I love the Houston style of hangouts. You know, ice houses, bar/grills, etc. This is an all day joint. They serve breakfast, and emphasize coffee, but as others have noted, it is actually a place to drink, graze and hang out. Our group of four spent a couple hours here today. When we arrived, it was raining, and we sat... More

Although it bills itself as a "coffee bar and lounge" it is more of a Texas grill and café. This is one of the Creek Company restaurants. There are Cedar Creek, Dry Creek and Canyon Creek as well. The Set-Up: Onion Creek is located in heights and like all of the Creeks, Onion Creek has a casual Austin Texas theme.... More

I just had lunch at one of my favorite eating spots, I do have several, different eating spots for different moods. Yesterday was perfect; 75 degrees outside with a bright sun, the perfect setting for a cold beer and the best hot sandwiches you will ever put your mouth around. The outdoor patio is surrounded by trees and the air... More

We went for breakfast, which was not bad. You order at the cash register. Our order came out fairly quick, although we were there just as breakfast was winding down. Arrived just before lunchtime on Friday. Sorry to have missed the reportedly very good "Fried Chicken Friday"!!!!! Great beer selection for a coffee house. Very rustic and homey inside. Nice... More

My husband and I went for lunch at this place and it was delicious. They have a great beer selection and spacious outdoor seating. I would definitely go back when in Houston!

Went during FPSF, and Houston was surprising not too hot out. The beer selection is very good, with plenty of local offerings. For general bar food it was very good viddles. Less pretentious than some of the other places i visited in that area.

Had a group of five. Everyone ate something different and we all enjoyed our selections. From fried pickles to outstanding salads, four types of burgers and hot dogs, reuben sandwich, eight types of pizzas to select from, etc. Loved the look of the place as well. Who wouldn't give thumbs up for a John Belushi poster in his Animal House... More

My husband and I stopped by the Onion Creek Coffee House for lunch. We both ordered sandwiches which were some of the best ones we have had. My salad was delicious and my ice tea was fresh. It's a nice a cozy restaurant with plenty of room for everyone with the outdoor patio. The service was excellent.

We enjoyed our Anniversary weekend at this casual place after finding it by chance after shopping in Houston. We were just looking for a snack, but after seeing what was coming out of the kitchen, we ordered the Italian sasuage, goat cheese pizza and the Sabine salad. Both were actually BETTER than the fancy French food that we had at... More
