“The Breakfast and Lunch Joint” has gained quite the reputation for creative (and delicious) dishes from chef Natalie Young. The chef, whose previous struggle with addiction was the focal point of an inspiring American Express commercial during the Super Bowl, serves up some serious breakfast eats to delight the masses. From 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. daily, diners can nosh on cinnamon biscuits topped with a smattering of warm strawberry compote, golden pancakes, huevos motulenos, chicken fried steak and much more. If 11 a.m. is a little too early for you, don’t worry, eggs are served all day!
