A MORNING AT CATALINA

Coffee

Looking for a chill & hipster vibe? Catalina Coffee is a must-visit. It is located along the art district in Washington Ave. They serve amazing coffee from Amaya Roasting, a local coffee company in Houston. If you’re into artsy coffee, I have heard they have the best latte art, although mine was not perfect that day. But it’s no big deal, as long as the coffee was great. One thing…

COMMON BOND: REVISITED

Coffee, Food

If you have no time for dining in, you may go grab some sandwich or salad, and of course, some coffee. However, if you have some time, go check their restaurant located on the second level of the building. I was terribly hungry at that time, and ordered their…

NEW ORLEANS: CELEBRATING THE 4TH, NOLA STYLE

Travel

After celebrating Pride weekend in Houston with a bang, and spontaneously driving to Austin half-drunk, my travel spirit is back, and I just need to wander somewhere outside Texas every weekend, or even just Houston, since Texas is almost the size of the Pangaea, and driving for 12 hours won’t take you anywhere but Texas. Haha. So for this July 4th celebration, we’ve decided (read: I decided) to see what…

MORNINGSTAR: WHERE MORNINGS START RIGHT!

Coffee, Lifestyle

Not surprisingly, this is another hotspot located at the Heights. You just gotta love this neighborhood, they love food, and they just have everything right. One of which is Morningstar, where surely every morning starts right if you make them part of your morning routine. Their menu is extensive. Of course I will not be able to try everything so I asked the staff for his suggestions, and gladly ordered…

PEARLAND COFFEE ROASTERS

Coffee

Pearland Coffee Roasters is a hidden gem in Pearland, and one of its kind. Ideally located next to Central Texas Style BBQ, and not too far from the infamous Killen’s Barbeque. Definitely a must visit when you’re in the area. Green Tea Latte!
