Dates for Bryan and I are sometimes few and far between these days as things are transitioning in our lives, so we take a day date wherever we can get one! We recently made a trip to Houston Press’ Morning After Brunch.

Houston Press Morning After Brunch

I love Houston Press events like Morning After Brunch, Menu of Menu’s, and Tacolandia because you get to try restaurants that you haven’t been to, and gives you great ideas for restaurants you should put into your rotation. Let me tell you, all of the participating restaurants step up their game, and definitely, leave you wanting more. 25 restaurants participated this year, and they did not disappoint. Here were some of the most memorable and some solid spots for brunch and dishes to enjoy.

Snooze A.M. Eatery: OMG! French Toast

Snooze AM Eatery

They call it OMG French Toast for a reason. After my first bite, I absolutely said “Oh, my gosh.” This French toast was sweet, buttery and had a crisp, golden outside, but the best addition was the hint of coconut sprinkled on top. A total breakfast winner.

Cyclone Anaya’s Chilaquiles

Cyclone Anaya's Chiliqules

I love Cyclone Anaya’s Chilaquiles! It was a savory break from what was all around a pretty sweet-centered event. I loved how simple this was. At their regular bunch service, you can get scrambled or fried eggs with tortilla chips topped with sour cream, cheese, red onion, cilantro, and avocado.



Ouise’s Table: Shrimp and Grits

Ouise's Table Shrimp and Grits

Southern staple Ouise’s Table also brought a savory spin to brunch with the ultimate southern breakfast, shrimp and grits. I loved the cheesy grits and the addition of earthy mushrooms to the dish. It’ll make you miss grandma’s cooking.

Osso and Kristalla – Lemon Tart. 

Osso & Kristalla Lemon Tart

Osso and Kristala is one of my favorite restaurants in Houston. It’s in a gorgeous, whimsical space downtown that also feels quite homey. Most of their dishes are large, and in charge, with opportunities for family-style sharing (which I love because I like to eat anything I can). Their Lemon Tart was a lovely brunch pastry. I actually paired mine with a little dry champagne, and I was in heaven.

Koala Kolache: Glazed Donut & Boudin Kolache

Koala Kolache: Glazed Donut & Boudin Kolache

Koala Kolache blew me away! I loved their display, but of course, I was there for the food. I was so excited that they repped the south with their Boudin Kolache, and they have an excellent classic glazed donut – they give the classic kolache places a run for their money. Bryan and I both agreed we would take a trip outside the loop to visit them.

These were some of my favorites from The Houston Press Morning After Brunch. What are the best brunch spots in your rotation?
