The Five Best Underrated Breakfast Spots (According to You)

This was a tight and contentious race, if e'er I saw one.

Much of the discussion revolved around what is or is not an underrated spot for the most important meal of the day. For example, some of you posited that Down House might be the most underrated because you absolutely love it and fear it doesn't get enough credit, while others argued there's nothing underrated about the beloved Heights restaurant.

De gustibus non est disputandum, eh?

Anyway, after the votes were tallied, we ended up with the closest results we've had yet in one of these polls. In fact, there's a tie for first place between two totally different restaurants. I'm happy to know we're still a super diverse city, Houston, even when it comes to something as simple as breakfast.
