There's a coffeehouse in downtown Blowing Rock, North Carolina (on Main across from Morris St.) called Kojay's with completely fantastic cheddar cheese biscuits. Carolina style cheddar cheese biscuits are small and dense. I've never seen them anyplace else (though that may just be my own failure to notice).
The ones at Kojay's have dates in them for sweetness and pecan flour for crunch. Just the right amount of salt. Spectacular.
