“Since the beginning of this business, fans of Callie’s Biscuits have urged us to open up a little shop — ‘a hot little biscuit shop’ they would say,”  said owner Carrie Morey. “476 ½ King Street has just the right character, and we’re thrilled to squeeze into all 629 square feet of it and make it a destination, albeit tiny, for biscuit lovers near and far.”

More about Callie’s Charleston Biscuits:
Carrie Morey had an early introduction to the food world courtesy of her mother, caterer extraordinaire, Callie White. Callie’s unique style of Southern fare and global flair kept her booked years in advance for everything from casual Lowcountry gatherings and chic cocktail parties to celebrity wedding receptions. The client favorite were Callie’s unique country ham biscuits. So in 2005, Carrie convinced her mother to postpone retirement and start Callie’s Charleston Biscuits, devoted biscuit fan. With seven different varieties of biscuits and retailers all over the country, Carrie never dreamed that success would taste so good – buttery good that is. Carrie has succeeded in building a business that works with balancing a growing family and can be passed down through generations. What was once a biscuit legendary in South Carolina has now become a favorite across America. Callie’s Biscuits has appeared on the NBC Today Show and The Food Network’s hit television show Unwrapped. Carrie was chosen as one of Martha Stewarts’s “Dreamers into Doers”.
