Best Brunch in Uptown Houston


When the weekend arrives, you’ve got one thing on your mind: Brunch. This mix of breakfast and lunch is perfect for relaxing with friends and indulging in treats like French Toast and eggs benedict. Whether you prefer mimosas, bloody marys, or fair-trade coffee, here are some of the best places for brunch in Uptown Houston.

Caracol
Get a fresh start to your brunch routine with fresh seafood. Caracol, little sibling to the much-vaunted Hugo’s, specializes in Mexican coastal cuisine, and that means an abundant selection of fish, ceviches, and oysters on-the-half-shell. Saturday brunch is a la carte, and Sunday is buffet day. In addition to seafood, you can also load up on chilaquiles with eggs, migas, huevos a la Mexicana, tostadas, chile rellenos con huevo, and more.


Dish Society
If you like your brunch old-school, then Dish Society is your classroom. They’ve got standards like shrimp and grits, beignets, and a traditional breakfast of three eggs, two pieces of bacon, toast, and fresh fruit. Want some Texas flavor in your brunch? Then get the brisket n’ eggs, a dish of smoked and pulled brisket with tomatillo relish, two sunny-side eggs, smoked gouda grits, and a house buttermilk biscuit.


Peli Peli
Break out of the standard breakfast routine with a visit to Peli Peli. Specializing in South African cuisine, their menu invites you to dig into kitka french toast, chicken schnitzel, and deep fried waffles. Their Filet Medallions and South African Eggs Benedict is a must-try, made with tenderloin, baby spinach, and eggs benedict South African style on an English Muffin and served with red potatoes.

La Table
Day drinking is de rigueur at brunch, which is one of the many reasons to visit La Table. It’s a Parisienne-style cafe that offers your choice mimosas, bellinis, and bloody marys with your buffet. You can indulge in eggs benedict, prepared traditionally; egg white frittatas, a classic Caesar salad, and more.

These are just a few of the many places you can have brunch in Uptown Hosuton. For more delicious ways to begin your weekend mornings, follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
