Long layover at Houston airport

WGibs | Jan 3, 2006 03:04 PM


I'm venturing over from the SF Bay Area board and hoping that you can help me in my brief travels through your fine state.

My boyfriend and I have a seven-hour layover in Houston this Saturday. Our plane from SF lands at 6:00 am and we don't fly out again until 1:00 pm. So, I'm thinking that should leave enough time to leave the airport, but we won't be renting a car for this little adventure. I see that there is a Metro system of buses and subways, but I haven't tackled it yet because I don't know where I might want to go. It looks like a taxi would be too expensive -- I can't see adding $80 to the cost of breakfast.

Any advice? At that time, we would be looking for a good breakfast/brunch. Probably nothing too spicy after a night flight with little sleep. Alcohol options are irrelevent to us at any time of day, and I can't eat gluten (wheat, rye, barley, oats), so places with non-bready options are best. This usually isn't a problem with breakfast, but just in case. I know, we sound like loads of fun, don't we?

Thanks for any guidance or ideas!
