This restaurant is a MUST when in Brenham! Kay is always wonderful to visit with and her food has the most interesting flavor combinations, which make her "food for the soul" exactly that-you feel good when you come in and great when you leave!

Evidently this place needs a water filtration system. We kept hearing from the owner we wouldn't want to taste the water and we needed to buy bottled water. Really.....as a courtesy the bottled water should have just been given. Don't want free hand outs, but don't tell me how crappy the water is "today" and then charge for the bottled... More

Located in a quaint vintage house. Lovely ambience. Excellent food. My husband loves the noodle bowl prepared by Kay's mother (and chef) who is Japanese. My favorite is the Chicken Parmesan Bites in a bowl of greens with ginger dressing. Yummy deserts and already prepared meals to take home, freeze and cook later! Small gift shop. We love Kay and...

We traveled down from BCS for my birthday dinner, having never been before and boy, were we delightfully surprised!! My husband ordered an Asian fusion steak dish and I chose a chicken enchilada entree, and both were made of fresh ingredients, excellently presented, and unique from the normal menu items. We ended our meal with Japanese plum wine ice cream,... More

My husband had soup and salad for a light dinner, and he was very impressed with the subtle flavors of the soup. I had an angus steak stir-fry that was AMAZING. I... More

Traveling on 290, took a quick detour onto business 290 and stopped here for lunch. Beautiful older home decorated with unique items that are for sale. Menu was limited but the chicken salad on mixed greens was delicious and obviously homemade. Came with a slice of cheese bread that was also tasty. Topped it off with strawberry Shortcake - fresh...
