Sandwiched between Houston’s downtown, Montrose and Museum District neighborhoods, Midtown is a bustling center of activity — especially at night and on the weekends. It’s also home to some of the best places to eat in the city. Whether you’re looking for late-night bites, a great brunch spot or something for date night, here’s where to eat in Houston’s Midtown.

After a long work week — or a rowdy night out — Weights + Measures is a great place for a relaxing brunch. The menu is sophisticated — with brunch items like house smoked salmon with truffle egg scramble — but the space itself is crisp and inviting. The restaurant has tall windows that fill the open floor plan with lots of natural light, and a small outdoor patio for when the weather is nice. What sets Weights + Measures apart, however, is the bake shop and cafe. The pastries are light and flaky, and the lattes are deliciously well crafted.

Tip: Try the avocado toast. It comes with fried eggs, smoked bacon and green harissa, all on their fresh ciabatta bread.
