The Brazos Valley is quickly becoming the Southern Brunch capital of the World, y’all… I am seriously convinced of this! With the continued growth of our community we have attracted a few new eateries that are making my gym membership quiver.
Sundays are for Jesus and brunch with my girls, (pause I’m making a T-shirt now with this quote). This summer we have had a few new spots pop up that you need to add to your weekend brunch plans asap. First on the list is Stella Southern Cafe.
A fun fact about the name of the restaurant, it was actually named after the owner Michael Lair’s 1995 Dodge Dakota club cab with a 5.2 liter V8 engine, Stella. A part of every road trip adventure he took, Stella now lives on through the name of his southern cafe.
Walking into the restaurant you are immediately greeted by hosts who provide you with a menu while waiting in line to order your food. Don’t worry it’s not a long wait, but you will be tempted by all of the great gift items and homemade jams as you make your way to the register.
I had a tough decision to make because everything on the menu just looked amazing. I decided to go with a more traditional breakfast which included eggs, bacon, grits (with cheese of course) and I would be crazy not to try their homemade biscuits with mimosa jam. I didn’t know that my favorite breakfast drink could be made into a jam, but they found a way!
The overall dining experience was excellent. The staff was warm and friends, much like the south. My friends and I will definitely put the Stella Southern Cafe into our brunch rotation! xx-Jennifer
