In Houston, we're pretty serious about our brunch. Whether it be migas and breakfast tacos or chicken and waffles and loaded Bloody Marys, we have no shortage of awesome spots to get our brunch on. We'll be taking a look at some of our favorite spots around town.
Starting with one of our favorite 'hoods, Montrose.
It's important to differentiate from brunch and breakfast. Obviously the late hours turn breakfast into brunch, but so do the cocktails. With that in mind, here are our Best 5 Picks for a Killer Brunch in Montrose:

5. Lowbrow Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Newcomer Lowbrow has a weekend brunch that will keep you guessing. Foie gras-topped eggs benny? Okay. Arabic-style deep-fried omelette with crème fraîche and tomato jam. Sure! We'll take all of that and grilled cheese egg-in-the-hole, because this is the coolest place ever!
Wash it all down with $2 mimosas and $6 Bloody Marys because you can, dammit.
4. Eleven XI Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
If you yearn for a first-class brunch on a laid-back porch with live music, Eleven XI is your wish come true. The prosciutto-and-smoked-duck-topped XI Madame had our very own Kaitlin Steinberg swooning, but that's not the only thing we love.
Come for steamed mussels, biscuits and gravy, or our favorite, the citrus-tea-brined fried game hen & herb-infused waffles (dishes range from $9 to $24). Tack on a few brunch cocktails -- like the excellent "Ojo Rojo" ($5), a spicy beer-infused take on a Bloody Mary -- and you have yourself quite the little Sunday.
