NEW CANEY, Texas—Set your alarm: The Houston area’s best breakfast restaurant is coming to New Caney.

The Toasted Yolk Café, a fast-casual local restaurant chain serving up chef-inspired takes on breakfast and lunch classics, will open its fifth Houston-area location in mid-May in Valley Ranch Town Center at Grand Parkway and Interstate 69.

The first Toasted Yolk Café opened in 2010. Co-founders Chris Milton and Mathew DeMott, two self-described “morning people,” set out to provide a unique breakfast and lunch experience that was far superior to the limited options available to them at the time. The chain quickly grew to four locations on the north side of Houston offering the same menu of fresh, mouth-watering breakfast and lunch items served with an irreverent flair, including the Arnold, the Toasted Yolk’s cheekily elevated version of eggs benedict.

Chris Milton says that the new restaurant will use locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.

“We realized that most of our favorite foods were served before 3 p.m., so we created a restaurant that would serve the best versions of all of them,” says Mr. Milton. “We use only the highest-quality ingredients and we make everything from scratch daily, including our sauces, dressings, and soups of the day. We wanted to provide food so delicious that people come for breakfast and stay for lunch.”

Food-lovers jumped at the chance, further enticed by delectable beverage options from the sumptuous caramel macchiato to the playful cranberry mimosa. Following the successful opening of the New Caney location, the chain has three more Houston-area restaurants in the works.
