Hatch has quickly become one of the most popular breakfast spots in Oklahoma City. After my last visit, it’s easy to see why- the menu is delicious and the industrial-chic interior is simply gorgeous.
You can find classic items such as steak and eggs, biscuits and gravy, and chicken-fried steak on the menu. There are also several Mexican inspired items including breakfast street tacos and migas. I also enjoyed the Chieftain’s Revenge with spicy grits and beer-braised pork.
Also look for specialty items such as the breakfast Cuban, chicken fried eggs, the Tuscan Anne Benedict. If you’re in the mood for something sweet you can choose three pancakes from their menu to create your own pancake flight!
If you’re looking for a lighter start to the day Hatch has a lighter section. It includes their bruleed oatmeal and avocado toast. Or, if you arrive later and you’re not in a breakfast mood, Hatch also has lunch items you can choose from including burgers, soups, and salads.

Neighborhood Jam prides themselves on serving American classic dishes with creative twists in a laid-back, modern space. Their menu features specialty dishes like pineapple bourbon pancakes, topped with caramelized Hawaiian pineapple and a pineapple bourbon sauce before being finished with a lemon cream swirl and a drizzle of caramel.
If you’re not craving something sweet you could go for one of the six versions of eggs benedict on their Bennie menu. Options include a crab cake bennie or a Mexican version with corn tortillas layered with green chile pulled pork, poached eggs, and a green chile hollandaise.
My daughter, having a sweet tooth, would surely love their French toast made with Challah bread, banana orange custard, mascarpone, fresh berries and finished with powdered sugar.
I would be more likely to go for the Decadent pig- five pieces of candied bacon meant to be shared, but that’s completely optional of course!
Recovering from a big night out the night before? Maybe check out The Heap: hash browns covered with cheddar, two eggs your way, choice of meat, avocado, pico, cotija cheese, and chives.
If you’re feeling healthy, you can choose from acai and quinoa bowls, oatmeal dishes or homemade granola and yogurt topped with fresh fruit.

Stitch has a bold motto “Intentionally crafted, ethically sourced, sustainably seasonal, but more importantly — damn delicious.” I set out to find out if they could live up to their own hype.
As it turns out, they can.
Stitch was one of my favorite new finds during my recent visit home. In fact, it’s the only place I ate at more than once while I was in town.
The menu features a ton of healthy options that are so delicious you won’t know you’re eating healthy.
Examples include: a chia bowl made with almond milk and topped with granola made in house and seasonal fruit or choose from one of their bagels that they have overnighted daily from NY Bagel Company. Bagel schmears include herb, plain, berry or seasonal schmears. On my next visit I want to try the red pepper and jalapeno bagel with a berry schmear.
My favorite item I tried was the breakfast bowl made with organic roasted sweet potatoes, lemony braised kale, maple bacon, avocado, and topped with a poached egg and sesame seeds.
Of course you can also find the classic avocado toast and a breakfast burrito that sounded tempting as well.
I predict Stitch will be one of my go to during return visits to Oklahoma City.

Before Waffle Champion moved to a brick and mortar store, they served the very best breakfast in Oklahoma City out of a food truck. They were immensely popular and soon became a staple on the OKC breakfast scene. I still remember my daughter and I queueing up for breakfast at their truck many times.
You won’t find your standard breakfast menu here. They serve things like Avocado Toast, Breakfast Tacos, Crab Benedict, and a Chicken & Waffles Sammie that comes with crispy leeks and Tabasco honey.
Although waffles are a regular occurrence on their menu, you’ll find all kinds of other food served there that you can have for brunch, lunch, or whenever you get a craving.

Family owned and operated by the Del Cid family, Café Kacao uses traditional Guatemalan recipes handed down through various generations.
To embrace the culture they came from, they named their restaurant after the cacao (chocolate) bean, which was once used as a form of currency among the Mayan and Aztecs, long before they discovered the rich flavor these beans could provide.
This Oklahoma City breakfast hotspot features a menu full of homestyle Guatemalan favorites and Latin themed cuisine. Ingredients you’ll see used often are black beans and homemade corn tortillas balanced with choices of chorizo, Asada, or Guatemalan sausage.

Recently he fine-tuned the restaurant’s menu (which was only mostly vegetarian) to be completely meat-free, even using milk and dairy alternatives. This has resulted in a nearly vegan culinary experience that has to be tasted to be believed.

The building that Mary Eddy’s Kitchen x Lounge is currently housed in used to be the home of a Ford Motor Company Assembly Plant. When the restaurant was first established, it was named after the wife of Fred Jones. Fred Jones was one of the plant’s first employees and later the plant’s owner.
His wife, Mary Eddy Jones, was a passionate humanitarian. The restaurant owners wished to encapsulate her passion and keep her and her husband’s legacy alive.
Mary Eddy’s is a bit more upscale than some of the restaurants on this list, providing private dining options for special events. No matter how you end up having your breakfast here, you’ll be met with lovely staff, and delicious breakfast options like oats, yogurt, smoothies, breakfast burritos, and more.

During my recent visit home I had the privilege of being invited to stay in one of Oklahoma City’s best hotels- the 21C.
The 21c collection are not only hotels but also double as a contemporary art museum. This makes for a property that is insanely stylish while at the same time upscale and perfectly located in downtown. In fact, several of the restaurants on this list are within walking distance of the hotel!
The rooms are loft like, done in the style of New York’s famed Soho neighborhood. This means you can expect to find high ceilings and large steel windows offering a ton of natural lighting.
The 21c also houses the above mentioned Mary Eddy’s Kitchen x Lounge, one of the best restaurants in Oklahoma City. Mary Eddy’s makes for the perfect place to meet for drinks before or after attending events happening downtown.

Travel writer and owner of the blog. My work has been featured on Fodors, Eater.com, International Living, and Great Escape Publishing, among many others. My story? Nearly six years ago, I left my job at an Oklahoma City law firm and embarked on a journey around the world. At the time, I thought I would only be gone for 6 months, but the more I traveled, the longer my bucket list became. Flashpacker describes how I travel. Rather than traveling as the normal world wise backpacker and staying in hostel dorms, I prefer a more comfortable experience, and typically stay in private rooms, take Ubers instead of taxis, and now use a suitcase instead of a backpack. Foodie, on the other hand, describes one of the key reasons why I travel. I love to pick a central “base camp” and then explore the surrounding area, really immersing myself in the culture and interacting with the people, and enjoying and exploring the food of an area is an essential part of this experience.
