Forest Cafe & Bakery is a cute mom-and-pop shop in The Woodlands.
When you travel to The Woodlands/Conroe area, you are probably heading up north for a few reasons: 1) To see a concert at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion 2) To shop at The Woodlands Mall and Market Street or 3) To eat at one of the Waterway restaurants or newly established eateries in the surrounding area.

While most of us frequent the likes of CorkScrew BBQ, Jasper's, Uni Sushi and Hubbell & Hudson for lunch or dinner, there's another quaint café you must visit for breakfast and lunch, or when you need a little something sweet to eat.

I heard about Forest Café & Bakery when my mom stumbled upon it while she was out and about on 242 and I-45. She said the place was packed at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Unfortunately when she went inside, the bakery was out of most of its pastries, cupcakes, sweet breads and cookies, but she told me I needed to check this place out.

Forest Cafe & Bakery is joined by a multitude of eateries in the College Park Plaza.
During the past several years, College Park Plaza has grown significantly. Now, there's a Panera Bread, McAllister's, Jax Burgers, The Cupcake Cowgirls, Picomolo Ice Cream and Shogun Grill. Although I have spent the majority of my life in The Woodlands, I clearly haven't ventured into the College Park Plaza enough.

Forest Café & Bakery is a family-run business that opened in 2006. It sure is a mom-and-pop restaurant -- the owners go by Mr. and Mrs. G, and she is the mastermind behind all of the baked treats. It's a simple breakfast and lunch eatery serving comforting dishes you'd expect to have at grandma's -- pancakes, French toast, omelets, soups, sandwiches and burgers. And everything is made from scratch.
