Humble grab-and-go eastery bursts with flavor.
This tiny slip of a bakery packs a big punch of moist, flaky flavor from its quaint grab-and-go storefront. Hailed as one of the Lowcountry’s favorite laid back lazy breakfasts, Callie’s offers affordable and flavorful biscuits with a large assortment of accoutrements to build your own creations. From traditional bacon, egg and cheese to flavored whipped butters, roasted tomatoes, peach jam and more, choosing almost feels like a chore—until you bite into your personal masterpiece and appreciate the fruit of brain labor.
Looking for an easy choice? The classic cheese and chive biscuits are a good starting point for any newcomer, or go all out southern and order the biscuit bowl with slow cooked grits. If biscuits aren’t your deal, the pimento cheese sandwich is lauded by locals—given how Charlestonians cherish their secret family pimento cheese recipes, that’s major kudos. Beverages include King Bean coffee, mint tea, lemonade and other refreshing sips.
The long line that forms by mid-morning shows just how tasty these little biscuits are, so hop out of bed early to avoid a crowd. Your sleepy eyes will open wide at first bite. Don’t let the carbs keep you away; a gluten free option is available and besides, downtown is meant for walking! There’s so much to see you won’t notice how quickly you’ve strolled off the indulgence.
Not a morning person? Pick up some Callie’s and coxy up with comfort after late nights on the town. Wanna nosh a Callie's biscuit back home? Order online and ship direct to your door; there’s also a biscuit of the month club to ensure your craving never waits too long for satisfaction.

The little biscuit that could.
Founded in 2005, Carrie Morey started Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit in part as homage to her mother Callie, a former caterer, but primarily to ensure the iconic staple could be appreciated across the country. Having served those early-day biscuits to many catered guests herself, Carrie knew how popular they were. Featured on Food Network and The Today Show, and selected as a Martha Stewart “Dreamers into Doers”, Carrie is well on her way. Two Charleston locations, a local food truck, and new bake shops in Atlanta and Charlotte are only the beginning. We know she’ll take the biscuit phenomena further, but to us Callie’s Hot LIttle Biscuit will always be Charleston born.
Souvenir hunters take note! Carrie Morey’s cookbook, “Callie's Biscuits and Southern Traditions: Heirloom Recipes From Our Family Kitchen” is a terrific keepsake—offering new takes on favorite heritage dishes, and how to simplify traditional dishes—that truly brings your Charleston memories home.
