I'm on a quest to find the best breakfast place in New Bern. Hubby and I started at The Country Biscuit. They advertise regularly in the Sun Journal and in our neighborhood newspaper, the Greenbrier Gazette. The building doesn't look like much from the outside, and the location is not the best either. Inside is no better. It resembles a makeshift operation. Okay, so no ambience. We're after good food and good prices. The place is packed on a Saturday morning around 9:00, and that seemed like a good sign.
The menu is quite extensive with lots of offerings, but nothing is really cheap. So much for prices. The food must be great then, or so we thought. Guy ordered the Country Gentleman's Special for $7.50.
He said everything tasted fine, but the sausage was a very unappetizing sickly grey color, and the plate was just plopped on the table diner style.
I ordered one scrambled egg with grits and a biscuit.
The egg was "scrambled" before it was fried and was overcooked. The grits were instant with no flavor, and the bacon was just okay, but slightly greasy.
The biscuit was warm but had been reheated. It was hard, dried out and inedible.
I'm not seeing much of anything at Country Biscuit: no atmosphere, no serving grace, no presentation, no view. Prices are too high for the quality (or lack of) and food is subpar at best.
