Houston Brunch: Café Azur

Café Azur is a cute little spot in Montrose I had the pleasure of brunching at this past weekend.

Brunch is pretty much one of my favorite things, and Café Azur did not disappoint. It has the absolute cutest little set up – the kind you want to stay at all day and drink mimosas and snap photos. That can’t be just me that does that, right? 

Though the brunch menu is small, it’s mighty. It’s got classic breakfast/brunch options and then some a little more intense, like a Duck Confit (which I had and loved!) or Ox Cheek, to name a few. Both sound incredibly exotic and adventurous, but both are fittingly perfect for the Houston brunch scene. And both were easily washed down with a few cocktails.

And of course you can’t do brunch without brunch cocktails, which include:

BLOODY MARY

Fresh tomato juice, signature house spice mix and juices, two select vodkas, celery foam 12

FRENCH 75

Hennessy cognac, fresh lemon juice, turbinado sugar, Brut Champagne 14

MIMOSA

Fresh orange juice, champagne 10

BELLINI

Fresh white peach purée, strawberry, champagne 11

Then for dessert, either finish it off with a Crepe Suzette – or another Bellini. I won’t judge – or better yet – go for both! It’s the weekend, so live a little.

Now I can’t wait to check out Cafe Azur for a date night spot. So stay tuned!

Since moving into The Millennium Kirby a few months ago, brunch back “inside the loop” has become my thing again. Oh how I missed it, and how nice it is to live so close to so many of Houston’s best restaurants. SPONSORED
