Pam Ennis is a certified Nutrition Counselor, a Natural Food Chef, and regularly contributes to healthy-living publications such as Livestrong. Oh yea, and she founded her own business, Ylive Juice Bar. Pam takes a very friendly, straightforward philosophy toward helping her clients get healthier. "Progress, not perfection," she says.

Pam and her staff provide one-on-one consulting with every client who walks through the door of her Juice Bar. The goal is for clients to educate themselves on the benefits and possibilities that come from a juice cleanse. Outside of the consultation, Pam even maintains a Cleanse Computer Station, which clients can use to quickly reference different plans and choose the best one for their lifestyle. She also knows that a juice cleanse can be challenging, so she alleviates some of the difficulties by delivering juices to clients at their homes, offices, or super-secret cleanse yurts.

No one can say this coffee bar and deli is lacking in confidence. In fact, no one can say they’re lacking in much of anything. The soups, sandwiches, and salads live up to the café’s self-assured name, with chefs preparing their made-from-scratch fare from fresh ingredients, such as ciabatta bread, sliced avocado, and signature chicken salad. Fresh cookies and homemade soups make suitable companions for made-to-order sandwiches, and slices of house-made pecan pie tame unruly sweet teeth faster than a retainer lined with cake batter.

The Three Faces of Empire Café

European Ambiance

Empire's decor wouldn’t seem out of place at any bustling café in Italy or France. Starry light fixtures cast a golden glow across its interior, and twinkling bulbs parade around an ample awning that cloaks the sidewalk patio in shade. These elegant flourishes are thanks to the café’s founder, a well-traveled Hollywood film producer who opened Empire when he was unable to find a decent cup of coffee during a visit to Houston.

International Café Fare

An Italian thread snakes through Empire’s menu, which showcases paninis, pastas, and even pizzas. But in the morning, it's all about the Italian-style toast. The café's signature creation—and most popular dish—features rustic Italian bread topped with mixed berries. But a visit to Empire, like any Parisian or Viennese café worth its salt, wouldn't be complete without indulging in a pastry. That’s why there are two dozen kinds of cake available, some of which you can hear whispering your name from the display case.

Specialty Coffees

Empire brews up caffeinated beverages in many forms, including custom-roasted coffees, espresso drinks, and cappuccinos. There are also 18 specialty drinks including the popular Milky Way, an iced espresso blended with caramel, hazelnut, and chocolate syrups. Of-age patrons can also sip on coffee cordials such as the Java Genie, a mixture of Kahlua, brandy, double espresso, steamed milk, and whipped cream.

When it comes to serving its fresh, locally roasted coffee, fruit smoothies, freshly pressed paninis, and homemade soups, Fioza Cafe asks only one thing of its visitors: come thirsty or hungry. The coffee and tapioca bar opened in the heart of Meyerland in 2007, and ever-since, it has been a respite for anyone who needs a quick pick-me-up or a comfy place to re-write their diary in Pig Latin. From flavored lattes to milk teas topped with tapioca pearls, the neighborhood shop strives to serve drinks that suit every taste. And to keep things interesting, the cafe also hosts many special events, from performances by local high school bands to open mic nights and latte art competitions.

With plush leather chairs and a bookshelf brimming with well thumbed volumes, Laura’s Cafe & Tea House could easily fool visitors into believing they’ve entered the cozy living room of a close friend. The shop’s affable staff reflects the same sense of warm hospitality, provisioning leisure hours with tasty food and hot drinks. While relaxing, guests can hush growling tummies with Southern-style dishes such as the rodeo burger slathered in barbeque sauce, or the breakfast country plate with biscuits and a choice of ham, bacon, or sausage. Coffees and teas fight fatigue with jolts of caffeine.
