Viennoiserie and Luscious Pastries at Common Bond Café

in Dining & Nightlife by

On a busy corner in Montrose sits Common Bond Café, a slice of heaven for everything from espresso to delicate pastries. The interior is industrial chic, paired with gorgeous natural light and wood accents. Common Bond’s offerings range the gamut, but all of it is fresh and prepped by noteworthy chefs. The perfect word for this place? Tempting.

If you’re looking for an on-the-go breakfast, the viennoiserie (think croissant and kouign-amann) are some of Houston’s best, and the pastries (like kugelhopf, fruit tarts, and Nutella cupcakes) are divine. Their espresso is equally top-notch, and pairs perfectly with a table on the sunny patio.

If you have time to sit, indulge in their breakfast, lunch, or dinner specialties. You’re in good hands with café favorites like the Egg on a Roll (eggs, aioli, white cheddar, house ham, sesame roll), plus a recently-introduced array of flatbreads, tartines, and sandwiches. Take it from us—the food tastes as fabulous as it looks.

Although Common Bond can get busy, your experience will be worth the wait. Enjoy this Montrose gem Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
