When rain stopped my chance of playing tennis and there was no one else at home to keep me company (bar my puppies) I thought I would go and find a healthy breakfast option to entertain myself. What could be healthier than going to a local health food shop that also has a restaurant?
“The Most Famous Health Food Store in Texas” – A Moveable Feast is an independent, family owned natural café and health food store that serves the community by specializing in top quality natural food products. A large and loyal clientele shop at A Moveable Feast because they have confidence in the integrity of the product selection and personalized service
I have visited this restaurant a few times over the many years that I have lived in this neighborhood. The sign on the entry door still makes me smile.
With its tiled floor, abundance of wood, metal accents, and exposed industrial style ceiling for some reason it makes me feel like I’m in a little Colorado ski town. Seating options consisted of booths, various sized tables and chairs, and a huge wooden table that could seat a very large group. With its wifi, it makes it a great option for those wishing to do a little work while dining or maybe even a location for a book club meeting.
There is a central island with glasses, flatware, and an abundance of hot sauces so that diners can help themselves to supplies. Each table has napkins and other basic supplies.
A small outdoor courtyard also offers a few tables for those that don’t mind braving the Houston weather. The scenery isn’t that great as it overlooks the carpark but it is a little hidden behind railings and some greenery.
This is a self-service restaurant. You place your order at the main counter and receive an electronic buzzer. The flashing lights and loud noise the buzzer makes informs you when your food is on the counter for collection.
The menu has vegetarian and vegan options but with meat substitute items so that any carnivores don’t feel left out. The restaurant boasts that they purify all the water used for cooking and drinking. All dishes are prepared in the healthiest way possible with nothing fried. Organic produce is featured whenever available.
The menu is huge so there really should be something to please everyone. I visited for breakfast and tried the breakfast enchiladas at $7.99. The large plate full to overflowing with food is certainly a Texas-sized portion. Scrambled egg enchiladas were smothered with jack cheese and a low fat red chile sauce. Salsa, back beans, guacamole, pico de gallo, and low fat chicken sausages rounded out the meal. For vegetarians, the chicken sausage could be substituted with fat free boca.
The restaurant does not serve espresso coffee drinks so instead I ordered a cup of drip coffee. I was directed to help myself from the three coffee flasks on the main counter. My options were a Columbian blend, Texas Pecan, or a decaffeinated coffee. I opted for the Columbian blend and was so happy to drink a deliciously smooth coffee fusion.
At the main counter is a large display case that held an assortment of cookies and muffins. There are two standup refrigerated display units that are labeled as Take home and Grab and Go. Additionally, the restaurant also offers catering and details can be found on their website.
It seems like this restaurant is a good option if you are looking for vegetarian and vegan menu offerings in a town that tends to cater more for meat eaters. The relaxed dining style makes it an easy choice to just pop in and enjoy a casual meal.
