Since late 2015, breakfast and coffee enthusiasts across Houston have been anticipating the arrival of Morningstar Coffee & Donuts, a brand new concept from Greenway Coffee and Blacksmith’s David Buehrer. Now, you won’t have to wait much longer as Morningstar plans to kick open the doors this week.

A post to Morningstar’s Instagram account indicates that the restaurant will open on Tuesday, May 10. For the past couple of weeks, Buehrer has been using Instagram to tease dishes that will be featured at Morningstar, and all indicators point to this place being your new favorite breakfast (and lunch) spot.

Alongside Buehrer’s coffee expertise, Blacksmith’s Priscilla Nguyen is in charge of the menu, which features dishes like a crispy rice bowl topped with kibbeh, egg, feta, and pistachio pesto. Pastries from Sam Phan of Donald’s Donuts look equally exciting, including a Sambal-spiked riff on Whataburger’s honey butter chicken biscuit and a fried salted lime and chili pineapple fritter.

Morningstar Coffee & Donuts will open its doors at 4721 N. Main. It will be open from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m., seven days a week.
