We drove by this restaurant many times...looks very quaint and just across the street from the river park that runs through Boerne. We decided to try it for breakfast. My eggs benedict were just so-so...the eggs were poached poorly and the hollandaise sauce had an...More

We were hungry for some German food. This fit the bill. It's a small restaurant but has a good selection of food.

I haven't had real German food like this since I was stationed in Germany in the 1970s. All of the schnitzel dishes are excellent and obviously made fresh to order, as are the sides and sauces. My mouth is watering at the thought of this...More
