Arrived at 6:30 on a Friday and advised that the wait would be about 2 hours. Was surprised. They advised it was "ring night" and they were very busy. We cod get service at the bar but no tables for the next two hours. Place...More

The venison burger and corn chowder were quite good, though the corn chowder is not as good as it was in the late '90s - something in the recipe has changed. I'd still recommend it, though. I'll be coming back next time I'm in town!

The brunch at Cafe Eccell is worth the money, and the menu has a variety of menu options. It's a little pricey, but to me it's worth it. The Hawaii 5-0 breakfast pizza is a great choice for sharing.

My favorite thing here is the dessert! The amaretto mousse bomb and strawberry torte are amazing. They also have great wood fired pizza. This is not a fast food place, go when you have plenty of time.

My husband and I went to College Station to grab Father's Day lunch with our college kids. I pushed for a local place, as I thought it was "the right thing to do." WRONG! The gyro arrived alone on a plate without even a hint...More

I like to take people who come in town to Cafe Eccell because it the food is reliably good, there is a wide variety of menu options for picky eaters, and it is moderately priced. Definitely a go-to in College Station.
