The Most Instagrammed Dishes and Dining Rooms in Houston
Whether its beef rib or ice cream sundaes, these dishes top H-Town’s most-photographed charts
The Breakfast Klub
Arrive early at this Houston institution for one of the most coveted breakfast dishes in Houston - a warm, fluffy waffle sprinkled with powdered sugar and six crispy chicken wings, perfectly seasoned and juicy on the inside. At least it’s worth the wait diners endure when they don’t get there early.
Stacked Ice Cream
Good Instagram posts and the offerings at Stacked have similar qualities - they’re creative, colorful, and gets lots of likes. Bite into an ice cream sandwich made from a warm glazed donut split in half, or try crisp macarons filled with cold pressed ice-cream in flavors like jasmine milk tea or cookie butter and topped with Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Fruity Pebbles.
The Dunlavy & The Kitchen at The Dunlavy
The dripping chandeliers in this beautiful Allen Parkway resto get more attention than the food. Sip on a mimosa and dig into your Southwest breakfast bowl while soaking in the atmosphere, decór, and sweeping bayou views at this highly Instagrammed spot.
This charming juice and coffee bar Bebidas serves up several variations of toast including the “Plain Jane Toast” made of bananas, almond butter, and chia seeds, and the “Clementine Toast”, with almond ricotta on challah bread topped with honey and mint. But the real star of the show is the avocado toast, a simple spread of avocado on a well-toasted slice topped with radish, sprouts, and a healthy sprinkling of sea salt and lemon.
No need to board a ten-hour flight to Rome when you can experience a twist on classic gelato in the River Oaks District. Try fan favorites like the tart basil-lime, sweet mango, pistachio, or coconut flavored gelato molded to look like a beautiful rose in a waffle cone vase.
Bosscat Kitchen & Libations
Bosscat is known for its innovative take on traditional brunch and the Fruity Pebbles french toast is no different. This Instagram and drool-worthy dish features thick slices of bread soaked in sweetened condensed milk and topped with a heavy hand of crumbled bacon, fresh strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries plus the pièce de résistance, a coating of Fruity Pebbles.
The sight of the Cookies and Cream Popcorn Sundae alone is enough to give you diabetes, yet the risk may be worth it. A mix of vanilla bean gelato, homemade hot fudge, and cookies and cream popcorn is a clever play on traditional cookies and cream ice cream and gets served up often at this see-and-be-seen establishment. Added bonus: the Beignet Tree or Crispy Banana Split are equally Instagramable.
