Keeping your plate local, fresh, & community-oriented is our priority at Whiskey Cake. Crisp, fresh, vegetables from our area, regionally-crafted artisan cheeses, country sausage, and even Texas-harvested and pressed extra virgin olive oil make their way on to your plate by way of our kitchen. Our farm-to-fork ethos is embedded in our DNA, and that means we’re serious locavores. We care about not only our ethical footprint, but also supporting our fellow Texas entrepreneurs and culinary artisans.
We don’t just feature Texas whiskeys like Balcones Rye, we’re also a community of badass-yet-welcoming barkeeps slinging craft cocktails and bringing together our neighborhood over fresh bread baked daily. Because “local” means farm fresh and it means being a good neighbor, too. That’s why we use beans roasted by Sacred Heart Coffee in Houston when we serve you our barista-worthy French Press coffee at brunch.
It’s why our noted goat cheese fondue is made with fresh chèvre handcrafted at Dapper Goat Dairy, where Saanen & La Mancha goats are free to roam, and lovingly cared for by ranchers. Noted for its buttery & smooth taste, the milk from Dapper Goat’s herds produces a cheese that rivals any import, and is served with grilled sourdough, thyme, olives, and other tastes of the Mediterranean.
Our namesake whiskey cake is made with Silver Tree Nuts’ pecans, grown right in the heart of Comanche County. After all, it wouldn’t be whiskey cake without pecans, and it wouldn’t be pecans without Texas. Oh, and a dollop of our house-made vanilla whipped cream, because that’s just the way it should be.
If you’re wondering how some of our signature dishes like our Handcut Ribeye, Shrimp & Grain Salad, & our Steak Frites get their subtle sweetness, look no further than the family-owned Stroope Honey Farms in Pearland, TX. Dating back four generations to the early twentieth century, the Stroopes have been producing honey for nearly 100 years and have been operating their farm in Houston for half-a-century.
It’s local, craft businesses like these that keep Whiskey Cake firmly rooted in the community. Eat local; eat in your neighborhood. We’ll be here, whipping up homespun meals and cocktails for you when you drop by.
Barrel out the door and into Whiskey Cake for the complete craft whiskey experienceThere’s no card required to check out a pour from our library of over 250 hand-selected whiskeys, bourbons, ryes, and single-malt scotches at Whiskey Cake! Featuring an encyclopedic selection of local, domestic, and international whiskies from Texas, Florida, Kentucky, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, Japan, and beyond, you may as well get your atlas out while you sample the globe’s varied takes on that beautiful, amber, “water of life” aged in barrels and imparted with a wide array of tasting notes. We also have a number of expertly-curated whiskey flights for when you’re in the mood to kick your shoes off, (figuratively, of course. Or maybe for real. That’s cool, too.) sit back, and enjoy a selection of whiskies carefully chosen by connoisseurs of the boozy arts. You can also create your own lineup of whiskies from our extensive collection – a fun way to spend an evening comparing single-malts to Kentucky bourbons, or even a Japanese rice whiskey. If you order something really top-shelf (literally), you might even see one of our barkeeps scale a ladder to retrieve your bottle of choice from our immense backbar – how’s that for a drink and a show? Naturally, our barkeeps are well-educated in the ways of whiskey (and the cocktail canon, too!) and will gladly help you pick out a quad that’ll give you that peaceful, easy feeling.
