Came to this place while doing a random search for breakfast spots on TA. Limited good menu, great breakfast potatoes and eggs. Get the waffle!

... you'll drive right by. Unless the Sunday morning brunch crowd catches your eye, that is. Go before nine or you'll have to wait, but it's worth it. My favorite is Huevos Rancheros, but feel free to experiment!!

Fantastic, Fresh food!! PARKING: Baby Barnaby's is a small cafe settled in a quaint neighborhood in Montrose. Parking sucks - bottom line. It's 100% street parking. Once you endure the parking, everything else is a good experience. SEATING & AMBIANCE: My fiancé and I went to eat here for brunch on a Saturday. We added our name to the list... More

Be careful where you park but worth the time it takes to find a spot. Enormous plates of food for low prices. Awesome service too! Try the Green Eggs and the Mina's!

Old house neighborhood setting and decor worth a visit by itself. Quality ingredients made right. Wife grew up on grits and biscuits, these are so good even a yankee like me has seen the light. Thick bacon crisped just so. Eggs done to your liking. Friendly service. Small layout adds to special feel. Wednesday visit had no wait. Not the... More

Love it here! Eat a lot of breakfast there. The potatoes are to die for. I try to get over there a couple of times a month. The wait staff is very friendly and accommodating. The parking is tight as well as the seating but who cares? I've had the green eggs, the huevos ranchos, and the migas. Bread is... More

Tiny, but cute place with a wonderful brunch menu! Outdoor space for nice weather. Wait was 30-45 mins. Staff are very friendly. Food was hearty and delicious! One of the best waffles ever! Definitely recommend for a nice brunch. Kid friendly. Only neg was no alcohol (mimosas).

Whenever we're in Houston, Sunday morning breakfast is at Baby Barnaby's. There may be a wait, but it's never too long, and it's always worth it. The wait staff is attentive and energetic. The food is wonderful - - all breakfast fare. The potatoes are especially good, and my dining companion always orders a breakfast burrito that "used to be... More

The food is good and the service is friendly. It's small and cozy inside and you can eat on the patio when the weather permits. We live in the neighborhood, so we eat here regularly. There's often a line on weekends, so arrive early if you don't like waiting. It's pretty much a Montrose institution. We love the biscuits and... More
