    Brookwood is a wonderful place to have a leisurely lunch with a few friends or a group. The service is very good if you go for a later lunch, can be very busy during the noon hour. The setting is very beautiful and the nursery has very hardy plants at reasonable prices. Booking online was simple and hassle free.

    The Cafe at Brookwood was wonderful. Mom and I made the trip from Houston just to check out the Brookwood Community. We shopped a little in the gift shop and walked through the green house/plant area and then we had lunch in the cafe. It was really busy - glad we had the reservation just in case. We would like to go again and try something else on the huge lunch menu. Our food was well presented, perfect temperature salad and entrees. The portions were very nice. The tea carafe left on our table was great. We had to finish with dessert (very large, too large to finish - had to bring the rest home with us). I would recomend the Cafe at Brookwood...it was well worth the drive for the lunch alone and we will be back.

    The Brookwood Cafe has long been a favorite of ours. Fortunately, it being outside of Houston it will not draw legions of foodie wannabes to its' door. The food is excellent, creative and abundant. The service is attentive while not overbearing. The gardens are beautiful and artistic. The benefits provided by your group are truly wonderful. I salute you.

    The Brookwood Cafe is surrounded by gardens which can be viewed through the glass windows which are all around the dining area. The food was very good and served very hot. The wait staff was very helpful especially since we had our 5 year old daughter with us. We would recommend the restaurant to families or groups. It would be a great place for special occasions.

    This is my second visit with a party of 4. Everyone loved the butternut squash soup, a varied selection of sandwiches and entrees, all came in hearty size and lightly seasoned, perfect for our palate. Nice to see and being waited on by the resident staff. Weather was nice and we would have loved to sit outside by the garden but a crew was cleaning the awnings. Worth a visit when time permits and great to support the residents of the community.
