Just enjoyed a three egg spinach, bacon and swiss omelet served with toasted homemade bread and potatoes. The coffee is served piping hot and I got one to go. The Chess Club is open 8 to 2 except on Monday. Don't pass it up!

Thank you Kathy for your kind words! Just a heads up we are closed on Tuesdays too. I wouldn't want you to show up and we would be closed. Hope you have a great day! Thanks again!

We had the blueberry Belgian waffles and the French toast. Both were excellent and the service was outstanding. The French Toast was the best ever. Don't miss this place. Oh yea, the bacon was thick and delicious as well.

The food here is so delicious. Tasted just like homemade. The cafe is in an old house in Blanco. Great atmosphere and the waitstaff was spot on. A must try in Blanco, Texas.
