Jump-start Your Day at Black Walnut Cafe

Bacon. Cheeseburger. Benedict. 

Black Walnut Cafe has made a rapid entrance into the Metroplex over the last couple of years, and one thing I love about it, beyond their endless choices and fast service, is that they regularly refresh their menu items to introduce new and different dishes. The latest menu edition introduces a few new brunch items, some Asian influence, burger updates, plus more.

Black Walnut Cafe originated in Houston in 2002 as a "contemporary destination for hungry Houstonians", and as you might've noticed, they've since expanded across Texas and even into Georgia.

Their chef-driven recipes coupled with quick counter service is apparently a winning team! If you prefer full service, as I do on most occasions, you can always belly up to the bar for your meal and go the old-fashioned route for your ordering/dining experience.

The extensive menu gives you plenty of reasons to choose Black Walnut Cafe. Beyond the efficiency and freshness, the classic and other unique choices are sure to please even the pickiest person at your table.

From breakfast served until 11am M-F to their extended brunch hours on Saturday and Sunday (until 4pm!) Black Walnut is a primo brunch location. Brilliant benedicts are a highlight of the menu. One of their "favorite" Benedicts has a creative twist: the "Bacon Cheeseburger Benedict" (shown in feature photo) features two mini beef patties atop a toasted English muffin, with extra large poached eggs, American cheese, diced bacon, and a tasty cayenne-citrus Hollandaise. Traditionalists might also enjoy the Smoked Salmon Benedict, while the Farmer Bob calls out to me with its chicken fried steak, and the Lobster version because, lobster.

You can also munch on classic eggs and bacon, pancakes, chicken & waffles, or omelets on the breakfast side of things.
Asian Chicken Nachos (must have)

But even if you're in the mood for lunch, or visiting at dinnertime, you'll still find loads of tempting options at Black Walnut. Don't miss their new Asian Chicken Nachos which come served on wontons crisps instead of tortilla chips. Drizzled with Asian barbecue sauce atop crisps covered with grilled chicken, roasted corn, black beans, jalapeƱos, American cheese Pavia blend and sour cream, these nachos are my new favorite thing on the menu. Coincidentally, my old favorite menu item has been removed (The John Mac N Lob Pasta!), but I'm hoping to send an email begging management to bring it back, at least for a limited time. :)

Blackened Salmon Risotto

Other new menu items on the all day dining menu include Tuna Tacos, a Chilled Shrimp Gazpacho, Blackened Salmon Risotto, American Burger, and an "All Hands on Deck" chicken sandwich. With choices like these, it'd be easy to return weekly and try something new each time.

I couldn't say goodbye without mentioning the gelato and other desserts at BWC! See below for a peek at their gelato counter, located at the bar, next to their other dessert options. It's easy to pop in for dessert and coffee to catch up with an old friend, or to get your fill of their other fresh grub at Black Walnut. But why not enjoy all three?
