1996 Best Biscuits

Salt & Pepper

Salt & Pepper bakes buttermilk biscuits every morning, using the authentic Texas recipe of owner Robin Peevey’s grandmother. These breakfast treats are moister than scones and tastier than muffins, and come in flavors ranging from blueberry, peach, and strawberry-rhubarb to sweet potato and cheddar and bacon. A Salt & Pepper employee sums up the general feeling: “People swear by these things.”
