Since I happened to be in the Cactus Hotel this morning, I thought I'd stop in and have lunch. I almost wish I hadn't. I ordered "The Bronte", which was supposed to be a hot roast beef sandwich, with mashed potatoes. The meat appeared to be some kind of pressed something or other, probably originally frozen. It had very little... More

This was our first visit to the cafe. It apparently is part of the old Cactus Hotel. Rustic/eclectic decor. Server wasn't the best and we were wishing we had the other server who was really tending to her customers. Food, however, was great! I had a panini with turkey, ham, bacon, avocado, lettuce and a specialty mayo. Husband had the... More

Decorated with a rustic, western flair, the decor matches the food which is dishes are named after San Angelo and surrounding towns. It is located in the historic Cactus Hotel. Wander on into the building to enjoy the opulent space.

My wife and I are retired professionals who are touring Texas looking for hidden delights. We are in San Angelo this week and found this place and were so pleased. Friendly people, great food and a great look. Try the butter milk it is great. Great place

I think their menu was a cute idea because it is listed by all the little towns around San Angelo. I went there with 3 cousins,2 from out of town and they liked it also. The food was good and so was the service.

A great little sandwich shop by day, the Mesquite Bean Cafe changes to Bean on the Bayou on Thursday - Saturday nights, offering up their interpretation of Cajun food. Although the concept is great, the dishes that reign supreme in South Louisiana lose something in the Bean on the Bayou kitchen. Upon arrival, they bring out boiled, spicy red potatoes... More

Another home cooking style restaurant that's very common in San Angelo. I've had some thing I've liked but nothing that wow'd me. The least favority was the chili dog. I was really in the mood for a good chili dog but when it arrived with beans in the chili, my mood took a nose dive. Beans do not belong in... More

My table of 4 arrived and ordered about 10 minutes sooner than 3 other tables, one of which had 7 people. We ordered two identical salads and two sandwiches, pretty simple. Our food arrived about 10 minutes after each of the 3 tables were chin-deep in their meals. Portions were tiny. Probably the worst part about this restaurant was the... More

It is located in the historic Cactus Hotel. Wait staff is very nice. I was in for breakfast and the menu was very limited. Just burritos type offerings or biscuits and gravy.
