Who said happy hour has to be limited to cocktails and small plates of savory foods? No one and thank goodness for that!

For those who crave more than a strong cocktail or the latest iced-cold brew on tap, there's good news. If you're looking for a different kind of scene for happy hour, one where you will find that satisfying fix for your sweet tooth, your sugar-filled dreams have come true.

Coffee shops aren't strangers to happy hours, but for bakeries and cafes, those hours have found a new home in Houston, especially in Houston's Little Asia (aka New Chinatown).

As if you really needed another reason to count down until clock-out time, below are a sampling of places offering affordable sweet and happy hours for the dessert-loving person.




Yannick Cafe and Bakery, the more upscale sister bakery of Olympic Chinese Bakery a few blocks down, serves baked goods of both the sweet and savory varieties. Many of the offerings are under a $1 but its their tiny cakes, which are mini masterpieces and are the true bargain.

Visit any upscale European-style bakery, or visit Central Market or select H-E-B's and their detailed mini desserts are pricey. At Yannick Cafe and Bakery, those cakes are under $4 and paired with a cup of American coffee, an afternoon tea anytime of the day for just $5.

Happy hour at Yannick is available daily from open to close. It's highly recommended to have cash on hand.

Visit between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on any day for Cafe la Tea's dessert happy hour. Select any beverage plus dessert for $6.50. It's a bargain compared to the $4.50 mini artisan desserts alone plus coffees, coffee drinks, smoothies, and other beverages are on average $4.
