Cheever's Cafe

Cheever’s Cafe, part of the Good Egg Dining Group, is an upscale restaurant serving Southwestern & Southern cuisine, open for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. Heather and Keith Paul founded the establishment in 2000 when they purchased the Cheever family residence, a historic building on Hudson Avenue. In its earlier years, the building was not only used for residential purposes, but it also served as the headquarters of Cheever’s flower business. Today, the decor is just as charming as it was in the past. The current owners even kept the flower display cooler, which is now used to showcase desserts, wines, and, of course, flowers. If you are looking for romantic restaurants in OKC, this is a great place to try. If you are interested in trying something particularly delicious, order their famous chicken fried steak and, for dessert, the roasted pecan ice cream ball.
