The Weekly Feed – Holiday Breakfast for Out-of-Towners

By on December 14, 2016

Welcome to part one of our “Holiday Out-of-Towners” edition of The Weekly Feed. Many of us will have family in for the holidays and want to take them somewhere delicious to celebrate. Some are here in Tulsa visiting (welcome!) and this list will guide you to some of the best restaurants Tulsa has to offer. For the first round, we’ve put together a fantastic list of just a few (because there are so many!) places for Breakfast and Brunch. With shopping expeditions and holiday party planning, it’s best to start your day with a good breakfast. Here are some of the spots we like to take guests, friends and families to for some eggs-and-bacon-action in Tulsa.

Rise and Shine!
Breakfast can make early mornings tolerable. In this section, we’re talking about early in the morning, cock-a-doodledoo-style breakfasts. Here are some great options for fueling up when you have to get an early start on the day.

The Wild Fork
The breakfast darling of Utica Square is, by far, The Wild Fork. It is the place where early-morning meetings are made tolerable by an imaginative menu, great ingredients and ritzy-yet-relaxed atmosphere.

The Wild Fork
1820 Utica Square
Tulsa, OK 74114

Breakfast Served
Monday – Saturday – 7:00 am – 11:00 am; Sunday – 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Dilly Diner
The Dilly Diner has the heart of a small-town coffee shop diner, but has the sophistication of an upscale bistro. The breakfast menu is full of favorites that get a little oomph, like bananas foster French toast. They also bake their own bread and desserts, so if pastries are your jam for breakfast, look no further.

Dilly Diner
402 E. 2nd St.
Tulsa, OK 74120
Breakfast Served All Day!
Monday- Thursday 7 a.m. – 10 p.m.
Friday-Saturday 7 a.m. – 1 a.m.
Sunday 8 a.m.- 8 p.m.

The Chalkboard
Nestled in The Ambassador hotel, The Chalkboard is a cozy bistro with a full-fledged chef-crafted breakfast menu. This downtown go-to is open more often because of its affiliation with the hotel, which means it is a great option, no matter what time of day, especially during the holidays.

The Chalkboard
1324 S Main St
Tulsa, OK 74119
Breakfast Served
Monday – Saturday 6:30 – 10:30 a.m.; Sunday 7 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Blue Moon Café
From huevos ranchero to delicate pastries, Blue Moon Café is a bright and lovely spot on Brookside for eating the most important meal of the day.

Blue Moon Cafe
3512 S Peoria
Tulsa, OK

Monday – Friday  7 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Saturday  8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Sunday 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The Bramble
The Bramble, the sister restaurant to Tallgrass Prairie Table, has built an almost mythical reputation for breakfast. The Bramble is a farm-to-table joint that focuses on the best ingredients, but their creative recipes make the most of top-notch meats, cheeses and veggies. (Order the khachapuri, unless you are afraid of delicious things.)

The Bramble
311 E 2nd St
Tulsa, OK 74120

Tuesday – Friday 6 a.m. – 2 p.m.; Saturday & Sunday 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Weekend Brunch!

Brunch is a different animal than breakfast. Usually later in the day and specifically on weekends, this is breakfast food at its booziest. Here are some of our favorites for brunching in Tulsa.

Palace Café
The Palace Café is one of Tulsa’s most unique restaurants for lunch and dinner, but on the weekend, they apply the same expertise to their brunch. Upscale yet laid back, the Palace is a great spot to sip on a Bloody Mary and catch up with friends. Brunch served only on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Palace Cafe
1301 E 15th St
Tulsa, OK 74120

R-Bar & Grill
If you like unconventional brunch dishes, like chicken and waffles, then you are going to love R-Bar. Sure, they have breakfast standards, like omelets and bacon, but each week the chef gets to choose a theme for the brunch menu and it’s always fun and delicious. Brunch is served Saturday & Sunday 11 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

R-Bar & Grill
3421 S Peoria Ave
Tulsa, OK 74105

Atlas Grill
Tucked inside the Atlas Life building in downtown Tulsa, it’s like having brunch in a castle. Atlas Grill serves up some stellar brunch dishes along with Bloody Mary’s and mimosas. Brunch served Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The New Atlas Grill
415 S Boston Ave
Tulsa, Oklahoma

LaVilla Restaurant at Philbrook Museum of Art
A great way to begin or end a tour of the museum, La Villa offers standard brunch fare in a bright, airy dining space inside the museum. Brunch served Sunday from 10:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

LaVilla Restaurant
2727 S Rockford Rd
Tulsa, Oklahoma


Chimera hosts Vinyl Brunch, names tacos after Sonic Youth songs and makes one of the most perfect specimens of lattes in Tulsa. This coffee shop also has great selection of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free menu items in addition to their awesome coffees and cocktails. Brunch is served Saturdays 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m and all day Sunday. (They also serve breakfast weekly 7:oo-11:00 a.m.)

212 North Main (Brady District)
Tulsa, Oklahoma
