...well, you know the rest.

At Macondo Latin Bistro -- the subject of this week's cafe review -- I was just as charmed by the fine little dining room as I was the food. I found myself lingering there far longer than was necessary and eagerly planning return visits for breakfast, my favorite time at the restaurant, especially on the weekends.

There's something about the tall ceilings, the decorative shutters on those high windows above the doors, the rich wooden bar and floors and the kaleidoscopic paint on the walls that called to mind Cuba or perhaps some of the smaller islands in the West Indies. It's enchanting.

But sometimes words alone aren't enough. Take a quick trip through Macondo for yourself in this week's slideshow, then take a trip to the restaurant itself while the weather is nice and you can enjoy a glass of maracuya on the patio.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
