|Our No. 3 pick proves oysters are great no matter the hour.|
If you can't find anything to eat at Liberty Kitchen, you may need to reevaluate your life. The massive menu is filled with winners, from old-school comfort foods like open-faced tuna melts and brisket hash to modern soul food like grilled oysters topped with bacon jam, butter, and jalapeño. There's even an omelet loaded with fried oysters, spicy aioli, and slaw.
And if you're an early(ish) riser, a select "Happy Hour Breakfast" is available between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. for just $4 to $5.
2. Shade Saturday & Sunday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
It's easy to see why Shade has stayed popular over the years. It's even easier to taste. Their decadent, fluffy bacon and sundried tomato quiche, made even richer by a thick and buttery housemade crust, rivals any in town, as does the maple-syrup drenched (well at least we drench ours) challah french toast topped with whipped cream and fresh berries. Tack on a few blood orange mimosas or pickled okra bloodys for an even better time.
