I used to pop into the biscuit when I worked over on Properzi. Excited to have this deliciousness so close by!

We loved the Biscuit at its' original location. Our whole family loved the set-up at Bow Market, especially during the height of the Pandemic. We also love Eastie and KO. It will be great to have a place to have coffee while walking around that neighborhood.

About Seabiscuit

After a decade working in the restaurant industry, Andrew and Greta Platt decided to strike out on their own to create a neighborhood bakery. In 2004, The Biscuit was born in Cambridge with Andrew serving as pastry chef and Greta managing the front of the house. The Biscuit quickly became a community institution, serving coffee and baked goods to residents and commuters across the area. After 16 years in Cambridge and a year of Covid-resiliency, the Platt's had an idea. Why not try out Boston?

Having fallen in love with KO Pies in East Boston years ago, the potential for the Platts to transition into the space was an exciting one. With Boston Harbor an oven-stone's throw away, The Biscuit has now become "Seabiscuit."
