Before breakfast was the first meal of the day, it was part of a midday supermeal—Dinner, Breakfast, Nash & Young. Give breakfast’s solo work its proper respect with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get a breakfast for two at Highland Morning (up to a $36 value). Breakfast for two includes the following:
- Two entrees (up to a $22 value)
- Two sides (up to a $6 value)
- Two coffees or teas or juices (up to an $8 value)
The chefs at Highland Morning craft a menu that centers on down-home comfort cookery. Homemade biscuits arrive smothered in the kitchen's specialty sausage gravy ($5.50), and the baja benedict ($9.50) helps taste buds defect from tradition by parking two eggs atop a plateau of corncakes, chorizo, and avocado, all slathered in a blend of chipotle hollandaise sauce, pico de gallo, and cilantro-lime crema. Fluffier fare comprises the baked quadrants of the menu, with signature creations including Katie’s Leaning Tower of waffles ($8), a turret of crispy belgian waffles mortared by a fusion of hazelnuts and strawberries. The lemon-lover’s dream cakes ($8.50) cater to citrus hankerings by dressing two old-fashioned lemon pancakes in a uniform of vanilla custard and blueberry compote. The King of Memphis toast ($8) pays homage to Elvis Presley's penchant for using thick slices of sourdough bread to wipe the peanut butter, maple syrup, and mashed banana from his glistening brow, and throwing them to his adoring fans. Customers who purchase this Groupon may also enjoy a complimentary, extra-large buttermilk pancake if they redeem their Groupons on Friday or Saturday between 6:30 p.m. and 7 a.m.
Upon entering the eatery, guests become immersed in an elegant café setting complete with black tablecloths, burgundy wood-stained seating, and a noticeable lack of kazoo players. Black-and-white photos adorn minimalist white walls, and silver lamps impart an air of dining within the framework of a classic film. Though this Groupon does not include alcohol, Highland Morning now features a bar including wine, beer, and liquor.
Atop the restaurant, four spotlights illuminate the Highland Morning sign like a painting in a museum. Inside, black-and-white photographs speckle the walls like the dollops of whipped cream that festoon the shop’s waffles. Diners wander in, lured by the front windows, where etched glass spells out “breakfast done right,” even when lightly fogged by the steam from biscuits and gravy and pepper jack–stuffed omelets. Stacked pancakes and waffles lounge in toppings such as Nutella, cinnamon, and maple syrup. After two-handing a half-pound burger, diners retreat to an outdoor table for organic coffee, ready to take on hectic days at the office or chaperone bulls touring fire-truck factories.
