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.”

Café

“Located at Oxford and White Oak Dr. This place could also be listed under restaurants because the food is so good, but is primarily a bar. It has a low key vibe if the idea of a loud, busy bar isn’t what you are looking for.”

“The locals say this is one of the best cups of espresso in town and that's because this cafe is serious about coffee. The wide variety of beans and means of brewing they offer have one thing in common: quality. Not a fancy place, and not designed for those craving a corporate coffee drink, Catalina Coffee is an authentic coffee lover's dream.”
