The parking lot was full and people were waiting at 9:00 am on a Thursday morning. We only had about a five minute wait before being seated in the pleasantly decorated interior. The open floor plan and hard surfaces do make for a somewhat noisy environment. The menu is eclectic and offers some really good choices that are not seen... More

Good food, friendly service. Had to wait about 25 minutes for a table on Sunday afternoon but were glad we did. Everyone enjoyed their food and prices were reasonable.

Love this place. Tucked into a strip mall, there's plenty of parking, unlike lots of places in New Braunfels. Really busy on Saturday morning, over an hour wait, but they offered free coffee while you waited. I had eggs, bacon and new potatoes with gravy. Biscuits as well, which were really stellar. My wife hsd pancake and eggs, also done... More

Get there before the crowd. Breakfast is delicious! Drinks are high priced and the price for them not on the menu. Good food, good service and the cafe is decorated so country cute. Loved the atmosphere. Plan to spend about $10 a person for breakfast with a drink, kids too. There is not a kids menu. Still loved the place!

This is the best breakfast place I've found in New Braunfels. It's worth the wait. The coffee is great and they keep it coming. The French toast is my favorite!

First time having breakfast here. Go early this place gets busy. The biscuits were my favorite. Will go back again. The reason for 4 over 5 stars was a hair on my plate..... But I'm that person that things like that happen all the time. I have an eye for spotting those things.

3 of us had the 4 oz salmon with various sides, black eyed peas, salad, mashed potatoes, all were good. One had turkey and dressing. The waitress forgot the mashed potatoes but brought some, along with extra gravy as soon as we asked for them. The biscuits and cornbread were great. This place is always busy and therefor we had...

I treated a friend to Brunch at Buttermilk today and wow, great food as usual. We both ordered a biscuit with sausage gravy, grits, and one breakfast link. EVERYTHING is fresh and homemade, including the link sausage. Great job, Buttermik. We'll be back!

Breakfast was excellent. First trip was seated immediately. Second trip there was a wait of 25 minutes. Since we were traveling, chose not to wait. Would return.
