Brunch at Kitchen 713

Anywho, with my friends in town a brunch was a must!  We stopped at the new Kitchen 713 for a great Sunday Brunch.  Check out my thoughts of Brunch at [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

The Honeymoon Cafe

I finally got to catch up with my original foodie crew for a brunch at the Honeymoon Cafe! I love hanging with these ladies because it is guaranteed to involve great conversation about everything under the sun and of course great food.  There are few people who match my love of eating out, but these ladies do! Enough about my crew though, on this day we had an early birthday celebration for my friend Adrienne.  Birthday girl gets to pick the restaurant and she opted for Honeymoon Cafe for an afternoon brunch.  This was all of our first time visiting [...]

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! [...]

The Morning After – A Brunch Event

Beignets The best way to recover the morning after a fabulous night on the town is to head to brunch with a group of friends.   These brunches usually include a recap of the previous evening's festivities, good food AND mimosas.  The Houston Press took this concept and turned it into a great event, smartly called The Morning After- A Brunch Event!  On October 1st, Houston brunch lovers will be treated to food and cocktails from all the best Houston brunch spots including my all time favorite spot, Max's Wine Dive!  There are other great editions such as [...]

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 [...]

Brunch At Lucille’s

For Father's Day my family and I enjoyed brunch at Lucille's in the Medical District.  I have written about Lucille's before, so I will be brief, but anytime I enjoy a great brunch I feel obligated to share! Since my father is a vegan, picking restaurants that meet his diet can be tricky.   A few months back we had a great lunch at Lucille's primarily because my dad was able to order about ten different things off the menu, all of which were amazing.  It seemed fitting that we take him back there to celebrate him on his special [...]
