Biscuit Lab, popup biscuit shop in Lyman's Tavern on Sundays, is pretty awesome



UPDATE: I just heard from them that they'll be at Lyman's for the next two weeks, then taking a break and possibly coming back afterwards. Read on!

If you like biscuits, get yourself to Lyman's on Sundays for Biscuit Lab, a popup biscuit shop.

The past few Sundays at the bar at 14th and Quincy has hosted the popup, and from 11am-3pm, they serve biscuits and gravy, biscuit sandwiches, drop biscuits and grits "brulee," along with Lyman's beer and liquor. And it's pretty great.

A couple of weekends ago I got the sandwich with egg, cheese and sausage for $6.50 ($3 for a biscuit and $1-$1.50 for each item.) The biscuit was tasty and flaky and the rest of the ingredients made for a solid breakfast (in the afternoon) sandwich. I've also heard the "menage a trois" of three small drop biscuits of rotating flavors; when I went they had maple pumpkin, apple cheddar and honey black pepper, all for $4, and last weekend they had other items like a "Gaijin Bao" biscuit, PB&J and Chili Chocolate drop biscuits. The redneck Benedict with biscuit, ham, poached egg and gravy sounds great too.

The shop is continuing at Lyman's for the near future the next two weeks, then taking a break for the holidays, then maybe coming back or going elsewhere, so give it a go. I recommend getting there earlier rather than later: the first time I went around 2:30pm and they were sold out.
