Very Very good. Cash only!

This place opened about 1928. The breakfast is its forte' in my opinion. The servings are quite large and absolutely delicious. They are well known for their pies, but I have never been able to have one since I ate so much!

This is really down home cooking - plus the service is great. Although many customers were there, we had no trouble being served the great food.

We went for lunch and probably should have got breakfast foods. The food we got really didn't have much flavor and not worth the price. No the breakfast we saw other tables ordering looked amazing.

Stopped in for pie happy hour on our way to the dragboat races. Everyone else around us was ordering catfish. OMG, we stayed for dinner! Banana cream pie was delish; hubby always orders the "usual" coconut meringue with cup of coffee, $4 during happy hour. Catfish looked amazing, fish was flakey and the crust was golden and light, but light... More

I was looking for classic diners I could visit on my way from DFW to SA and a few ppl recommended this cafe. The area has an amazing view of the river and Marble Falls overall is a pretty little town its really worth the stop. They have a good selection of plates on the menu and a long list... More

Just like home-cooking only better! The chicken strips were yummy! Hubby had chicken fried steak and loved it! Make sure to have some pie too!

Have loved coming here for years when in the area. Well prepared dinner/cafe fare served by friendly and efficient servers. Good portion sizes and good food equals happy campers. Will most definitely be back for more chicken fried steak and eggs

Visiting from out-of-state, our Texas friends took us to Blue Bonnet for breakfast on a Saturday morning. The line was almost out the door, but moved very quickly. Nothing fancy about this place, just good ole southern cooking! A friend asked for fruit and our waitress patted her belly and said, "Honey, do I look like we serve fruit here?"!... More

We've been coming here for years. Not the fanciest diner you've ever seen, but maybe the most historic and gives you a local flavor for Marble Falls. Pancakes and biscuits & gravy are specialties.

Went on a Saturday evening. Service poor, food very average. Never got the homemade rolls they brag about, when we finally asked for some, they were tasteless. The pie was very good though. (coconut cream). Peanut butter pie okay, my daughter said mine was better!
