With the importance of breakfast for starting your day off right, you can’t just pick any old place for your meal! And it becomes even more difficult when you’re in Oklahoma, where breakfast joints are among the very best in the country. There are so many great restaurants to get a bite in the morning. Here are some of the most special.
The Eggs Benedict and cheese grits are highly recommended, but everything on the menu is wonderful. Fresh orange juice, great coffee and excellent service, what more could you ask for?
Jimmy’s Egg is an Oklahoma favorite, and it has locations across the state. It’s known for breakfast. The homemade toast goes great with an omelet, made to your specifications.
The Painted Horse is not only a bar, but it serves a breakfast menu. The Toad in the Hole has got to be one of my absolute favorite breakfasts, and the Painted Horse has a unique twist. The coffee is excellent and the baristas are superior.
The Bramble has earned its accolades by being “globally inspired and locally sourced.” The restaurant makes its own jams, jellies and butters, just to start. All the ingredients are from local farms, dairies and ranches. It’s hard to find a better breakfast in Tulsa.
The Big Nasty, Chicken Fried Chicken on biscuits, smothered with country gravy is absolutely delicious, albeit a bit unhealthy. Splurge once in a while at this local favorite.
The Grubb Hut is one of those places that can’t be judged by the outside. You have to go in and taste the food. The pancakes are wonderful, and the eggs are always cooked just right.
Lucille’s has been a stop on Route 66 since 1927. It was named for Lucille Hamon, who was inducted into the Oklahoma Route 66 Hall of Fame for her 59 years of service to travelers. They have a good breakfast menu for when you’re on the road that comes with a huge serving of history.
You might have to wait for a table, but it will be worth it. The special of the day is usually an interesting twist on a breakfast favorite, like a crab & spinach omelet or crab cake benedict.
For breakfast with a Latin flare, you have to try Café Kacao. Guatemalan oatmeal will make you rethink cereal for breakfast, and the fried plantains are so much better than potatoes.
Enjoy coffee, crepes or pastries in the front of the Angry Mullet. You won’t miss the biscuits and gravy when you have a savory crepe, filled with cheese, bacon, egg and spinach, covered in a spicy sauce.
