We go for the shawarma wraps. My favorite is the lamb. There's always a line though so plan to wait a few minutes.

While visiting Houston, my family and I ate breakfast here. The staff was super friendly and they had a wide variety of breakfast items at affordable prices. They also have a coffee bar that has very quick service.

We visited this restaurant and food store several times during the week we were in Houston. The pizza was delicious. We loved the pastries and breakfast buffet! My son loved the strawberry, banana,and blueberry smoothies. If ever in Houston again, we will definitely eat here!

The answer is yes. There are stairs but an elevator is available. Some of the rows are narrow but you should be able to get along fine. The employees are very helpful and will assist you with anything you may need.
