True Food Kitchen Brunch

I get SO excited to share new brunch spots on the blog! I know that is what many of you come here looking for so I try to oblige.  Last weekend, I visited True Food Kitchen for an early afternoon Saturday Brunch.  Forget what you thought about this restaurant and get in to this True Food Kitchen Brunch recap! Location For this tasting I trekked out to the Woodlands to take part in their family and friends day before the location’s grand opening.   I gotta say, out of all the Houston suburbs, the Woodlands continues to have restaurants that [...]

Fielding’s Rooster

This location is now closed.  Please visit the other Fielding's Locations in the Woodlands area!    It should be no surprise to anyone reading this that I will travel for a good brunch.   A few weekends ago I hit up Fielding's Rooster way out in the Woodlands with members of Zipkick Houston.  It was a bit of a drive, but within minutes of the tasting I decided it was totally worth it!  While I was there for a brunch, we got to try a variety of items on the menu! Peep the details below for all of the fun. The [...]

Brunch at State Fare

I am embarking on a slow mission to try some new brunch spots so that I can update my brunch faves for 2018! First on the list, a stop over to State Fare.  I have blogged about State Fare in the past, but had yet to try their brunch menu which everyone seems to rave about.  Well add me to the fan club because the Brunch at State Fare is SO good.  Check out all the details below! The Location Since my last visit, State Fare did a pretty extensive remodel.  The color concept changed and barriers were added to [...]

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 [...]
