Since opening in 1975, Baba Yega has won a number of "Best Of" awards: best burger, best vegetarian restaurant, and best brunch, to name a few. But in 2011, the Houston Press presented the restaurant with a slightly more interesting award: "Best Place for a He to Be a She." Baba Yega is indeed a favorite hangout for members of the LGBT community, but its cozy, welcoming vibe brings in what the Houston Press describes as "a happy, friendly mix of straight and LGBT couples, groups and families." That might be because the menu offers a bit of something for everyone, from hefty steaks to vegetarian sandwiches to mimosas and bloody marys, which flow freely during Sunday brunch. And, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn't love the atmosphere––housed in a converted bungalow, the restaurant also features an award-winning patio lined with century-old oak trees.

Named in honor of the owner's beloved childhood sheepdog, Barnaby’s Café has five locations around Houston, and all of them compete for the title of friendliest place in town. Pet owners rave about the dog-friendly patios; according to Eater, the staff at the downtown location will even pack a sack lunch for pups to enjoy in the park across the street. Humans will find plenty to love as well, starting with the fact that Barnaby's 9-ounce green chile cheeseburger is crafted from humanely raised, all-natural beef. The same is true for the café’s chicken, which can be grilled and tossed onto a fresh salad or smoked and paired with a honey-barbecue sauce. This trend of high-quality ingredients is also apparent in desserts such as the big carrot cake, which is made exclusively with carrots that have lived a full and meaningful life.
