We met for a family gathering for brunch as a group of 9. My wife and I had avoided Little Gretel for years after a string of bad experiences ending with raw chicken and a cold plate of food. We didn't choose Little Gretel, but...More

I wouldn't know if the food is any good or not. It is one of the slowest places with poor service I have ever been to.

Enjoyed Sunday brunch with little wait for a table at 1030 AM. Jalapeño kolache and plum jelly kolache were awesome. Plum jelly kolache is the closest recipe to my wife’s Czech grandmas. Tons of wait staff means service was great and quick. We can’t wait...More

Expensive and average food but nice interior. No kids menu. Great location in Boerne. Hope they improve their menu.

It had been years since we got to come back here but the food was still amazing. I've eaten apple strudel in Germany & Austria. I can honestly say its just as if I had stepped back in time to Bavaria!

Lousy service. Bad attitude. Waited almost an hour for food. Don’t waste your time there. Silverware dirty. Floors are filthy. Health department should close the place down.

When our friends suggested Little Gretel's for lunch, we didn't know what to expect. One person in our party has a "less adventuresome" palate, and was concerned everything would be German. While there are many ethnic offerings, including schnitzel, bratwurst, sauerbraten, kolaches and more, there...More

Had a good meal here with family. We tried the sauerbraten, potato pancakes, red cabbage kraut, the Emperor's Schnitzel, Gretel's Cobb Salad, a peach kolache, german chocolate cake and cinnamon ice cream. It was all good. I've attached a picture of my schnitzel, which came...More

The food was tasty but the portions were small. The waitress was not very friendly but she did her job. This was just an average place.
