Where to Brunch in Sugar Land
- Churrascos – This fan-favorite offers a Latin brunch buffet every weekend. Fill up on plantain chips and dips, peel-and-eat shrimp campechana, ceviche, empanadas, avocado toast, smoked salmon, carnitas, pastas, whole-roasted pig, build-your-own omelettes, and crepes and waffles. Just make sure to save room for dessert, from tres leches to flan de queso. Saturday and Sunday 10:30am to 3pm. Click here for directions.
- Guru Burgers & Crepes – Guru’s all-day crepe menu means you can “brunch” any day, any time. Get the crepes sweet—filled with everything from mascarpone and berries to creamy peanut butter, banana and honey—or savory, with fillings including grilled shrimp with chipotle sauce and ham, mozzarella and scrambled egg. Feeling a burger? The lineup is all-encompassing. Try the Ukulele, with Texas Akaushi beef, Swiss cheese, pecan-smoked ham, pineapple, and a fried egg; the Fig Newton, with goat cheese and homemade fig spread; or the Captain Planet, a black bean and quinoa burger with provolone, avocado, and spinach. Craft beer and wines by the glass and bottle round things out quite nicely. Saturday and Sunday opens at 11am. Click here for directions.
- Jupiter Pizza & Waffles – A sister restaurant to Guru, this Town Square hotspot substitutes burgers and crepes for pizza and waffles. Start with some “wafflettes”—mini chicken bites and Belgian waffle triangles topped with housemade maple cream and strawberries—for the table; then dig into a lineup of sweet and savory treats. There are omelettes, French toasts, loaded pizzas, and breakfast skillets, which come packed with things like pulled pork and caramelized onions or chicken-apple sausage and country gravy; and then there are the waffles. Get them topped simply with maple syrup and powdered sugar, or go for the gold with toppings like prosciutto and eggs, buffalo chicken, or all the makings of a s’more. Saturday and Sunday opens at 10am. Click here for directions.
- Mia Bella Trattoria – Enjoy a relaxing Italian-style brunch, with specialties including Italian sausage frittata, smoked salmon eggs benny, and traditional ricotta pancakes, sitting pretty with maple syrup, bananas, strawberries, walnuts, and a dollop of ricotta cheese and whipped cream. The menu also features antipasto, fresh salads and soups, build-your-own pasta and risotto, and Italian classics like chicken marsala and margherita pizza. Tack on cappuccino, house sangria or a Bloody Mary. Saturday and Sunday 10am to 3pm. Click here for directions.
- The Rouxpour – Every Sunday, this soulful haunt throws down with a jazz brunch, featuring live New Orleans jazz and jump blues, a Creole-inspired breakfast and lunch buffet, and flowing mimosas. Cost is $35.99 per adult and $6.99 per child 12 and under. Sunday 10:30am to 2pm. Click here for directions.
- Other great options – Hit Carmelo’s Mexican Grill for all-day breakfast, from migas con huevo and chilaquiles to grande breakfast burritos and chorizo-stuffed tacos; and look out for a soon-to-come brunch at Bacon Bros. Public House (the eatery plans to add brunch in the near future at the time of publication).
