Generally, when a restaurant closes, its story is pretty much over. But that just isn’t true for Biskit Junkie, the former Oak Forest breakfast and brunch spot that shuttered in December to make way for a bigger, better location. After just a few months of revamping, the brand new Biskit Junkie is officially serving up its carb-y goodness in Montrose at 403 Westheimer.
Announced via Biskit Junkie’s Facebook page, the casual eatery quietly opened its doors over the weekend. On April 15, Biskit Junkie held a "super soft opening," and officially began service on Sunday afternoon. Comments from the restaurant indicate that the location was planned for a January opening, but no word on what exactly caused the delay.
Notably, the restaurant’s newest location may be joining a slew of new restaurants – like Austin’s La Barbecue – that will not accept cash. A post says that "this location will not accept cash," but it's unclear whether or not that only applies to the soft opening. Eater has reached out to Biskit Junkie for clarification, and will update this post with comment.
Either way, you'll likely need to remember to bring along your credit card if you want to dig into one of those massive breakfast sandwiches, like the Open Face Biskit topped with andouille sausage, buttery grits, and shrimp.
Non-biscuit options include waffles stuffed with fried chicken or fruit, fried catfish and eggs, and a selection of omelets. The concept will also be open for lunch and dinner, serving up hearty mains like chicken fried steak & fish and chips.
Biskit Junkie is closed on Mondays – a real bummer if you find yourself with a craving – but will reopen for business on Tuesday at 9 a.m.
