Breakfast…the most important meal of the day(or so mom said). It’s the meal you get to eat like a king and overindulge in carbs because you have all day to burn off the calories. Yes…that meal. You won’t find IHOP or Waffle House on this list – we went where the locals go. Here are 15 amazing breakfast spots in Oklahoma that will start your day with a smile. (Not in any particular order.)
1. Granny's Kitchen: Stillwater
Fantastic, homemade cinnamon rolls are just one of the yummy homemade breakfast foods at Granny's that'll keep you coming back. It's great home-cooked style food that tastes absolutely delicious!
2. Jenks Restaurant: Jenks
For the best omelette around, stop into Jenks Restaurant & Amazing Clocks and enjoy a morning filled with nostalgia, coffee and clocks.
3. Waffle Champion: Oklahoma City
A gourmet sandwich shop that happens to serve their sandwiches on the best waffles you've ever eaten. You will also want to try some of their house sweets: homemade lemon curd, fresh berries, graham cracker crumble, and perfect velvety whip cream on a classic buttermilk waffle.
4. Hugo's Family Restaurant: Claremore
For bacon and ham lovers, Hugo's is paradise. You'll love the generous portion sizes, so make sure you go hungry!
5. Country Kitchen Restaurant: Ponca City
Country Kitchen serves a good small town breakfast. We recommend the light, fluffy pancakes or delicious ham and cheese omelet. Enjoy delicious home cooking without the mess.
