Breakfast isn’t a big deal in the U-District. Maybe because it’s a neighborhood overrun with young adults who enjoy a handful of m&ms and a spliff for breakfast. You’d think that’s the reason why Morsel is so popular, but it’s actually because they just make excellent biscuits. There’s a different selection of flavors every day (hope for smoked onion black pepper), and you can get yours as a sandwich, topped with sausage gravy, or paired with a housemade spread like chocolate hazelnut butter. It’s all worth skipping your morning m&m for, but make sure you order the Spanish Fly no matter what.
