Great little cafe - Edit

I had the Mumbai panini and really enjoyed it. I had the sunset to drink, it’s good but SWEET. I also grabbed some treats from sinful bakery while visiting 😍

My favorite spot - Edit

I love this place. They have empanadas, paninis for lunch, and daily dinner specials. They carry Sinfull Bakery cinnamon rolls and cookies, and cupcakes but you'd have to ask which ones are vegan. Drinks are great; their chai is made in-house, along with their pistachio milk for their lattes. The owner, Deepak, is friendly and the prices are very inexpensive. He prices them way because that's all the people in his community can afford. The place is a little run down but that's part of the charm.

Cute Little Spot! - Edit

I wandered into Doshi House for lunch after hitting Sinfull Bakery up right down the road. The lunch menu is pretty small, but what I ordered was fantastic (The Mumbai Street sandwich I think it was called). Both myself (vegan) and boyfriend (non vegan) ordered the same thing and we both enjoyed it a lot. Ton's of flavor and if you are a fan of Indian food, you will love that sandwich. It comes with Cheese, but if you ask them to make it vegan they will accommodate. I also tried the black bean & sweet potato empanada which was really good! Sandwich came with plantain chips which I also really enjoyed.

For snacks, they did have an assortment of Sinfull Bakery vegan items which is awesome! Definitely don't leave without trying something from there.

Their lattes were great...almond milk is an option for us vegans.

The vibe at this coffee house is really chill. It was comfortable and cozy and artsy. Lots of people on their computers and iPads working. Music was really chill too.

I can't wait to try out the dinner menu! Based on my experience I would 100% return in the near future.

Pros: Chill & relaxing Atmosphere , lots of vegan & vegetarian options, good food

Doshi House, mostly for drinks but some great vegan food options - Edit

Vegetarian coffeehouse with small lunch menu and rotating evening meal. I have had their vegan sandwiches and the Not so butter chicken. Everything always taste great, but it is a little expensive for the portions.

Pros: Excellent food

Cons: Parking lot

Hard to find - Edit

The address on the website somehow sends you to the opposite direction, but all you have to do is call and they will happily give you directions. The food was AMAZING and customer service was so wonderful. The prices aren't bad either. I really enjoyed it and I will be going back again!

Pros: Great food , Comfortable setting inside , Friendly workers

Cons: The area it's at

Fun Kitschy Atmosphere- Serious food! - Edit

I visited Doshi cafe yesterday with my boyfriend who is not vegan. I should preface by saying this is not in a great area of town but once inside Doshi House, this matters not. The decor is charmingly mismatched and the local art displayed is beautiful. The staff is incredible friendly including the owner Deepak, who was very hands on with the business and a complete delight to interact with. My boyfriend and I both got the special of the day: a vegan alternative of butter chicken. It was served with a perfectly seasoned garlic pita and the meal melted in your mouth. I enjoyed it so much that I ordered a second one to go. I also partook of the empanadas and while smaller than I envisioned they were also quite tasty. The highlight of everything though was the cinnamon rolls that we brought home with us for today's breakfast. We couldn't resist having a taste last night and they were so delicious that we actually polished them off immediately- my boyfriend still can't believe they were vegan. Overall a very worthwhile stop! Enjoy! :)

Pros: delicious food, charming atmosphere, friendly staff

Totally Chill. - Edit

I Love the artichoke panini, soooooooooo good, but not just that the atmosphere is amazing. I feel like I'm home, it's comfy as heck. And their plantain chips are yummy and so are they're soups and cupcakes.

Pros: sofas, Vegan food, awesome people

Cons: parking lot is a bit bumpy, wish they had more food options.

the perfect coffee shop - Edit

I visited this place several times during my stay in Houston. After one stop in, I was in love. This place has a great vibe--good music, ample space, and a comfortable atmosphere. The owner is really friendly, as is all the staff. Delicious beverages and food. I had a salad (which was delicious) and my girlfriend tried two versions of the vegan empanadas, which she raved about. I very highly recommend this place. It's my favorite coffee shop in Houston, hands down. Unlike many other cafes, the vegan options are stellar. They also seem to host some awesome events. Check them out and I swear you'll never regret it.

Pros: great atmosphere, great food, very friendly

Cons: none.

Great food and atmosphere - Edit

I luckily found this gem while visiting Houston for my first time. I currently live in Philadelphia but will be moving to the Houston area soon. The food and smoothie I order was excellent and the service was great and personable. The decor inside was very relaxing and cozy. Definitely a good place to read a book or work on other studies (I think they have free WiFi). I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves great tasting food and smoothies especially if you are a vegan or vegetarian. I will be visiting again when I move to Houston, keep up the great food and service!

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly people, Fair prices
