Yummy breakfast and different menu items

Chef owned by local who supervises the great tastes. Good place for breakfast, but often crowded. One of the few non-chain places for breakfast in town. Nice selection and good portions - not your typical chain breakfast foods. Nice atmosphere.

I would say this place deserved #50 of restaurants in new braunfels. Definitely not #7. Food and atmosphere was a small cracker barrel. Nothing out standing. Coffee was slightly above average.

We were in the area and asked where could we get a good breakfast and Buttermilk Cafe was suggested by the hotel desk clerk. Buttermilk has traditional breakfast and more unusual offerings. It wasn't inexpensive though. It is clean and has a nice atmosphere.

I wish this place was open for dinner. Everything I have had has been amazing. Fresh ingredients. Salads are the best I've ever had. The owner is very conscientious(sp) about the food. Clean place.

Our family of nine stopped as we were traveling from San Antonio to Ft Worth. This was the perfect choice for our crew- 1/2 wanted breakfast and 1/2 wanted lunch. Everything was delicious! The coffee is worthy of its own mention. Crisp toasted sour dough bread for sandwiches, perfectly prepared eggs, fried green tomatoes, country fried steak with white gravy... More

We enjoy this place for breakfast. There can sometimes be up to 30 minute wait, but well worth it. They do have lunch which is also very good.

Great service, great food and some interesting choices. I had the pork carnitas and I thought they were excellent. I'd definitely go back. Sometimes there's a bit of a wait to get in but we had no problem being seated pretty quickly.

Been here a few times. If you want good biscuits and choices get there early. Chef not always there and quality suffers when she is away. Hours are spotty, often closed. Quality is uneven. When it's good, it's very good.
