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.

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 friends rave about this restaurant & how amazing it was. I mean, the food was good. The wait staff was lacking. Kept forgetting things. Got our drinks mixed up. I had to refill our tea & water from the pitchers behind us. Tarts...More
