Etta’s at Bar 5015

So, you may have noticed that I included Etta's at Bar 5015 on my most recent brunch list.   Well here is thing, I actually had not been there yet!  I honestly included it based on reputation and my previous experiences with Etta's!  But I felt like a poser, and that ain't me!  Last weekend, I finally gathered a group and we visited Etta's at Bar 5015 to see what the hype was about. Setup/Location Here is the important thing I want to be clear on, this is a PARTY.  This is not a brunch restaurant where you sip mimosas [...]

Where to Brunch for Easter in Houston

Next Sunday is Easter Sunday, the holiest day of the year for Christians as we celebrate the resurrection!  As a kid I remember getting dolled up in bright spring colors, having my hair straightened and heading to church to celebrate the holiday.  Once at home, our Easter breakfast and subsequent dinner were usually more elaborate than every other Sunday meal, with a ham or roast and desserts.  Now, we the increased popularity of brunch I imagine my mother would have opted for that instead!  It seems to me that a brunch after Easter service goes hand and in hand.  With that [...]

French Riviera Bakery and Cafe

Guesssss what?! I found my very own authentic French cafe, French Rivera Bakery and Cafe, right here in Houston!  Well okay, I did not find it.  Several friends and fellow bloggers had encouraged me to stop by for some true French pastries right in my "backyard."  I finally made it by a few weekends ago for a quick breakfast.  Here is a quick post sharing my experience. The Setup Apparently the current location is an upgrade from a previous spot the restaurant occupied for decades.  The newer digs has it's own parking lot which is great, but let me tell [...]

International Waffle Day – Grand Lux

I live for a food holiday because I am GREAT at celebrating those! This Saturday (March 25th) happens to be International Waffle Day and as you can imagine a brunch connoisseur like myself is excited.  In preparation for Saturday's "holiday",  Grand Lux invited me out to try their chicken and waffle dish assuring me that it rivaled the best in the city.  Check out my review below! Location If you have followed me for awhile you know that I am a self admitted snob who typically frequents local spots.  I will turn my nose up with a quickness at a franchise [...]

Crawl for the Culture

This St. Patrick's day weekend I decided to hop in a time machine and go back to being twenty-one. You know the period of your life where calories do not count, bedtimes do not exist and hangovers are what older folks complain about. Who did I think I was?! At the very least I have fun stories to share with you. Since Friday marked St. Patrick's day and I decided I was twenty-one again, that meant I had to hit the streets!  After a crazy fun night in midtown, I woke up to do it all over again with the Crawl for [...]

The Raven Grill Brunch

My friends introduce me as the girl who has a blog called "Black Girls Who Brunch."  Then they add, "but she NEVER posts about brunch though!"  I of course hit 'em with a serious side-eye and explain that a black girl who brunches is multi-faceted!  I feel the need to say this at the start of every brunch post because I hate to see the "FINALLY" comments from my friends.  So yes, I say all of this to say, I found a new brunch spot that I must share with you guys! Last week, my super talented cousin Kamilah came to [...]

Black Girls Who Brunch: Favorite Houston Brunches

I wrote my first "favorite Houston brunches" way back in May 2015 as one of my first posts on this website.  So much has changed since then and as you can imagine, I have visited a lot more Houston brunch spots.  So now I am back with an update to the list, just in time for the influx of Super Bowl visitors :). Since I am loyal many of the spots are the same since the last list, but I had to add some new favorites.  Just like last time, I am not claiming these are the BEST in Houston.  These [...]

Peli Peli Kitchen

A couple months back I attended a watch party to cheer on the Houston restauranters behind the Peli Peli concept as they competed on CNBC's Restaurant Startup.  Using the Shark Tank format, contestants compete for an investment to start a new restaurant.   During the show, the team presented a fast casual option to their widely successful Peli Peli restaurant.   The team won the competition and began preparing to open their new concept, Peli Peli Kitchen!  In preparation they also hosted a pop up kitchen earlier this summer which I attended and thoroughly enjoyed.  Now as they open the first Peli Peli [...]
