A.M. Eatery, Snooze, Makes Its Way To Houston

Located on Montrose Blvd., Snooze: an A.M. Eatery is changing its patrons' outlook on life, one morning at a time through culinary creativity and hospitable service from Snoozers (aka the employees). Snooze's menu offers fresh ingredients for breakfast and lunch from local farms like Urban Harvest and Brighter Bites, and its assortment will not leave you catching zzz's.

Not only is Snooze kid-friendly, but kids are more than welcome at Snooze. Snooze has partnered with Heroes for Children in order to make a difference in the lives of families who have been effected by cancer. In order to maintain endorphins, activities like Connect Four and hoola hoops are found on tables and strewn about outside the entrance for little kids (and big kids, too) to enjoy while waiting for their table.

After indulging in the fun outdoor activities, a Snoozer walked me to my table. Nose overflowing with an abundance of buttery smells, my stomach grumbled as I overlooked the menu. Some dishes that caught my eye were the breakfast pot pie, caprese Benedict, the B.E.A.T. sandwich, pineapple upside down pancakes (a Snoozer claims they, "changed her life!"), drunk'n monkey French toast, and Snooze continental.

Telling myself I would be happier and proud of myself if I select the healthier option, I ordered the Snooze continental, while my more adventurous eating buddy decided on drunk'n monkey French toast. I would recommend both dishes to anyone, at any time of the day.

The Snooze continental came with Greek yogurt with house-made granola and agave, in addition to a sugary grapefruit bruleé, and wheat toast with tangy jam. The drunk'n monkey French toast was unlike any dish I have ever tasted; the custard dipped banana bread topped with rum toffee sauce was too savory for words to explain, and it was topped off with a bruleed banana to boot.

Licking my lips with a satisfying grin on my face, I knew Snooze's mantra had hit home: "it only takes a moment to make a difference." I was full of energy and ready to tackle all obstacles that would come my way and get as much work finished as possible. Snooze's ecstatic Snoozers are welcoming, warm, and friendly to the bone, and I wouldn't want to spend breakfast any other way.
