I used to go here in the 1990's and the "City Fathers" would be gathered around A great big table discussing the city business. In those days there was a fresh bakery on site. Today you can still get a great Hill Country breakfast in a historic venue. Not for gourmets but great for real Texans.

Good basic eats in a pleasant home style diner setting. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the service was friendly.

One of my favorite spots in Kerrville. Love the history and local down home flair of this place. We eat here all the time and have never had a bad meal. Fast service, reasonable prices and great food.

We eat here regularly. It is small and intimate a true throwback to small town eateries. Great fresh food and wonderful staff. Affordable and fun.

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!
