We enjoyed the pepperoni pizza, Caesar salad and creme brûlée cheesecake. It was all very good. The atmosphere was pleasant and the service ( Leila) was excellent. The prices were reasonable.

We have had both early Friday appetizers/drinks at Cafe Eccell as well as dinner. We enjoyed both, good wine by glass and the food was good. The Ahi Tuna appetizer can feed 2-3 and is nice. My wife had the lamb gyro...loved the lamb, nicely seasoned and done. At dinner a few months before, dinner was slow and the wait... More

My wife and I have frequented this restaurant for years, from our dating years through marriage and still visit on occasional anniversaries. I miss the original and quaint location before the city turned it into a new apartment complex. I loved the original menu, but there are a few new, but more commercial offerings. Still a great restaurant.

After a short wait on a very bust parents weekend we enjoyed a nice brunch. The chicken and waffles were a tad dry but the mimosa and bloody mary bar was excellent.

What a pleasant surprise ! I was in Aggieland on Saturday for a last minute mom/daughter day. My daughter suggested that we try Cafe Eccell. I was also curious to give it a try as it had been recommended as a potential dining spot for a graduation dinner. It was packed but we were immediately seated. It's a large restaurant.... More

While I have been going to Cafe Eccell off and on for over 20 years, I haven't understood why it is still considered one of our nicer restaurants. The food is very hit or miss and the happy hour is a joke. You MUST sit in the bar to get a happy hour special and then you must select from... More

Three of use had a meeting over dinner. All entries were nicely presented and very tasty. I wish there was slightly a larger portion as I was still hungry for more of the same and I don't eat fast. Good food, nice variety, good cocktails.

But also some strange ones. Instead of an omelet bar, they had a scrambled egg bar. It was $13.95 and did not include any sides or toast or biscuits. The also had just started a pancake bar, but our server did not know what it cost, nor did he offer to find out. The menu was very diverse, but kind... More

While the meal was excellent, we had to ask for our silverware and napkins after our food arrived. While this may seem a small thing, it is an indicator of attention to detail. They are a... More
