I can’t believe it’s already Christmas Eve! It feels like 2015 just started and now it’s practically over. Every year at Christmas, my sister and I have a tradition of going to eat brunch or dinner together instead of exchanging gifts. We started it when I was spending all my time traveling for work and then I moved to Houston, so we both agreed we didn’t need any stuff from each other, just to spend time together.
We celebrated our holiday brunch this year at Herbie’s in the Central West End. Herbie’s is typically known for it’s delicious dinner, but I’d gotten a few recommendations to try their brunch out. It did not disappoint.
Once we got settled at our cozy table in the bistro looking over holiday shoppers, we quickly realized what makes Herbie’s such a good brunch spot: bottomless brunch!
I love a bottomless brunch, maybe it’s the accountant in me, but it’s just fiscally irresponsible to not partake if it’s offered.
Brunch is the mimost important meal of the day after all.
We browsed the menu and genuinely wanted to order everything, but I settled on the eggs benny. Then our waitress came to take our order and mentioned the special was a peanut butter and jelly pancake. Erin and I knew immediately we’d obviously be splitting one of those.
The best eggs benny and potatoes I’ve had in ages.
But the real star was the PB&J pancake.
A thick pancake cooked in a cast iron skillet filled with peanut butter and topped with house made jam. Yeah, I’d eat that.
If you’re not sold by now, then just get out.
After we finished our massive brunch and
two three four mimosas, we headed out for a little last minute Christmas shopping and future house shopping to wrap up our Christmas date.
