They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So why not have it for dinner? Whether you skipped it and want to make up for your loss or are just in the mood to have two breakfasts in one day (no judgement), we've put together a list of Houston’s most excellent eateries to have eggs and pancakes after 5 p.m. Then we gave each spot a special Breakfast Award because we're fun like that. Check them out:
Best Texas-Style Plates: Buffalo Grille, 4080 Bissonnet; 1301 S. Voss
When you can get it: Tues. – Sat. until 9pm
This Western-themed neighborhood grill has two locations, which means you have double the chance to stuff your face with an awesome Lone Star worthy after hours breakfast. The menu is packed with Mexican and Southern-style breakfaststuffs, from huevos rellenos and colossal sausage-egg burritos to hotcakes, cheesy grits and pecan-smoked bacon.
Best Breakfast With Dessert: House of Pies, 3112 Kirby
When you can get it: 24/7
You can get fresh ground coffee, fresh squeezed OJ, and all of your Texas-sized morning favorites ALL NIGHT LONG. Get a classic breakfast plate with cottage fries and a buttermilk biscuit; the addicting breakfast quesadillas dubbed “eggsadillas”; or a big and beefy ribeye steak & eggs. Whatever you do, don’t forget to save room for a heavenly slice of Bayou Goo.
Why not enjoy Breakfast n' Punch instead?

Best Breakfast To Drink With: Natachee’s Supper ‘n Punch, 3622 Main
When you can get it: Mon. – Wed. until 9 p.m.; Thurs. – Sat. until 10 p.m.; Sun. until 8 p.m.
Forget Supper ‘n Punch. Head here for Breakfast ‘n Punch, where you can booze up while you take down overloaded omelets, huevos rancheros, and a cream-gravy-slathered CFS served with all the appropriate breakfast fixin’s. The laundry list of stiff, Southern-style punches is just as enticing as the all-day breakfast itself.
Best Deli Classics: Katz’s Deli & Bar, 616 Westheimer
When you can get it: 24/7
Corned beef hash, scrambled eggs and lox, and smothered blueberry blintze better than your bubbe made are alllllllllllll on the menu at this 24/7 delicatessen. Warning: the portions are no joke huge, but you’ll probably want to wash it all down with a rich and classic Brooklyn-style egg cream anyway.
These cakes & wings are incredible no matter the time of day (or night).

Best Late Night Brunch: Max’s Wine Dive, 4720 Washington
When: Fri. & Sat. 11:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.
If brunch is the new breakfast, late night brunch is certainly the new dinner. Night owls can hit the Washington Ave location to fill up on Jakes Cakes & Wings – that’s 3 seriously good fried chicken wings atop 3 also excellent corn-jalapeño cornbread griddle cakes with maple syrup – and thick-sliced Crème Brûlée French Toast. But if you want to eat at a “normal” hour, you can get the bigger-than-your-face Fried Egg Sandwich, available during dinner service at both locations.
