Green Eggs? Yes Please!! – By far the best breakfast I've had in Houston, maybe ever. You will have to wait, but as mentioned...it's well worth it.
Great breakfast! – If your a fan of Barnaby's you will no doubt love love love Baby Barnaby's! It is cozy and tucked away in a nice neighborhood in the Montorse area. I was very impressed with the menu selection and the prices were great. $5 will get you an awesome huevos ranchero plate...not just anyone can get huevos rancheros right, but I give them two thumbs way up! I will no doubt be returning.
Great Breakfast Spot! – If your a fan of Barnaby's you will love Baby Barnaby's. It is tucked away in a cozy spot in the Montrose area, with outdoor and indoor seating. We sat immediately (I arrived right before the morning rush 10am). Although the location is small and a wait quickly forms outside, it is well worth the wait. I was very impressed with the menu, the selection was awesome. I ordered the huevos rancheros, and I have to say that they were some of the best I've ever had. It was relaxing and the staff was friendly and quick. I am most definitely going to be visiting again soon.
Street corner patio brunching at its best – This is my boyfriend and I's go-to weekend brunch spot. We always wait extra for a table outside because the inside is far too loud and always share the same dish: the low-fat protein burrito but made with fat (we add cheese and potatoes). Most importantly the waiters do not hesitate to bring us an extra order of the sides (guac, salsas, sour cream). This is a key to our relationship as we have nearly broken up over condiment sharing issues.
They serve brunch until two on weekends, which gives me time to get there and sip coffee for a couple hours on the patio without feeling rushed. Serve yourself coffee while you wait and full carafes of water at the table keep you happy.
Charming, friendly service, consistently tasty and filling - a true neighborhood gem. Bicycle in to avoid parking hassles.
Citysearch Editorial Review – A cozy booth in the tiny dining room at Baby Barnaby's (next door to Barnaby's proper) is a coveted spot for lazy weekend mornings. Diners autograph a pad of paper posted by the front door to reserve a table, then people-watch on the porch while sipping mugs of fair-trade coffee. The one-page, breakfast-only menu offers simple morning pleasures with gourmet twists, such as Green Eggs--scrambled eggs with spinach, artichoke hearts and jack cheese--with a side of slightly sweet chicken-apple sausage and perfectly crispy seasoned potatoes. For all its got going for it, Baby Barnaby’s is Montrose’s darling, all dressed up in a rainbow-striped chimney.
Incredible Service! – this was our first visit to Baby Barnaby's, we frequent Barnaby's(Midtown) often. we did have a wait as we arrived after 12:00 p.m. it was not painful at all, as we quickly poured a cup of coffee and enjoyed the people watching until we were seated.
the service is great and they are very accommodating to any request. my husband ordered the apple pecan pancakes and i ordered the corn beef hash. his serving was easily enough for two(or 3). be aware that they make these as ordered, so there is a wait time you should factor in. definitely worth the wait. my corn beef hash was not what i expected. it was not terrible, however i probably will not order it again. the potatoes were wonderful, but there were so many and the beef was minimal and dry. i wish i would have asked for a detail of this dish as it's not the traditional CBH i was anticipating.
the customer service definitely compensated for any disapppointment otherwise(thanks Jose!). we are already discussing what we will try the next time we visit Baby Barnaby's
Favorite place for breakfast – I don't know if it's the amazing banana-walnut pancakes or the personalized service, but Baby Barnaby's is the perfect place for a Sunday morning breakfast. Be sure and get there right when it opens or plan on a 15+ minute wait for a table. They have coffee for those waiting. The waiters are very personable and do a great job managing a very busy place. I don't know what else to say except give it a try.
Wonderful!! Great Service! – My husband and I go there frequently for breakfast and have always enjoyed it. The waiters are attentive and always accommodating. The coffee is great and so is the food. I have no complaints about the wait, the service or the food and we go at the most crowded times.
Only breakfast, only in Montrose. – The Scene
A cozy booth in the tiny dining room at Baby Barnaby's (next door to Barnaby's proper) is a coveted spot for lazy weekend mornings. Diners autograph a pad of paper posted just inside the front door to reserve a table, then read newspapers or people-watch on the front porch.
Following in its proud papa's footsteps, Baby serves traditional American and comfort food, but specializes in breakfast fare. The terse blackboard menu offers simple morning pleasures, nothing fancy: eggs (any style), biscuits and gravy, english muffins, homemade pancakes and fresh cantaloupe. Huevos rancheros--a gooey slab of perfectly cooked eggs, seasoned fried potatoes and black beans smothered in melted Jack cheese with chipotle salsa ranchera--and a generously stuffed breakfast burrito emphasize the down-home spirit.
