The coffee shop and breakfast spot Dandelion Cafe is beloved by the neighborhood folks in Bellaire. We can’t tell if that’s due to how bright and colorful every square inch of the cafe is, or how ridiculously good the fried chicken and waffle tastes. Probably both. If you want breakfast, Dandelion can set you straight, fill you up, and maybe even make you feel as though you are being lovingly tucked into bed. Try a soft scrambled egg breakfast sandwich on a kaiser roll, chicken chilaquiles, and, of course, the 24-hour marinated fried chicken served over a fluffy cornbread waffle with spicy maple butter. Load up on espresso, juice, or even a few flavored mimosas if that’s how you roll at brunch, or even lunch. Tables stay bustling at Dandelion with folks meeting up for coffee, people taking a quick work lunch, or someone typing away on a laptop, so expect a little wait if you show up on the weekend. Or swing by from 2-4pm on weekdays to nab half price pastries.
