Biscuit and Bean – Lunch – March 15, 2024 – Echo Park, CA.

The biscuit phenomenon has really taken over. If you’re a lover of real authentic biscuits, then Biscuit and Bean is a must try. It all started in Seattle when Michael Lazer visited the Biscuit and Bean up there, Michael was originally from Canada but made his way to Los Angeles with his family 30 years ago. Seattle, Biscuit and Bean owner Ben found that he and Michael had so much in common, both musicians and both loving the hospitality business. That location started serving Biscuit and Beans in 2014. So, after his meeting he decided to license the name and start his own branch here in Los Angeles. But it took a good 4 years to strategize and open his Los Angeles location. Both are very different, but have the same premise, serving mouthwatering biscuits with incredible coffee that people just can’t get enough of. The lines at the Biscuit and Bean in Seattle are always around the corner. Since Michael opened the Los Angeles location the lines are around the corner on the weekends in this very fun hipster neighborhood. Also, it has the perfect location in Dodger town on Route 66.

Michael says his competitor are not other biscuit makers but instead the ever-enticing bagel. He said that Los Angeles has always been a bagel town and he wants to change that.

Their beans are the great brand Fulcrum Roasters. Fulcrum Roasters are a full-service roaster based in Seattle with over 25 years of experience. Their deeply personal relationships, collaborations, and services transform how our customers experience and enjoy coffee. Fulcrum Roasters take pride in their commitment to providing high-quality, expertly roasted coffee and in their dedication to creating meaningful connections with coffee growers and their customers alike.

Only quality ingredients are used at Biscuit and Bean, they believe that the best way to create delicious and satisfying treats is to use fresh, strategically sourced ingredients, and make everything from scratch, just as you would at home.

Their biscuits are made daily using real butter and high-quality flour, resulting in the flaky, tender, and delicious taste that you love. They take pride in the fact that every biscuit and cup of coffee they serve is made with care, using only the best ingredients. It’s like getting a warm, homemade hug with every bite and sip.

Here’s What I Tried:


Fresh Brewed Pour Over Coffee, Snoho Mojo.  This is a very full-bodied coffee, that is guaranteed to wake you up!

Strawberry Macha Latte, the presentation is wonderful, it looks like a Neapolitan ice cream, it is delicious and flavorful.

Mache Latte, just what you would expect, but better.

Horchata Cold Brew, this is a very sweet, luscious, iced drink, I just loved it.


The OG, with sausage, sharp cheddar cheese, fried egg, tomato jam, and homemade biscuit. Break the yoke and watch it run down the biscuit with the lovely sausage flavor, a real winner.

Sea Biscuit, classic tuna melt, with Mama’s Lil Pepper Aiolo, and sharp cheddar. A tuna melt, but with a kick, just a great sandwich.

Clukin BLT, grilled chicken, Schreiners bacon, lettuce, tomato, and Swiss cheese. The bacon really makes this sandwich special. Michael Lazer said he really searched for the best meats possible to serve with his fantastic biscuits, he struck gold, Schreiners is all of that and more. An amazing, delicious biscuit.

The Blvd Burger with ¼ lb. Harris Ranch burger patty, fresh – lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, and American cheese. This is a whole other burger, with the biscuit being the bun, it’s really the perfect combination. I don’t think i could ever go back to eating a regular bun burger.

Biscuits and gravy, with 2 kinds of gravy. House made pork sausage gravy, and mushrooms and leeks gravy. The 2 gravy’s are other worldly, just perfection.


Mama’s Lil Pepper Aiolo.

Honey Maple Butter.

Tomato Jam.

Cran-Rasberry Jam.

Mixed Berry Jam.

All of the spreads are home-made, and each one is completely a different experience. My favorite combination is a biscuit with the honey maple butter and the mixed better jam, it’s a must have.


Tater Tots, these crispy plump little darlings, are the perfect accompaniment to my wonderful biscuits.

Michael says his real secret is pouring love into any of his home-made products. He doesn’t believe in rushing the process and the folding of the dough in a very specific way takes time. He starts his biscuit making process at 4:30 am, and by 6:45 am his lovely unique biscuits are ready for the consumer to partake. There are some other places that make biscuits but really, they just are not as good as Biscuit and Bean. When I was doing my tasting, he told me about getting a huge order in the early am of his Gracie’s Good Lovin’ biscuit, it pretty much stopped everything for him to fulfill this order of 28 sandwiches. He said it got it done in 30 minutes with the help of Oscar Maldonada, the friendly faced gentlemen who was also there during my tasting. Oscar been with Michael since they opened, and Michael adores him, and would not want it any other way. Michael feels adamant about his employees loving their work and having a great attitude. It really shows in all of what they do. Michael is very hands on and has a few employees, but for now he is the chef and overseer of all that happens at Biscuit and Beans. He started working very young in fast food restaurants and found his strength in producing and creating music. He has had many jobs, some in the entertainment industry and some in the hospitality industry. He tells me about one special job that allowed him to travel around the world as head of security with a particular celebrity that will go unnamed. He always came back to his real love of food and cooking. When the opportunity presented itself to open this new venture he jumped whole heartedly back into the business.

Biscuit and Bean is just so good, you too will love this new addiction. It’s a very simple interior with an authentic George Nelsen vintage clock, all as a backdrop for their amazing biscuits. So go on your own, or take a friend, anyone who needs to be uplifted and taste something that has been around forever, but Biscuit and Bean is a whole new take on these ever-loving little darlins!
