Owner: Karine Favre-Massartic
Eighteen years ago, when Karine Favre-Massartic moved to Houston from Paris, she missed the iconic French cafes of the City of Light so much that she set out to create her own. Inspired by Baudelaire and Victor Hugo, Café Poêtes was built to resemble the The Orangerie de Bagatelle in Paris, with a dining room filled with light and a bookcase that reached the ceiling. A place to enjoy a perfectly brewed cup of cafe au lait while munching on a croissant or beautiful eclair, high tea is a major indulgence here. Come dinnertime, Favre-Massartic plays chef, turning out dishes like the foie gras au torchon, mushroom veloute, and duck confit.
How to order: Open for dine-in and patio seating, with online takeout, and delivery via Doordash.
