Great food in a very neat renovated building on the square

This place is absolutely delicious. My wife and have gone for lunch specials several times and are always very happy with our experience. The building itself is awesome....an old drug store/five and dime store turned into an upscale restaurant. The architecture is interesting and well done... read more

Uptown Blanco had a beautiful setting and intermittently good food. Trouble retaining chefs was the cause of the up-and-down quality and resulted in lack of a local following. Now as a result of family issues, the owner has announced she's closing the restaurant.

The food, service and atmosphere are all very good. Great desserts. A little more fancy than other restaurants in Blanco.

Lovely refurbished building complex of restaurant, theatre, and fabric shop. A great place to stop and spend time in a place of historical and architectural interest. The food was also quite good and ambitious for such a small town. The atmosphere and wait staff were top notch - the food a notch down.

Many locals, like myself, avoided this restaurant after it opened. It looked too fancy to be affordable. My daughter encouraged me to try it and I've enjoyed lunches here for the past couple of years. Dinner is a little more expensive, but lunch is no more than you would spend for any other lunch and the experience here is exceptional.... More

We met our friends for our Christmas get together and the Uptown Blanco Cafe is always a great place for each one to choose their favorite food. Service was perfect. We each had a different item from salmon cake for appetizer to New York steak, pasta dish, clams. To top it off the two man combo played perfect background music.... More

The choices were fantastic--fresh fruit, biscuits, gravy, pastries, bacon, sausage, omelets fixed how you like them. Wonderful choices from the menu including Eggs Benedict!

We took our family to the restaurant for their birthdays. Everyone has a birthday within 4 months so w pooled them all together and had a wonderful meal. There was a wide selection of meals so everyone had something they liked.
