Company Cafe's Second Location is Open, and She's a Looker (Photos)
Lauren Drewes Daniels
Company Café's second location is open, in a renovated building tucked behind Texas de Brazil alongside the Katy Trail. Its modern design is coupled with vintage flare where patchwork walls made from old barn wood contrasts with contemporary pieces, like metal chairs and bar stools. The warm lighting and natural elements give it a rustic vibe. And 20 picnic tables spread out in front of the restaurant make for a great outdoor spot.
Food-wise, it's the same concept as the original Company Café on Greenville, which opened earlier this year. The menu focuses on natural, fresh comfort food with an organic twist. They source locally whenever they can. Dinner dishes include chicken and waffles served with a side of real maple syurp, grass fed half-pound burgers and braised short ribs. There are also a few new additions like rock shrimp tacos, and smoked fish and meats from the in-house wood smoker.
All of the dining tables were custom made with repurposed wood by Homestead Heritage in Elm Mott, Texas. With special attention to so many details, like the small succulent plants in old tin cans and vintage Edison light bulbs, the inside is full of character.
