Amazing Black-Owned Brunch Spots In Texas

Have you ever wondered how brunch came about? According to Culture Trip, brunch was created by Guy Beringer as a method to treat his hangovers. He believed that you should avoid a heavy breakfast, after a night out of drinking, and eat towards the middle of the day instead. In Europe, brunch was also meant to be a sociable event, including more drinks. Which makes sense because in most places in Europe, beer or alcohol is served with every meal. Did someone say bottomless mimosas?! Getting day drunk is my favorite thing to do, so I make it a hobby to try out which restaurants have the best mimosas and brunch. 

As a child, I remember every so often my mom would allow us to eat breakfast for dinner! We’ve always heard breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not have it in the evening also! We’d cook us up some pancakes, sausage, bacon, eggs, and grits and feast! You’re guaranteed a good night’s rest after a meal like that.

If you’re anything like me, indecisive at times, you love to have your OPTIONS! BRUNCH gives you options okay! Breakfast or lunch, pick a side and don’t worry about being judged. Brunch is a mixture of breakfast and lunch that is usually around 10 am to 2 pm, depending on the restaurant. You know everyone has their own style of cooking, so I make a hobby out of trying different places for brunch and comparing who has the best shrimp and grits or chicken and waffles!

Now let’s do it for the culture and introduce these black-owned spots located right in our backyard in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin.

First on the list is one that needs no introduction for our Houstonians, our one and only TasteBar! I have never seen so many chicken and waffle options. Jerk Chicken and Waffles, General Tso’s and Waffles, Chicken Fried Lobster and waffles! Chef Don Bowie’s Taste Bar was inspired by his international travels, presenting us with a creative menu of southern delicacies. 

Next Up is Trez Art and Wine Bar, located in the Heights area of  Houston, Texas. For all my art lovers this is the perfect scene, as Trez advocates and supports local artists, by providing a platform. Now be sure to go online and make reservations ahead of time, and immerse yourselves in a world of art, culture, and of course brunch! Be sure to visit Trez Art & Wine Bar to see upcoming events, weekly features, and Bisong Art Gallery.  

And last but not least, we will head to Dallas, Texas, and introduce the Soiree Coffee Bar. Soiree is a place, as the owners describe it, that continues to share black culture and contributes to black economics. They provide an ambiance of jazz and soul, “believing that music, coffee, and culture brings people from all walks of life together.” Brunch is served every Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm.
