Our dear friend Elizabeth came to spend a long weekend in Houston with us recently….since there’s not much else to do in Houston besides eating and drinking….we took her around to some neighborhood places to (guess) eat & drink!
We hit some faves: Coltivare and Eight Row Flint….also tried to take her to Johnny’s Gold Brick, it’s a 10 minute walk from our house; so we decided to head over even though it was 96 degrees but I assured her it would be worth it once we got our frozen margaritas…spoiler alert it was NOT worth it because they weren’t open and we had to walk back home which was very uncomfortable but whatever.
Anyway this post is about another neighborhood place, also within walking distance, called Angela’s Oven.
If you are a bread person, this place is for you.
Their sourdough bread is so so SO good, excellent baguettes, muffins are 10/10 and if you go for breakfast, get the Sammy:
The Sammy is egg and cheese on sourdough and it’s simple but deeelish. The little hole from where they put the egg is is served as a mini sandwich with a creamy garlic cream cheese in the middle:
I recommend getting their cold brew, I’m not a big fan of their drip coffee. One thing I will say, I was underwhelmed by the avo toast. But croissant and muffin were great. I didn’t actually try the croissant but Elizabeth liked it and I trust her.
It’s a great spot and we don’t often go for breakfast but to get bread, can’t beat it. My favorite is going and getting a baguette for Sabbath breakfast, SUCH a treat!
Hope everyone is having a great Monday so far, I am, although it would be better if I was eating a Sammy right now 😉
