Brunch and Football!

The calendar says it is fall, yet Houston temperatures say otherwise! Despite our fall weather challenges there are a few other signs that fall is upon us, including football!  Eventually the weather will cooperate and when it does, two of the greatest Sunday events converge to create the ultimate Sunday Funday!  Brunch and Football! So here is how I made this list.   There are plenty of brunch spots around town, but many of them do not have ample televisions to really enjoy all of the Sunday NFL games.   On the other end, many sports bars lack dedicated brunch [...]

It’s Not Delivery, It’s Brunch at Home!

So technically it IS delivery, but I loved this title so I had to go with it!  Brunch is very much a social experience. You grab your crew and catch up on the good gossip around a carafe of mimosas.  I completely get that, but some days I just want the food without the fluff.   Basically send me the chicken and waffles to my door, so I do not have to don makeup and a cute outfit!  For me, during the weekend when I am working my to 5-9 (i.e. this blog) having brunch delivered is THE best thing! [...]

Breakfast Brunch Cafe in Cypress

Yes, you read that right, Breakfast Brunch Cafe IN "Cypress."  I actually ventured past the loop to try a brunch/breakfast spot out in the suburb.   Of course there is a backstory!  So I grew up in Cypress which is partly why I have a love/hate relationship with it.  My parents still love it and as retirees spend much of their time trying new spots.  A couple of months ago my parents RAVED to me about a new black owned breakfast spot out by them.   "Oh you must try it!" they told me.  My response of course was, I [...]

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, "Black Girls Who Brunch: Favorite Houston Brunches" 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 [...]

The Morning After Brunch Event Review

I had the pleasure of attending the inaugural Morning After Brunch event hosted by Houston Press!  This event allowed attendees to sample the top brunch spots in the city in one venue.  Talk about convenient!  I scored VIP tickets which allowed me early entry.  With no lines I meandered through the different booths, took great pictures and decided on my favorite, all before the general admission folks entered.  The line curved around the parking lot and once they opened the flood gates, I kicked back in the VIP section.   In short, invest in VIP tickets.  For all of the [...]

Fleming’s Sonoma Sunday Brunch

Time for another brunch post! The staff of Flemings invited me to try their Sonoma Sunday brunch at the Woodlands location. Per usual, I brought my sister along for the ride!  Check out our experience at Flemings Sonoma Sunday Brunch below! Location: I rail on the Houston suburbs but I shall give credit where credit is due, the Woodlands has one of the better food scenes in the Houston area. One of my complaints about the Woodlands is the distance, goodness it is far!  Then when I get there I do a Mary Tyler Moore spin and hat toss!  It's beautiful! [...]

Snooze AM Eatery

Houston officially joined the cool kids i.e. Austin with the opening of our very own Snooze AM Eatery!! Snooze AM Eatery is a diner featuring all of your favorite American breakfast dishes with unique spins. The Houston location opened last week, but I was one of the lucky ones invited out to try Snooze during their soft opening.  Check out my experience below! Location/ Setup: Snooze AM Eatery honestly could not have picked a better location.  Located on Montrose and Westheimer, it's a hop away from Washington and Midtown hot spots, for the after club crowd.  Plus it's right in the [...]

Black Walnut Cafe

Here is a short post about a recent trip I made to Black Walnut Cafe on Memorial! Location/Setup: Black Walnut Cafe has several locations in the Houston area. I have visited the Rice Village location, but on this day I stopped by the location right off of Memorial.  I drive by this one pretty often and it is packed all day everyday!  Black Walnut is a casual cafe setup.  Once you walk in, you stand in line and order then proceed to a table of your choice.  This setup works perfectly if you need a quick breakfast.  On this day, [...]

Dish Society Brunch

As you may have already gathered, I like brunch! So when a few of my former co-workers suggested we get together for a much needed reunion, brunch was my suggestion.  We settled on Dish Society in the Galleria area (there is also a Katy location), because I kept seeing it popping up on Best of Houston lists so I figured it was worth I try. Drinks Unfortunately, I did not partake in the mimosas this go around, but by glancing at the menu it seems like they offer more variety than your typical champagne and orange juice.  They even had [...]

Top Houston Brunch Spots

It bears repeating that I just love eating out, that includes, breakfast, brunch, lunch, happy hour dinner, dessert. But brunch, it holds a special place in my food loving heart. A good brunch has the right element of haughtiness to quell the inner bougey black girl who resides in all of us. It’s a menu that includes breakfast and lunch items, so no matter what you are feeling it’s got you covered. It goes till about 2 or 3pm so even though you just rolled out of bed at 1:30pm after a night of drinking and partying you can still [...]
