The restaurant manager remembers my specific requests during the booking on OpenTable, she served us herself and made it a very pleasant experience. The owner of the restaurant was around and had a friendly chat with us, told us about the story how his wife started this restaurant. He mentioned that there is a plan to open the second floor and they would like to turn it into a greenhouse, I'm looking forward to having afternoon tea in the greenhouse next year. Cafe Poetes is a gem!

tea at Cafe Poetes is just a delight. I always feel transported to a European street instead of hustling mid town
I do feel the price point is high---a place for special outings

The food is not that’s good and it’s overpriced! I wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

Came here for Easter afternoon tea and I loved it! I love the Paris feels of cozy bookstore interior and the beautiful garden patio outside. Also for the afternoon tea, you have to select the times which is special because there are no other people coming in and out during that time. The servers are attentive and sweet. I also like how the place is quiet and not too loud. The tea is perfect & pastries are delicious. It's so rare to find cafe that sell meringue cookies here in houston and this place does. Overall great experience and I'd love to be back for anniversary or other holidays.

This was a lovely experience. My mother and I took three of her granddaughters for high tea. The food was delicious. My only complaint was that it was a little pricey at $300 with tip for five of us, two having the children's portion. We were told that it was a special Valentine's menu, but the total was still surprising. Even so, we will go back again.

the high tea experience was just delightful. so pleased that we could make a reservation as that was not possible during my last visit. Houston is not New York and I was stunned and a bit insulted that the management wanted my credit card information in order to hold the reservation. by the very fact that I made a reservation was proof I wanted to enjoy afternoon tea with my dear friends. it felt a bit insulting.
