I personally love their French toast, but everyone else I know love their Germsn dishes. Not many places have potato pancakes either, and they do! Great food, love the staff and pricing is midrange. We go often, and will continue to. Great view of the river and ducks of Boerne too

I like meals that are fresh, tasty and fancy, great flavors danced around my mouth when I had dinner here, I ordered a double pork chop with butternut buckwheat and simply loved it, also kolache is excellent very fine food.

For breakfast, my crab cake benedict was marvelous... but my husband's eggs and bacon was just average. The waitress was alright, but not particularly friendly or helpful. We liked what we saw on the lunch menu, and may return to try that someday. Nice quaint setting.

We had Brunch last Sunday at Little Gretel, and were very satisfied with our dishes, the one that really stood out was a unique eggs benedict served on a kolache. It was delicious. Their coffee is really good too. We had a great time, and will return.

We chose this restaurant for a group of 11. Everyone was delighted with their lunch choice. One odd occurrence.......one diner's entree sized salad came with a small container of dressing; a second serving of salad dressing was quickly provided, but we were very surprised to find a charge on our bill for it. Other than that, everything was fine. The... More

This place is a great! We went all out and thoroughly enjoyed everything. Our waiter, Michael, was a joy - he has a passion for this place and we love it! We started with the Wild Game Sampler - and it was nothing short of amazing. Buffalo, Venison and wild Boar sausage paired with my favorite Gouda Cheese and green... More

During our visit to Boarne, we decided to have dinner at Littlte Gretel. We lured in by the quaint, homey, and inviting exterior. We ordered the Duck Breast with Risotto. It was amazing!!! The flavors were well balanced and it was definitely the best meal we've had since we started our vacation two weeks ago. We will most define to... More
