Early birds can find their new favorite spot by visiting OKC’s Gilded Acorn, open seven days a week at 6 a.m inside the historic First National Center. The food and beverage philosophy at this French-style patisserie  is that one should enhance the other, and both should be equally and simply enjoyed. That mission comes to life with the restaurant’s menu, which offers breakfast, salads, sandwiches, soups, coffee and bubbly cocktails. 

For those coming in early, choose from smoked turkey, New York strip or veggie benedicts, or the sockeye lox with cream cheese, cured salmon and pickled red onions. Salad highlights include the roasted beet and spinach, the nicoise shrimp and the Caesar. You can also enjoy ham and cheese or spinach and tomato quiche, a French dip or an egg salad sandwich, alongside butternut squash and tomato basil soup.

Espresso drinks run the gamut, alongside a slew of champagne offerings and craft cocktails. The restaurant also offers high tea – all you have to do is ask!
