While waiting for the light to change at the intersection of Houston Avenue and Crockett just north of Downtown, I noticed the bistro tables and chairs on the sidewalk and the charming façade of Café Brussels. After checking the well-designed website, my husband and I went there for Sunday brunch (choice of selections from three courses for $20). The menu is in French and English. Our meal was delightful, starting with La Soupe du Jour and Toast Norvegian followed by La Salade Liégeoise and Omelette Campagnarde. Dessert was the Classic Brussels Waffle with strawberries and whipped cream and La Crêpe Speculoos. A flight of wines allowed us to sample the various available by the glass. We noticed a number of tables being served a covered pot which, we learned, contained Les Moules (mussels), a specialty of the restaurant prepared in a variety of ways. In retrospect, I am glad to have taken that fortuitous detour from my normal route that day! We will return soon!

My niece and I share a birthday month so I wanted to take her to one of my favorite spots in town. I travel Europe a lot so to find a place with authentic Belgium food was a gem. I loved introducing her to the amazing unique place. A must go spot in Houston.

This is my second trip to Cafe Brussels for lunch. It's a lovely cafe along Houston Avenue. I went with a group from work during our lunch hour both times. Food was really enjoyable, excellent very light and fluffy quiche, tuna sandwiches, veggie sandwiches, good salads and tasty dressing to go with it. We plan to make it a regular lunch break spot. I'd love to go another time when I could linger over dessert. They sounded marvelous.

Not overly impressed...
Although very convenient for the wife and I to get to, we just don't care to return. The food was decent, but there wasn't much to choose from. If you're only going to have a few menu items, they should be exceptional. They only had a handful of wines to choose from as well. And they didn't have my 1st two requests, even though they were on the menu. Not to mention the wine was poured at room temperature... HOUSTON ROOM TEMPERATURE=HOT!
