Description

Houston Press' Description

This tiny new French cafe in Rice Village does a remarkable job of re-creating lovable peasant dishes from the French countryside. Try merguez and frites (lamb sausage and french fries) or a goat cheese-and-olive tart or even a chicken liver-and-poached-egg salad for lunch. The blackboard menu also might include steak salad, bavette frites (flank steak and french fries) or an old-fashioned vegetable potage. Cafe Rabelais's mottled cream-colored walls look like old plaster, and somehow the French rural look is absolutely charming despite the shopping center parking lot outside the window.

    It's quaint, it's French, it's in Rice Village and it will make you feel like you've stepped into a charming Parisienne cafe. [Eater 38 Member]

    Beautiful setting, very good bread and excellent mussels!

  • Matthew E. on 09/04/12

    Excellent French bistro. Huge wine list. Great bread, fresh salads. Their quiche is always very good. Sit outside if weather allows.

  • Amanda on 11/12/09
