Stella San Jac's biscuits
| Amy D./Yelp

Biscuits round out the best meals, with its flaky, fluffy interiors and crisp exteriors, and Austin’s offerings are particularly strong. The baked good can work as a side slathered with butter, jam, or honey; doused with gravy; split into two for sandwiches; and just as well on its very own.

Among the best biscuits found in Austin are the not-so-secret ones from Southern restaurant Olamaie, the sweet and savory options from Fixe, the obsessed Biscuits + Groovy trailer, and others. This update includes South Austin coffee shop Patika’s kimchi cheddar biscuits, Phoebe’s Diner, Mattie’s at Green Pastures, and Eldorado's biscuit-scone hybrid.

For other baked goods, scope out Austin’s best bakeries, kolaches, and toasts. Plus, Eater took a closer look at the city’s talented bread bakers.

Everything below is listed in an unranked order. Make a care for any missing biscuits over on the tipline or within the comments beneath the map.
