As the name implies, Neighborhood JAM is all about getting the neighborhood together to converse and enjoy some delicious food.
The laid-back atmosphere makes it the perfect spot for you and your friends to sit back and enjoy a few laughs while enjoying a cup of coffee or a bite to eat.
My favorite cup of Joe to leisurely sip on at Neighborhood JAM is the London Fog. The rich and creamy flavor makes it pair perfectly with just about any menu item.
While the coffee pairs well with most items on the menu, my favorite pairing is with the Avocado Toast.
Whole wheat toast with avocado, tomatoes, two eggs, and topped with an arugula salad with a vinaigrette glaze.

Take a step back from the traditional, Spanish-influenced brunch offers across Tulsa and enjoy a traditional Irish brunch at Kilkenny’s Irish Pub on 15th Street.
Kilkenny’s is a destination for locals and visitors alike as it is ranked one of the nation’s top Irish pubs.
It’s difficult to visit an Irish pub for lunch and not order a traditional Irish breakfast. That is why Kilkenny’s Traditional Irish Breakfast is my go-to brunch menu item.
The plate includes two eggs your style, two bangers (Irish sausages), rashers (Irish bacon), a grilled tomato, mushrooms, Irish baked beans, black pudding, and soda bread. Enjoy your meal with a glass of Irish beer to get the true Irish breakfast feel.

All things bakery is on the menu at Antoinette Baking Co. on Main Street in Tulsa. Stop in and enjoy the smell of the fresh-baked savory bread and pastry items as you sip on a cup of freshly made coffee.
While the bakery is open seven days a week, brunch is restricted to Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 2 pm.
Every item on the brunch menu includes an item from the bakery, making it difficult to only choose one plate.
However, my favorite brunch item is the Herbed Gougere. The savory cream puff is made with fresh herbs and gruyere and filled with scrambled eggs and crispy bacon.

The brunch beverages are a big part of the success of a brunch menu. At Doc’s Wine & Food, they specialize in liquid brunch and offer a Cajun Bloody Mary with jalapeno-black pepper-infused vodka with a cajun-salt rim.
The Cajun Bloody Mary pairs perfectly with the Cajun spiced Chicken & Waffle dish.

Oklahoma-style Mexican brunch is a delicious cultural event you don’t want to skip out on.
At El Rio Verde Restaurant in Tulsa, you will dine in true Mexican-style as you have the opportunity to experience a true cultural brunch.
My favorite breakfast offering at El Rio Verde is the breakfast quesadilla. Choose between chorizo, bacon, chicken, or steak on a warm flour tortilla and stuffed with melted jack cheese, scrambled eggs, salsa, and potatoes.
This dish is the best with a side of hot sauce.

I’m not kidding when I say that SMOKE. Woodfire Grill offers the best brunch menu in all of Tulsa.
The upscale menu and the luxurious atmosphere are only part of what makes this place so special.
There is no better way to start brunch than with a mimosa. Choose between multiple mimosa options or enjoy a slightly different brunch cocktail from the extensive menu. If I were to choose a single item to order, it would be the Migas.
The scrambled eggs with pico de gallo, cheddar cheese, crushed corn tortillas inside a four tortilla and served with potatoes, chipotle salsa, and avocado salsa will take you to heaven on earth.
