The Downtown CHA Overnight

Maple Street Biscuit Company


This amazing little local restaurant serves up some amazing breakfast options.  I found it simply by chance.  I left my room after my First Officer and Flight Attendant didn’t answer their room phones and I found myself in the elevator with an older couple.  The wife happened to follow me to the front desk and as the receptionist was guiding me on local places to eat the lady chimed in and said, “You have got to try Maple Street Biscuit Company!”

I got directions and within 8 minutes or so I found myself walking into something I hadn’t expected.  This wasn’t a sit down restaurant like I imagined in my head.  There was a bunch of line staunches lined up at the front door.  I must have gotten lucky for once because there was no one in line.  After a short discussion with the very happy and friendly server behind the register I picked out my brunch.

I choose “The Five & Dime”.  A flaky biscuit sandwich with an all-natural fried chicken breast, pecanwood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese all topped with a fried egg and then smothered with their amazing homemade sausage and gravy with a kick!

She then asked me if I were an elf what would be my elf name.  The only thing I could quickly think of was Jack.  After a short weight I was enjoying this amazing knife and fork breakfast sandwich.  The egg was cooked perfectly, the flaky biscuit, smothered in gravy and melted in your mouth as the fried chicken breast crunched and the gravy added it’s special kick!  Just as I was thinking, how could I finish this, I was engulfing the last bite.  I would highly recommend a stop here if you have the time!
