The Brunch Off- Taste of the NFL

Right before Christmas, I attended a super fun event at Third Coast Houston!  The event, "The Brunch Off"  was a preview to the Taste of the NFL event which is set to be hosted during Super Bowl week here in Houston.  Enjoy the Brunch Off-Taste of the NFL post, recapping the event and providing a few details of the upcoming Taste of the NFL! The Brunch Off Event As the Texans took on the Jacksonville Jaguars, our Brunch Off featured chefs from Houston and Jacksonville offering up their best brunch dishes for us to dine on while watching the game!

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 [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]
