Best Breakfast – Downtown: Atlas Diner

Great news, Downtown folk. The city’s epicenter finally has a super cool diner, where you’ll find eats from warm-spiced Jamaican pancakes with rum syrup, bacon-avocado omelets rolled and layered Japanese-style, hash brown cakes topped with eggs and smothered in gravy and pico de gallo, and “The Sleepwalker,” in which an entire box of cereal and quart of milk are served in a “bowl the size of your head.” The throwback, globally-inspired concept originally came from former Feast chef Richard Knight (where he was first made famous for his nose-to-tail cooking), and it’s now helmed by Knight’s ever-so talented sous chef, Catt Lee (Coltivare, The Pass & Provisions). What hasn’t changed? Breakfast is still served all day long. You’ll find Atlas in the chef-driven food hall concept, Bravery Chef Hall, located in the Aris Market Square.

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

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.
