Empire Biscuit opened over a week ago and already it’s pretty tapped, but we thought it was worth a mention for the fact that it serves (as you might guess) only biscuits amidst a Scandinavian style decor–and plans to be a 24/7 biscuit destination by Monday.

We took a trip last week when it was still pretty quiet and ordered a “Snuggah Boo” from its “Made for Each Other Menu” and a custom biscuit with Pear and Vinho Verde Butter on a Country Style biscuit (a note: the country style has lard in it).
Empire Biscuit loves lard so much, it’s their hashtag:
