We recently visited the Little Gretel Restaurant. The food is amazing the flavors are unique. The décor is wonderful and delightful. I love the honey pudding cake and can't wait to come back for more. The location is great for an after dinner walk and sight seeing.

When visiting Boerne for breakfast appointments I prefer the Little Gretel. The atmosphere is conducive to conversation and the food and coffee is fresh and hot. It's a real European cafe with an assortment of unique dishes. Service has always been prompt and friendly, and on several occasions the owner served us. On another visit we had family meet us...

Little Gretel is popular for breakfast on Sunday mornings and Mothers Day was no exception. We avoided the waiting line as we were only a party of two in a sea of large family groups. The Eggs Benedict with crab cake was a different twist for the same old thing. This restaurant is popular with tourists as it is located... More

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.

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.
