This comfortable, yet elegant, restaurant is great for lunch or dinner. The service is professional and Kay is a warm and welcoming host. Add to that, sophisticated food with a Texas and Asian flare. My favorite in Brenham!

This restaurant is a MUST when in Brenham! Kay is always wonderful to visit with and her food has the most interesting flavor combinations, which make her "food for the soul" exactly that-you feel good when you come in and great when you leave!
