The Breakfast Klub
18 Essential Black-Owned Restaurants You Should Know in Houston
Houston native Marcus Davis has built quite the community around this hearty breakfast spot—one that typically shows up in droves to dig into seriously enticing morning pick-me-ups like Katfish and Creamy Grits, an entire lineup of satisfying breakfast sandwiches, Smothered Biscuits and Gravy, and DIY omelets galore. TBK has been around for nearly two decades, but it’s never too late to jump in line and see what all the crispy, crunchy, and oh-so-buttery fuss is about.

The gist: Normally, approaching your favorite restaurant and spotting a line wrapping around the corner is a total nightmare—but for this star-studded haven, it’s well worth it. The Breakfast Klub boasts a breakfast drip so legendary that even Third Ward’s own Beyonce regularly stops by when visiting the city. If it’s Bey-approved, it’s definitely Houston-approved.
The food: Sprint, not walk, to this cozy establishment when hankering for a “cheezy” breakfast sandwich loaded with savory meats and scrambled eggs, buttery (and ridiculously creamy) grits paired with crispy chicken, or pillowy buttermilk biscuits doused in thick sausage-laden gravy. The lunch menu (served only after 11 am) is pretty delicious, too, decked out with familiar favorites like hearty salad and soup combos.
The cost: Plates $9.75 - $15.95, breakfast and lunch sandwiches $8.95 - $14.75, salads $13.50.
