Kozy Kitchen’s Gluten-Free Breakfasts Head to Lakewood

The restaurant had to vacate its longtime Knox-Henderson space


Kozy Kitchen, a Knox-Henderson favorite for veggie-obsessed, gluten-friendly fare, will be moving to Lakewood next week after its longtime building was sold.

The eatery is just the latest to be shuffled out of its Knox-Henderson home due to the booming real estate market in the area. Others that got the boot this year include 106-year-old Highland Park Soda Fountain (one of the saddest closures of 2018), Trailercakes, Mesero, and Beauty Bar, which will soon relocate to Deep Ellum.

Kozy Kitchen found a new space at 6400 Gaston Avenue, according to CultureMap, and will fill the hole left most recently by Sugarbacon and Dixie House before that. Kozy Kitchen’s size will double in Lakewood with a 6,000 square-foot space that seats 224 inside and 65 on the patio.

The quaint and cozy BYOB spot on McKinney will transform to a restaurant with a full bar that slings beer, wine, and custom cocktails in Lakewood. Kozy’s menu touting local organic ingredients will largely stay the same. Mainstays of Kozy’s arsenal are giant-portioned plates filled with veggies and a “side” of meat or eggs (for breakfast) instead of the typical American method of filling up on proteins and carbs. The gluten-free crowd will be glad to find the same salads, soups, and giant bowls of gluten-free pasta like grilled chicken penne alfredo and blackened shrimp spaghetti carbonara. Plus, breakfast omelets and tacos will be on deck, and for dessert, nearly a dozen rotating flavors of gluten-free layered cakes, along with cookies and brownies sans gluten.

Kozy Lakewood opens January 1. Stay tuned for hours of operation.
