Houston’s food scene has exploded over the past few years with so many options, it seems unlikely to expect Houstonians to wait in line at any restaurant. So, the line outside the iconic The Breakfast Klub every weekend seems like an anomaly but after just one outing, you’ll see why this breakfast spot is worth the wait. Over the years, the midtown staple has garnered a plethora of praise including being featured on Good Morning America, and earned spots on Best Breakfast Spot lists in Texas Monthly, Esquire and Zagat’s. In fact, the Queen Bey herself has also been known to pop in from time to time.
So, what makes The Breakfast Klub a can’t-miss breakfast excursion? It’s all about the food. Their two signature dishes – “Katfish & Grits” and “Wings & Waffles” – are among the most popular in all of H-Town. Seasoned catfish is served alongside some of the creamiest grits in the city and your choice of eggs. But for those who don’t like seafood, we cannot recommend the Wings & Waffles enough, with six crispy chicken wings surrounding a golden-brown Belgian waffle. Other southern comfort foods dishes like biskits & gravy smothered in homemade pan sausage gravy and the cheeky named green eggs and ham are also delicious.
The food isn’t the only thing that have kept hungry Houstonians coming back for almost 20 years, the no-frills attitude is refreshing way to begin those weekend mornings. Owner Marcus Davis strives to make each customer feel taken care of and like family. This come-as-you-are breakfast diner offers a cozy atmosphere that will instantly transport you back to your Southern grandma’s kitchen.
Additionally, The Breakfast Klub is the perfect restaurant to introduce out-of-town guests to great Houston food and hospitality. Visitors can even take home a piece of The Breakfast Klub’s kitchen with homemade pancake mix, chicken batter and seasoning for purchase. To get a taste, visit The Breakfast Klub every Saturday or Sunday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
