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. Keeping later hours and killer cocktails in mind, we'll be taking a look at some of our favorite spots around town. See the complete list at the end of this post.
This week, we're moving outside the loop to the ever-expanding Woodlands area.
5. CRÚ Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Only vintage champagne (and not some crappy sparkling wine) will do for the mimosas at this sleek and sultry Market Street wine bar. Oh, and did we mention they can be served bottomless for just $9. For that, we'll forgive this place for being a Dallas import. The elegant dishes -- from pan-seared crab cakes topped with crisp frites and a poached egg to fluffy Belgian waffles smothered with honey and Nutella mascarpone -- don't hurt their cause either.
4. Blue Mug Cafe Saturday and Sunday 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This fast-casual cafe serves breakfast 'til 3 p.m. on weekends, but the real deal here is on Sundays when happy hour runs all day long. That means you can get $12 bottomless mimosas, half-price bottles of wine, $3 drafts, and $5 bloodys, sangrias, and caipirinhas (among other things) alongside solid breakfast and lunch plates.
Grab and menu and order at the counter, then head to the bar to get started on your drinks. Try a triple stack of sweet potato pancakes dolloped with pecan butter and drizzled with maple syrup; get a fluffy three egg omelet just the way you like; or go for a killer French dip smothered with provolone, sweet peppers, and onions and plenty of au jus on the side
