    Unfortunately my experience was skewed by the poor service my mother and I received via the tremendously rude waiter. However, upon inspection of the other two waitresses I could see that the Shade Cafe had better employees. Maybe he was having a bad day, though that does not condone the treatment we received. At any rate the chef updates the menu daily which is a nice change from most cafes where if you go often enough you will end up with a "favorite" you get every time. This spot sort of forces you to try something different. Now, I had the Mediterranean Dish which had maybe the best hummus I've experienced stateside. However, my plate was a bit more pricey than what I received for the price. We had lunch there so there were mainly business types with laptops and lunch mini-meetings going on around us and therefore was somewhat difficult really to take in the whole experience. At any rate, if you end up on 19th Street out there in Houston, it isn't a MUST GO spot as there are other cafes with much more charm, but I'd try it to say you did.
