Sick and tired of the same old fast food chains? Is SoVi dining becoming overly repetitive? Fear no more of the typical college meals. Next weekend, while strolling down Fort Myers Beach, stop by Heavenly Biscuit. The name speaks for itself. Located merely a mile down from Fort Myers Beach, this hole-in-the-wall, mom-and-pop style kitchen is a hidden treasure that will have you coming back for more.
To the average eye, this comfort cookin’ kitchen looks like a cottage pulled straight out of Southern Living Magazine. Home to locals and tourists, this kitchen serves to-die-for breakfasts and lunches that are sure to make you feel right at home. As you pull up to the restaurant, you can’t help but notice the “come as you are” attitude. Past the iron mailbox and hand-painted welcome sign, up the wooden steps to the porch, you will find yourself transported to your Southern grandparents’ cottage.
As an untraditional restaurant with limited seating, Heavenly Biscuit emphasizes takeout meals as their main gig. I recommend you snag a table on their white picketed porch and catch some beach air. Their laidback atmosphere is attributed to the easy access counter service. Unlike chain fast food restaurants that force you to pick up the food yourself, Heavenly Biscuit serves it right to you and allows you to pay at the counter when you’re ready to leave.
Homemade daily, the Heavenly Biscuit is famous for their cinnamon rolls. Just ask the locals, and they’ll tell you that they have the best ones for miles around. Hot n’ ready for each order, the cinnamon rolls are infused with hearty layers of cinnamon and lathered on top with melted icing. The gooey, fresh-baked dough is wrapped around crunchy cinnamon sugar, creating a flavor exploration for your taste buds.
Also sold at the Heavenly Biscuit are their famous homemade heavenly biscuits with all the fixings. Their menu tempts you to be as creative as you dare. With 12 different topping choices, ranging from egg and cheese to salmon steak, the possibilities are sure to leave even the most adventurous eater satisfied.
You might think to get food this good the prices would have to be unreasonable. Just looking at the prices baffled me! The sinful cinnamon rolls are a measly $2.83, and a biscuit sandwich with egg and cheese is only $2.00! The Heavenly Biscuit is sure to fit within your college budget. Don’t forget to bring along some cash, because the Heavenly Biscuit doesn’t accept cards. Conveniently, there is an ATM inside just in case you forget cash.
Next time you’re in the neighborhood or on your way to Fort Myers Beach, stop by the Heavenly Biscuit. You won’t regret it.
