With an inventive, extensive menu and a put-you-at-ease atmosphere, Black Walnut Cafe emerged in 2002 as a contemporary destination for hungry Houstonians. Since then they have expanded to the Dallas metro area, and a newer location in Atlanta, GA. I absolutely love this place! I have a few requirements for brunch including a menu that has pancakes (preferably) or waffles, and bottomless mimosas. This place does not have bottomless mimosas, but the menu makes up for it and I am always satisfied.
The restaurant has the cafeteria atmosphere. My first time visiting I was completely confused, but caught on quickly. You have the option to come in, and check out the menus. Once you place your order you pick out your own seats, and you are given a buzzer to alert you when your food is ready… No servers here. The silverware and condiments are out in the open, and as a germaphobic I thought I would be uneasy. To my surprise I am not, due to the restaurant always being cleaned to standards.
This is my go to brunch spot, and I it is always the first place I recommend to friends. If you are in the area of a Black Walnut Cafe I strongly encourage you to try it, you will not be disappointed.
