Snooze A.M. Eatery

I am apart of a group called Awkward Black Ladies on Facebook and one of the ladies, Ashley, posted about going to brunch. I’ve never gone to brunch before because there aren’t any places I know of that serve a vegan brunch, or vegan breakfast period, in Houston. So I responded anyway because 1). I want to make more friends, and 2). I wanted to venture out and see if indeed I have just not been looking hard enough. Sure enough, we agreed on going to Snooze, which I have never been, but a vegan friend of mine swears by it.


I arrived first and immediately was not happy with parking, however, because I’m familiar with that area, I wasn’t surprised. I parked on the street not too far away so it wasn’t that bad. I walk to the restaurant and I see a ton of people standing at the door. They were all waiting to be seated. The wait was an hour so that wasn’t too bad. Anything longer, we would have decided to go somewhere else.

Once Ashley arrived, we talked and chatted. She’s new to Texas and has only been here about three months. With all the people standing at the door and it opening and closing, it was very hot. We finally got seated and it wasn’t a complete hour that we waited. We opted to sit outside since that was first available and we were very hungry.


I forgot to take more pictures, but when I go back, and yes, I will go back, I will update this post. I ordered an iced spicy chai tea latte with almond milk to drink. Looking at the menu I was pleasantly surprised to see vegan options that weren’t salads. I can’t tell you how many places I go and their idea of satisfying a vegan is to put a salad on the menu, which is quite insulting if you think about it.

I ordered the quinoa porridge (quinoa, oats, berries, cinnamon, and maple syrup, cooked in almond milk), soyrizo and hash browns. Each dish was superb and I will definitely be recreating the quinoa porridge and making a video, so stay tuned for that.

Over all, I loved the restaurant. Food was great and so was the service. There wasn’t a long wait time for our food to come and it came piping hot. If you live in Houston or are ever visiting, please make it a mission to hit up Snooze.

5* for Green Vegetarian Cuisine

Today I went to Green Vegetarian Cuisine and what I love about them is that all menu items, you can make vegan. I had the chik’n fried chik’n with herb mashed potatoes and kale. It was amazing and so flavorful. I don’t typically eat meat substitutes but when I do, it is only when I go out. The gravy was so flavorful and savory.

I typically only go to vegan/vegetarian restaurants when I am in the area or I am meeting a friend. I had only been to this restaurant once before and since I had business in that area (a mile away), I figured I would stop by. I am glad I did.

The staff is uber friendly (thanks Victoria) and always willing to help, at least for the time that I was there. When I came in, there were only a few people but after a few minutes, the place was becoming packed.

Another thing I love about them is that they are fast. In this instance it is actually okay to be fast. When cooking vegan food, it doesn’t take as long as it does when cooking animals. Vegan foods can even be eaten without being cooked all the way because there is no chance of getting any kind of illness by eating half cooked vegan food.

I think I had been sitting there for 5-10 minutes after ordering until they brought my food and I was glad because I was starving. The presentation was also key because I am a very visual person. If it is presented pretty, I am more likely to inhale it.

I highly recommend this restaurant if you are ever in Houston or San Antonio.
