Down House Brunch

Alert the masses, this is a new brunch post!!!  When I started this blog I naively thought people would know this blog was not just dedicated to brunch, BUT I realize now, that new brunch spots are what my readers expect, so I shall oblige!  A few weeks back I headed to Down House in the Heights for a Saturday brunch with my sister.  Down House has been on every best of list you can think of and thus ended up on my "places to try list."  Once I heard that Joe Biden swung by there while in town a [...]

Harold’s in the Heights

Forgive me! I created this blog with the hopes of showcasing Houston Brunch spots and I have been blogging about everything but Houston Brunch spots! I am vowing to do better.  Since it is now officially maxi dress and patio season, I plan to be on someone's patio enjoying brunch until the heat becomes unbearable.  The good folks over at Harold's in the Heights invited me to try a dish they featured for National Waffle Day, the chicken and waffle BLT.  I threw on a maxi dress for the occasion, grabbed some sunglasses and headed out for a much needed brunch. [...]

Brooklyn Athletic Club

A good Sunday Funday spot requires a few things.  Drink of course, preferably drink specials too.  Good eats.  A patio so that you can enjoy the sunny Spring weather.  Oh and this all needs to happen during the day, because the Monday morning workday calls :(.   After a few busy months,  my foodie group and I met for a long overdue brunch/relaxed Sunday Funday adventure at the Brooklyn Athletic Club. Location/Setup: Brooklyn Athletic Club is right at Richmond and 59.  The parking situation is a little odd.  For valet, you literally pull up into the restaurant.  I felt like [...]

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, [...]

Bovine & Barley Review

I am so behind on updating my blog with my foodie adventures! My goal is to catch up over the holiday break, so bear with me as I post some things from awhile back.  Several months ago I attended a Houston Food Blogger Collective board meeting at downtown's Bovine & Barley restaurant/bar.  We had the opportunity to sample Bovine & Barley's new brunch menu for dinner and as you know this girl loves brunch! Setup/Location-  Bovine & Barley is off of Main street downtown. When I was in college Main street was briefly the Houston hotspot. From the looks of it [...]

Brunch at Black & White

Last weekend I served as host for my friend who was in town from Kansas City. Before arriving, she told me, "Erika I just want to eat at cool places that I cannot get at home."  And eat we did!  While looking for a Saturday brunch spot to take her to, I caught a picture of Black & White's chicken and waffle's brunch option on Instagram and was immediately sold. Off to Black & White Restaurant we went. The Setup: Black and white are my signature wardrobe colors because you really cannot go wrong with them! Once I learned that the Heights [...]

Check Me Out on Stay.Com!

The good folks over at Stay.Com asked me to create a list of my favorite Houston Brunches for tourists looking for local haunts in my hometown.  The list, entitled "Out for Brunch in Houston," is similar to my own favorite Houston Brunch list that I made earlier this year with a few new additions!  I made sure to include places that were created right here in Houston like Max's Wine Dive.  Max's is now all over the country, but the original is right here on Washington.  Also, I had to add our quintessential Houston breakfast spot, the Breakfast Klub.  Standing [...]

Brunch at Benjy’s

I am back on my brunch kick! A beautiful sunny day in Houston meant I needed to be on someone's patio for a much needed Sunday Funday brunch! My sister, forever with me on these foodie adventures, selected Benjy's in Rice Village.   For the sake of the blog, I am always down for a new brunch spot and Benjy's is generally ranked as a top pick for Houston brunches.  Somehow this was my first time stopping over for Brunch at Benjy's.   I had a great experience so I am sure it will not be my last. No filter just sun! [...]

Punk’s Simple Southern Food

I appreciate brunch, and the many different types of brunch spots that are available here in Houston.  You need goto places for the days that you are feeling fancy and want to dress the part.  You also have to keep a list of places where sweats, no makeup and hair in a bun will not be a faux pas.   A few weeks back, after spending the night turning off weather alerts for an impending flood, my friend and I were in dire need of one of those simple laid back brunch spots.  We decided on Punk's Simple Southern Food.  As a [...]

Quick Post: Tout Suite

As a writer/blogger I make note of cute coffee shops that are great work spaces for the days that I just want to get out of the house. Tout Suite was next up on my list of places to try.  I stopped by during the brunch/lunch hour on a Saturday for a snack and a little writing time.  I pulled up the location via Apple Maps, but it sent me to a Jail/Bail Bondsman a few blocks up on Commerce. I thought it was an odd location for a coffee shop, but I confidently hopped out of my car as [...]
