Named in reference to the 43rd President of the United States, Café 43 is a full-service restaurant with a “local first, Texas second” menu. We feature locally-sourced, organic dishes that change seasonally, with complex interpretations of Texas-influenced dishes and classic favorites.

Dining at Café 43 does not require admission to the George W. Bush Presidential Museum.
