The Omelettry

American CafeMidtownUnder $10

Before Magnolia Cafe or Kerbey Lane, there was The Omelettry, beloved for its eggs, flapjacks, and home fries. Friends remember Doug Sahm’s irritation that his daily bowl of oatmeal was never ready when he arrived, and you probably still know someone sitting at the counter. But years-old fraternity is not responsible for lines out of the door of real frat kids; that would be the delicious gingerbread pancakes and consistently fresh ingredients. Never fear, if you have already matriculated, there is room for you, too.
