Cafe Express

Spearheaded by a UT art grad-cum-chef who's been with the company since its birth 26 years ago, Cafe Express is a Houston-based chain just now launching their first ATX location: a minimalist glass-walled space filled with reclaimed bamboo tables and dishing sizable salads, sammies, burgers, and newly revamped pastas, all of which they try to get out to you in eight minutes -- though aren't you supposed to carbo-load before totally blasting your abs?
