“2 NOTCHES BELOW "ALPO"”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

I have just experienced the nastiest lunch I could ever imagine! Italian meatloaf (see photo) was mostly "filler" and very little meat -mashed into little round patties -(gross). The mac & cheese was touted by waitress --a whole lotta mac and very little cheese with raw serranos diced in it. Water based mashed potatoes -flavorless. Best item was canned corn (difficult to mess that up). To top it off,...it olnly took 30 minutes to receive this epicurean delight. New Braunfels is the mecca of bad food save -Myron's, Gruene Door, Mcadoo's. Cross another one of the list of potential dining places. one word "yuuuuck".

“Loved the food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

I loved this restaurant, it had a good vibe to it just walking in and the food I ordered was presented beautifully and tasted great. The server knew the menu and was very professional. The bakery was incredible. I loved the sunflower seed bread so much that I decided to order it for my restaurant. We now give our customers this bread at Alpine Haus and it always gets good reviews. I recommend this place very highly.

“Good Breakfast”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I have been going to this area for many years and somehow I don't recall ever having noticed or been to this restaurant. The breakfast was good but not gourmet. It is the typical breakfast, eggs bacon and toast, that one gets at a Denny's or similar type breakfast place. The waffles and pancakes are good. The service was good. While there were many customers there was adequate seating when we were there.The bakery area has numerous sweets from which to choose.

“No brotchen”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We used to buy brotchen at Friesenhaus restaurant in New Braunfels, but they quit making it. We were told that Theis bakery had brotchen. They don't. They have bollilos with sesame seed and poppy seed. In their defense, Theis has never, to my knowledge, claimed to have brotchen. If he is a master German baker he will hopefully purchase the oven and add brotchen to his menu. That would make this restaurant and bakery darn near perfect. As a side note, the bakery sweets are much, much better than authentic German ones.

Mr. Theis makes brötchen in the Bad Kreuznach style, as this is his area of birth, and all of his recipes date back to the 1840s, so everything is made from scratch with no preservatives. Which regional style of German brötchen are you accustomed to eating? Was there any particular city whose taste you prefer?
