“Nice old town square”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

The old town has a traffic circle around the square in the center of town. There is a nice coffee shop on one corner, there are restaurants and close to one corner a very nice old time bakery. When I went to this site I found no pictures and that puzzled me. However in all fairness I just left the area and failed to take even one picture. I will go back soon and update this site with some photos. We walked the streets and while many downtowns where many of the former retailers have closed, now there are smaller and less appealing shops scattered throughout the area. However there are also several interesting places and especially restaurants that are very good.

“The town square and farmer's market”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

I like everything about New Braunfels. The popular bakery and historic hardware store on or near the town square and especially the Saturday farmer's market a block off of the town square. All are amazing. The parks in town are very beautiful as well.

“Historic with Plenty of Cold Drinks”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Beautiful during Christmas time and never a shortage of really cool bars. Phoenix Saloon, Scores, Piano Bar, Oyster House and the PourHaus. The PourHaus is a new bar just down the street from the circle and is an outdoor patio bar. Really cool atmosphere and great location. There is a lot you can do and see. Just walk around and enjoy what hostoric New Braunfels has to offer. If you see a local, ask them what they prefer.

“Beautiful especially during Christmas”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

It is just one of those simple items that keeps the small town atmosphere in New Braunfels active. It never gets old as you navigate your way through the traffic to drive aroung the circle.

This is old as far as the West is concerned. Interesting history and old courthouse. Nice bakery just off the square.
