Morning, Breakfast & Brunch: 8 AM – 12 PM

The Breakfast Klub

As one of the best breakfast spots in the US, if you’re looking for the most delicious breakfast in Houston, you’ve got to try The Breakfast Klub. The diner-style breakfast restaurant serves up delectable soul food, including a highly commendable chicken and waffles. 

Take a stroll at your local park

At the Memorial Park Conservancy, you can find basically anything that you want to do with your partner outdoors. Go on a walk through the trails, play some golf, have a picnic, or take a dip in the swimming pool. It’s the perfect place to relax and wake up to nature.

Brenner’s Steakhouse On The Bayou

This upscale, rustic brunch spot is a gorgeous restaurant with lush greenery, waterfalls, and more on the outer deck. The idyllic scenery itself is worth the visit, but the food is also crafted as unique dishes, with perfectly paired drinks. It’s just right for a fancy morning out.

Siphon Coffee

If you’re looking to just grab a coffee or a quick bite, SIphon Coffee is your best bet. They also serve larger breakfast and lunch options and beer & wine. The cafe uses an older method for brewing their coffee, giving it a more rich taste. Plus, if you come in on a Saturday morning, you and your date can catch a local musician!

Afternoon, Lunch: 12 PM- 4 PM

La Griglia

For over 30 years, this Houston-favorite has served authentic Italian dishes in an upscale casual atmosphere. With fire pits and beautiful artistic vivid murals lining the restaurant, La Griglia is a great lunch spot to visit with your partner for an intimate setting to eat some delicious food and have a warm conversation.


Craving a little bit of spice for your lunch? Kiran’s is the place to go. Distinguished Chef Kiran cooks up beautiful traditional Indian dishes with a modern twist. Her inventive fusion fare is worth the visit to this classic Indian restaurant. 

Bayou Wildlife Zoo

If you and your partner are animal lovers, visiting the wildlife zoo is the perfect afternoon date. This open-range zoo features a huge variety of animals including deer, camels, zebras, and many more. There’s also a 30-minute safari tram ride and there are snacks offered at the Big Red Barn!

Berry Picking at Jollisant Farm

It’s Spring! Head out to pick some sweet ripe berries to take home with your partner. Depending on the month, you can also find pumpkins, carrots, kale, broccoli, and all sorts of other veggies. 

Evening, Dinner: 4 PM – 8 PM

Bat Watching at Waugh Bridge

Over 250,000 bats fly out from under Waugh Drive Bridge on warm nights. This is a great romantic sunset date with your partner; viewing is also free from the platform, sidewalk, and bridge. You can also get a bat colony tour for a small price. 

Kemah Boardwalk

If you’re looking for a more competitive night of fun, check out Kemah Boardwalk, the best amusement park in the Houston area. One of the highlights of coming to Kemah is enjoying the Boardwalk Beast ride, a 25 minute thrill ride on a cruise. With 42 track crossovers, the most ever designed for a roller coaster, be sure to also check out the famous Boardwalk Bullet, too.

Xin Chao

For a more low key dinner, Xin Chao is a lovely Vietnamese restaurant to visit. Serving up steaks, fried rice, and seafood dishes, the restaurant is well-known in the Houston Asian community. This is also the restaurant owned by renowned Masterchef winner, Christine Ha.


If you and your partner are fans of evening light shows, visit the Houston Museum of Natural Science’s Planetarium for the Dark Side of the Moon show. To the tune of Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ album, this light show uses a full-dome high definition audio and visual system to put on a spectacular show for visitors.

After Hours, Drinks & Small Bites: 8 PM – 12 AM

Showboat Drive In

Late night movies are a classic date night idea, so the Showboat Drive In is great idea for those movie-lovers. The theater shows double features, and features a snack bar as well.
