What many all over the world know as “J” day, the day Nike releases a new style Air Jordan, in my opinion, does not appear to have any standing if you’ve ever seen the line wrapped around Houston’s brunch hot spot, The Breakfast Klub.
On any given “K” day, dozens will stand, sit, or even camp outside in the heat of the day, dead of the winter, or hailing rain to indulge in one of The Breakfast Klub’s many “amazing” Southern dishes.
The Breakfast Klub is located in Houston’s Midtown at 3711 Travis Street at the corner of Travis and West Alabama. Until 2 p.m. daily, you can find the owner, Marcus Davis, and his wife, ‘Mel’, serving customers, taking orders, even waiting tables.
The two are always on site and hands-on with their staff, doing anything and everything they can to make sure their customers leave happy: grinning from ear to ear, mouths still watering.
Customers love their soulful cliché dishes like the “Fried Chicken and Waffles” and “Katfish and Grits.” Many say they have traveled far and wide and have yet to meet a match to Davis’ “perfectly fried chicken wings” or made-to-order “mouthwatering waffles.”
The restaurant offers many other Southern American favorites like “pork chops and eggs,” hot water Kornbread, krawfish etouffee, and the restaurant even has its own signature koffee. The food portions are sizable and affordable.
Last year marked the eatery’s ten year anniversary. Houston Chronicle Food Editor, Greg Morago, called The Breakfast Klub a “Houston institution in every sense of the word.” The restaurant and its owner have received high accolades in many forms from very diverse walks of life.
The Breakfast Klub was featured on Good Morning America in May 2010, as one of four finalists for “Best Breakfast in America,” after the show was flooded with letters from customers, and has been recognized numerous times as one of the “best breakfast restaurants in the nation.”
Davis attributes his grand palate and sincere love for food being nourishment to the body, to the greatest cook he knows, his late father, Jerry Davis.
The food does not stand alone when it comes to this restaurant’s superior success. The restaurant’s Jazz café-style ambience, cozy dining tables, soft-lighting, modern art dancing off the walls and friendly table-side service are topped off with self-serve bottomless coffee and Wi-Fi, enticing customers to do nothing less than fall in love with their dining experience.
