We had researched good breakfast places and this one got the best reviews. We love breakfast but we're not impressed. It was good buy not great. Biscuits were a little soggy. Service was good and restaurant was clean. Probably won't eat here again.

I attempted to go to lunch here once and decided the wait was too long. Went back a few months later and waited it out.... and was very happy I did. Great food. 3/5 of the table got chicken fried steak, and for good reason. The fried okra is also delicious. The service was awesome. Overall it was a excellent... More

We were visiting for the weekend, to float the river. The Buttermilk Cafe had a great looking menu. It was Mother's Day so we knew it would be busy. They have call ahead seating, which is a must! I'm not sure what a normal weekend is like, but I would bet pretty busy. IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT! From the... More

Our family went for brunch for the first time to this restaurant. There were 7 of us and the service was excellent. The place was really busy and we had to wait 45 minutes on Sunday around 11 a.m. but the wait was worth it. The toasted banana bread was delicious. Several of our family had the buttermilk pancakes and... More

Great food, staff extremely helpful and nice. Can't believe we had not seen this restaurant before, will definitely go again. Had eggs, sausage and biscuit - all cooked fresh and tasted great. Fantastic coffee.

Owned and run by the same chef who used to own the River City Tea House in Gruene. The breakfasts are always delicious and the pre-meal cinnamon cake is awesome. I've never had a bad meal there and would suggest ordering the Strawberries Romanoff early. My only complaint is there always a wait but I hope this will be minimized... More

I'm stuck in a rut. Every time I go there, I order the same thing. The salmon over creamy cheese grits. MMM. Very good. The iced tea is also freshly brewed just the way I like it and I am very picky about my iced tea. Great place for lunch.

I had been wanting to try this café for quite a while, so when a couple of my cousins suggested we have lunch here I jumped at the chance. Despite our arriving at noon on a week day, there was no wait or a line of any kind at the door. We were ushered to a nice table by a... More
