An Eye-Opening Brunch at Snooze, an A.M. Eatery – an Eggcellent Way to Start the Day

July 6, 2019

Ah brunch, one of the best mealtimes of the day. This is a shout out to all my fellow eggs benedict fans and brunch lovers. During my recent trip to Houston, I tried a new brunch spot and I’m excited to spill the details on the experience. Warning: the images you are about to see may or may not increase your cravings for food. 😊

If you saw my previous food reviews (KPOT and White Dog Café), you know I share my experiences based on an average of four factors.

These 4 factors are:

  1. Taste – how yummy the food tastes
  2. Service – the good, the bad, and the strange (sometimes it can get pretty weird)
  3. Atmosphere – the ambiance and environment of the restaurant
  4. Value – Is it worth the price?

I use these factors because I think when you go out to a restaurant, you’re not just going out for the food but for the ambiance and service as well. I try to be detailed in my reviews to save you time, money, and potentially your taste buds from an experience that might not be worth it or to recommend places that are worth the effort.

So, is it a Snooze?

Snooze, an A.M. Eatery is a chain of breakfast and lunch eateries located in CO, CA, AZ, TX, and NC. I ate at their Houston, Texas location at: 5000 Westheimer Rd Suite 120, Houston, TX 77056.

Taste: 4/5

Simply put, the food tasted fresh and yummy. I ordered the Benny Duo. This is an option to choose any two of their eggs benedict orders and combine it into one order. It comes with house hash browns and a side of dressed greens (this is basically a bed of arugula with balsamic glaze on top). I chose a combo of the Ham Benedict III (classic eggs benedict with an English muffin topped with shaved Tender Belly ham, a poached egg, and smoked cheddar hollandaise) and Bella! Bella! Benny (a toasted ciabatta topped with prosciutto, taleggio cheese, poached egg, a cream cheese hollandaise, and balsamic glaze). Both of the eggs benedict was delicious! The classic Ham Benedict III was savory and well-seasoned. The Bella! Bella! Benny had a deeper flavor from the tasty combo of balsamic sauce and prosciutto. The ciabatta bread was an interesting twist that worked well. The eggs were perfectly poached too. The house hash browns were mushy and bland; nothing to rave about. The greens were okay.

I also ordered their Evolution Fresh Cold-Pressed juice (Orange Defense Up). It was good but because the restaurant buys this and doesn’t fresh press the juice itself, I am not considering it part of the review.  

Service: 4/5

The server was nice and got the order out in a timely manner.

Atmosphere: 4/5

The restaurant is lively, and the interior is vibrant. Despite the restaurant’s name, dining in definitely isn’t a snooze! It has a bustling atmosphere that wakes you up and energizes you.

Value: 4/5

Benny Duo – $12.75 | Cold Pressed Orange Juice – $5.25

Yes! Go grab brunch here but I wouldn’t recommend the juice. It seems way too overpriced for pressed juice that the restaurant doesn’t even fresh press in house. Based on the food quality, portions, and taste, the prices for the food seem reasonable.

Overall: 4/5

I had a nice experience at Snooze and would eat here again. Thanks for reading and I hope you found this review fun. Have you eaten at Snooze before? Let me know in the comments below. Don’t forget to show <3 if you liked this post!
