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.

NPR: Massive Mural Of Underwater Sea Life Pops Up In The East End

Tomeka Weatherspoon, Houston Public Media, December 11, 2017 East End community groups and artists gathered to unveil a new large-scale mural. It’s a wall of underwater sea creatures not far from the city docks. “It was a year of planning,” said Veronica Gorczynski of the Greater East End Management District. Her group supports efforts to beautify the area. “We had over 300 people over 2 weekends — that includes a Saturday and a Sunday just cleaning up the site.” “If residents aren’t coming out and walking their neighborhood, we have to ask ourselves why.” said Gorczynski.
