Best Of Houston® 2021: Best Doughnut

Like the beignets at Café du Monde in New Orleans or chicken and waffles from Roscoe’s in L.A., the sugar-flaked doughnuts churned out for 85 years by Shipley Do-nuts are quintessential to the city from which they originated. Earnest food bloggers everywhere should have Shipley’s at the top of any list meant to drive foodies to the city for a “taste of Houston.” Name another local foodstuff that better fits the bill – go ahead, we’ll wait, and while we do we’ll nosh on an airy, never-greasy Shipley’s glazed. Take your time while we savor its simple but enduring brilliance.

Best Of Houston® 2021: Best Bar - Midtown

Since first opening in 2016, Axelrad has become a Midtown favorite and one of the best spots in town to enjoy a drink with friends in the fresh open air. The bar’s draft beer selection is one of the best in town, sporting loads of local favorites, cool Texas creations and funky brews from across the county. But beer isn’t all Axelrad does well — their cocktails are excellent too, from the 59 South that mixes Sailor Jerry and pineapple rum to the 3rd Ward Smash, the bar’s take on the classic whiskey smash that’s spiced up with a few dashes of grapefruit bitters.

Best Of Houston® 2021: Best Bar - Montrose

A relative newcomer to the bustling Monstrose bar scene, 6’s and 7’s opened its doors in early 2020, right next door to local institution Rudyards. The bar has a hip yet low-key, welcoming atmosphere, with tons of shifting cool-toned neon light art adorning the walls and tables that helps set the laid-back mood beverage director Lacy Williams and chef Anthony Calleo were aiming to achieve. Williams’ cocktails proudly hold their own among the most creative concoctions in H-Town — we loved the One Night in Bangkok with its egg white creaminess that offsets a citrusy, slightly spicy kick, but the drink offerings are oft-evolving. Calleo’s menu is also a hit, full of elevated pub fair like garlic knots, scrumptious curly fries and a plethora of hot dogs full of off-the-wall toppings like smoked corn pico de gallo and Chinese hot honey mustard.
