Hard to be the strawberry tart - it's really good and I never get tired of it. We go just for dessert sometimes and it's so good. I like the regular one but the chocolate one is good too. Can't wait to return

Excellent and varied menu from great brick oven pizzas to fantastic sandwiches and salads to excellent entrées like steaks and pork dishes.

First time to eat at Cafe Eccell since they relocated from the north gate area. Very impressive experience. Great waitress. Excellent corn chowder. The seating is spread out so you aren't on top of each other, and the tables are located in three different areas...More

Good location close to the A&M campus. Their bar is roomy with plenty of space, so it's ideal for an after-work get-together. Great food too!

Super deals for happy hour, love the bar area. Great drinks (the Puro Verde margarita is awesome!), good pizza and flatbreads and great guacamole.

Previously a favorite. This time service terrible. At noon out of sweet tea. Caesar salad horrible- tomato basil soup poor--no soup spoon--if wanted bread or crackers had to pay extra.

Had a 3 course business dinner here , and found it to be a more upmarket place. Very good food cooked to close to perfect, and sizeable portions with attentive service. Good place for a bit of a 'special ' occasion event.

Came to visit the Bush Presidential library and wanted a non-chain restaurant and a decent glass of wine for lunch. This fit the bill perfectly. I had the Mediterranean plate and my travel partner enjoyed the soup and grilled cheese. Nice friendly service, quiet enough...More

3 weeks ago, we ate at Cafe Eccel and my wife ordered the Napa Plate off their 'sharables menu'. It was excellent and quite a bit of food presented nicely. Remembering that, yesterday, while in College Station, my wife & I ordered the same Napa...More
