OKG Eat: Fast break

by

comment

Breakfast? Ain’t nobody got time for that! We all are perpetually late to work, and our stomachs suffer the most. But fear not, hungry reader. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and it’s not a giant, glowing “M.” Oklahoma City has plenty of spots from which to grab a quick bite on your way to the office.

Just because the coffee and tea are stylish doesn’t mean they’re slow. All About Cha can stack up your breakfast croissant and have you chowing down on that buttery, flaky treat in no time. Grab a coffee and hit the road ASAP. Or, if you’re the sort with time to spare, it has big pots of flower tea and free Wi-Fi just begging you to slow down, chill out and hang while the other suckers are on their morning commutes.

Patient: I’m hungry, and I walk into this store, and there are all these beautiful donuts just waiting for me.

Dr. Donut: Did you think this was a donut shop? You’re looking for Donut Therapy. Why does this keep happening?

All American Diner

212 S. Air Depot Blvd., Midwest City

Belgian waffle? French toast? What kind of All American Diner is this?! Maybe this restaurant takes a more inclusive view of the world than we thought. One thing is for sure, though: If you’re looking to get your morning off to a great start, it’s hard to go wrong with a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit. It combines all the necessary food groups: buttery, eggy, meaty and delicious. That’s as American as it comes.

Yes, Kitchen No. 324 might be a go-to for a leisurely brunch, with its Prairie Mary drinks and bevy of poached egg delights. But! If you’re looking for a fast breakfast break, there’s a counter full of top-notch pastries aching to be eaten. Most famous, of course, is the Joe-nut — Kitchen’s version of the Cronut — which changes every week. A warning: If your co-workers see it, you’ll be forced to share.

The management at Jimmy’s Roundup Cafe would like to emphasize that while they will “round up” all the ingredients necessary to make you one heck of a breakfast burrito, they are not going to round up your bill. They’ll charge you for the food you order (and taxes) and that’s it. If you want to leave a tip with the money you saved, that’s much obliged, of course. Now get along, little doggie. There’s someone waiting to take that table.

Cube has a novel idea: Call ahead and it will have your food ready for you. And not just food, either: If you need groceries, toiletries or cold and flu medicine and such, it has that, too. So, if you’re trying to get those kids to school, you can get a Breakfast Naanwich, a large coffee and a pregnancy test (or, you know, a bag of gummy Life Savers) without getting out of the car.

A bagel is so much more than a savory donut or a tube of bread. It is the vehicle for all your wildest dreams to come true. Plain? Sure. Garlic? Of course. Everything? Yes. Everything. A bagel that contains every known substance on earth. It’s ama— What? Oh, it’s just a bagel with lots of stuff on it? That’s cool, too. To be honest, the idea of an infinite bagel was starting to freak me out.
