“Birthday breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

I would give this place an Excellent rating, but I ordered Eggs Benedict and the Hollandaise sauce wasn't as lemony as I like. Other than that, this very busy café was perfect for our occasion. Varied menu, reasonable prices, plenty of room both inside and out and very good food. No complaints from any of the eight people in our party, The orange juice was freshly squeezed which was unusual.

“A hidden Gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

The perfect breakfast place, Black Walnut is a brilliantly cozy cafe with mouthwatering food choices.
The decor of the place is very artistic and has a warm inviting feel to it. The food( mainly omelettes, sandwiches) is very appetizing and hearty. The prices are amazingly low for the taste, quality and experience. They have a variety of iced teas(peach, mango..etc).
The Gellato is divine- especially the coconut and tiramisu.

Wonderful place to sit back , relax and have a nice brunch w/ Gellato and enjoy a lazy Sunday afternoon.

“Great place BUT noisy!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

This is such a fun place...high end cozy casual. Fresh food and great atmosphere make this one of my top places in the Woodlands! There are two things that you have to accept in order to keep going back...one is the lack of parking (it's CRAZY during rush hours!) and the noise level (super noisy to the point that my husband said he doesn't enjoy his time there because of the noise). They say restaurants make it noisy to get turn over. If that's true...that's sad because this is such a great place! Because of the noise level though, it's not a place where I meet friends because we know we can't hear each other. The food and atmosphere are awesome though!!

“Nice cafe with good variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We've gone to the Black Walnut Cafe for breakfast and lunch and have not been disappointed. Their french toast is delicious and they have a good variety of sandwiches, drinks, salads, and other offerings. For those for whom it is the first time visiting this location, the menus are generally by the entrance, but you order and pay for your food in the back of the restaurant directly opposite the door. You will then be given a buzzer to let you know when your food is ready to get picked up (your food does not get brought out to you). They also have gelato and desserts for those that prefer to have a smaller meal.
