I love the name but felt the establishment could have been more hobbity. If that's a word. The food was good and creative but the Frodo sandwich was missing flavour. I will try here again.

The original café opened on Shepherd in 1972 and was strictly a vegetarian café. It was very quaint and the food was awesome (loved the smoothies and Bilbo Baggins). While driving in Houston a few years I drove past the location and saw it was...More
