Best Breakfast – Montrose: Blacksmith

Coffee shops are often known to have good pastries in the morning, but this local café takes things to the next level. While you get your caffeine fix via expertly crafted lattes, macchiatos and flat whites, you can also satisfy your morning cravings with a superlative roster of breakfast options. We’re talking scratch-made breakfast biscuits loaded with yolky eggs, house-made sausage patties and melted cheddar; beautiful Greek-style yogurt and toasted granola bowls; colossal croissants, buttery and perfect, alongside crème fraîche and jam; and the cult favorite Vietnamese steak and eggs dish that'll have you coming back for more. The haunt is open daily from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

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.
