Three more reasons to ride METRO


Now you have three more reasons to ride METRO: coffee, crawfish and eyeglasses.

Three of our latest partners in our Rider Rewards program offer discounts anyone can enjoy, simply by showing your METRO Q® Fare Card or any other fare item.

Caffe Di Firenze, at 901 Prairie St., offers top-quality coffee in an elegant setting, evoking the iconic cafes of Florence in the 1800s. This pastry and panini shop sells made-from-scratch organic pastries and paninis, including vegan and vegetarian choices. It brews 100 percent Arabica coffee, shipping green coffee from the farm to Turin, Italy, for roasting under Italian quality control. Then it's shipped fresh to H-town.

Get a taste of Italy at 10 percent off by showing your Q Card.

Over in Midtown, dine on free crawfish on weekends through June 1 at Christian's Tailgate Bar & Grill. The eatery offers an extensive menu – from fajita quesadillas to salads to pulled pork sliders and buffalo shrimp. The Midtown location at 2000 Bagby St. is offering a 10 percent discount to all Q Card holders.

Finally, if you can't read the menu without donning a pair of glasses, head on over to Eye Theory at 3510 S. Main St. The shop says it likes to wow customers with world-class service and the latest eyewear technology and luxury brands.  Its doctors are certified optometric glaucoma specialists, and it accepts most insurance plans. Defray your costs by $25 by simply showing a METRO Q® Card.

These three businesses are the latest in a slew of Rider Rewards partners that are part of our customer appreciation program. Our partners offering discounts include museums, a hair salon and a city tour company.

 Ride METRO, and reward yourself as you discover unique businesses at a discount.
