324 Reasons to Love Kitchen 324
If you’re scrolling through Yelp to find a great place to eat in the metro, we can bet that Kitchen 324 is at the top of the list. Kitchen 324 is an industrial café and bakery that prepares elevated comfort fare & artisanal sweets. Their employees begin punching the clock at 4 a.m. every day to bring you rustic classics made into fresh favorites. While dining, you’ll notice their aesthetic is just as fresh as their food. The space’s large, street-level windows tell a story. Looking in, you see a clean, open space that welcomes you in with fresh, authentic food and drinks. Looking out, you see the city – where old meets new.
Their historical brick and limestone building, once home to an airline company, was built in 1923, around the same time the original streetcars were hitting OKC avenues. In the days before well-paved streets and automobile ownership were standard, electric streetcars were common in American cities, and OKC was no exception. Since the streetcar was the primary means of transportation for many, it helped shaped the development of the urban core, much like OKC’s modern-day transit-oriented development. Nearly 100 years later, the OKC Streetcar and Kitchen 324 still go hand-in-hand.
Kitchen 324 is all about providing neighborhood-fresh choices and authentic hospitality. They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and have a vast menu of cocktails, curated coffee and grab-and-go snacks. With a menu of comfort food classics with an upscale twist, try the fried green tomato benedict for brunch, an Instagram-worthy fried chicken pot pie for dinner and a banana pudding poke cake when you’re craving dessert. Drop in for coffee in the morning or end the day with a drink at the bar – Kitchen 324 has it all.
Now, Kitchen 324 isn’t perfect. If it was, it would be next door to your house – but it is just a streetcar stop away in the heart of downtown OKC at 324 N. Robinson Ave. With three convenient streetcar platforms, you’ve got easy access to this OKC gem:
- Memorial Museum Stop (503 N Robinson Ave.)
- Business District Stop (203 N Robinson Ave.)
- Federal Courthouse Stop (420 N Hudson Ave.)
Hop on board the OKC Streetcar and head to the business district to experience the fresh finds and clean aesthetic this well-loved restaurant has to offer – you’re welcome in the Kitchen, and on the streetcar, anytime.
