Best Biscuit Bliss

Mattie's at Green Pastures

The new standard-bearer for the historic Green Pastures space, Mattie’s dishes out a buttermilk biscuit that satisfies every quadrant: crunchy and flaky on the outside, fluffy and warm on the inside, and dancing the line between salty and sweet. Take a bite and squint. It's easy to imagine the original owner of the property, Martha “Mattie” Miner Faulk, sitting on the big wraparound porch and asking the same as us: More, please, and don’t forget the side of pink honey butter.
