In 1993 Karin Tucker and Barbara Bredehoeft opened Biscottis as a cozy 37 seat coffee house. It quickly became a landmark success and now seats 100 in a beautiful turn of the century brick and wood interior building. Offering casual comfort, innovative cuisine (try the fabulous Sunday brunch), and with a personality all its own, the Avondale eatery has expanded to accommodate its citywide clientele.

Biscottis Ratings and Reviews
I have never had a bad meal here. Brunch is excellent and they open early so us early birds can really have breakfast here. I was not a bread pudding girl until I met up with Biscotti's bread pudding. I have never tasted anything as good as that. To die for! Warm bread pudding with vanilla ice cream on top. Save room, you won't be disappointed.....
Our server was phenomenal. We’ve eaten at Biscotti’s regularly for dinner as well as brunch. Our server was very attentive and provided excellent recommendations. The food was prepared perfectly and everything came out in a very timely manner. Excellent evening, our best as Biscotti’s by far.
Our waitress, Noê? was just terrific! But everyone who attended to us for our brunch was lovely. My friend had just flown in from Madrid, and I wanted to choose the perfect eatery. And it was perfect: being greeted inside the door, the table we got, the service, the food, and the waitress even took a little time to make us feel especially welcome. What's not to like about Biscotti's?
Love Biscottis. Great for a pick me up cheese and charcuterie plate after strolling around or a delicious lunch. Even if you are full, grab an amazing dessert from the case to enjoy at home later. Love the salmon blt, shrimp salad and of course, the biscotti are delish.
Waitstaff is friendly and helpful. It is a great place to take out of town friends - there is something for everyone.
Overall, still a decent restaurant, but not the community gem it used to be. The menu has become stale -- even nightly specials rarely change much -- and it seems to cater more to "regulars" than real foodies. Lots of potential in a prime location, but the owners and kitchen need to commit to a revamp of the old menu -- they could keep some of the tried and true dishes, but offering new or seasonal choices would keep patrons from getting bored.
Although the food and dessert was wonderful, I must say that the service was quite lacking. Our waitress only came over to refill our drinks once in over an hour of us being there. Also it took almost a 1/2 hour to get coffee.
We went for my husband's birthday and our bill w/appetizer, entree's, drinks, & dessert was well over $100, but yet we did not get my husband's birthday dessert for free or a discounted price. I definitely do not expect something for nothing and whenever we have gone in the past we have always tipped well above the expected 15%. I have to say that it may be a while before I go back, if I ever do.
Awesome selections for lunch! Salads were filled with flavor & dressing on the side with options!
Server was attentive & patient ... made fabulous recommendations & toured the dessert case with us ... must’ve been over 15 choices for dessert.
The coconut cake was delicious!
Can’t wait to go back! Maybe for brunch next time!
Each of the four of us in our party had a very good meal. It was a little noisy with a lot of people there, but was quiet as customers thinned out. Nice variety on the menu, portions were plenty without being overboard, presentation was great, seemed freshly prepared and the fruits and vegetables were nice and fresh. We finished with GIANT slices of cake which were fabulous.
