The 5 Best Brunch Spots in Washington Corridor

Get fried chicken and champagne at our No. 1 pick.
1. Max's Wine Dive Friday and Sat 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Max's Wine Dive has Friday brunch. We repeat, Max's Wine Dive. Friday brunch.

It truly is a beautiful thing when you can start your weekend a day early. Especially when it's with what is one of the most awesomely crafted brunch menus in Houston. We can't get enough of their infamous truffled fried egg sandwich, decadent banana nutella crepes, or our favorite, the "Jake's Cakes And Wings." The three golden and griddled corncakes are studded with bits of corn and jalapeños and served with masterfully fried, buttermilk-soaked chicken wings and a saucer of maple syrup. It just doesn't get better. That is, until you add on a $25 bottle of champagne alongside carafes of orange or grapefruit juice.

It's a shame that a good brunch for two people can't be had for under $50. Oh you know of a place? Reply and let me know!

Screw brunch and go to taqueria Laredo.. MMMM...


El Tiempo does a solid brunch.


@erichenao if you'r not drinking a lot, pretty much anywhere, but if you are both macondo latin bistro and kraftsman cafe and let you bring your own champs which could help to keep the cost down, they'll give you a carafe of juice and glasses. It's a $4 corking fee at Macondo. $9 including juice + $1/glass at kraftsmen. Both are awesome and not too far from Washington if you were looking in the area. 

A lot of places also have $1 mimosas, Local Pour, Gloria's, Blackfinn, $2 at Lowbrow, $2 at J. Blacks.
