2604 Dunlavy Houston, TX 77098 | Lower Shepherd-Kirby | 713-528-1993

Location Description:

Its shady patio on the corner of Dunlavy and Westheimer makes for some terrific people-watching and eavesdropping, but most folks go to Brasil for coffee or hibiscus tea. Don't dismiss it as a diner, though. We always order the chicken salad sandwich, which is more than shredded chicken with mayo. Served on focaccia and topped with poblanos, cilantro, pumpkin seeds and jicama, it packs a punch. And the crunchy bagel chips on the side make you feel healthier.
