Ask for Walter ........

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... read 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!

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

Nice view of their city park along the river IF the pickup trucks or SUV were not parked in front. I think like many places if you eat outside service could be slower.

I expected more than we received. Our service was erratic - the wait person would agree to do something and then disappear and forget us. When the food came, we did not get what we ordered and the taste of the food was average at best. The building is attractive and the location on the river is good. I can... More

This is a restaurant with lots of possibility and a lovely owner from Prague. I ate an omelette which was so-so, but I WISH I had ordered either the Wiener Schnitzel or Jaeger Schnitzel! Next time!
