Snooze, an A.M. Eatery
This vibrant, retro Denver import offers creative breakfast options made from sustainable ingredients that will make your stomach and your heart happy. Snooze A.M. Eatery serves morning food all day long at great prices, so stop in before or after noon for a delicious meal to fuel the rest of your day. We recommend ordering a pancake flight with three unique, seasonal pancake options that you can’t find anywhere else. If pancakes aren’t your thing, don’t fear.

The best part is, you can eat here knowing you’re helping make the world a better place. Snooze donates 1% of its sales back to its communities while composting and recycling nearly 90% of its waste. It’s a win-win!
Warning: this spot is so popular, sometimes you’ll see a line going outside the door, so make sure you arrive early or use their online waitlist to skip the line.
Hugo’s is the brain-child of Chef Hugo Ortega, a Houston icon who immigrated from Mexican to Houston and began in the restaurant business as a dishwasher at Backstreet Café. In 2002, he created this namesake restaurant to rediscover the foods of his homeland.
This iconic Sunday brunch spot in Montrose offers authentic regional Mexican cuisine in the form of an all-you-can eat buffet topped off with live music, giving you an incredible experience with a tasty meal. Featuring classics like ceviche, carnitas, chilaquiles, lechon, chile relleno, and tamales, Hugo’s is as delicious as it is authentic and will not disappoint!
Get a taste of the tropics at Present Company, an upbeat, vibrant, two story patio bar that offers an oasis in the middle of Montrose. With neon signs, bright colors, patterned wallpaper, and an outside wall covered in grass and flowers, you can brunch in style and snag some Instagram-worthy photos while you’re at it.
Their brunch is a must, with an upbeat, boozy vibe, a live DJ, and great prices with a variety menu. Whether you get breakfast tacos, a flatbread pizza, or a breakfast skillet, your taste buds will thank you for it. Pair your food with one of Present Company’s creative cocktails. We recommend trying the alcoholic drinks served in La Croix cans!
Common Bond Bistro & Bakery
Since 2014, Common Bond Bistro & Bakery has been a neighborhood favorite for great community and extraordinary food and pastries. This rustic-chic cafe and bakery features acclaimed chefs that create some of the most delicious, Instagram-worthy sweets and brunch plates. We recommend trying the tamale benedict, which features ancho pork tamales, fresh avocado, ranchero sauce, and chipotle hollandaise and pairing it with the lavender latte for an incredible meal.
You may catch a line out the door on weekends, but fear not! The line moves fast, so you’ll be on your way to all the tasty goodness in no time.
Cuchara is a bistro serving creative Mexican food and overlooking the beautiful Montrose neighborhood, making it a perfect spot for a weekend brunch. But the patio tends to get pretty packed, so make sure you snag a spot so you can enjoy the view!
Inside, you can find a setting brightened with whimsical paintings and a live mariachi-jazz band playing music that makes the whole vibe come together. We recommend trying the chilaquiles and huevos chelo (crispy potato tacos topped with fried eggs, salsa verde, and cotija cheese). Trust us, it’s to die for!
Max's Wine Dive
Right next door to Cuchara is our go-to brunch spot, Max’s Wine Dive. This “upscale dive bar” offers a standout wine list, late-night comfort food, a Texas-proud jukebox, and some amazing brunch plates! The dive is known for its friend chicken and champagne, so we recommend starting out your brunch visit with some mimosas while you grub on things like the fried chicken and honey butter benedict.
Not only do we love the food and drinks, but Max’s Wine Dive offers awesome service with a staff that’s outgoing, knowledgeable, and fun, which contributes to our absolute adoration of this place!
