I am sure you all can tell I love a good brunch or lunch with a girlfriend(s) and your little one. Not only for the amazing company, the food and atmosphere, but also a chance to get out of the house and feel like a adult. Sofia is such a trooper and I think she loves it just as much as I do; she is such a little mini me. <3
Best Brunch Places to Go in Houston
1. Tiny No.5 – Located right never Rice Village this location is my absolute favorite for a multiple of reasons. The atmosphere, the food, the infamous cookie (they will be opening Milk & Cookies this month) and the fact that it is much bigger and less crowded than Tiny Boxwoods. You can actually bring a stroller and still have room; it is pretty awesome. Also great for pictures, so I love shooting here.
2.Tiny Boxwoods– A sister location to Tiny No. 5, this one has all my favorite things as No. 1 but also includes a wonderful garden to shop from and occasionally they will have movies on the lawn, like Casablanca and It’s a Wonderful Life during the holidays.
3.Tout Suite– Absolutely love the food and the amazing assortment of macaroons that they have available. They don’t have a ramp for the stroller but since Sofia is itching to get out the moment we sit down to eat, I have been just taking her in my arms or in a carrier so it still gives me access to both my hands. lol
4.Sweet Paris Creperie & Cafe– They have two locations, one in Rice Village and one in City Center and is such a great place to relax, eat some amazing (nutella and strawberry) crepes. Whether it be inside with another girlfriend and her little one or right outside, it brings a little hint of Paris to the city.
5.The Kitchen at the Dunlavy– I received went their with a girlfriend of mines and her daughter and it is the most gorgeous restaurant in Houston. You are nicely nestled between the trees with wall to wall glass and gorgeous chandeliers above you; so magical and I can’t imagine how amazing it would like at night under the stars.
6.Local Foods has amazing healthy options for food and is a great place to talk to chit chat and enjoy the day. I normally now go to the one in Rice Village since my sister works around there, so we like to sit outside under the trees and lights and catch up on the day.
7.Ruggles Green– This location in City Center is great because it is right next to the outdoor lawn where you will always see tons of kids play for hours and hours. I can’t wait till Sofia and walk so we can really have some fun. 🙂 They have delicious food and desserts and I always end up leaving stuffed and needed to walk around the stops to walk off my food baby.
8.North Italia– Great food and great prices, but only downside is that if you bring your stroller they will sit you outside. Even when it is hot it still is very comfortable for you and baby since it is under a shaded area and you get a great breeze every once in a while. So if you don’t want to sit outside just bring your baby with the car seat and place them in the seat next to you. 🙂
9. Adair Kitchen-So yummy with tons of healthy options and if you go in the morning they have this amazing monkey bread..you will need it in your life.
10.Dish Society– Amazing farm to market meal options but delicious smoothies that make your mouth water.
I hope you all enjoy my recommendations and head to a few of them soon!! This shoot was actually at my number 1 pick Tiny’s No. 5, and I am sure you can tell it is too stinking cute!!
Happy Brunching! <3
