Best Breakfast: Atlas Diner

Located in the super cool Bravery Chef Hall in Downtown’s Aris Market Square, this 1940s-style, globally inspired diner concept was originally the brainchild of highly revered chef Richard Knight (you may remember him from his excellent work at nose-to-tail spot Feast and Hunky Dory). As Knight snagged a gig that would lead to more time with family (don’t worry, he’s still involved and may pop up at BCH every now and then), his sous chef Catt Lee (Coltivare, The Pass & Provisions) has masterfully taken over the reins.

The nostalgic concept proves to have serious chops, even at breakfast, which the casual spot happens to serve all day long. Beginning at 7:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. Friday through Sunday, hit it to feast on old-fashioned blueberry pancakes; ham, egg and cheese croissants; hash brown gravy cakes; rolled Japanese-style omelets and “The Sleepwalker,” a whole box of cereal served in a “bowl the size of your head.”

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
