Cafe Express: "Cafe Society" Cafe Express Tip by topmarmot

Cafe Express, Houston: 2 reviews and 0 photos

In Houston, people want instant gratification, so how to explain the fact that they're willing to stand in long lines at Cafe Express? Well, the broad range of the menu, the quality and the reasonable prices probably help, but I think the cafe society ambience has a lot to do with it, particularly at lunchtime.

Inside and outside tables are available.

Favorite Dish: Roasted garlic! Just check you don't have any important meetings scheduled if you're going to indulge.

Pastas are good. Black bean soup is excellent. The sandwiches are pretty serious. Even the burgers are good, particularly the one with bacon and blue cheese. At the other end of the health spectrum, I enjoy the trio salad, small potions of 3 different salads for those who get bored easily with that kind of thing.

Address: Several around Houston
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: I go to the Memorial & Beltway 8 location and the the one at Uptown Park.
Price: less than US$10
