The Breakfast Klub
If you haven’t figured it out by now, Houstonians love great food and so do we, which is why we feature so many different restaurants on this blog. However, the Breakfast Klub is known for more than just great food. It’s also a cultural hub and a center for Black politics within the city of Houston.
Going to the Breakfast Klub is truly an experience. Before you even walk in the door, you are greeted by a member of the staff with a smile and a menu in hand. Gospel music plays overhead, and suddenly you feel like a member of the family, which is what Houston is all about.
Vibrant local art that’s for sale adorns the walls, and laughter fills the air. Everyone really is happy to be there. It’s a “kommunity” of individuals brought together by amazing food. And when we say the food is amazing, we mean it. The Breakfast Klub has been featured in USA Today, Good Morning America, Esquire and Forbes. It has been hailed as one of the best breakfasts in America (and dare we say it, the world).
Although all of the dishes are incredible, they have two specialties that you have to try. First up, the Katfish and Grits. It’s a twist on a Southern classic, served with eggs and toast. It’s also just one of the reasons that the Breakfast Klub is known as a grits factory. Next up, is the always popular Wings and Waffles. These wings are fantastic, seasoned with a special blend of house spices and served with a big Belgian waffle.
So, we sat down and waited. As the food arrived at the table, we dug in. Knives and forks went flying, food was being shared left and right and before we knew it, we had a table covered in empty plates.
No matter what your day may bring, you can start it off right with a great breakfast. Whether you live in Houston, are visiting family, or are just passing through, you have to make a stop at the Breakfast Klub. But, be sure to get there early—the line is always out the door.
• This is not a quick stop by any means. The line is usually out the door!
• There is only one location, and the owners want to keep it that way to maintain the community feel.
