One of a Kind

This iconic cafe is a must visit when in Kerrvile. The food is great, down home cooking served by warm, friendly wait staff. Don't leave without a homemade cinnamon role or slice of pie.

Service is excellent and the breakfasts and lunch specials are always delicious with large portions. It is not to big so get there early. If you have any special requests they gladly accomodate you. Coffee & drinks are everflowing and they appear to really like their jobs. Try their cinnamon rolls or pies!

Good food hot coffee full bellies. If you want to know if the grits are good I'll tell you "their perfect". FYI they have an ATM at the restaurant for the cash only payment.

We went there Saturday Morning for breakfast. Just what we wanted. Country breakfast, the grits were especially good. Only draw back was they were not open for Sunday Breakfast.

Although this restaurant has a great reputation in the area, don't go unless you want to order breakfast, which is their specialty. I had the tuna salad plate and it had a very small amount of food on it, a very small scoop of tuna salad, cottage cheese and crackers. Not a good value for right at $10.

Always a good meal at this Kerrville gem. They have a good breakfast as well. My favorite for lunch is their King Ranch Chicken. It is not always the special, but whatever is will be good. Don' is eating here. The waitresses are also friendly and efficient. Bring cash, they don't do credit cards.

While passing through Kerrville we decided to try some local cooking and chose Hill Country Café. We were glad we did! We visited it about 1:30 after the lunch crowd, but a few diners were still present visiting. We ate BLT sandwiches and fired okra. The fried okra tasted like it was fresh cut from a backyard garden.

I wish I could rate this place higher. The exterior looks great! The waitstaff is well trained and does a great job. The Hill Country Cafe is also a landmark, but past that it is nothing special. Bring cash, they don't take checks or credit cards. The food is good but not the best in town nor the cheapest. I... More
