10 Best Brunch Places in Texas

Texas brunch needs to have a number of things. For one, the portions have to be big enough for a Texan. Two, the flavors better be on point and as bold as the Lone Star State. And three, you’d better do justice to the classics, even if you’re putting your own twist on things. You can’t go wrong at these 10 excellent brunch places in Texas. 

Tiny Boxwoods, Multiple locations

Tiny Boxwoods was officially founded in 2007 in Houston but has since grown to encompass a grocery store, a walk-up bakery, and a second restaurant in Austin. Their mission is “to make each and every experience a memorable one,” while offering “elegant service in an inviting atmosphere.” In that, they succeed in spades. Brunch is served on Saturday and Sunday and encompasses their mission at its best. Try the day’s pastry board.

@Nerdvana, Frisco, TX

@Nerdvana.food+spirits takes its inspiration from video game culture, with a menu that reflects their self-proclaimed nerdom and all the awesome that encompasses. Play games or watch gaming streams while you wait for your food (for those that don’t know, gaming streams is like sports for gamers). Stop in for brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. to experience the nerdvana benedict, pig skillet, and, my personal favorite, the Game Over baked biscuits. 

Farley Girls, Grapevine, TX

Farley Girls in Grapevine, Texas offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, and brunch. The brunch menu is served from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sundays, as well as the occasional holiday, and is comprised of your basic egg and potatoes breakfasts along with specials like the hangover helper bowl.

Diners don’t always think Thai food for lunch, but the BKK Thai Kitchen + Bar in Corpus Christi is on their way to changing that. The brunch menu is served Sunday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and includes awesome dishes like scrambled egg rolls, BKK candied bacon, and Thai tea French toast. It’s not to be missed.
