About Café Express
In the United States, an authentic European café experience can be hard to come by, even in metropolitan cities, for many reasons. But when Café Express came into the scene, such an experience became easier to find and, thus, enjoy.
The chain, which has 19 locations so far, is characterized by its fast-casual, bistro-style restaurants with a trendy feel. Most of its restaurants are the Houston and Dallas areas in the State of Texas while its headquarters are in Houston. The reasonable Café Express prices are a common denominator in all locations.
Schiller Del Grande Restaurant Group founded Café Express in 1984. In 2004, Wendy’s International purchased 70% of the chain but by 2007, it sold back its stake.
What They’re Known For
Many of the dishes and desserts on the Café Express menu have been created by Chef Robert Del Grande, its founder. Del Grande combined the best of two worlds – the European café cuisine and the Southwest cuisine – in creating Café Express’ original menu. The result: Quality gourmet food at reasonable prices.
Why Eat Here
Every Café Express restaurant has a casual yet trendy ambiance that draws in students, young professionals, and businessmen to its doors. There’s a certain upscale quality to the interiors without being snotty or snobbish, a place where people can sit back, relax and enjoy great food inspired by European and Southwest cuisines.
The delicious dishes, of course, are the main attractions of the Café Express chain. The extensive menu can seem overwhelming at first with the choices ranging from scrambled eggs, breakfast platters, and burgers to grilled and roasted entrées and desserts. There’s even a kid’s meal so kids don’t have to feel left out of the table.
The scrambled eggs, or Scrambles, are among the first things that will catch your attention because there are just so many varieties. The Southwest Scramble appeals to the palate of Texans with its savory combination of scrambled eggs, black beans, and cheddar sauce with guacamole and tortilla strips, which are topped with Southwestern sauce and served with wheat toast. The Texas Scramble is a hearty meal on its own with fried potatoes, bacon, and sautéed onions topped with cheddar cheese.
The Chipotle Chicken Scramble is similar to the Texas Scramble but instead of bacon, it has grilled chicken; the scrambled eggs are served with chipotle salsa, fresh guacamole, and wheat toast. The Mediterranean Scramble is a healthy meal with low-fat turkey, sautéed mushrooms, and steamed spinach served with scrambled eggs, feta cheese, and green onions. Be sure to try the Provencal Scramble and Florentine Scramble, too, for a taste of Europe on a plate.
If you have a big appetite for breakfast, then you should try the Breakfast Platters. The American Classic Platter brings back memories of breakfast at home with scrambled eggs, bacon, and wheat toast and served with either fresh fruit or skillet potatoes. The Sausage Classic Platter features turkey sausage and toasted ciabatta bread.
What’s a breakfast bar without French toast? The French Quarter French Toast is a decadent breakfast treat of French bread with fresh berries, glazed pecans, and caramel syrup that will kick-start your day.
The French café experience is made even better with Café Express’ croissant, a flaky pastry served with scrambled eggs, roasted tomatoes, and goat cheese. The Southwest experience isn’t far behind with the Breakfast Taco with its scrambled eggs and cheese served in a flour tortilla and with a side of chipotle salsa; it also comes with bacon, turkey sausage, and potatoes.
With the focus on healthy dining choices among consumers, Café Express also has several fresh and healthy meals available. The Fresh Fruit & Muffin is a muffin served with seasonal fresh fruit, glazed pecans, and vanilla yogurt. The Fresh Fruit & Yogurt Parfait is a light meal with crunchy granola, fresh fruit, and low-fat vanilla yogurt.
Make the kids happy with several choices in kid-friendly breakfast. There’s the Kid’s French Toast served with either skillet potatoes or fruit cup and the Kid’s American Classic with scrambled eggs, skillet potatoes, and bacon.
The menu also features a wide range of appetizers (fresh guacamole, hummus and grilled pita, and chicken tenders); soups (black bean soup, chicken soup, and creamy new potato soup); and salads (shrimp and avocado, grilled chicken, and veggie chef). Sandwiches, burgers, and pastas that will satisfy the culinary needs of meat lovers and vegetarians alike are also available.
Aside from the usual fountain drinks, Café Express restaurants also offer beers and wines for adults. Kids and adults will definitely find something that will complement their food and quench their thirst here.
The customer service is fast, friendly and efficient although there may be several minutes of waiting time during peak hours. Come here for breakfast and lunch since these are the best times to enjoy a leisurely European café experience with a touch of Texas. There’s free Wi-Fi access and television for entertainment, too.
