No doubt you’ve spotted one of Sinfull Bakery’s giant cinnamon at your local Whole Foods or HEB, but did you know that this beloved vegan bakery is based right here in Houston?

Travel to their newly opened flagship store to browse their full menu, which offers a mix of sweet & savory breads, pastries, and drinks. The sweetest treat of all is their all-natural, mostly organic ingredients. And yes, they’re 100% vegan!

There’s so much to love and try here, but we recommend their cinnamon rolls (of course), kolaches, breakfast sandwiches and their organic pop tarts. Wash everything down with a bottle of Pat Greer’s Strawberry Fields Forever kombucha! Yum!

Nancy’s Hustle is a lively modern bistro and wine bar with hearty, filling dishes. One peek at their menu (filled with all-natural ingredients and perfect cocktail pairings) is enough to have you planning a trip to the East End!

Try their Grilled Sirloin Tip or their Squid Ink Linguine if you’re looking to get started. Or, order the Goat Cheese Ice Cream for a unique flavor adventure!

Midtown, your new favorite bistro is here!

KP’s Kitchen is a “fast-casual” bistro offering delicious American-fare dishes. You’ll have to travel deep in the heart of Memorial to find them, but it’s worth it for their $5 BYOB deal!

The Post Wine & Beer Garden has already gained a massive following thanks to its Steak Night Tuesdays and crawfish boils! Its recently revamped building has been a part of  Sunset Heights for over 75 years! Stop by and grab a slice to eat and a slice of history!
