6. The Breakfast Klub

Lookin' for some good ol' fashioned Southern cookin'? Look no further than The Breakfast Klub. Since it opened in 2001, it's become a Houston landmark, with lines out the door every day of the week, always filled with hungry people ready for the famous Katfish & Grits or Wings & Waffles. The Breakfast Klub is open only until 2 p.m. though, so start your day off right with the rib-sticking soul-food menu and service that is both quick and friendly. Don't bother taking leftovers home, though. It's the jazzy southern atmosphere that helps make The Breakfast Klub so delicious.
5. Ouisie's Table

The great thing about Houston's breakfast scene is you can go greasy spoon with a place like Tel-Wink or upscale and sophisticated with Ouisie's Table and Elouise Adams Jones's wonderful potato "nest" eggs Benedict. If you're feeling like something a little healthier (but only a little), try the Gruyère quiche, or the spinach, harrisa and feta crêpe. Ouisie's is also known for its chicken-fried steak with biscuits and gravy, available at 7 a.m. every weekday. Ouisie's makes classic southern food trendy and elegant, from dawn all the way through dinner time, and it has numerous Houston Press awards as well as recognition from Texas Monthly to prove how great it is.
