Popular after-hours hangout w great cafe au lait – This popular evening hang-out for the Vietnamese in Houston offers up decent beignets and great chickory flavored coffee every day. I was surprised to see the place completely packed with young and old - think 50's something to 20something on warm weekday night out in Houston. We joined in the fun by snagging one of the large round tables outside, where we nibbled on beignets, drank coffee, people watched, and had some friendly conversation until well after 10pm. The interior decor has fluorescent white lighting and typical diner-type chairs and melamine tabletops, but the cafe is clean and organized well and people seem to love it.
Beware of Bugs!!! – I went to this place because supposedly they have really good beignets. I was completely disgusted. There were flies inside the restaurant, and when I got my 'self-serve' coffee, a cockroach came out of the coffee dispenser.
When I told one of the employees that a cockroach came out of their coffee dispenser, he just said to get a different cup....
Horrid Service and Roach Motel – Popular after-hours hangout.....for cockroaches. I stepped up to order off their menu and noticed I wasn't the only one in line. Apparently cockroaches have a taste for mediocre beignets, too. Will not be going back...will save my hankering for good beignets when I venture back to Cafe Du Monde a la New Orleans.
In addition, the glowering owner made me feel as welcome as hurricane blowing thru New Orleans. Maybe it was an off day. So, if you are into cockroaches, horrid customer service and "off brand" beignets, this is the place for you. Cheers!
