Brunch, My Favorite Meal.

I headed down to Texas this past weekend to take my little brother to his first NASCAR race, and made a quick stop in Houston before making my way to Dallas. I wanted to take full advantage of the time I had with my parents, so I knew brunch was a must do. It's my favorite meal of the day, and in my opinion it's the best way to spend quality time together. At what other meal is it acceptable to order three drinks (coffee, water, and mimosas!)?! My point exactly.
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.
