dinner was great.....veal, steak and chicken fried steak with great service and wine and amazing desserts. I was not the least bit hungry but it was the best gravy on chicken fried steak I have EVER had....except mine. Brunch menu looks best in town. Can't wait to go back for brunch and lunch.

First visit- excellent first choice. Friendly staff, nice ambiance. Quick service and fast food- great for my lunch break. Ordered the special for the day- lobster tacos! Exchanged the black bean soup for waffle fries. Great food- will be back! Full after one taco and half the portion of my fries!

Yesterday, following a very stressful morning, for lunch I had an excellent margarita, followed by the quiche of the day (spinach and mushroom), and an absolutely spectacular salad of raisins, spinach, pecans, with some wonderful dressing over it. My 2nd choice was the chicken salad, which I could have had with the quiche, but I thought not- it did sound... More

Stopped in for lunch and ordered the fish and chips. The flounder was perfectly cooked, flaky and delicious. Their waffle fries are excellent and the iced tea was good and tasted freshly brewed. Always a good experience.

This place is excellent! I dined on the house meat loaf just a great meal. My darling wife had the seafood special the red snapper which she proclaimed superb! The daughter had the filet, a cut with a fork tender tasteful repast! The service was outstanding! A great bistro in the renovated Medical district on magnolia. Highly recommend!

So happy to find this quaint little café. My client Norbert White, CEO of Samaritan House referred me there for an outing with my mom! We had the lobster bites OMG so good, and their famous chicken salad! Oh my. You have to try it. And there is a darling little bakery right across the street!

One of my favorite places for a work day lunch. Soups are the best... limited daily choices but all have been very very good. Something on the menu for everyone. The BLT with avocado is popular and the waffle fries are absolutely decadent.

Comfortable, nice place. Menu was solid. we were there for brunch and we ended up going with chicken fried steak and eggs Benedict between the two of us. Portions were large and service was first rate. Nothing to really wow us but overall very very solid and worth a visit.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Cat City. We sat on the outdoor patio and took advantage of the happy hour drinks and appetizers special. The Bruschetta and Beef Carpaccio were both very nice, especially for the $5 charge and we enjoyed $3 craft tap beers (Stella and Rahr Iron Thistle). The spinach salad delivered a nice flavor profile as... More
