The Biscuits:

Sorry vegetarians, BB says their biscuits are made from soft winter wheat, lily white flour, duck fat, and butter.

The veg friendly Eggplant Biscuit made with an ‘all-butter’ biscuit.

Good news- for those who don’t want a duck fat biscuit (and I count myself among you), just as for an ‘all butter biscuit’ and they’ll gladly whip up a veggie version for you. Vegans, sorry, but for now they don’t have a dairy-free option.

The Burning Questions:

  • There is plenty of vegetarian fare at Burnside. We ALL raved about this Roasted Broccoli (as seen above), which is presented as a whole stalk and tastes unlike anything we’ve had before. The veg biscuit (discussed above), and Pimento Mac & Cheese were all standouts.
  • Delivery is on the horizon, but won’t be available right away.
  • Ditto breakfast. Management tells us they’re open to doing coffee & biscuit sandwiches, but that won’t come online for awhile yet.
  • While they’ve been approved for outdoor seating, they won’t have it ready when they open Monday. They’re actually waiting for chairs- which if they’re as good as the ones indoor- might be worth waiting for.
  • You might be able to host a special event at Burnside. They’ve told us they’re looking into possible event spaces within their rather large establishment.
  • For more of our thoughts on Burnside, check out our Instagram coverage from Saturday.
