 Where to Brunch in Sugar Land

  • 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 and Belgian waffle bites 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 9am. Click here for directions.
  • The Rouxpour This soulful haunt throws down with a Creole-inspired brunch every weekend. Feast on Fried Chicken & Pain Perdu, Three Napkin Waffles with tasso ham gravy and eggs, and Hangover Bayou Burgers stacked with blackened shrimp, potato cake, bacon, cheese, and an onion ring then drizzled with “Bayou sauce.” Saturday and Sunday 10:30am to 2pm. Click here for directions.
  • Vino & Vinyl Head to this cool wine bar, lounge and record shop. Click here for directions to enjoy a West Coast driven wine list and small roster of craft beer alongside weekend brunch. Hits include crème brûlée French toast, build-your-own omelets, chilaquiles, hangover burgers, and shrimp & grits. Adding to the atmosphere is vinyl tunes and local art. Saturday and Sunday 10am to 3pm. Click here for directions.
  • Bellagreen You’ll find breakfast tacos, pancakes and waffles, and morning specialties like the crab & avocado omelet on the weekend brunch menu at this fast-casual mini-chain. Saturdays and Sundays starting at 10:30am. Click here for directions.
