Maple Street Biscuit Company has taken a Southern classic and created a whole community around it. If you’ve ever appreciated a freshly baked biscuit with gravy, founders Scott Moore and Gus Evans have brought it to perfection.

The biscuits at Maple Street Biscuit Company are just the way they should be — warm, fluffy, and absolutely delicious. Fill yours with hearty meat, such as chicken, bacon, or sausage, and smother it with gravy. Sausage and shiitake gravies ensure both carnivores and vegetarians have an option they like. 

For something extra hearty, make a whole sandwich out of your biscuit by adding eggs and cheese to the pile. There are goat and cheddar cheeses available, and multiple eggs can be stacked.

An alternative to the meat and gravy biscuit, the staff at Maple Street Biscuit Company prepares house-made jellies and jams that are absolutely delicious. 

In addition to biscuits, there also are waffles, bowls, and classic Southern sides. Collard Greens, Smoky Mountain Mac n Cheese, and Hash Brown Cake show just how much the menu is infused with regional cooking.

For drink selections, there’s a variety of teas, juices, milk, sodas, and water available. The coffee is what’s a real stand-out in this section, though. It’s locally roasted and offered as hot drip coffee, iced coffee, and in lattes. Naturally, there’s a Hot Maple Vanilla Latte.

All of this is served in a community-oriented setting at affordable prices. The tables are designed to encourage neighbors to meet one another, and menu prices are low enough to fit within most families’ budgets. Almost all of the biscuit variations run $10 or less (with some being available for much less).

If you’re a fan of Southern food and culture, you’re bound to love both the fare and the feel of Maple Street Bakery in Miramar Beach, Florida. Stop in for breakfast or lunch, and enjoy a good meal with good conversation.

A few of our favorite menu items at Maple Street Biscuit Company include:

The Squawking Goat
Formerly featured on The Food Network, The Squawking Goat will have you squawking about how good this place is. The house’s flaky biscuit is sliced and filled with a fried goat cheese medallion all-natural fried chicken breast and house-made pepper jelly. Full of flavor and different textures, this is a true delight.

Garden Frittaffle
For any vegetarian in your party, Garden Frittaffle takes on cast-iron goodness in the form of an omelet. Throw in some peppers and onion, some cheddar cheese, and crispy potatoes, and you’re in for a real treat!

Risky Biscuit
Sometimes you can’t improve on the original. The Risky Biscuit at Maple Street Biscuit Company is basic but good. Smother a house-made biscuit in sausage or shiitake gravy, and dig right in without anything else added. If you do want something a little more filling, go Extra Risky and get a fried egg on top.

Signature Maple Vanilla Bean Latte
Locally roasted espresso combined with frothy steamed milk, real vanilla beans, and maple syrup straight from the Bissell Family Farm. The perfect complement to any biscuit sandwich — or just about anything else.

½ Dozen Plain Biscuits
At a restaurant that’s built itself on basic biscuits, you know that those biscuits are good. Whatever you order to eat while dining at the Maple Street Biscuit Company, get a ½ Dozen Plain Biscuits to go. They’ll make a great snack later on.

Insider Tips:
-The staff here won’t ask for your name when they take your order at the counter. Instead, they’ll ask you the question of the month — like, “what was your first job?” That’s what they’ll call out when your food is ready. The current month’s question is on the board when you walk in, so you can think about your answer.
-Although this Maple Street Biscuit Company isn’t exactly in Destin, it is only a short drive of around 8 miles.
