A group of us rode our motorcycles from San Antonio to this place for lunch. The lunch buffet was in full swing and I found this to be the best choice on this visit. We got there just as the church crowd was starting to arrive. Had wonderful salad and a full selection of items from the lunch buffet to... More

This is a great local cafe, a must stop when visiting Bandera! Bandera is a very friendly biker town, I would highly recommend it for anyone riding through south Texas.

Food wasn't really good. Bright lights, not cozy...and they don't serve alcohol. Maybe it's more a thing for the locals or just for breakfast/lunch.

Group of 4 ate there a couple of days ago. Three of us having burgers and one with a club sandwich. All burgers were BIG and juicy. The onion rings are made fresh and great as well. Their pies looked great but we were too stuffed to try deserts. Nice old cowboy atmosphere as well. Can't go wrong at this... More

Almost every Monday you can find me here having coffee and sometimes breakfast with my friends. The place is always clean and the staff are friendly. Jessica and Crystal automatically know I want Splenda or Equal and water with my coffee. So, they bring it as soon as they bring the coffee. It's wonderful having such an establishment here where...

It was a foggy morning but warm and dry here at one of our favorite places to eat. Stopped in w/ a group of riders for Brunch and had a great time as usual. Great Service and great food.

The ambiance and service were great. The food was ordinary, the portions were a bit small, and the toast seemed to be made from Wonder bread.

The pie actually gave this the very good rating. The chicken fried steak was recommended to us but we opted for burgers which were very good. The onion rings were only so so as they were not very warm and I didn't care for the coating. However, we got pie to go - pecan and coconut cream. What a treat... More

We camped in the near by nature area and needed somewhere for a quick bite before our drive home. There was a slight wait here, but they moved very quickly to get tables turned. The food was actually pretty yummy. The pancakes were like dessert! I had an omelet that was big and pretty good. The people were very friendly!... More
