The Hit List: 5 Eye-Opening Breakfasts to Try

Robin Barr Sussman | September 19, 2016 | Feature Features

Whatever your breakfast wake-up craving, you can find it in H-Town any day of the week and all day! Even so, you'll want to set the alarm early for these fresh, glorious morning respites.
EGGING ON Croque-madame at 51fifteen

1. Dish Society
This Katy spot (23501 Cinco Ranch Blvd., 281.394.7555) is serving build-your-own breakfast tacos, omelets, fruit-topped pancakes and egg scrambles. Don’t skip the famous brisket and eggs with smoked Gouda grits.

2. 51fifteen
Before shopping until you drop, prime yourself with sustenance at Saks’ gorgeously remodeled resto (5175 Westheimer Rd., 713.963.8067, in Saks Fifth Avenue). Jalapeno cornbread waffles stacked with Barry Farm Sriracha fried chicken, green tomato chow-chow and Sriracha honey are wild.

3. Morningstar
Coffee guru David Buehrer’s newest venture (4721 N. Main St., 832.382.3466) dishes up much more than coffee and fancy doughnuts. Chef Priscilla Nguyen, who also cooks at Blacksmith, is strutting out Korean steak and eggs over scallion pancakes; rice porridge with blueberries and pistachios; honey butter fried chicken biscuits; and more.

4. Revival Market
Pull up a chair here (550 Heights Blvd., 713.880.8463) for piping hot plates of Revival tostados, Texas mushroom omelets or silver dollar pancakes with house ricotta and rosemary blackberry jam. Regulars take the giant, flaky breakfast biscuit sandwiches to go, topped with in-house cured ham, gravy, yard eggs and white cheddar.

5. Snooze
Dig into breakfast and brunch seven days a week at Montrose’s latest hit (3217 Montrose Blvd., Ste. 100, 713.574.6655). Think breakfast pot pie, burritos, seven variations of eggs Benedict and local Boomtown Coffee served in a bright, retro space.
