I have been wanting to try Se7en Bites for ages, so when I knew we’d be close by for a race last month I suggested trying it out. They open at 9 am and they were already pretty busy when we showed up at 9:05 am. It isn’t a big place, so keep that in mind when planning your trip.
The night before we went they posted on Facebook about a special they were having the next day – a chicken biscuit with scratchmade pimento cheese and ginger lavendar jalapeno jam. Oh my – I had to have it! I ordered it and was not disappointed. I also had an Orange Blossom Iced tea that was great. I could have drunk a gallon of that stuff with no problem.
On the way out I caved an bought an Oatmeal Cream Pie. It was almost as big as my head! I saved it for later and it took me two tries to eat it because it was so big. But man oh man was it delicious.
You order at the counter and then they bring your food out to you on a cute little baking sheet. Everything is hand written on chalkboards near the register since their menu is always changing. its super cute, but since I don’t have the best eye sight it meant I really couldn’t make any decisions until I was at the front of the line. Thankfully I knew what I wanted and didn’t hold things up too much.
The staff there is amazing! So nice, friendly, and knowledgeable. I asked them about how spicy the jam was when I ordered it (im a wuss) and they assured me it wasn’t that bad. While we were eating the owner came over to check on us and made sure the sandwich wasn’t too spicy.
My only real issue was the price. It was close to $10 for a chicken biscuit and iced tea. I KNOW why the prices are higher – they use great ingredients and everything is scratchmade. Oh yeah, and its super tasty! But its still a little high for my liking. I think I was more upset about the $2.50 iced tea than the price of my food. But that isn’t going to stop me from going back and bringing my friends.
