We decided on Backstreet Café, a restaurant set in a 30s era house in the River Oaks area. It's charming, and quaint, and nestled between trees, right up my alley. They have two great outdoor seating areas, with an amazing backyard patio, the perfect place to enjoy the sunny Texas weather.
My mom and I opted for breakfast food, she had the gingerbread waffles which were to die for, and I had the migas, while my dad went with the lobster rolls. It was the perfect combination of sweet and salty to share.

We sat there all morning drinking lattes, sipping on mimosas, and solving all the issues of the world. I'm blessed with some pretty awesome parents. They are so great about always making sure I know that they love and support me, but also letting me grow and learn as I make my own decisions.
