SOMNOLENCE ANTIDOTE

Coffee

Quiet brick-walled coffee shop around the Heights, conducive for studying. And if you’re getting burned out, beer and wine are readily available. Go for their bottomless coffee if intending to stay forever in their cafe 🙂   Fore more food/coffee hotspots, follow me on Instagram @coffeecuphtx

PRANZO AT SUD ITALIA

Food

A trip to Italy is definitely in my bucket list for so many reasons, and of course, one of which is because of their food. Located in the tony neighborhood Rice Village  is a cozy restaurant that will teleport you to Southern Italy. While I personally have not been in Italy, visiting this place will instantly take your senses away from Houston, and closer to Italy.  Sud Italia Ristorante offers traditional…

STEEL CITY POPS

Coffee, Food, Restaurant and Bar

I maybe a little late on this new Houston craze, but hey, it’s better late than never. Steel City Pops had opened their first store here in H-Town on May, and it has been the talk of the town since then. Steel City Pops is proud that their pops are made from the freshest all-natural and certified organic ingredients. They only sweeten their pops with raw, organic cane sugar, and never…

COMMON BOND: REVISITED

Coffee, Food

Before my fondness of the Heights, I’ve always loved being around Montrose for its lively and vibrant feel. This is where I discovered some of the best coffee shops in town, one of which is Agora, and then not too recently, the Common Bond. Macarons, freshly baked bread, scrumptious pastries, they got it. They also serve entrees, so make sure to check out their breakfast menu, and of course their…
