There are only a few options for breakfast along the Riverwalk/ Alamo area so we decided to give this a try. Breakfast was ok, but nothing to write home about. Maybe their lunches are better? I would say at least this was better than McDonald’s.

One of my favorite places in the world! I've come here since I was in elementary school. The split-pea soup is outstanding and we always order a pitcher of homemade root beer. Mmmmmm!

Offers great German food. Will celebrate 100 years in business later this year. Strudel was wonderful. Enjoyed the mixed sausage plate. Friends raved about Rueben sandwich.

Three couples ate breakfast here, and we all ordered something different. The rye toast that I had with my eggs over medium was a huge surprise. The eggs were done to order, and the hash browns & sausage,patties were tasty. I was fortunate enough to...More
