When a restaurant receives countless “Best” awards or “Top Rated” monikers, you have to check it out for yourself, right? Well, the Breakfast Klub (yes, with a “k” — they do that just so you’ll ask and remember them!) has earned every single honor it’s received. Located in Houston’s Midtown, the Zagatrated Breakfast Klub has been recognized as one of the best breakfast restaurants in the nation by Good Morning America, USA Today, Esquire and Forbes.
From the time you hit the door, you’re greeted with two things: a welcoming “Good morning” (no matter the time of day) and a smell of deliciousness that’s a sure-fire promise of what’s to come. Known for feeding the mind and soul, this social institution attracts all types of folks willing to stand in line for the succulent “katfish,” buttery grits, perfectly fried wings, golden-brown waffles, delectable pork chops and exceptional eggs. The Texas-sized portions don’t disappoint.
Since its opening in September 2001, the Breakfast Klub has become a top tourist attraction and voted a local favorite breakfast spot. Native Houstonian Marcus Davis, the mastermind behind the Klub, recognized the void in the market for unique breakfast restaurants serving foods that spoke to the soul. He created an inimitable experience, melding mouthwatering food with an environment that evokes a spirit of community.
If one meal isn’t enough, fear not! Not only can you fill your belly, your spirit and your soul with the delicious goodness of the Breakfast Klub — now you can fill your pantry as well. The restaurant has developed consumer products for the home that include breakfast coffees, waffle and pancake mix, and a soulful and savory seasoning mix.
This fan favorite has been wowing palates and filling bellies for 18 years and has no inten- tion of stopping. In fact, the Klub has a sister location in the George Bush Intercontinental Airport that was recently awarded USA Today’s Best Airport Local/Regional Dining Restaurant in its 2019 Readers’ Choice poll. The Breakfast Klub, and all of its other restaurants — the Reggae Hut, the Alley Kat and Kulture: An Urban Komfort Kitchen — are all known for great food, outstanding service and an exceptional atmo- sphere where you’re treated like family. You should make time to visit them all and com- pletely — excuse me, kompletely — savor all the goodness they have to offer.
Do your stomach a favor — visit the Breakfast Klub on your next visit to Houston.
