Ojo de Agua is a health-conscious, all-day cafe that offers authentic dishes using holistic ingredients. First opened in Mexico City, the cafe features breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as an extensive fresh juice menu. This May, the cafe is slated to open its first Texas location in Houston’s River Oaks neighborhood.
Incepted in Mexico City back in 1950, Ojo de Agua offers Mexican-inspired, fast-casual cuisine using high quality ingredients. Menu-wise, customers can enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner options at the all-day cafe as well as ceviches and fruit mixes.
Featured items include their Acai Bowls, Chilaquiles, Ranchero Eggs, Avocado Truffle Toast, Kale and Salmon Salad, Pesto and Protein Bowls, Lobster Grilled Cheese, Kobe Burger, and more. On the beverage side, customers can choose from micheladas, local craft beers, wine-based fruit cocktails, and a variety of mimosa options.
Their laid-back River Oaks outpost marks Ojo de Agua’s first location in Texas and only their second location in the United States – their first opened in Miami back in 2021. Much like the cuisine, the interior is heavily inspired by Mexican, more specifically Tulum, culture. Island rustic lighting fixtures, vibrant murals, suspended wicker chairs, and bohemian touches, give the cafe’s River Oaks space an open-air Mexican market vibe.
“We are excited to bring Ojo de Agua to River Oaks District, where our customers will experience an artisan inspired and health-conscious cuisine within a casual, laid-back atmosphere reminiscent of some of our favorite places in Mexico,” said The Festival Companies’ CEO Rosalind Schurgin, The District’s Management & Leasing Operator in a press release.
“Another essential part of the Ojo de Agua offering at River Oaks District is their specialty market featuring some of the restaurant’s favorite market essentials and produce for our guests to conveniently drop by and purchase.”
Ojo de Aqua opens at 4444 Westheimer Road (D-140) in River Oaks in Houston this May. Stay tuned for details on its store’s hours.
