Siphon Coffee co-owner Michael Caplan is known for the eponymous brewing method of his Montrose café. You can bet there's vacuum-brewed java at his latest endeavor, Cavo, which opened two weeks ago at 3773 Richmond Avenue in the Greenway Plaza area. But with the involvement of chef Adrian de la Cerda, formerly of Ladybird and Weights + Measures, coffee is only part of the appeal.

Besides a menu heavy on both sweet and savory toasts, as well as sandwiches and salads, diners in a hurry can grab overnight oats, scones, cookies and panna cotta, all made in-house. Happy hour starts uncommonly early—2 p.m. every weekday—and runs untill 7 p.m., featuring $3 beer and $5 wine. But there's an even better deal on weekends. Bottomless mimosas are $10 all day on both Saturday and Sunday. What should you pair it with? Click through the photos to see.

(Full disclosure: Michael Caplan is the husband of Houstonia publisher Diane Caplan.)
