Well if the test of any place is " would I return?" Then this place is a winner, but it's more along the lines of, for me anyway, the positives outweighs the downsides. So what's bad about the place, well it has a long queue and you have to wait in line to order before you can get a table,... More

This adorable and quaint restaurant is hidden off a busy street and nestled in a nursery. The atmosphere is right out of the pages of a Pottery Barn catalog. The food is unique and delicious. Be sure to have a warm cookie for dessert as well. I've eaten at many restaurants in Houston and this place is truly a gem.

My daughter and I had brunch here on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in March. The line you have to wait in to order your food was long, but they had a small bar that you could order mimosas or brunch cocktails that you could sip on while you waited. My chorizo and manchego pizza with a fried egg on top... More

I have lost count of how many times I have been to Tiny Boxwoods, Their coffee is great & they have a fabulous selection of food on their menu. Very gorgeous decor! Make sure you get there early as they generally have a line all the way out the door during busy periods

A beautiful little spot in the city. We loved our breakfast here as a family, though didn't anticipate paying so much. We should have done more research on that. Prices aren't listed on the menu or online. The food was fantastic and the service was great, just not a place for people on a budget. :)

We live in Houston and have dined at Tiny's on many occasions but my most recent lunchtime experience just flat irritated me. The atmosphere is definitely what always draws us to the restaurant; the outside dining in the garden atmosphere is absolutely delightful. My irritation came from the reminder that Tiny Boxwoods does not post prices on their menu. I... More

We recently had lunch at Tiny Boxwood Cafe. What a surprise it was to walk in this beautiful setting with a nice grassy Courtyard and tables surrounding it. The setting is perfect. You can hear French music in the background and beautiful vegetation all the way around you. The food was delicious. The surroundings made the food even better. On... More
