Black Walnut is good. Service and food are good. Ambiance is good. I will continue to eat here. They finally have a large parking lot and that is fabulous!

We love Black Walnut and always enjoy it. We tried their new location and the quality is just as good. The ambiance, food, service, and location are perfect. I loved the Tex-Mex omelet and it was cooked to perfection.

I had heard about the Black Walnut Cafe from friends but never went because the parking lot was always full. Lots of places to choose from in the area, so we never bothered till now. This cafe has a wide variety to choose from. The procedure is simple--walk in, pick up a menu, decide what you want, walk up to... More

Can't miss trying the Black Walnut Cafe....it's always crowded and the reason is simple. The food is good. We just tried it for breakfast for the first time although we've been going for years (now in their new location farther north off Research Forest) and were very pleased. Broad menu and I've get to be let down by anything.....I do... More

My only issue with Black Walnut used to be the parking! Luckily, they recently moved to a new and improved location and that is no longer an issue. If you like brunch on Sunday, this is a great place! Their patio is a great place to hang out on nice days. Menu includes something for everyone.

Tiffany, one of the cashiers always remembers us by name and makes us feel very welcome. The service is quick and the coffee and fresh juice are excellent. They also make a great bloody mary. The outdoor seating is nice in the Spring and makes a great spot for people watching. The eggs benedict is one of the best in... More

One of the best "casual" places in The Woodlands. The food is excellent, but you have to stand in line to place your order and pick it up. This can be a bit annoying. The noise level is high and at brunch/lunch, people are packed in like sardines

I have been there a couple of times due to friends wanting to go. Every time I went there was a insanely large unorganized line with no place to sit while waiting. By the time you wait in line and for your food an hour and a half has gone by. So if you are in a time crunch, avoid... More
