A look into the big biscuits and big flavor at the new Hillcrest Little Bakery!

The bakery also has really popular pancake flavors with pancakes so large they fill your plate.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — 1. The bakery was modeled after the owners’ favorite hot little biscuit shops around the south and unique flavors they discovered traveling around the world. Their specialty is hot little biscuit sandwiches with an Arkansas spin of having huge biscuits with huge flavor. Hot chicken biscuits and avocado egg biscuits are some of their most popular flavors.

2. The bakery also has really popular pancake flavors with pancakes so large they fill your plate. The Nutella pancakes and bananas foster pancakes are some of their best sellers.

3. Their big, biscuit and gravy plates are named after parts of central Arkansas and Little Rock! One of their bestselling biscuit and gravy dishes is the Hot Springs. It’s a biscuit covered in gravy and cheese with hot chicken and scrambled eggs on top.

4. It would not be a proper bakery without some delicious cakes and pies! The cheesecakes there are one of their most special items. Using a special family recipe, they are known for having a lighter bodied cheesecake with a unique crust. They use vanilla wafers in the crust to give it extra sweetness.

5. HLB has a mission of using locally sourced products and also sustainable business practices as well. They have a mission to be as waste-free and ecofriendly as possible. They use biodegradable straws, lids, and utensils for to-go orders. They have recycled paper bags and cups and fiber togo boxes.

Rob and Amanda’s Pro Tips:

Rob: The bananas foster pancakes were some of the best pancakes I have ever had. Highly recommend.

Amanda: You can’t go wrong with a good hot chicken biscuit. This one was great! If you aren’t sure what to order I would start there! Also, they have breakfast all day and they are open on Monday when a lot of other restaurants tend to be closed!
