The Hot Biscuit...

This morning a friend and I decided to drive to Ticonderoga for some errands. The fun side of the morning was going to breakfast at one of our favorite restaurants.... The Hot Biscuit Diner.


In warmer weather you could take your coffee to the front porch and read the paper while enjoying a rocking chair.


As you walk through the front door the first thing you notice is the map. Each pin represents the home town of people who have eaten at the restaurant.

Usually we go on a Sunday morning and the booths are always full. This was late on a Saturday morning, so there were only a few people still there eating breakfast.

After ordering breakfast I walked around and admired all the great items to look at.
There is even a section of one wall devoted to "The Duke"...

The next time I'm at The Hot Biscuit I want to ask about this picture. It really captured my curiosity.
I wonder how many meals were cooked on this antique stove?
If you want a pie or other bakery items to take home they are waiting for you as you leave...

First to arrive was my friend's cocoa. A mountain of whipped cream adorned the top!

She said her breakfast was excellent!

I know my breakfast was wonderful to the last bite! The bacon may look over-cooked, but I always request that my bacon be "well done"... so I was completely happy with my plate of good food. Eggs over-medium, english muffins with grape jelly and bacon,..well done.

And of course the "dessert" of any breakfast for me.... good coffee!

The Hot Biscuit is now ready to cater your events. They have tents, outdoor kitchens, ... whatever it would take to make a special occasion perfect. But for me,... it's always breakfast!

This is definitely one of my kind of places! I love the fact that they have rocking chairs on the porch (kinda like Cracker Barrel restaurants!). And All those cool items on the wall - I think I want to put a canoe on my log cabin wall!
P.S. Did you see Rob at Cottage Chronicles nice posting on you?? :)

We are always looking for places to eat when we visit the Adirondacks we will have to look into this place the next time we visit.

Looks like a good place to eat before doing the pharoah lake hike! Thanks for such detail.

Hi Cedar. That looks like my kind of place... But--I have one question. Neither of you got a BISCUIT... What's up with that?????? ha ha

We have new computers--and have spent most of today getting them all set up. It will probably take another day or two. BUT-they are WONDERFUL--and faster than lightning.

Have a great Sunday.
Hugs,
Betsy

It looks like a delightful place to visit!! I know my husband would be crazy over the eggs and bacon! He likes his bacon well cooked as well.
Thanks for the tour of this wonderful place....

Hugs♥

Oh my. What a great looking place and name! Mrs. T and I do Saturday morning breakfast in a small town (300 people) nearby. We are "regulars" now so get in on all the talk. It 2 eggs sunnyside and toast and bacon (extra crispy) for me. And pretty much the same every time as the menu is, shall we say, quite limited. Thaks for the tour, gotta go, getting hungry.

Hi Cedar, this is just what I need this morning! A good hot biscuit!
Thanks for sharing this fun place, I hope I get to visit it some day.

Let me get this straight. You go the The Hot Biscuit and one of you has toast and the other an English muffin? Too funny.

Looks like a great breakfast place.

I've received some comments about me not having the biscuits at The Hot Biscuit,.. well I'm just a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast. But I know that if you want sausage and gravy on biscuits or chicken and biscuits you won't be disappointed...according to many happy customers!

Cedar ... said...

Froggi Donna,... if you and Stu get this far north next summer and go to The Hot Biscuit give a holler and I'll meet you for coffee!

Mountain Woman said...

Oh, the diner looks wonderful. I love places like that. Your food looked yummy. I'm headed off to visit their website and thanks for sharing your adventure with us.

montucky said...

What a pleasant place that must be! Your post should serve as an excellent publicity piece for them!

I'd sure go for some of the sausage and gravy and biscuits, myself!

Okay, you KNOW I love to eat and it is now 1:15 and I haven't had a morsel and I'm starving! And then I pop in here and look at your yummy and beautiful photos. You're torturing me!! lol

THANK YOU! for your kind comments over at Red Pine Mountain on my essay. And yes, those wonderful supportive mothers of our just may be related! Sounds like you were started down the road of a healthy self image, too! It's a gift!

Come on by anytime. :)

I love the Hot Biscuit. We usually go there once or twice a year.

My gosh Cedar you documented your visit thoroughly! I love it! Great little clean diner and the food looked delicious.

Thanks for taking us out to breakfast. I so enjoy viewing these little things that can seem trivial at the time : )
