Fountain View Cafe
When it comes to breakfast, familiar beats fancy. Steve Drayer’s small diner in Houston’s condo-rich Tanglewood-Briar Grove neighborhood lives and serves by this mantra. “Our breakfast menu is plain and simple,” he says. “But it’s enough that I see some regulars four or five times a week.” The cafe posts its build-your-own menu on a chalkboard—made-to-order omelets and Swedish-style pancakes win praise. Perhaps what keeps the place full, more than 25 years after opening, is that the list doesn’t change much.
