Enjoyed the delicious food and atmosphere of the cafe!!! It is a very relaxed cafe! You walk in and order at the counter. You then select your choice of seating i.e., outside, booths, tables, bar, comfy chairs, rooms with extra seating. They will notify when your food is ready. You can come here for a meal, drink, dessert or snack.... More

The Woodlands Black Walnut Cafe is a fabulous choice for lunch or dinner offering a broad variety of upscale dishes at very reasonable prices. Their Lobster Tacos are 'to die for' good... The salads are excellent, and all the remaining items on the menu are all very well presented and delicious.

We attended a rehearsal dinner here in a very lovely private room. The food was excellent; if the pot roast is on the regular menu, by all means, order it! It was so flavorful and tender. The pasta dishes were also nicely done and not over cooked. The salads were flavorful, especially the Santa Fe.

The ambiance is a great place to unwind by the fireplace on the patio. The drinks are good. I'm not an outdoor person but I loved the atmosphere.
