“We’d love to see more people come in for breakfast,” Eamon Kalafchi said. “Lunch is definitely a busier time unless it’s the weekend, when everybody is coming in from 7 a.m. until 12:30 [p.m.], where brunch is really heavy.”
Kalafchi said his family has only operated breakfast restaurants, so Biscuit’s popularity with the lunch crowd since its opening in January 2019 has been a surprise.
“We still have a lot of breakfast traffic, but it’s just slightly biased toward the lunch side,” he said. “A lot of people who have breakfast before going to work or breakfast meetings are usually going to a restaurant that’s on their way to work. Because we’re tucked into [The Centre at Preston Ridge] shopping center, it’s more of like a local thing, where people who are in the area are more familiar with it.”
After the coronavirus pandemic took hold in March, Kalafchi said, Biscuit switched to offer only curbside pickup for customers and began working with third-party delivery services, such as Grubhub and DoorDash. While there has been a steady increase in diners back in the restaurant lately, he said, Biscuit continues to do a large amount of takeout orders.
“The reason it’s increased so much is because we weren’t on [those services] before,” he said. “A lot of people who are into having their food delivered to them are taking the opportunity. But breakfast isn’t really something you want to take out. Personally, I wouldn’t want to take eggs and bacon home to eat.”
One item that has been very popular with diners, both in person and for takeout, is Biscuit’s signature beer biscuits. Neda Kalafchi said the beer biscuit recipe has been a family staple for years and was a huge hit at another of the family’s restaurants.
“We knew we wanted them on the menu at any of our future restaurants,” Neda Kalafchi said. “When we were brainstorming names for our newest concepts, we decided the beer biscuits were more than worthy of [being the] namesake. Thus, Biscuit was created.”
