Sweet Lake Biscuits and Limeade

In what has become a common story, Sweet Lake Biscuits and Limeade started at a farmer’s market before success allowed them to move in to their own building.  Judging from the crowds, loyal customers have followed. We were the first ones in the door when Sweet Lake opened at 7:30 on a Friday morning and by 8:00 every seat was taken, with a line out the door.

The signature breakfast entrée is the “Hoss”, which stuffs a crispy fried chicken breast, fried egg, cheddar, green onions and double-thick bacon inside a biscuit.  The bottom half is then topped with a thick, peppery sausage gravy.  While all the ingredients are high quality, this dish wouldn’t work if a lesser biscuit was used.  These tall, rugged-textured biscuits are crumbly, but still with enough substance to easily handle all this heft.  As a side order, don’t miss the earthy red quinoa hash browns.

I rarely order limeades as they tend to be overly sweet, but here Sweet Lake uses organic cane sugar.  The honeydew cucumber limeade made for a delicious combination; and cool, refreshing mint with sunny citrus flavor was just what we needed on a hot June morning.  For those who like it spicy, habanero limeades and habanero hot chocolates are also available.

The fact that limeade is in the title of the restaurant tells you the beverage of choice. That's mint on the left, honeydew cucumber on the right.
