I honestly can't get enough of Cafe Kacao. The staff really made a positive impression on me - they were friendly, energetic, and seemed really happy to be there, which created a great atmosphere for customers. The food was just amazing, with so many options it was hard to choose. There's a reason this spot is known as one of the best breakfast places in OKC; it really does live up to its reputation. Portions were big, but definitely delicious. Just a heads up - they get really busy, especially on weekends, so try to get there early or visit on a weekday if possible. A personal favorite of mine is the blueberry pancakes - they're like dessert for breakfast!

Good Gravy

Good Gravy is my absolute favorite spot for breakfast in OKC. I've been a regular for years and have always been met with stellar service and extraordinary meals. The staff are friendly, quick, and great at giving menu advice. I've been stunned by the dedication this place has to customer satisfaction time and time again - they even offer to-go drinks! The biscuits and gravy, their signature dish, are a must-try. Light and fluffy, these biscuits are superior to any you'd get from a can, and I opted for the cream/sausage gravy which was flavorful. While I wished for a bit more sausage in the gravy, the overall taste was delightful. Also noteworthy is the Bacon Lover's Omelette and the fresh fruit - both are mouthwateringly good, making this place a solid ten in my book! The comfort food here is done right, and it's clear that everything is made from scratch. The decor is a charming mishmash that adds to the welcoming atmosphere. It's clearly a favorite among locals, which is always a promising sign. Even if they're busy, trust me when I say the wait is worth it. I haven't found another breakfast spot in OKC that compares to Good Gravy, and I'm already excited to try more of their 43 different gravies! This is definitely a place you won't leave hungry or dissatisfied.

I had a fantastic breakfast experience at Waffle Champion in OKC. Despite arriving late, we were still able to get our food to go, with the friendly staff taking our orders efficiently. I enjoyed the Migas, sans salsa and corn strips, and my daughter loved her eggs and bacon. The chai and maple milkshake we shared was nothing short of delicious! I must admit, I'm usually not a fan of waffles, but Waffle Champion has made a convert out of me. Their French toast waffles, topped with pecans, strawberries and a tasty sauce, were easily the best I've ever had. Despite the long line, the wait was worth it. The indoor and outdoor seating arrangement speaks volumes of the restaurant's versatility, and I'd highly recommend this place to anyone looking for quality breakfast spots. Waffle Champion is tucked away in a quiet part of town, lending it a unique charm. I particularly enjoyed the mix of sweet and savory in my bacon, egg, and cheese liege waffle, and I advise getting there early to secure a parking spot. I visited again on a Thursday morning around 10am and it was bustling but not too busy. This time, I sampled the vanilla iced coffee, bacon/egg/cheese waffle sandwich, and the sweet French toast waffle. All the dishes were delicious, with the savory waffle sandwich working perfectly with the not overly sweet waffle. The outdoor seating with heaters and the overall vibe of the restaurant really elevated my experience. Overall, Waffle Champion offers a delightful breakfast experience, and I can't wait for my next visit.

I recently visited Kitchen No. 324 for brunch and was really pleased with the experience. The place was bustling with activity, accommodating everyone from families to couples to hen parties. The decor was charming and the overall atmosphere was pleasant. We started off with a round of muffins for the table, which were quite good. I had the Fried Chicken Pot Pie which was flavorful, although I thought the portion could have been larger. The Breakfast Sandwiches were also a hit across the table. The only downside was the lattes my daughter and I ordered, the taste and temperature were a bit off. However, despite this minor issue, I would still recommend Kitchen No. 324. The staff were professional, always on the move and made us feel very welcome. The venue is amazing and the overall experience was pretty great. I loved that the place was spacious and the noise level was just right for a comfortable conversation. The food was served promptly and was fresh and hot. My sweet potato sandwich was quite good and the Chicken Pot Pie was exceptional. The cleanliness of the place was also commendable, including the restrooms. I also had a memorable experience with the staff, who were happy to take a picture of us, making the day even more special. In conclusion, despite a minor hiccup with the coffee, Kitchen No. 324 offers a wonderful brunch experience with delicious food and a great atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit, whether you're a local or a visitor.

Marco Hriber

Jimmy's Egg in OKC is hands down the best location I've visited. The check out is always quick, even when it's packed - a stark contrast to other locations I've been to. What's impressive is their consistency, maintained by a team of dedicated employees, which makes me drive almost an hour to enjoy their service. The bacon here is exceptionally tasty and I often pick up meals for my bosses from here multiple times per week. The staff is incredibly sweet and attentive, even when they're super busy. One of the best things about this Jimmy's Egg was the service provided by Lorena. Her friendliness and constant attention made the dining experience even more enjoyable. I can still recollect the amazing breakfast omelet I had, while my daughter thoroughly enjoyed her lunch chicken strips. We both gave the restaurant a perfect 10 star rating. Moreover, I remember ordering the meat lovers omelet with biscuits and gravy, served with hashbrowns. Everything was perfectly cooked, hot, and tasted fantastic. The service was friendly and attentive without fail. The restaurant's interior was always spotlessly clean. I would wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone seeking a great spot for breakfast or lunch.

I can't help but emphasize just how fantastic Sunnyside Diner in OKC really is. As an out-of-town visitor, I was drawn to this place based on positive reviews online and now I see why. The food is simply out of this world. I decided to go for the French toast and Eggs Benedict and I have yet to taste anything that comes close to this. Their French toast is truly the best I've devoured so far. Michael, my server, was not only well-versed with the menu but also extremely friendly. I'm already looking forward to my next visit for their mimosas. This quaint little diner exceeded my expectations, despite being a franchise. I tried the biscuits and gravy with scrambled eggs and each bite was a culinary revelation. My wife had the 'fat Elvis', a unique dish that truly captivated my taste buds. As we made our way through Oklahoma City on a road trip, this local D&D gem was a delightful find. Their breakfast burrito, potatoes and sweet tea were all remarkable. The diner ambiance was simple yet welcoming with an eclectic music playlist and an early closing time of 2 pm. The breakfast we had was nothing short of exceptional. The food presentation was a feast for the eyes and the staff was courteous and responsive with an evident cheerfulness that didn't go unnoticed. Every dish we saw being served looked absolutely enticing. Their skillet cinnamon roll is an absolute must-try. I would unquestionably recommend the Sunnyside Diner for a memorable breakfast experience.

Jonas Solaris

Hatch Early Mood Food in OKC is a breakfast lover's dream come true. I've had the chance to savor their dishes multiple times, and each time is better than the last. The eggs Benny is a classic favorite, despite the Tuscan variant not being to my taste. The steak and eggs never disappoint, and the biscuits and gravy taste like they're straight from a Southern kitchen. The coyote omelet is a must-try, although I found the red sauce to be slightly on the bitter side. On my second visit, I discovered the delightful breakfast Cuban, which, in my opinion, is a dish everyone should try. The service at Hatch is top-notch, with our server Ashley making us feel comfortable and welcomed. Portion sizes are generous, so come prepared with a hearty appetite. The unexpected star of the show, however, was the iced latte - a refreshing treat. Parking can be a bit of a challenge during busy hours, but the short walk or extra circling around the block is worth it. On a recent stop during my travels, I was once again impressed by the friendly staff and inviting atmosphere. The varied menu had something for everyone in my group, from the Belgian waffle with bacon to the steak and eggs, and we couldn't get enough of the blackberry raspberry tea. Do yourself a favor and check out Hatch if you're in the area. Whether you're dining al fresco and enjoying the weather, or cozying up inside with a fabulous Bloody Mary and Smoked Salmon Benedict, you're sure to have a memorable meal. With its wonderful service and delicious food, Hatch Early Mood Food is definitely a five-star breakfast destination.

I had an excellent experience at Aurora for breakfast in OKC. The French toast with fresh fruits and the Hot Honey Latte were both incredibly delicious, while the staff was super friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming, making the entire experience even more enjoyable. While I initially had a minor disappointment with my order, the Cubano not quite meeting my expectations, the other menu items more than made up for it. The place gets busy quick, a testament to its popularity, but it's definitely worth a visit. From their burgers, to the coffees and baked goodies, everything is top-notch. The berries and cream pancake and the pulled pork hash were particularly delightful. An added bonus is their dog-friendly policy which made my furry friend as happy as I was. All in all, the food and coffee at Aurora were great.

HunnyBunny Biscuit Co has quickly become my go-to for incredible biscuit dishes. The variety is impressive, offering everything from biscuits and gravy to fried chicken and biscuits, and even biscuit sandwiches. The sides - particularly the collard greens and tater tots served - are just as exceptional. What really stands out though, is the staff's friendliness and eagerness to help. It was my first visit and I was a bit unsure of where to find everything, but their assistance was both immediate and heartfelt. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed, and the service is truly impeccable. Every bite was delicious, and the coffee, as well as the biscuits, were simply fantastic, easily making this one of the best biscuit experiences I've ever had. All in all, HunnyBunny Biscuit Co has not only won me over but has made me consider relocating to Oklahoma City. I'm definitely looking forward to my next visit.

I visited Hatch Early Mood Food and was charmed by its cute ambience, full of plants everywhere. I tried their pancake flight, with banana and blueberry pancakes being particularly delicious. The pineapple pancake, however, was just a pancake topped with fresh pineapple chunks. I left my meal choice to the waiter, who did an excellent job with his suggestions. The hash browns were interesting and the Cuban breakfast sandwich was satisfying. The iced chai latte was perfect. On my return visit, I had a special Benny with fried green tomatoes and guacamole, which was simply wonderful. Our waitress was outstanding, and I look forward to coming back again. One thing I appreciated was that the wait time here was less than other popular breakfast spots I frequent. The quality and flavor of the pancakes, juice, and potato hash were excellent. I felt the eggs lacked flavor and the bacon cut could have been more substantial, but overall, it was good. The hashbrown tumblers were delightful. The Tuscan Anne wasn't to my taste, but it was well made, and I'm eager to return to try other dishes. While the banana foster pancake was delicious, the strawberry pancake was topped with cooked strawberries which made them mushy. The walnuts added on it were too big and could have been chopped more. Also, my latte didn't make it to the table, but I wasn't charged for it, so I didn't make a fuss. Overall, my experience was positive but not something I can't live without. I'm sure I'll return someday.

I had a fantastic time at Black Bear Diner Quail Springs! The atmosphere was inviting and the variety on the menu was impressive. I really enjoyed my buffalo chicken wrap and absolutely adored the server, Sia. The pace here is relaxed, so it might not be the best for a quick meal, but for a leisurely dining experience, it's perfect. The service, headed by Jason Pickett, was excellent and the food was truly delicious. I particularly loved the flavorful prime rib, the homemade bacon ranch, sweet potato fries, garlic fries, and the cornbread which was the best I've ever tasted. The banana cream pie, chocolate cream pie, and bread pudding we ordered to go were also amazing. This place is perfect for families, with a wide range of menu options catering to breakfast, lunch, or dinner. My kids especially loved the bear decor throughout the restaurant and it’s also very reasonably priced. Our server, Michael, was very efficient and I couldn’t help but be charmed by him. I ordered the Eggs Benedict, standard and California style, with hashbrowns and fresh fruit, while my friends ordered an omelet with a biscuit and gravy, and a waffle with an adorable bear in the middle. The restaurant's woodsy decor, bear-themed pictures and scenes were very appealing. They also have a cute little shop area with Black Bear items which I found enchanting, especially the bear boots. There were a couple of minor issues, such as the trash by the front door and the restroom floor, but these didn't take away from our overall wonderful experience. I happily rate this place with a 5-star and can't wait to go back.

I've been visiting Okc for family trips for around 20 years now, and I'm shocked that I've only just discovered this diner. The breakfast was absolutely delightful with a wide variety of menu options. Service was top-notch, despite being a little short-staffed. I stuck with a classic breakfast of eggs, bacon, and toast, while my wife opted for the BLT with egg - all of which were delicious. The fact that they're opening a new branch at Hefner & May soon is exciting news. We had a fantastic time with our family from Ohio and Texas. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, made even better by our incredible waiter Kenneth. I can't wait to return. This has quickly become one of my favourite breakfast spots. I've been twice so far and both times were remarkable. The food tastes homemade and is cooked to perfection, especially the chicken fried steak.

I had an excellent dining experience at Metro Diner for breakfast in OKC. We ordered the Chicken Tender Plate and the Chicken and Waffles, each served with a Diet Coke. The food was outstanding. Nothing was mediocre and even the Diet Coke tasted unbelievably good! The portions were massive, providing me with a second meal. The place had a lively atmosphere and the music was great, reminding me of old rock tunes from the 70s and 80s. What impressed me even more was the speedy service and the politeness of the staff. The place was buzzing with a casual and friendly vibe. The staff was very helpful and our server, in particular, was patient and attentive. The food was outright delicious! The Chicken strips were a delight. The portion sizes were generous, both for adults and kids, which was a bonus. Our order was served promptly and our server did a fantastic job. The Chicken strips and waffles were a hit, especially with the spicy honey sauce. The pancakes with regular and strawberry whipped butter were also an absolute delight. The biscuits were a tad overdone, but still tasted good. There were numerous options on the menu. Despite living 30 minutes away, I find myself frequently returning because of their amazing food and the excellent service. In fact, on my last visit, the server, Gabby, went the extra mile to ensure that my meal was perfect and to my liking.

They also offer fresh squeezed orange juice which was delightful. I encourage everyone to show support for these local business owners.

On my recent visit to Sunnyside Diner in OKC, I found the food to be simply delightful with an array of delicious choices. The Cinnamon Roll was the star of my breakfast, it was truly scrumptious. The overall portion sizes were generous, much to my delight and the service was quick. However, the layout of the interior could do with some enhancement, in order to provide a more comfortable dining experience. And while the service was quick, there were instances where it felt lacking. We were a large group of 15, seated outside, and there seemed to be some hiccups in the coordination of our orders. We had to wait a fair bit of time for our orders to be served and unfortunately, my burger arrived cold. Additionally, situations concerning drink orders and missing silverware added to the frustration. It seemed there was a lack of communication or perhaps the staff were just having an off day. Although I understand the current difficulties in the service industry, it did taint the overall experience. Despite the service drawbacks, the food was great, with options that add a fun twist to the classic diner experience. The Cinnamon Roll will definitely be something I will miss. This place is surely worth a visit if you're on a family road trip, but make sure you have time to spare. The quality and taste of the food compensate for the service hiccups to some extent. Despite it all, I still found a charm to this diner that makes me suggest giving it a try.

The moment we stepped in, we were promptly greeted, and got seated instantly. Their servers are not just quick, but also incredibly friendly, ensuring that our glasses were always full and our needs met in an impressive timeframe. One thing I can't help but rave about is the food. It’s a rare gem to find a place that offers fast service without skimping on the quality of food, but Jeff's Country Cafe hits the nail on the head.

The chicken fried steak was truly delightful with its good portioning and delicious taste, reminding me of the kind of comfort food you'd get at Grandy's. Their gravy is one of the best I’ve tasted, and the strawberry shortcake was an absolute treat. Although I must say, they could improve the quality of their sausages and their pepper gravy, which seemed like it was from premix. But that’s just a minor blip in an otherwise amazing breakfast experience. What also caught my attention was the lovely, warm atmosphere of the place, making me feel right at home. Plus, they even have a private area for smokers, which shows their consideration for all customers. To wrap it up, I must say that my experience at Jeff's Country Cafe has been nothing short of impressive.

My wife and I have been going here for Sunday breakfast for the last few months and we enjoy it every time. Our server, Jody, never fails to remember our usual drinks, adding a personal touch to the service. In short, Jimmy's Egg may have a few areas for improvement, but overall, it's a great spot for a hearty breakfast with exceptional service. Looking forward to many more Sunday breakfasts here!
