This is a good venue for breakfast. The service is cool but efficient. Expect down-home cooking and a down-home atmosphere. It is in the heart of downtown, if one is attending downtown functions it is totally an accessible walk away.

We breakfast at this café every Saturday. It is a place where all the locals go. No frills but the food is good and the waitstaff are just plain sweet and efficient. It reminds me of the diners my family frequented in my childhood. Try the bacon and egg breakfast tacos.

Don't waste your time on this place. I ordered cheese on my eggs and they put a piece of American cheese right on top, it came out square, gross. The food is as plain as you can get, no frills, no presentation, they just slop it out prison cafeteria style. Very bottom of the barrel and the service wasn't much... More

For me the omelettes are the best. If you are a bacon lover get the bacon omelette. I suggest you add cheese. But they have lots of other good things. This is a small town cafe atmosphere as though you were in a small town. Country food!

Breakfast is old fashioned,and good, lunch is superb, and tastes like my Mother's cooking during the Depression. Service is rapid and the prices are way below other places of this kind.

Went for breakfast and was delighted with the home style quality you only get in a place like this. Can't beat the simple cafe style of food served in this comfort food cafe-just plain good! Old fashion breakfast

The food was terrific! The service came with a smile and the waitress was very friendly and attentive without being in our faces. We will be back.

We were back in hill country and decided to see if Hill Country Cafe was still serving the best CFS , so we stopped in, and sure enough, perfection persists. It's a beautiful thing. We noted a bunch of new chain, seafoody restaurants on the road from Junction that seemed to have a lot of business. I hope the town... More

I am a big fan of chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and white gravy. The CFS at the Hill Country Cafe is the BEST. The breading was crispy and didn't wilt under the gravy. The mashed potatoes were homemade, just lumpy enough to ensure they were from real potatoes, with a good garlic undertone and made with plenty of... More
