Welcome

The Little Yellow House

The Ivy & James is a casual, elegant neighborhood eatery snugly nestled into The Little Yellow House in Bellaire on the grounds of Evelyn’s Park. 


The inviting indoor space is a bright, window-lit dining room, with a convenient coffee and smoothie bar, and easy grab and go counter. The unique outdoor spaces include a garden patio, a covered pavilion and a lively beer garden under the century old oak trees of Evelyn’s Park.

Our Concept

The Ivy & James celebrates the essential entwinement of community and nature, weaving a passion for sustainably-sourced food with inventive menus that can be enjoyed all day by park-goers.  


The Ivy & James proudly serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, brunch, ready-to-go picnic baskets, and selections from our curated wine and beer program. All served in a casual environment without sacrificing any of the quality.


We invite you to enjoy some great food, an ice cold craft beer or a glass of wine in our urban gathering place, yet in touch with nature, set in the heart of Houston.
