When it's too late for breakfast and not quite time for lunch, brunch is right on time, and provides a perfect combination of the two. In Houston, brunch is all about serving food that comforts the tummy and the soul. Whether you're catching up with family or kicking off your girl’s day out... no matter the reason, it's always a great excuse to get your brunch on!
Their weekend brunch buffet has been voted one of the best in the city. You name a Tex-Mex item (breakfast, lunch, or dinner) and it's on the buffet. If you are not in the mood for that, they also offer traditional American items as well.
Waffle station, Omelette station, Taco station, Quesadilla's to order, Margarita and Bloody Mary station, and this just scratches the surface.
Chef Hugo Ortega serves up pretty amusing regional Mexican cuisine at his Montrose restaurant. They also host one of the best brunches in the city, with two different brunch options on the weekends. On Saturday's, they offer a menu brunch (with select items) and a special Brunch Buffet on Sundays.
You haven't had quiche until you've tasted the "better than your momma can make" quiche at Shade made with bacon, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and cheddar cheese. You can order it at lunch and during their weekend brunch.
If you love or even just like oysters, you must try the Nacho Mama's Oysters dish. The combination of crispy fried oysters, house-made habanero salsa, garlic aioli, and fresh cilantro on fried wontons takes the oysters to new heights. The favor profile is extremely simplistic, but somehow still manages to have a wow factor. Hey, we are not questioning it nor are we trying to figure it out! All we got are big fat satisfied smiles and a round of please and thank you's that would make us look like major kiss asses.
This Brenner's Steakhouse location sports one of the best patios in Houston. With its breathtaking views and "like no other" ambiance, it sets the tone for a very swanky brunch and is perfect to kick off your girl's day (or night) out.
This is a wonderful little brunch spot. A few of our brunch must-haves are the Cheese Biscuits with Homemade Sausage and Gravy topped with Chives and the Wild Mushroom, Spinach, Leek and Gruyere Quiche. FYI...if you are going to have more than 2 mimosas, it is better to order them by the pitcher and not the glass.
Brasserie 19 is French classism meets modern luxury. This place is a total "seen and be seen" type of spot on most nights. They have great music, a great vibe, and excellent food. A few of our menu favorites are the Smoked Salmon Rillettes, the Dry-Aged Rib Eye, and the Lemon Bavarian.
This Farm to Table restaurant goes beyond just a good meal. One could dine here everyday of the week and get a different meal, because the menu changes daily- yes even the brunch menu is ever-changing. They take local and sustainable to the next level, and we can’t forget they make kick-ass cocktails!
This restaurant-lounge is an electric, contemporary, and modern good time located in SugarLand Town Center.The Euro-Asian menu was created by Chef Jett and Pastry Chef and wife, Jira Hurapan. The food and drinks are stellar; and the Crispy Fish is a must-try.On the weekends they offer and amazing brunch as well!
Union Kitchen is a great spot for brunch, lunch, and dinner. If you are looking for a place that can deliver on the basics and throw in a hidden surprise every now and then, Union Kitchen is a place you may want to check out. The Buttermilk Pancake Entrée (seven Pancakes topped with Berries and Texas Pecans) is a must try!
Love this place for concerts because of the small intimate space. Reminds us of when MTV use to do the unplugged series of concerts and the fans were right there with the performer.
Additionally, make sure you check out their Gospel Brunch on Sundays.
We absolutely love the fact that Benjy's on Washington serves brunch on Saturdays! Benjy's farm to market concept works well with their brunch offerings and includes many of the traditional brunch dishes that are a must have for a Southern style breakfast. With dishes like biscuits and gravy and shrimp omelet’s you won't be disappointed in anything you choose.
Latin Bites offers a buffet brunch where you will find a little bit of everything including fresh fish, various stews, tamales, and even dessert. A la carte items such as freshly prepared eggs (or omelets) and made to order orange and passion fruit mimosas are also available. The Latin band is pretty amazing too!
The Monarch at Hotel Zaza is not only a great place for people watching, but their brunch is amazing. The roomy patio is the perfect place to kick your feet up, enjoy a nice refreshing concoction from the "juice bar", and share a few cocktails with friends. Oh yes...don't forget the Shrimp & Grits; you will thank us later!
Triniti offers an executive lunch and paired with the ambiance that we all wish we could escape to everyday, it is a pretty good deal for $24. This prix fixe lunch offers three courses and you can choose from a selection of options from each category: soup or salad, entree, and dessert.
Pesca World Seafood pays homage to Chef Alberto Alfonzo's love of seafood, and is a culinary walk through his life of traveling to the great coastal cities around the Gulf of Mexico, Texas, Florida, and throughout the Caribbean. You will fall for items like his Pretzel Crab Cakes, the Portuguese Seafood Stew, and the Fish N Chips.
