Being home on mat leave means more brunches and lunches – one place I’ve been meaning to check out is Chewie’s Biscuit Co. They’ve recently opened up in Kits where you can get your southern favourite – biscuits and gravy ON!
Chewie’s Biscuit Co. specializes in freshly baked buttermilk biscuits and a variety of ways to enjoy them. For people with food allergies or preferences, they also have vegan and potato buns along with veggie gravy to substitute their sausage gravy.
You can also order other items including french toast style biscuits, bennies and sides including onion rings, dirty fries and portobello mushroom fries.
On our recent visit, we ordered the Moose, Fruity French Toast and Onion Rings.
The Moose ($12) is fried chicken breast, bacon, egg, cheddar cheese and sausage gravy served in a biscuit. The biscuit is crispy on the outside with soft, buttery goodness on the inside. With the combination of egg, cheese, bacon and chicken, it made for a very filling meal.
The chicken is tender and breaded lightly so it’s still crunchy but not overly done. Overall, I really enjoyed this biscuit – it didn’t feel like I was too stuffed afterwards.
I wish I had a bit more gravy on the side to dip some of my biscuit in. I’m not sure whether you can order extra gravy on the side, but if you can, I’d recommend it!
Fruity French Toast ($9) – Is a biscuit served french toast style with some whipped cream and strawberry compote.
I liked this spin on french toast – the biscuit was still crispy and the buttery taste really complimented the sweetness of the dish. I didn’t find the dish too sweet but very enjoyable.
Onion Rings ($5) – Onion rings is one of my favourite things to order at a restaurant and so I just had to try them out here.The breading is great, not too thick and still quite crispy and served hot.
The seasoning gives it a nice little kick without being too overwhelming. These onion rings aren’t served with sauce, but the flavouring doesn’t need sauce anyway.
I’d definitely love to come back and try different items on their menu!
