Always have lunch at the Tea Room, when I shop by myself in Gruene. Food is yummy! Very light food, so I can continue shopping with out feeling bogged down.

Fantastic tea room fare- salads, quiche, excellent wine. Everything is top quality. Service is inconsistent. High Tea is worth a reservation.

The River House Tea Room in Gruene is a typical Texas tea room meaning that they feature sandwiches, soups, salads, a few entrees, and deserts rather than English-style high tea (although apparently afternoon tea is available by advance reservation). What is not so typical about this Texas tea room is the high-quality and really great taste of everything they serve. Everyone in our party ordered something different and everyone was very satisfied. For deserts, the hummingbird cake and strawberry trifle were outstanding. Inside the restaurant is fairly small but they also offer outdoor patio seating. However, even if you have to wait for a table, the wait is well worth your time.
