This cozy, family-owned breakfast and lunch spot is a favorite of Edmond diners. After devouring its made- from-scratch blueberry waffle, you’ll understand why there’s usually a wait for a table, especially on weekends. You’ll most likely leave planning your next trip, perhaps for lunch, to have one of the burgers and an order of hand-cut curly fries.

This family-owned Oklahoma institution started in Norman in 1977 and opened its Edmond location in 2000.

For an entree, try a house specialty like linguine with chicken and sun-dried tomatoes.

Haiget’s Restaurant introduces guests to the tastes of Kenya and Ethiopia. Offerings from each country are featured in separate menu sections, and the helpful staff will guide you through any questions you might have. To ease into the experience, we recommend the beef stew, a savory yet not-too-spicy dish. Enjoy it with chapati, a chewy Kenyan flat bread.
