Absolutely and it was fantastic fun for us. We stopped for lunch and found warm, friendly staff and wonderful food. I wish we had this near our home. Our friends recommended this place and I would love to come back.

This is located in the heart of Rice village off Kirby Drive and University boulevard. They have good tarts, cakes and baguette. Good for hanging out or light eating or deserts.
