My husband took me there last night on Valentine's Day. I have problems with crowds so he found this adorable cafe which happens to be on the side of the Houston Zoo. They were having a special deal for Valentine's Day. They had live music, the trees had twinkly lights, the outdoor tables had a candle and all the ladies received a flower and chocolates. Included with the 3 course meal was a ride on the lake on a little boat. The staff was so nice, attentive and worked as fast as they could being that it was Valentine's day and many couples were there.
The food was great! When you think the cafe next to the Zoo you think bad quality food. No way! We each decided to have the jalapeno hummus and chips, I'm normally not that big on hummus, I loved it. They recommended the grilled cheese sandwiches, you should definitely try one, they have a variety to choose from but I have to say its good.
Overall it was amazing. Ambiance was perfect, staff were amazing, food was delicious, weather turned out cold but that is not anything anyone can control. They allowed us to get a rain check on our boat ride. I will definitely be going there again soon!
