Morning Biscuit Date: Maple Street Biscuit Company

Maple Street Biscuit Company

Maple Street Biscuit Company just made its debut on Central in the heart of St. Petersburg.

With multiple locations in other parts of Florida, the people of St. Pete are excited to finally have a Maple Street Biscuit Company of their own. Although it has only been open since the beginning of April, Maple Street is extremely popular with couples lining up at the door outside, waiting to order their decadent biscuit sandwiches.

Maple Street’s biscuits are buttermilk and made in-house every morning. They are buttery, flaky, and melt in your mouth with each bite. You can go in and buy a ½ dozen or dozen with a side of homemade jam, jelly, or apple butter, but it is the sandwiches that really make this place stand out.

One of the local favorites is the Squawking Goat, which has previously been featured on Food Network. It starts with a fresh biscuit, of course, and stuffed between each half is a crispy all-natural fried chicken breast, a fried goat cheese medallion, and topped with homemade pepper jelly. For only $8, you and your loved one can taste a breakfast sandwich like no other.

Another favorite is the Sticky Maple. This sandwich comes with a piece of fried chicken, pecan wood smoked bacon, and is topped with maple syrup inside one of Maple Street’s famous biscuits. Couples also love the Big Five, which comes with the delicious chicken breast, bacon, cheddar cheese, and topped with homemade sausage gravy, as well as the option to add a fried egg for a small extra charge. A vegetarian option for the non-meat eating lovers includes the Iron Goat: biscuit, goat cheese, and sautéed spinach.

In addition to the biscuits, Maple Street also offers other tasty options such as chicken and waffles, which have pecan wood smoked bacon cooked inside, hashpups (home fries topped with smoked ham, peppers, grilled onions, and melted cheese), cream cheese grits (topped with bacon, butter, and chives), fried green tomatoes, and more. They also have a variety of fresh juices and coffees to help you and your loved one wash down all the decadent food you are inhaling.

The staff at Maple Street is incredibly friendly, helpful, and will make you feel right at home. In addition, when you are ordering at the counter, rather than asking for your “name for the order,” they will ask a more personal question such as “What’s your favorite band?”

And don’t worry, even if the shop is crowded, your biscuits will still come up quick. With spacious indoor and outdoor seating areas, there is plenty of room for couples to sit.

Maple Street is the perfect date spot for couples looking to try a new yummy place for breakfast. Grab your loved one and head on down to Maple Street. Trust me, you’re going to want to try these biscuits.
