fit for yankees".

    Best Cinnamon Sugar Yeast Doughnut: A remarkably light yeast doughnut with a liberal roll in cinnamon-sugar. It has the slightest whisper of a crunch, and a fluffy, moist interior all the way through. Read more

    It's not worth $18, but the baja salad with tomato, avocado, cotija cheese, and grilled skirt steak is unbelievably tasty and vaguely healthy.

    This is one of my go-to "cute" places. Between the build-a-biscuit, pastry case, Stumptown Roasters coffee, and Southern-inspired menu, I end up here a lot. Try the grits if you're really hungry.
