Allegedly Local Pour has one of the booziest brunches in Houston. Obvi #BrunchKlub went to investigate. And it’s safe to say that after sampling a few of the $6 mimosa carafes–yes I repeat $6 carafe of mimosas–we can confirm that it’s definitely a very boozy brunch and a delightful place to place the It’s Not Hou Brunch Drinking Game.
What’s great about my experience at Local Pour is when I got seated at 11am, the hostess felt the need to remind me that brunch was ending a bit early that day (2pm instead of 3pm). I lolzed at the beginning because I didn’t think a four hour brunch was in my future. But a few carafes later, 1:30pm rolled around sooner than I expected and I realized the Local Pour hostess was much more wise than I had expected. I guess walking in I just had one of those looks….
Interested? We recommend the mango and pineapple carafes–because orange juice is
the new black just so overrated. In addition to the bargain drinks, the brunch entrees are relatively cheap too! Most plates are less than $10. It’s fabulous when you meal+ [multiple] drink total is less than $20. The Eggs Florentine with the breakfast potatoes were delightful and filling, but would probably have been much more enjoyable if they were served hot. Same goes for the St. Arnold Belgian Waffle. (Yes, you heard correct. That would be a waffle made of St. Arnold Brown Ale and topped with homemade pecan butter). The meal took a while to come out–which means we had time to enjoy another carafe–but we were starving when it did and bit miffed when it was luke warm. I guess they were banking on us ordering another carafe so we wouldn’t notice the tepid food….or notice the fact that the sunroom is freezing. But actually, if you have the choice, don’t get seated in there unless you brought your summer parka or plan to order a carafe a piece for the champagne coat.
