Houston is growing so much and is filled with so many amazing cultures, no matter what part of Houston you go to you’ll find something great! I’ll be telling you about the coolest mom and pop shops, restaurants and places to go!
So to start off, my FAVORITE place to go for coffee is a2ndcup. I get the toffee coffee. Not only does this place have good coffee, it helps raise awareness about sex trafficking! Everyone is so nice, you’ll love it.
Everyone loves icecream right?! FatCatCreamery has regular icecream AND vegan icecream. I believe the flavors are different everyday, but you can’t go wrong with their unique flavors.
Y’all. Brasil Cafe is a need. If anyone in Houston hasn’t eaten here, you need to. They have good pizza, but I usually get the butternut squash and habanero tamales with an arugula salad- it’s heaven!! Also, CommonBond Cafe is right across the street if you want amazing pastries!
Now let’s talk about shopping. A little gem is Casa Ramirez in the heights. They have tons of Latin/Hispanic gifts, books, art, you name it!
Let’s talk about free! The Contemporary Arts Museum and Menil collection are some really good places to go. The contemporary arts museum changes its collections often, so it’s a great place to always go back to! The Menil has different sections of art that’s sometimes thousands of years old, to modern and cultural art.
Montrose has tons of cute resale shops and antique stores back to back, so you can make it a day there! Especially if you eat at Brasil Cafe.
Rice Village is basically a mini mall. They have Half Price bookstore, small boutiques, and affordable restaurants all around. You can’t go wrong visiting, or walking the little trail around Rice University!
Wherever you go in Houston you’re bound to have fun, and good food! I hope y’all enjoyed this post for future Houston trips, or just to get to know HTown more.
