Best Greasy Spoon Houston 2013 - Fountain View Cafe
When a restaurant serves all-day breakfast, you know it's legit. Walk up to the counter at this old-timey cafe and order up a heaping breakfast plate with all the fixin's or, better yet, a build-your-own omelette with fillings like jalapeño, cream cheese and house-made chili. Also a must? A short stack of some of the best pancakes in town. They're pure ecstasy — vanilla-laced, crisp, delicate and smothered in butter. While you wait for your grub, pour yourself another cup of joe and drool over the lunch items on the larger-than-life chalkboard menu. Pastrami melt, fresh-cut fries and coleslaw, anyone? Looks like you'll be coming back soon.
