Gold Baby Biscuits

By Alex Tank | Feb. 15, 2020

Where was your last great biscuit moment? Somewhere south of here would be a reasonable guess. Now you can simply head to Suttons Bay to have a memorable, potentially addictive biscuit experience close to home. Next door to Mundo’s coffee shop, Alicia Manson & Lyndsey Egli of Gold Baby Biscuits are taking a modern tack on the Southern classic with satisfying flavor and delicate texture. Each biscuit is fluffy, miraculously moist, and, of course, golden. These two transplants from Chicago expertly pair fresh-baked biscuits with the perfect toppings. Tradition pointed us to the biscuit with butter and jam, a combo with subtle saltiness and fruity sweetness. For a savory take, we opted for the Lil’ Zipper, a sandwich layered with scrambled egg, white cheddar, and aromatic basil mayo on an “everything biscuit”, a seeded revelation so creative yet logical, you’ll wish you’d invented it. Winter hours are lean, so check online and plan ahead for your take-out action. Careful: You might just get hooked on the best biscuit in northern Michigan. 

Seek out Gold Baby Biscuits at 206 N. Saint Joseph St. in Suttons Bay.
