One of the first things anyone’ll notice when arriving at Winter Park Biscuit Co. is a bright, disco-ish “Hot Biscuits” sign (which we secretly want to own). After all, who doesn’t want hot biscuits? But so what did we mean in the intro about this place not being what it seems? Well – Winter Park Biscuit Co. is actually a vegan establishment. WHAT?!
Founded by Nom Yourself founder and cookbook author Mary Westfall (née Mattern), along with partner Neil Westfall of rock band A Day to Remember, Winter Park Biscuit Company offers vegan versions of familiar comfort food dishes.
But what about the chicken?

Yup – all of the items on the menu are vegan:
On this visit we went with the WPBC Box which consists of three (3) chik strips, a buttermilk biscuit and french fries.
We’re not typically huge fans of vegan dining. There have been one or two places around town that are pretty delicious but by and large we’ve just found vegan-based restaurants a little disappointing. And while it’s most definitely notable that this isn’t real chicken (mainly due to the texture of the “meat”) the flavor is actually really delicious. And the vegan buttermilk biscuits are worth paying this place a visit alone.
Of course biscuits and chicken aren’t the only specialties. Customers can also choose from burgers, sausage gravy (and biscuits), seasonal fruit shortcakes, and crab cake sandwiches. Here are a few tasty pics we borrowed from Winter Park Biscuit Company’s Instagram:
(We actually think the description of the Kale Caesar Salad sounds really delicious.)
