Cafe Eccell recently moved to a new location. It is now at 4401 South Texas Ave., Bryan. It is a much larger restaurant now and can accommodate more patrons. It did lose some ambiance due to being in a larger room with more light, but the decor is comfortable and the service as great as ever. The entrees were a... More

The new location (in an old Luby's) definitely allows for more people. Food and service were great. I asked for the kitchen to cook my food with little salt, and they were very accommodating. I really appreciated that.

In a smaller town you would not expect to find this gem, but it is there and fantastic! The service is very attentive and the menu with rotating options like the mashed potatoes of the week and the bread pudding of the week. With an excellent selection of beers and cocktails, this is a great place to take a date... More

Went to College Station to visit our son and his fiance who are attending school down there. They mentioned that this could be a good place for lunch, so off we went. Upon entering, we were promptly greeted and sat at a nice table, corner view. Lots of windows with great natural lighting. The service was prompt and very personal.... More

Great food, really nice atmosphere, good service. This is one of the few places in Bryan/College Station where you can have a nice meal somewhere that feels unique. It's not another cookie cutter place with the same old same old food. I am a big fan of locally owned places that have good tasting food with atmosphere that has good... More

This was our first time at the new location on Texas Ave. in the old Luby's building. The bar had an excellent selection of beers and had an upscale feel. I had a filet for dinner. We were in a large group and basically didn't get much say in how the steak was cooked--I like rare, but got more of... More

Enjoyed a fabulous meal yesterday at Cafe Eccell in their new location. Costa and his staff provided a wonderful experience to us as we celebrated Bosses Day and Jane's birthday! Everyone was thoroughly pleased with their meal. The crab cakes, pizza, and strawberry tart were my favorite.

Cafe Eccell is no longer located on 101 Church Street in College Station; it is now housed in the old Luby's location on Texas Avenue in Bryan. The new location offers a more spacious venue and better parking. The food and service continue to be good. When crowded, the place can be a little loud. Reservations are recommended.

Always thought this was one of the premier restaurants in town....but this was my first visit to find out. We sat in a table in the bar area just before a football game. Not a fancy place, casual. I think our server was fairly new. The food was ok. Greek pizza: good. Tortilla soup: ok. Lime/thai shank: very good. Mahi... More

My wife and I met some of our friends here for dinner and drinks. It had a very fun atmosphere and we had a great time overall, though it was a little on the pricey side for the quality of food that we got. The grille cheese was the saving grace, highly recommended. I also tried the gyro which was... More
