Great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. And dessert! Tasty selection. I stop in here to get work done between appointments during the day and like the laid back atmosphere. Nice staff. Enjoy an adult beverage too

This place is a restaurant/coffee shop where you can perfectly grab a home made coffee or home made cake (recommend the chocolate one) which are very delicious and seat to chat for hours with your friends without being bothered. This place is on Westheimer street close to the montrose area and attracts local artists, painters, photographers and media people with some average people like you and me. This place gets crowded during weekends specially the evenings but if you visit this place during week days after 6 p.m. you can rest assure you will enjoy a great time in an almost empty place, recommended 110% gets A+++++

I visited this place with my cousins and I asked for a mocha latte, and actually I'm not a coffee fan but it was delicious, super good, much better than any other coffee in Mc Donald's or anywhere, so if you are in Houston TX stop there and enjoy of there delicious coffee and it's served with two incredible biscuits

The coffee and home made pancakes are amazing. You can order whole wheat pancakes with fruit. Mexican breakfast is great. Nice place to visit for breakfast.
