Super spot for breakfast/brunch/lunch & a view!

Runway is a great, local spot to catch a nice meal. With the feel of a diner, prices are reasonable, and the food is good. Nothing can compare, however, to the floor to ceiling windows looking directly out onto the airstrip of Wiley Post Airport, among the busiest airports in the nation for... read more

After oversleeping and missing church, my husband and I opted to go to the Runway Café at Wiley Post Airport. We had heard from a number of our friends that it was the place to go for breakfast, especially in the weekend. We have eaten there before, and had very satisfying experiences, but not for breakfast. First, the coffee is... More

Best, most entertaining breakfast in town. Get a runway-side seat and watch the planes come and go as folks fly in for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Service is good ol' cafe style with friendly owner and friendly waitresses, attentive enough without being a bother.

Runway cafe offers a hardy breakfast and burgers. Watching the small planes take off and land outside the windows makes it a unique place to share a meal.

Nothing can compare, however, to the floor to ceiling windows looking directly out onto the airstrip of Wiley Post Airport, among the busiest airports in the nation for private fbo and business travel. Great spot!

Runway Cafe offers a great view of the runway at Wiley Post Airport. It's in the terminal, where you're surrounded by aviation history, but offers plenty of space. There's even a separate area for private meetings or family get-togethers. The food is great! My favorite meal is brunch. Service is friendly and excellent.

We had brunch at the Runway Cafe (located at Wiley Post Airport) after church. The are well known for their omelettes which are baked in the oven which makes them a bit different - but tasty. They have a wide selection of omelettes to chose from and of course all the regular breakfast dishes. They also offer Oreo pancakes which... More

They have the best grilled omellets ever. Steak and eggs is also good. We eat breakfast here regularly. Have never been here for lunch or dinner, but it is the best secret around when it comes to breakfast. Lots of food and great price. Keep up the great work.

Its a diner, food hot, filling and tasty. The fun is watching the small planes take off and land at the airport up and close. The prices are also good value for what you get. We enjoyed the breakfast and it's not a chain
