Always a great breakfast, lunch or dinner and the waitresses enhance the experience. Our favorite place to eat. We probably visit 3-5 times each week.

We spend almost every weekend in Marble Falls and have eaten at Blue Bonnet numerous times. This local landmark is overrated in my opinion. A good place to go for breakfast...as it is really the only place. Pastry and pies look way better than they taste! Lunch and dinner just so so. Staff always friendly. Portions large and prices low.... More

I read loads of reviews and expected this to be more tasteful. Food was bland, pies were ok, not bad but not the best in the west. Without hearing of the hype it was average, with the hype was a small disappointment. The chicken fried steak was "the most popular" so I tried that. it was bland and very chewy.... More

We really wanted to try this place but since the line was out the door in the 100 degree heat for lunch, my husband and I opted for breakfast the next morning. We both ordered the two egg breakfast which comes with your choice of meat, hash browns or grits, and choice of bread. When I asked for biscuits, the... More

Every so often we make the hour drive from our home just for breakfast and pie and the best grits on the planet. Doesn't matter time of day.....always breakfast, coffee, pie. It's tradition.

I've eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. This is homecooking at its best. They have daily specials and also a large menu. We are two adults and three kids. We had chicken strips, hamburgers, chicken-fried steak, smoked chicken (one of the daily specials). The plate lunches are a meat and three . . . lots of food!... More

Anytime I'm in the area (or driving through) I stop for some pie! It's old fashioned, classic, delicious pie! I haven't tried any that wasn't good. I've eaten breakfast and dinner there as well. Diner style, yummy, comfort food. Absolutely recommend but don't stop without getting some pie!!!

My wife and I stumbled upon the great cafe. The parking lot was full at 11 am. We noticed the line was out the door and almost went elsewhere. Everyone in line said "It is worth the wait". I had breakfast eggs over easy, bacon and pancakes that covered the hole plate. My wife had lunch. This restaurant has been... More
