I wanted a wood fired take out pizza with interesting, upscale toppings. I decided to try Cafe Eccell for take out. Pros: the ordering process on the phone was great--very friendly and helpful young man AND you can drive up to a window and pick up your order. Very cool! But the pizza just wasn't that good especially for the... More

Great beers and wines. In Texas I want to drink small breweries from Texas. The staff is knowledgeable. Food is always top notch especially the soups. Today had the Tortilla chicken soup. Big and hearty with a lot of flavor. Had the Texas flat bread with steak added (that was a recommendation of my bartender/server) was awesome. Kelsey, the other... More

We have been there many times for different meals. Sunday brunch is always a treat. Everything on the menu is very good! And we always get a pizza or 2 to take home. They have a great selection of desserts and cocktails. The bar atmosphere is very nice as well.

Went here on Thanksgiving prior to an A&M Football game. Very crowded, as would be expected. I had the seafood enchiladas, and I would get them again. Excellent. The rest of our party ordered the Thanksgiving feast, which was just so-so. The portions were great, except the amount of turkey was marginal considering the $25 price. Some of the food... More

We were in College Station on Thanksgiving for the football game and this was one of the few restaurants open. It was amazing!! We got chips and the blanc queso to start - great flavor, then we split one of the brick-oven pizzas - it was SOOO good! We decided to splurge on dessert. I got the Creme Brûlée cheesecake... More

I visited Cafe Eccell during a business trip to Texas. The environment is very nice decorated, the tables have wide space between them so the visitor feels really comfortable and the staff is really friendly and keen to help! The prices might seem a little high but when you come to taste the food the quality of the ingredients and... More

The gal at the hotel down the street called this a Mediterranean restaurant - not close. Very much more cozy inside that what I expected. Wide assortment of ethnic and American foods. Wait staff was very attentive. Food was ordered and delivered in a reasonable time. Tortilla soup was very good and different from what I expected (more ancho chili... More
