This market was amazing! You couid do regular shopping or you grab a meal to eat there or food to go. So many yummy middle eastern options and perfect to grab and walk around to the local parks. I had a wrap (like a gyro) with hummus and potatoes. The salad bar looked amazing too snd so many beautiful desserts.

I purchase several pastries for a 60th birthday celebration and spent over $60 on pre sliced selection of cakes and pastries. Most were beautiful and decent except the Hummingbird cake tasted like cardboard and the Key Lime Pie yuck! The nice young lady told me to come on Sunday so they would be fresh made every day! Not these two totally yuck and they are not cheap! Better stick to the hot plate during the week taste a lot better! Their Salmon is out of this world yummy! Too bad I spent a nice occasion to try these pastries there! They need to improve their Bakery big time!

The place has a wide range of groceries from around the world and mostly the Middle East. It is very clean and organized. Staff are friendly and welcoming most the time, while cashiers are not. They do prefer a small shopping cart or a handful items over a full cart.

I try to get to this place whenever I'm in Houston. The store sells unique and delicious foods -- fun for nibbling and great for gifts. Their peach/apricot loose-leaf tea is the best I can find anywhere, and their orange truffle coffee is amazing. Also try their pastries and their Turkish delight.

Nice addition to the heart of Houston to get some groceries. Many apartments around this address so probably why it survives. Things a bit pricey but one pays for convenience

We ate here on a Saturday morning with choices from their "brunch" menu. It was decent food for the price but nothing that would make us go back when there are other options nearby. Service was a little slow due to under staffing I would guess. There just didn't appear to be enough servers for the amount of customers

An interesting and fun place to shop. Best pita in town and a very nice bakery with an interesting variety. They do baklava very well. The deli and prepared foods are very very good.

The hotel recommended the spot for a quick breakfast. The food was delicious and the staff was efficient. Beautiful location and great for grabbing food to stash in your room. Wish I'd had more time to explore.
