Rise & Shine Biscuit Kitchen + Basil Doc’s = Good Stuff


In a brilliant business move (i.e. cheaper rent), the Basil Doc’s on Holly Street now shares space with three-week-old Rise & Shine Biscuit Kitchen and Cafe. In the mornings (7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the weekends) the location sells coffee and homemade biscuits, and in the afternoons Basil Doc’s resumes selling its tasty pizza.

The space is mostly designed for grab and go, but a cozy window seat and comfy chairs are conducive to sipping java and putting back a buttery biscuit.


Stay or go, but don’t miss the Asheville, a flaky, buttermilk-biscuit sandwich stuffed with sliced turkey, Havarti cheese, and a not-too-sweet honey mustard. Or order owner Seth Rubin’s favorite, the Chapel Hill, which sandwiches fried chicken between halves of a hot biscuit. (A liberal smear of the honey mustard makes this all the more addictive.)

Bonus: The biscuit of the day has yet to disappoint. Smother in strawberry jam or honey at will.
