The 5 Best Brunch Spots in the Heights
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. See the complete list at the end of this post.

This week, we're moving to the antique-shop-lined, bungalow-filled dining mecca that is the Houston Heights.
Note: For the purposes of this list, "the Heights" is defined as south of Loop 610 West, east of North Shepherd, north of the Katy Freeway and west of Airline Drive.
Honorable Mention: Mexican classics at Teotihuacan Mexican Cafe.
5. Zelko Bistro Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Nothing says "lazy Sunday" like a leisurely breakfast in this cozy, charming bungalow. Now tack on a giant plate of chef Jamie Zelko's infamous cereal-crusted Captin's Fried Chicken, shrimp and cheddar grits, and brioche French toast and your lazy Sunday just got a little bit lazier. Nap time, anyone? Just make sure you get us up in time for GoT.
4. Kraftsmen Café Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

If we had it our way, we'd wake up to the scent of freshly baked croissants and pastries every morning. Bring your own bubbly (they'll pop it and provide the OJ carafe for $9) to this calming oasis and feast on breakfast classics like fluffy omelets and thick toast dolloped with jam, honey and butter. We especially love the honey badger, an omelet loaded to the brim with rust-tinged chorizo, zesty Havarti cheese, and diced red onions.
