More often than not, people don’t like change – mess with a favorite menu item, and as a restaurant owner, you’re likely to hear about it. Or post a sign with “Under New Management” and wait for the collective groan of dismay.

After being shuttered for months, the owners of Amarillo favorite El Tejavan have rescued a Sixth Street icon long known for its diner-style breakfast. And with a remodeled interior and menu – and a new non-smoking environment – we think there’s a new favorite breakfast contender downtown in the Blue Front Café and Oyster Bar.

We are big fans of the tasty hot cakes and fresh waffles. If a hearty meal is more to your liking, opt for a generously portioned Texas Omelet and a Bloody Mary (served all day). For lunch, make your own burger to order, and hang around for daily Happy Hour specials at the new bar. In the evening, you can’t miss with the delicious and fresh Blue Point oysters served raw or charbroiled with butter and cheese.

801 SW Sixth Ave., 372.0659,

Open Monday through Saturday, 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
