Bistro Des Amis

2347 University Blvd. Houston, TX 77005 | Kirby-West U | 713-349-8441

Location Description:

The Village's Bistro des Amis looks like the sort of small town French cafe where you stop to get a coffee and a pastry or an ice cream while shopping in the village. The gleaming dark wood and glass pastry case is always well-stocked. Lunch and dinner specials are very reasonable and the soups, stews and pastries are housemade. Try the escargot in puff pastry or the pate with cornichons.
