Mothers Day Brunch

We had an excellent waiter who made great recommendations. The decor is pleasant, although definitely not traditional German. The food was good. We will return.

When i hv visitors for the weekend with me, I always take them having brunch here. Love their Mimosa drink. So fresh, food portions are big. Loves their pancake, omelet. Don't forget to try their Poppy sseed kolache is the BEST. Great view in the hill country of Texas. Overlooking the Cibolo river with lots of ducks around. This place... More

Was reluctant after having a bad experience in "authentic" german food in the area. I was extremely pleased in our feast and will and have returned.

After photographing a 1:00 event my husband and I wanted a warm but light lunch before my next shoot this evening. The place was packed!!! We ordered the chicken rolauden (so?) and split it. It was perfect. Little Gretel has wonder food and is constant with quality. Yummmmm!!!

Loved it. I had the eggs Benedict and my husband had the meat lovers omelette. Both were served with a side of potatoes. We also got two kolaches to share. The chocolate raspberry was good but we agreed the peach was the best. Good coffee, attentive and helpful waiter. We enjoyed everything about it.

Arrived right before opening and there was a line waiting to get in. Great breakfast, eggs with kolaches! Coffee was dark and rich. Great staff and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Will definitely go again!

My husband and I went here for our weekly Sunday breakfast (on Mother's Day .... and we normally do not go to ANY restaurants on that one day of the year). It was a wonderful food/eating experience. We've had Sunday breakfast here before so we already knew food quality was on par. Truthfully it's been the service that has kept... More

This is our families favorite place to have breakfast. From the coffee to the waffle with cream or an omelet you can't go wrong.

My husband and I recently ate here for lunch and it was ok. It's a small place in downtown Boerne. We were going to eat outside but decided the proximity to the road traffic would make that less than pleasant. My husband had the beer battered cod without the sauerkraut and said it was excellent. The cod had been pan-fried,... More
