Barry's Bistro is a one of a kind Bistro and small antique/gift shop located on East Main Street in Downtown League City. We occupy The Historic Lawrence Home, originally located on property at the north corner of Iowa and East Main Street.
The house was built after the 1900 Storm, probably in 1905. This two-story structure is built of cypress and debris recovered from that storm. The staircase lends to the simplicity of the house. Original wide flooring is found throughout the house. Several rooms feature beaded ceilings. Many of the original window panes are still in place. The most noteworthy feature of the house is the distinctive copper roof which was added in 1915.
Elmer and Eliza Jane Lawrence moved to League City in 1907 and purchased the house in 1910. Their business, Lawrence Broom & Mop, was one of the oldest and longest running businesses in League City. They were very active in the Friends Church of League City. Mr. Lawrence preceded his wife in death. In 1955, after Mrs. Lawrence’s death, the home was sold to the Friends Church for a parsonage. Kenneth Miller was the first Friends Minister to live in the parsonage. In August of 1957, Jack Pierce became the Pastor of the Friends Church and lived in the parsonage until 1963. After the Friends Church vacated the premises, the building was moved to face Iowa Avenue and became a rental property.
In 1990, the Lawrence Home was in a sad state of repair and that owner offered the house to anyone who would move it to another location so he might have access to the land. It was moved to its present location at 1013 East Main and has been refurbished and preserved, making it truly a unique property which now is home to a very special Bistro, Antique/Gift Shop.

We held my daughters baby shower last weekend at Simply Fresh Restaurant. The place was lovely, the food and service was outstanding. The owner stated they changed the name and the concept, however all the family recipes are still available. We were so glad they are still doing private parties!
