Niko Niko's Market Square

301 Milam St. Houston, TX 77002 | Downtown/ Midtown | 713-224-4976

Location Description:

The first-ever offshoot of Montrose favorite Niko Niko's sits right in the middle of the revamped Market Square Park downtown, making it popular with office workers during the day and downtown residents at dinner. Box lunches for less than $10 provide a tremendous amount of tasty food in easy-to-tote containers, and the $4 breakfast pitas - our favorite is the falafel version - can't be beat for delicious, filling breakfasts to go.
