Doux Cafe

Doux Cafe is a newly opened (February 2016) cafe in Houston. It is spacious, clean and neatly decorated. Doux Cafe is a to-go cafe for chocolate lovers, and for people who love crepes and waffles. I was greedy on my first visit because I ordered a brownie crepe and a waffle all for myself. I was alone in the cafe on a weekday late morning and I thoroughly enjoyed the quietness while I dug into my sweet treats.

The brownie crepe was awesome. I am not a big fan of brownie but the brownie tasted good with it being stuffed inside the crepe, and the crepe was coated with white chocolate, milk chocolate, and dark chocolate. I finished the crepe fast and furious!

The triple chocolate waffle was fantastic too! However, after a few bites, I tasted sour flour in the waffle. The manager’s timing could not be more than perfect. He asked how was my waffle and I gave him my feedback that it tasted sour. He was shocked and insisted that I should stop eating it. He snatched the plate away from me and threw it into the garbage bin despite my assurance to him that I was totally fine with it. He then made a new waffle for me and added a scoop of ice cream (additional scoop of ice cream costs $1.99) as a complimentary dish. The manager told me that their food is made fresh everyday and the sourness comes from a spray, which was used on the waffle machine. I was very grateful that he provided such good service. Many thumbs up!

My complimentary triple chocolate waffle with a scoop of Dreyer’s vanilla ice cream. No more sour taste!

I would definitely go back to Doux Cafe again and again and again to get my chocolate fix!

Sweet Paris (Crepe)

If you have not tried crepes from Sweet Paris, you are missing out a great deal! Sweet Paris has a good menu of savory crepes, breakfast crepes, and sweet crepes. The restaurant’s menu is on the wall just right in front of the door when you step in. The restaurant has good ambience, and they have a separate room for private functions. It is a good place for catch-up with friends over some crepes or have a mini birthday bash in the restaurant.

I settled on the Argentine dulce de leche (DDL) crepe as I needed something sweet after lunch. I did not make the wrong choice! The crepe was served hot with the DDL warm in the crepe too. The most satisfying part was to cut a small part of the crepe and I saw the DDL oozing out of the crepe! Oh my… It was just ooh la la! The crepe was soft and thin, and the DDL was smooth and sweet. It was perfect! I have a video showing the dulce de leche oozing out of the crepe when I cut it but I could not upload it here. I would definitely go back to Sweet Paris for more crepes!
