Tips from foursquare

  • Jenn on 08/08/10

    Sunday Brunch rox!

  • CultureMap Houston on 12/28/11

    With the social set flocking to new bars and clubs on Washington, Shade is a great place to kick-off an evening of sampling some of the city’s hottest nightspots.

  • Almost Veggies on 10/27/10

  • Gira D. on 10/11/11

    One of the best brunch in town. Eggs Benedict is the way to go.

  • Laura B. on 10/02/11

    Best macaroni & cheese
