You'll wish you could have this No. 4 spot's take on a croque-madame every day.
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. We'll be taking a look at some of our favorite spots around town.

Starting with one of our favorite 'hoods, Montrose.

It's important to differentiate from brunch and breakfast. Obviously the late hours turn breakfast into brunch, but so do the cocktails. With that in mind, here are our Best 5 Picks for a Killer Brunch in Montrose:

Honorable Mention: Triniti's luxuriously affordable Sunday brunch.

The best part about brunch? A Juicy Lucy from our No. 5 pick is acceptable fare.
5. Lowbrow Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Newcomer Lowbrow has a weekend brunch that will keep you guessing. Foie gras-topped eggs benny? Okay. Arabic-style deep-fried omelette with crème fraîche and tomato jam. Sure! We'll take all of that and grilled cheese egg-in-the-hole, because this is the coolest place ever!

Wash it all down with $2 mimosas and $6 Bloody Marys because you can, dammit.

4. Eleven XI Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

If you yearn for a first-class brunch on a laid-back porch with live music, Eleven XI is your wish come true. The prosciutto-and-smoked-duck-topped XI Madame had our very own Kaitlin Steinberg swooning, but that's not the only thing we love.

Come for steamed mussels, biscuits and gravy, or our favorite, the citrus-tea-brined fried game hen & herb-infused waffles (dishes range from $9 to $24). Tack on a few brunch cocktails -- like the excellent "Ojo Rojo" ($5), a spicy beer-infused take on a Bloody Mary -- and you have yourself quite the little Sunday.

Totally agree with Hugos and Baba Yegas, but Empire Cafe should be on the list. Numbers 4 and 5 aren't showing up here.

Only in Houston can Hugo's and Barnaby's be on the same list (aside from zip code) and everyone agrees. Houston: something delicious for everyone!

Saturday at baba yega's is just as good, less crowded, and cheaper than Sundays. Always our go to for a quiet brunch after a rough Friday night. Bonus point for the patio and it being right around the corner.

Except for Mother's Day, Hugos Brunch is $40 /person, probably for alot less on the buffet than a regular Sunday....

I like the clean and bright Mexican brunch at Cuchara.

@FRL713

I was very underwhelmed by the cooking at Cuchara; I think Tex Mex holds such sway here, that any alternative is eagerly greeted by the critics. Cuchara is overpriced, a mess to park at now that Max's is next door, and becoming sorta precious with the artsy thang.

@Reinne @FRL713  I don't care for the dinner menu, but we love the 3-course lunches and the brunch menu has some tasty Mexican classics to pair with the excellent drinks.
