A Houston Recap: In Food [Part 1]

To say that I gained at least five pounds when I came home from Houston may have been a slight understatement. We didn't do too much besides hang out, eat and watch movies (which is okay by all of us). One thing is for certain about Houston, they've got some awesome restaurants/cafes.

This was pretty much my uniform the entire time we were there; coat, scarf, leggings/jeans & a sweater 
The first place that we went to when we got into Houston was Empire Cafe for some coffee and cake. We hadn't seen each other in a couple weeks, so we wanted to go out and catch up a little bit. It was somewhat of a challenge to find a place so late on a Saturday night, but when we pulled up to Empire Cafe we saw we had at least 30 minutes left and sat down.

Grilled cheese with tomato and pesto from Cafe Brasil
On Sunday, we woke up a little late....and by a little late I mean around noonish. We ate 'breakfast' and then decided to go to the Galleria (my first time) and just walk around and see the sights. It was crazy, and by the time we were done I was more than ready to get out of there. To get a completely different change of scenery we decided to go to Cafe Brasil, which was in a really cute neighborhood. We all ended up getting the same thing (the grilled cheese with pesto and tomatoes) and devoured it within minutes.

Though these are only a few of the places that we ate [I'm getting to the rest], Cafe Brasil probably had to be my favorite, well it tied with Sweet Paris (which I'll tell you about later).

What's  your favorite type of food?
