This was my second visit to the Café and again, WONDERFUL. Wait staff so polite and gave us the history briefly. The atmosphere is so pleasant, the dining room is beautiful and well kept, quiet even when people start to come in. Our lunches were outstanding as well as appetizing to the eye! We will be back.

This has been the best place I have eaten at for YEARS, if you are planning a trip west of Houston you must stop in. You can only have lunch so plan accordingly, you will not be disappointed.

This is one of my mom's and my favorite places to eat. Special enough to make the drive to take out of town guests. Everything we've tried was excellent. However, my all-time favorite is the signature Mesibov salad.

The developer of this wonderful institution wanted to make their beautiful nursery and shop a destination by adding a fine restaurant - she certainly achieved that.

I'm giving it a 5, not because it would be at the service level of a 4 or 5-star restaurant, but because for what they do, this place is most impressive. The work is done by a team of dedicated employees who simply find its a good place to work, and the residents for whom is is a very big... More

Attended a wedding reception here. Great Venue. Many small places to have quiet conversations to catch up with old friends and large areas to gather for a dance and main dinner. The gardens and nursery also make for nice little get away to catch a breathe of fresh air. Food was very good and staff was helpful and very friendly.... More

Went here with a group of 80 year olds to celebrate my mothers birthday. Food was great. My salad was wrong and they fixed it right away with many, many apologies. The employees are living and working at Brookwood. It is a community for adults with disabilities. So charming and nice. I would come here again and again, if I... More

Went there just after Christmas with a young relative who had never heard of the place or been there. Had a great lunch, we enjoyed visiting the gift shop and the garden center. Food was great, service excellent.

Large restaurant seating area, looks out on their nursery. A little pricey with entrees from $12 to $16. Lunch choices were varied, so something for everyone; we had a grilled shrimp on salad, Atlantic salmon and veggies on pita, and I had the hamburger. The burger was a 5, the fries, 3-4; fries were a mix of fried sweet potato... More
