I'm a person who loves breakfast with the "cafe" atmosphere and I definitely found here at the infamous Bluebonet Cafe! Very warm greeting, waitresses on their toes, and the management was awesome! The food was mediocre. The bacon was too greasy for me but the eggs were perfect. And their homemade cinnamon roles........! Wow! They don't take credit cards but... More

This is actually the second time we've stopped here. We're from Iowa but after stopping for "pie happy hour" last year when we were in the area we came back for breakfast. It was a huge hearty meal for a reasonable price. The bacon and biscuits were fantastic! The line was out the door Sunday morning but the wait wasn't... More

Very large servings of good home cooking....nothing fancy, just come in hungry and leave with your belly full. The yeast rolls are like my grandmother used to make. The catfish was cooked just right, and the coconut cream pie was magnificent.

Had the breakfast and it was good (not great but typical diner breakfast fare). Service was good. Pie was excellent! To me, the meringue on our lemon meringue pie slices were just amazing-this being said after eating a heavy breakfast and it being 6:45am! Something to note is that it is a CASH ONLY establishment, though there is an ATM... More

Good food, great pies. Very much an old style diner. Good comfort food. Had chicken fried steak, goo flavor not too much breading. Omelettes were also good. Definitely would come again. Cash only!

Everyone we met said to go there and get their pie. We did that and both were a bit disappointed in the pies we got. I got the peanut butter and husband got the chocolate cream. Both were good - but didn't have much taste.

We recently spent several days in Marble Falls, and were told that we had to go to the Bluebonnet Cafe. We weren't disappointed. We went twice for a meal, and once for a snack of pie. Both my meals were very good and though it was crowded, the line moved fast and the service was good. The pie was delicious,... More

We ate here for breakfast on our way through and oh my goodness it was delicious. Those cinnamon rolls are to die for! The homemade Texas toast that they serve with the plates was so good! And the pancakes..wow. We took cherry pie to go and it was wonderful as expected. Obviously we loved this place! Go!!

We stopped specifically for a visit and a slice of pie. We ordered apple and lemon meringue. The apples were mushy and crust nothing special. Tasted like something you could buy at the local supermarket. The lemon meringue was made from concentrate, not fresh lemon. Not all that tasty. The coffee was good. A busy place with a big reputation... More
