Driving from Texas to Kansas is definitely a long haul, but thankfully, Oklahoma City sits smack in the middle, offering great opportunities to split the trip into two manageable days of driving. If you happen to be in OKC looking for a great brunch spot, The Jones Assembly is the place to go. Here you find a fantastic, creative menu and one of the coolest repurposed industrial venues I’ve ever dined in.

The massive two-story dining room and bar is flooded with light from both sides, looking out into the courtyard, where more seating and heaters are located. The upstairs can also be rented for private events, and houses a second cocktail bar, as well as an outdoor patio. The whole venue combines mid-century inspired furnishings, with warm, contemporary wood tones, for an upscale but laid back atmosphere.

If you’re like me and have to try biscuits wherever there are biscuits…. get the Scratch Biscuits here. Butter served alongside them is gooey and delicious honey butter with an added nutmeg and cinnamon topping. Add seasonal house-made jam to the mix, and you’re in for a truly amazing appetizer.

From the brunch menu, a Savory Ricotta Hot Cake is irresistible. Crunchy Nashville hot chicken, habanero creamed corn, hot honey, honey butter, and chives come together in a cast iron skillet. If you’re a fan of rich flavors, I highly recommend this, as it also comes drizzled in syrup, with a glob of butter and a healthy sprinkling of powdered sugar across the top. Though you may want to plan a nap for the afternoon, this is a brunch special not to miss. 

At the other end of the spectrum, if you’re feeling a little “less is more,” The Jones Assembly offers a delicious, fruit-filled Smoothie Bowl. A fresh swirl of kale, avocado, coconut/banana yogurt, and spirulina is topped with agave, lemon, granola, berries, chia seeds, and coconut flakes. Packed with nuts and grains, this bowl is perfectly filling for a lighter appetite, while still offering a great balance of flavor. The smoothie blend is refreshing and cool, and topped with chia seeds for that extra boost of energy.

I will definitely be returning to this new, contemporary eatery to give more of its dishes a taste. Whether you’re planning a Sunday morning brunch or a Friday night dinner date, The Jones Assembly offers options for everyone.
