One of the best breakfast restaurants in Sugar Land

If you're tired of your typical Mcdonald's breakfast or of your local Denny's/Ihop, then try Black Walnut. It's much more upscale and has a great variety food and drinks.

My son always orders the John Mac & Lob(ster) and my husband enjoys the Darn Good burger, but I have yet to find something to truly savor. The salads tend to have too much dressing so I have to order that on the side. I do like the Salmon Fillet, but I wish it came with half the orzo and... More

Been going for years. Never had a problem w food or service. Must say I do order the same thing--the black walnut salad, the sundried tomato dressing is delicious. The salad has fresh grilled chicken,chopped walnuts, Granny Smith apple and Gorgonzola (or blue cheese, can't recall at the moment but it's great). My 9 year old asks to come here... More

Loved this place. Hoping they open in Austin soon. It's a self-service place..you place an order at the counter and then they buzz you when it's ready. We had breakfast...yummy french toast, pancakes, Eggs Benedicts, and omelette. Portions were average to big but everything tasted great. Good coffee too (a must for breakfast).

I tried the pavia shrimp alfredo. It was a good portion. The alfredo sauce was so creamy and cheesy. The sautéed vegetables gave it a wonderful flavor. I really enjoyed my meal, not to mention the challah toast on the side. I was hurt after it was gone. My colleague ordered grilled cheese and tomato soup. I mentioned that I... More

Great casual dining available inside or out in trending part of town. Large menu selections which may be a little pricey for lunch, but you get full size serving. Cob salad was simply delicious but the tomatoes were kind of mushy, that's why I rated 4 star and not 5.

This restaurant consistently provides a relaxed dining experience. The staff is friendly and even though it is counter service, they constantly scan for any unwanted plates and glasses. The food is great and they offer so many choices, you can't go wrong with any dishes. I went for happy hour and they offer a specific menu for am and pm... More

Since it was about 5 minutes from our hotel, we made it a point to eat breakfast here for most of our stay. As other reviewers have said, food is ready fast and we tried a variety of meals and each one was tasty. On Wednesday morning we arrived in the middle of their Wed morning happy hour and there...
