I love this place! – I think its interesting that so many people have complained about the waitstaff here... I have been going tot this place for the last couple of years, fairly regularly, and never noticed a problem. In fact, I find the waitstaff to be particularly accomodating, and though I may have asked for more coffee once or twice, the waiters were always great about it. The food is excellent - I can't think of anything there that I don't like. There is something for everyone! Maybe the trick is to go on weekdays... I have never had to wait very long for a table or for anything else. I wish more people had the same great experience I have come to expect! This is definitely one of my favorite breakfast spots in the entire city!
BAD BABY BARNABY SERVICE – At request of my 10year old daughter, we headed to Baby Barnaby's for Sunday breakfast. We went inside to our table and waited and waited and waited...We just wanted a full coffee pot, which is typically on each table. We ordered and then waited and waited and waited..OUR waiter never came back to ask if things or ok, or do you need anymore coffee or anything. I had to ask for more coffee twice...just saying,,he never asked us if we needed anything. After waiting over 30 minutes we got our food. WHICH was excellent. BUT, Expect a serious Wait! The waiters are TERRIBLE. So, guys, if your wondering why no tip, think about it! I do not recommend or intend on returning. I have been to Baby Barnabys many times and the wait staff is getting worse. With all the choices in Houston to eat breakfast. avoid Baby Barnabys!
Pancakes for Breakfast New Concept – Ordering pancakes for breakfast must be new concept They only have one grill. DONT GO HUNGRY. Me and my boyfriend went and its amazing our waitress disappeared in such a tiny place and when she did reappear she was "really great" and telling us that because i ordered waffels and he order pancakes it takes a really long time becuz they only have one grill to cook on. Mind you that the table in front of us had people sitting at it when we ordered eating they managed to eat,pay leave and more people come in order( a group of four)and get their food before we were informed about the grill situation and our faux pas of ordering pancakes. I'm pretty easy going dining out. I waited tables,also. There is no excuse for an hr wait for breakfast. when we explained our displeaser the server she simply dismissed us.
Best Breakfast in Town – For a great breakfast at an affordable price, I would strongly recommend Baby Barnaby's. There is usually a short wait, but it is worth it. The banana walnut pancakes are my favorite, but everything is very good. Try the green eggs if you want something different or you can stick to the usual eggs with toast and a side of bacon.
NICE PLACE – Great place to go and just relax. Plenty of variety and friendly people. Will be going back to visit this local establishment
Eclectic and Excellent – Baby Barnaby's is an outstanding combination of teriffic breakfast food and a really cool atmosphere. No other breakfast place hosts such a diverse crowd of people.
