Coming home from Lost Maples we stopped at the Hill Country Cafe for breakfast. The food was good got the regular fair of bacon eggs hash browns and toast and added a hot cake and biscuits and gravy to sample cause that's what we do....Food was good and was served very hot. Service was acceptable. Bacon was perfect again! three for three on this trip! Problem with the service..... servers were sitting at at table eating then waiting on guests without apparently washing hands. There were no masks worn again.... no sanitizer. I also didn't like the check out procedure where you didn't really leave a tip you had to ask for cash on your debit card ($5 $20 0r $50) tell the server the tip amount and hope you got correct change . Pretty sketchy. One interesting fact this cafe sits on the site of the first HEB grocery store. We read that on a news article posted on the wall.More

WOW! I was in town for an appointment and met some friends here for breakfast. It took a little while to get our food, but it was 100% worth the wait. I had a break fast taco and a blueberry pancake. Both were outstanding. I...got to try on of my friend's biscuits and it was amazing.More

Food was good. Service was prompt and good. Plenty of locals eat here which is a testament to the food and service. I would eat here again.

No one including staff wear face masks. If this appeals to you then this is your place. The food was great and the servers were efficient. Nice place. 8-12-20

My husband and I have been coming here the last year. The past few times we have been in Rhonda has been snippy with us and hateful to the other people she worked with. At first we thought it was just playful teasing but lately...it's got flat out rude. Telling the cooks to "get their sh*t together" in the open dining room. Jerking things out of the other girls hands and storming off in a huff. With us she likes to slam our plates and drinks down and speak to us as if we are bothering her. We mentioned it to the waitress Shelley who apologized and tried to explain her humor. Guess we dont get that kind of humor... Moral of the story, fix your employee's crappy attitude. Sorry to say we wont be back in anymore be cause we loved the food and everything else about the place.More

Chili omelette was delicious. Make sure you get the biscuits with a side of gravy though. They were delicious. Should have added sausage, but oh well.

Great place for breakfast with a historic past (original HEB). Friendly help and good quality food. Small dining room with old time diner atmosphere. We stop by several times a year.

You know how you feel on those first crisp days when Fall finally arrives in Texas? Well that’s when the hankering for Biscuits and Gravy can no longer be ignored! I am only in their neighborhood occasionally, but for decades I have enjoyed breakfast or...lunch at the Hill County Cafe. The food is great and the waitresses have Texas Charm! 806 N Main, Kerrville, TexasMore

Great restaurant with small town charm. Hash browns are great. Cinnamon rolls are homemade and very good.
