I am a regular at Kay's Cuisine for the Soul and happened to be in the restaurant yesterday. I have never had a single negative experience at Kay's and the food is always fresh and innovative and the service more than accommodating. Lunch yesterday was a very busy time and when the couple arrived yesterday, there were literally only 2... More

We happen to have an extensive restaurant experience, both as operators and goers, definitely two well-travelled foodies within & outside of US & are well familiar with the norms & customs of restaurant hospitality. We're both very tall and handicapped, so I asked for a bigger... More

First time eating at this restaurant. I had Asian marinated Angus sirloin (I'm Asian and cook a lot), I did enjoy this and admire the attempt towards Asian cooking. I was warned that it has a kick to it but I didn't taste the kick, not spicy at all. My husband had Enchiladas verde, he said it was ok. However... More

Marvelous lunch today at Kay's. The chicken soup, so simple, and simply delicious! Wonderful service in this beautiful old home converted to a great eatery! Go and enjoy. I was glad I made this the stop on my way from Houston!

Kay is a wonderful lady Who has built the restaurant with her own hands. She remodeled it. Invented the menu and created the different dishes from scratch. She is truly a remarkable woman. Her food is delicious and I enjoy eating here whenever I'm in town.

Visited Kay's recently to meet with and honor a Gold Star Mom. The atmosphere was great; cozy and quaint. Kay went above and beyond to welcome us all; it was like we had known her all our lives! The atmosphere was great and they also have beautiful lamps, etc. for sale. The food was great and we did not feel... More

This comfortable, yet elegant, restaurant is great for lunch or dinner. The service is professional and Kay is a warm and welcoming host. Add to that, sophisticated food with a Texas and Asian flare. My favorite in Brenham!

Kay's has a limited menu but everything we have ever tried has been very good. Love the noodle bowl soup!
