Lookout Cafe & Cocktails has just opened in Gunbarrel Center, the second restaurant there after Proto’s, which it’s right across from. It’s a limited service restaurant: You order and pay at a counter and then take a number to place on your table. They bring the food to your table, although they call your name for coffee. I didn’t have any alcohol, so I don’t know what they do for those drinks; perhaps they just pour your drink when you pay.
UPDATE: I’m told there’s full service for dinner.
For breakfast, which is what we had, they have bagels (shown is an egg, cheese, and bacon bagel), burritos, and pastries. There are sandwiches for lunch, and tapas for dinner. Click here to see the menus. I haven’t been there yet for lunch or dinner.
For dinner, Proto’s is a better bargain, since you can get a medium pizza, enough for two, for a little as $9. But you can’t have pizza all the time, so Lookout is a welcome alternative.
The bagel and burrito we had were pretty good, and not expensive. There are a dozen wine taps, a few beer taps, and full bar. The wine prices seem high to me, but the happy hour (every day from 4 to 6) prices are much lower.
There’s outdoor seating, too.
They’re open Sunday to Thursday from 7am-9pm, and Friday to Saturday until 10. That’s earlier and later than most other places in Gunbarrel.
