We stopped in for a quick lunch, drawn in by the reviews of the chocolate tart.... We were not disappointed. The sandwiches and nachos were good and tasty, more street food than fancy restaurant food, I wasn't expecting anything wrapped in foil, but they were...More

We went to Cafe Eccell for breakfast/brunch. The menu was different and interesting. Overall the food was good, but we were expecting it to be better. Staff was professional, but not as nice as many places in College Station.

We ate here after my nephew's graduation with a group of 15. The service was great and food very good. I had the spicy shrimp pasta dish and it was excellent. We all got desserts and the chocolate strawberry tart was a favorite.

We had very good service and eclectic food choices by our party of four. We took home desserts from the menu. As usual, they did not disappoint and the food was very good so we had an excellent experience with our friends!

Very, very pleased with my first dining experience at Cafe Eccell. I was quite surprised at how large the restaurant is inside--doesn't seem that big from the outside. This is a casual dining atmosphere--warm and welcoming--with wall mounted tv's for the sports enthusiasts. Service was...More
