Nestled in the European mecca of Houston Midtown on West Gray, Café Poêtes is an ode to classic Parisian glamour. Our elegant space is perfect for enjoying French revisited dishes with a twist, crafted cocktails and sharable plates on our cobblestone patio with a relaxing trickling fountain and undeniable charm.
Open your eyes and you’ll see Paris
Envision a marvelous, faraway place where “tout n’est qu’ordre et beauté, luxe, calme et volupté (all is but order and beauty, luxury, calm and voluptuousness)” – Charles Baudelaire.
We believe that, in today’s world, there is still a place for poets like Baudelaire and Victor Hugo, artisanal cooking, French hospitality and elegance. And you shouldn’t have to travel across the world or back in time to find it. That belief is what drove us to create Café Poêtes.
Food is a way to give tenderness to people
