Most people who grew up in the south know biscuits are a staple around the dining table. An Oklahoma City restaurant, however, takes that enthusiasm to a new level.
Located at 429 N.W. 23rd St., HunnyBunny Biscuit Co. is certain to have a variety of items on the menu to please any set of taste buds. The joint, which is the newest offering from Urban Management (of Packard’s and Interurban fame) opened in February 2018.
“We love breakfast and the thought of starting the day with good food and good coffee,” says Urban’s Morgan Schaefer. “We’ve had a lot of fun putting together this concept.”
Unlike the group’s other restaurants, HunnyBunny is a walk-in, counter-service concept. Diners can enjoy full-service coffee and classic boozy offerings like bloody marys and mimosas.
“‘Bright and bustling’ would be a great way to describe HunnyBunny,” she says.
When asked what kinds of customers HunnyBunny caters to, Schaefer keeps it simple.
“Hungry ones!” she says. “We love welcoming all different customers in. Biscuits are something loved by so many different people.”
The restaurant is also conveniently located, making it a commuter hot spot for to-go coffees and biscuits.
“We enjoy being so close to many historic neighborhoods in the heart of Oklahoma City,” says Schaefer. “We are walkable for so many people, but still easy enough to get to for those coming from surrounding areas.”
The menu, which is breakfast- and brunch-focused, offers succulent, savory and spicy options, with one consistent theme.
“I believe there is only one menu item that doesn’t involve biscuits in some form or fashion,” says Schaefer. “A favorite of customers is our Biscuit French Toast. It’s unique because instead of bread, we just soak one of our signature biscuits in French toast batter and cook that up. Topped with berries, maple syrup and candied nuts … it is delicious.”
Other highlights include the Cannonball – the stuff comfort food dreams are made of with fried chicken, sausage gravy, cheddar cheese and a fried egg; and the Southern Gentleman, with pimento cheese, ham and pickled green tomato relish.
“We feel our biscuits are our ‘bread and butter,’” says Schaefer. “Our more typical lunch items, like the BLT and the Club, are both on biscuits versus a typical sandwich on bread, and it brings a little something different to these classics.”
Like to spice things up? Try the No. 7 with a hot link, jalapeno cream cheese and caramelized onions. Or, pick up the Charleston with fried chicken, collared greens, hot sauce and a fried egg. The Jefe is another stand-out that features smashed avocado, sausage and fried egg. And if you prefer your breakfast sweet, the Velvet Elvis – with peanut butter, banana, bacon and honey – is a quirky yet winning combination.
Customers can also enjoy a fried chicken plate (with a side of biscuits, of course), a chicken pot pie or a Sunrise Bowl with Greek yogurt, granola and fruit. Fear not: the crispy chicken salad even manages to work in the trademark food staple … in the form of biscuit croutons.
With newly expanded space for seating, Schaefer urges people to stop in and try this hidden gem. If you think biscuits are boring, HunnyBunny Biscuit Co. is ready to change your mind.
The restaurant is open daily from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, visit hunnybunnybiscuitco.com.
