Southern kitchen Little Ola’s Biscuits opened July 16 at 14735 Bratton Lane, Austin, in the Wells Branch area of North Austin.

The spot is a new restaurant concept from Olamaie, a James Beard Award finalist restaurant. Throughout the pandemic, Olamaie served its biscuits and small provisions as a takeout-only menu under the name Little Ola’s Biscuits before pivoting the venture into a brick-and-mortar location.
