The 5 Best Brunch Spots in the East End

Our friends at the Houston Press are at it once again, this time with their take on the 5 best brunch spots in the East End.

Brooke Viggiano shares her thoughts:

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.

Note: For the purposes of this list, the East End is based off of this official map, which roughly places its boundaries at Clinton Drive to the north, I-45 to the south, 610 to the east and parts of 59 to the west.

Honorable Mention: Saturday morning aporreado at Los Corrales.

5. Brady’s Landing Sunday 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

This all-you-can-eat brunch buffet ($31.95 per person) overlooking Houston’s ship channel is often overlooked itself. But with endless complimentary mimosas and every brunch station under the sun — from made-to-order omelets and waffles to freshly made fajitas, gumbo, pasta, and steamed and fried seafood, it shouldn’t be.

4. El Tiempo Cantina Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Come here for plates crammed with fried papitas, refried beans, and El Tiempo’s housemade chewy tortillas alongside Tex-Mex breakfast classics like carne asada, spicy chilaquiles, and smothered enchiladas with huevos your way. There’s even a crepe-style pecan-studded pancake for your sweet tooth — but don’t worry, it’s served with ham steak or one of two spicy sausages, too. Boozy beverages, like tequila in shot or ‘rita form, are only served from 10 a.m. to noon on Sundays, so be sure to come then if you want to get in one last weekend buzz.

Houston's Historic East End Transformation Expands with Mixed-Use Development Called the Mill

Houston's Historic East End Transformation Expands with Mixed-Use Development Called the Mill

Houston’s East End is peppered with fields between former industrial brick buildings, bungalows, recently remodeled parks, farmers markets and new condominiums, but a 6-acre lot stands out. Behind purple fencing, the parcel marks two construction trends spreading across the country: adaptive reuse of buildings and the use of timber in commercial projects. The site at the moment houses a pop-up drive-in movie theater, but Houston developer Triten Real Estate Partners plans to turn the lot into a mixed-use project that is expected to be a critical part of the East End’s ongoing transformation. Called the Mill after a former 1890s-era industrial lumber mill on the site, Triten’s project is expected to be one of Houston's first cross-laminated timber office projects, in addition to restaurant and retail space and a 340-unit apartment complex.
