Aren’t coffee and studying just two peas in a pod? Of course! Yet unfortunately, it can be so hard to find a coffee shop with it all: good wifi, pretty aesthetics, plenty of space, strong coffee, and most of all, the feeling of ~productivity~. But lemme tell you folks, I think I might’ve found the productivity pinnacle of coffee shops -- Greenway Coffee Company located in Greenway Plaza.
Nestled north of the Texas Medical Center and by Midtown Park, Kanau Sushi is a contemporary Japanese restaurant that offers lots of intriguing and eccentric items.
Cafes come in all shapes and sizes, but no matter where you go, you want to find a cafe for its life-enhancing food and coffee. And Dandelion Cafe is certainly one of those cafes!
Lucille’s is a tribute to a legacy of culinary excellence started almost a century ago; they “specialize in well-refined Southern cuisine with infusions of international techniques and flavors.” They were spot on to say the least.
When we tasted Cheater's Creamery ice cream, the words that came to mind were “intense, sharp and lovely.” That’s right; Cheater’s Creamery has ice cream that immediately pops and shines with flavor and pizzazz. It reminded me of the iconic comic book punchlines, like “Bam! Boom! Zap!” Enough references though, I’m sure you guys wanna know about the actual ice cream 😂.
Handies Douzo is an intimate sushi spot that is great for dates. They focus on the exquisite hand roll; basically, it’s a sushi roll wrapped in nori, but uncut, so you get to dive into the entirety of a sushi roll. And it is so good and so difficult to not just scarf down the entire roll.
Tucked right off a bustling street in Montrose is the lively Postino Wine Bar, located in an immediately-noticeable building (it was built back in the 40s, and has been home to some famed places!) Postino is a highly recommended place for something casual, fun, exciting and filled with good foods, boards and drinks.
Nestled in a nice spot in River Oaks, Armandos is “fashioned after 1920s’ Mexico City; it features classic Mexican fare with a nod to La Buenda Vida.” A style like that makes you know you’re living the good life whenever you dine at Armandos.
Italy has gifted the world with flatbreads, risotto, cheese and even more. One place, in my opinion, that embodies this breadth and depth of delicious food is Prego in Rice Village.
Traveler's Table is tucked inside a gorgeous building, surrounded by beautiful greenery and glass windows that allow for just the right amount of light to filter in, shining onto the dining room. A globally-inspired eatery, Traveler's Table prides itself in serving modern versions of global cuisine, adding their unique and identifiable twists to these staples around the world, without ever straying to far from the original dishes they pay homage to.
