Crispy fried chicken or classic egg and cheese are the crowning glory options for pastry chef Audra Guidry’s gorgeous, multi-layered, flaky biscuits. Then grab some of the bake shop’s assortment of sweet treats and an iced coffee to-go.

Big Al's Deli

Big Al’s Salemtown diner is a hush-hush local favorite among industry-types around town, probably because no one wants the word to get out to masses of tourists. His Bowser biscuit sandwich comes layered with bacon, sausage, egg, and cheese. Sub in a black-pepper parmesan biscuit for something a little different.

Barista Parlor

Barista Parlor draws plenty of attention for its coffee, but its no slouch when it comes to breakfast, offering several different types of hearty biscuit sandwiches seven days a week at each of its Nashville locations.

Sweet 16th

The small storefront in Lockeland Springs has served as a go-to neighborhood bakery for well over a decade. Sweet 16th’s “one to go” breakfast sandwich is a Nashville treasure. Sandwiched on a cheddar cheese scone — find a stout square of baked egg, green chili, and cheese breakfast casserole.

Biscuit Love

Karl and Sarah Worley's forever-hot breakfast spot is obviously all about biscuits, and they whip up some of the most popular biscuit sandwiches in town. Hungry bachelorettes and locals alike line up for the “Princess” featuring Nashville style hot chicken, along with the "East Nasty." Go secret menu and order the best of both worlds: the “Nasty Princess” — combining Nashville hot chicken on a biscuit with sausage gravy. Is that the most Nashville dish ever? It just might be.

Killebrew Coffee

Located in the ground floor of The Thompson Hotel, Killebrew serves up Revelator coffee, a variety of pastries and a few heartier breakfast items, including a daily selection of biscuit sandwiches — one of which comes with Porter Road Butcher sausage.

Five Daughters Bakery

The main affair at Five Daughters Bakery is the 100-Layer-Doughnut of course, but don't overlook the breakfast biscuits served at the Franklin location. Choose from local bacon or sausage, then they add an Amish egg and aged cheddar atop a homemade buttermilk biscuit.

Nashville Jam Co.

Recently moved to the city (Berry Hill, specifically) from a location on the lake in Old Hickory, The Nashville Jam Cafe is cooking up one of the more interesting biscuit creations in town. The “PB & J chicken biscuit” sandwich features fried chicken, pimento cheese, bacon, and tomato jam.

Holler & Dash

Copy Link

This millennial-focused fast-casual biscuit house from parent company Cracker Barrel now has locations both in Brentwood and in Nashville. Find over 10 different creative biscuit sandwiches selections to choose from, including both sweet and savory options. Their “chicken. set. go” is a popular choice — a biscuit topped with fried chicken, pimento cheese, jalapeno, and sorghum.

Pork Belly Cafe

Pork Belly Cafe is a hidden gem in Lenox Village, and is a popular source for breakfast south of town. The bacon cinnamon rolls are crowd pleasers, but don’t overlook the variety of breakfast sandwiches, which can all be served on a biscuit bun.
