I have lost count of how many times I have been to Tiny Boxwoods, Their coffee is great & they have a fabulous selection of food on their menu. Very gorgeous decor! Make sure you get there early as they generally have a line all the way out the door during busy periods

A beautiful little spot in the city. We loved our breakfast here as a family, though didn't anticipate paying so much. We should have done more research on that. Prices aren't listed on the menu or online. The food was fantastic and the service was great, just not a place for people on a budget. :)

We live in Houston and have dined at Tiny's on many occasions but my most recent lunchtime experience just flat irritated me. The atmosphere is definitely what always draws us to the restaurant; the outside dining in the garden atmosphere is absolutely delightful. My irritation came from the reminder that Tiny Boxwoods does not post prices on their menu. I... More

We recently had lunch at Tiny Boxwood Cafe. What a surprise it was to walk in this beautiful setting with a nice grassy Courtyard and tables surrounding it. The setting is perfect. You can hear French music in the background and beautiful vegetation all the way around you. The food was delicious. The surroundings made the food even better. On... More

My day began with a delightful cup of coffee and the most amazing croissant with the tastiest jam. Best of all it began with a friend introducing me to this delightful café. The service was friendly and prompt. The grounds, you have to visit. We sat out in the garden amongst trees and birds singing. Being from Cape Breton, Nova... More

We enjoyed brunch in a lovely garden next to a nursery on Sunday morning. The menu is superb. The service is polite and gracious. Great for family and friends. Can get busy after 11 am.

This is such a lovely restaurant. Its really better than average, but not quite very good. It's warm and inviting with an imaginative menu. We sat at the bar and the service was ok, which can be the downside of sitting at the bar. They have a decent cocktail list and wine selection. The food ranges from appetizers to main... More

The quality of food has gone down drastically from couple of years ago. This is evident even by the smell, as you get close to the counter to order. the place needs a major make over specially the kitchen area. The servers and the guy behind the counter are disheveled. You pay tip after waiting in line and order, but... More
