This is a cute lunch spot near Rice University. They have indoor picnic style tables for lunch or they will pack up a "picnic box lunch" for you to take to the park. This includes a sandwich, cookie, chips and fruit. Their chocolate chip cookies are divine. The bags of parmesan crackers (by the window) were a big hit as a Thanksgiving appetizer this year.

Neighborhood standard near Rice University and the vast Houston Medical Center. If your tired of the restaurant atmosphere and would enjoy a great lunch, Picnic is you place.
Fresh and fun

Nothing fancy about this place. Got a picnic-style sandwich. It was made fresh and fast. Only issue I had was seemed kind of small for the price I paid. Other than that, the food was quality and fresh.

Great place to relax and have a great sandwich with a pretty damn good cookie. The simple cuisine, makes choosing your meal a breeze. Great bread makes a great sandwich filled with quality meats.

Went here for a coffee with my wife. She ordered a cappuccino and I ordered an espresso. My wife's drink was almost all milk with almost no foam and my espresso was like watered down diner coffee because he didn't tamp the grounds. I went to get a drip coffee instead and it was cold. Also the tables at the otherwise empty shop were all left sticky and messy while the guy behind the counter played on his phone. Long story short, this place resembles a McDonalds with way worse but more expensive coffee.
