We were unaware that chefs from the Czech Republic make an annual pilgramage to Boerne to cook at Little Gretel. Nice surprise. Saurbraten was nicely complemented by fresh dumplings including a variation from the visiting chefs. Best in the area. Rueben sandwich is outstanding Once...More

Maybe it was because it was so HOT outside, but the service seemed slow. The food is generic but of good quality, so I cannot knock it nor can I recommend it.

We've eaten here several times. I always get the Eggs Benedict. Today's special was Corned Beef Hash, my husband's favorite. Coffee's good. And they have kolaches. Only quibble I have is with the ubiquitous potatoes. They always taste left over and are often barely heated.
