A great place for Mediterranean food! They have an excellent selection and the food is fresh and of quality. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. The only improvement would be to have someone a bit more energetic cleaning off the tables and picking things up.

Have to stop by for some ethnic Lebanese food. From coffee to food and desserts you can eat and still shop afterwards. It's really cool. Check it out.

Having recently moved to Houston after living in Beirut, my husband and I were very homesick for Lebanese food and staples that we had always taken for granted. After struggling for some time to find a place that sold good bread and olives, a friend told us that we have the one of best Mediterranean food stores within 20 minutes... More

We live in the suburbs and the Phoenician Market (the store) is one of our favorite places. We regularly make trips in to stock up on items that we can't get out in the 'burbs (e.g., the base for Borscht, Indian eggplant paste, Bulgarian feta, salads from the deli). We usually stop here for lunch or dinner after shopping. Cafeteria-ish,... More

I stayed at the Hilton America's hotel in May for a conference and came across Phoenicia just about 4 blocks away in the downtown core. It's a fine market with foods from around the world, a deli and an adjacent bar/cafe. I was there for a snack and ordered a local IPA, the Saint Arnold Elissa IPA along with a... More

This is a specialty food market with a bar and seating area! Full deli, bakery, etc. that would make for pricey everyday grocery shopping, but is perfect compared with most restaurant food.

We were staying at Four Seasons Hotel. Through the window I spotted Phoenicia Specialty Foods. Wow! How I wish we had a store like this at home. The breakfast we enjoyed there was not only delicious but very reasonably priced. The house coffee was bold and flavorful. Since we were sailing the next day on a Princess cruise, we appreciated...

Nice little place in Downtown Houston with a good selection of food, friendly staff, decent coffee and free wifi. Lots of interesting foods to try. I wasn't expecting the pistachio muffin to be quite that bright green though!
