Houston Press's Description
Chef and owner Catherine Duwez once ran the popular Cafe Montrose, which was many Houstonians' first introduction to Belgian food. She's still serving the same moules-frites and Belgian waffles that made Cafe Montrose famous and features her amazing house-made mayonnaise alongside each order of twice-cooked fries. During the week there's a lunch buffet if you're on the run, but we recommend choosing a sandwich or pot of mussels instead. Weekends feature a Sunday brunch.
Catherineâs latest venture, CafÃ© Brussels is a great new addition to the Heights. Try the Tartare de Saumon dressed with a zesty Belgian country vinaigrette accompanied by a Belgian draft beer or glass (bottle!) of wine.

Catherineâs latest venture, CafÃ© Brussels is a great new addition to the Heights. Try the Tartare de Saumon dressed with a zesty Belgian country vinaigrette accompanied by a Belgian draft beer or glass (bottle!) of wine. You canât go wrong requesting Catherineâs favorite mussel dish for a main course, Belgian classic, Moules MariniÃ¨res, accompanied by a large serving of golden Belgian Fries. The large and succulent mussels are steamed to perfection and portion sizes are very generous! My dining companion enjoyed le Petit PavÃ© de Bruxelles, a perfectly cooked steak and le Cordon Bleu. Be sure to leave room for one of CafÃ© Brussels fabulous desserts! Catherine's crepes are among my favorites.
Catherine Duwaz is both a good friend and a genuinely nice person. It brings me great pleasure to see a friend continue to succeed in a town that can be unforgiving to restaurateurs. Cafe Brussels is our new "go-to" place in Houston for great Belgian food. And to top it all off, the prices are very reasonable for the quality and the portions sizes are generous.

Houston Avenue location
The selection of mussels that come in different flavor combinations really shine here. Grab a bomber of Chimay and a few orders of mussels. [Eater 38 Member]
Sometimes you just need a Belgian beer.
Order the steamed mussels!
Amazing place! The escargot mussels and beers are awesome!
