Heading into Christmas, Brookwood gets busy so reservations are always a must. As many have mentioned, the large tea-room type setting (white table cloths, napkins, etc.) with a large wall of windows overlooking the garden makes for a very pleasant atmosphere. The attention to detail (fresh warm bread, orange butter, carafes of water.tea) and personal service (we were attended by... More

Took my granddaughter here who is a vegetarian and we were not disappointed. This was my first visit also, but not my husbands so he was familiar with the menu. The menu had a quite a bit to offer and was comparable to many upscale restaurants. Loved the atmosphere and service was great. Can't wait to go back and try... More

Food and service was great. It's a fine dining setting. Casual attire. Reservations are required. It's open seven days a week 11am to 2pm. There is a gift shop with unique gifts such as salad dressings etc. Made by the citizens. The chicken crepes as well as the sorbet desert was delicious. I would recommend this cafe to my friends...

This is a really nice place to eat. Went there for lunch and really enjoyed our selections. The service was great. The staff was very attentive and the food exceptional. A large dining room inside Brookwood, with white tablecloths and nice linens. Although we did not eat dessert, it looked great. A couple items were made onsite, but remainder were... More

This was my second visit to the Café and again, WONDERFUL. Wait staff so polite and gave us the history briefly. The atmosphere is so pleasant, the dining room is beautiful and well kept, quiet even when people start to come in. Our lunches were outstanding as well as appetizing to the eye! We will be back.

This has been the best place I have eaten at for YEARS, if you are planning a trip west of Houston you must stop in. You can only have lunch so plan accordingly, you will not be disappointed.

This is one of my mom's and my favorite places to eat. Special enough to make the drive to take out of town guests. Everything we've tried was excellent. However, my all-time favorite is the signature Mesibov salad.

The developer of this wonderful institution wanted to make their beautiful nursery and shop a destination by adding a fine restaurant - she certainly achieved that.

I'm giving it a 5, not because it would be at the service level of a 4 or 5-star restaurant, but because for what they do, this place is most impressive. The work is done by a team of dedicated employees who simply find its a good place to work, and the residents for whom is is a very big... More
