Café
“One of the greatest original cool spots in Houston on Westheimer Blvd. --Houston's most popular street. Most nights you can check out a jazz trio or quirky film on the patio. Their sweet potato and black bean tamales are excellent as is the Crispy Kale salad with popped rice. Go for coffee, desserts, beer and Prosecco on tap.”
