Ever heard of a bonut? Neither had we until we visited Biscuit Love, a cult-favorite breakfast spot in Nashville’s happening Gulch neighborhood, where morning queues often exceed an hour on weekends. And bonuts—deep-fried biscuit dough slathered in lemon mascarpone and balanced on a sticky heap of blueberry compote—are just one of the many hits on the menu. The restaurant had its origins in 2012 as a food truck, where husband-and-wife team Sarah and Karl Worley’s made-from-scratch biscuits made them an overnight success. In January 2015, they found their new home as a brick-and-mortar restaurant, where Karl mans the stoves while Sarah runs the front of the house, making sure patrons get their southern classics while they’re hot. Be sure to order the aforementioned bonuts, along with the sweet-and-spicy Chronic Bacon, the shrimp and grits, and the off-menu Nasty Princess, a biscuit topped with Nashville-style hot chicken, gravy, pickles, mustard, and honey.
