We are staying at the Lake Bastrop Lodge(which is BEAUTIFUL, by the way.) that the 1441 cafe is located in, and yesterday when we came to eat it was.. Do-able. Food was a bit greasy and expensive. Over $7 for ONE omelotte with a few potatoes on the side. Oh, and all it had on it was ham and cheese. No choices for other toppings.

We came in this morning and ordered our food. In total, my party had six breakfast tacos. It took over an hour to get our food. And when we did get our food, we opened our tacos and the eggs inside weren't even cooked all the way. I took my knife and could twirl the liquid egg whites all around. That's how raw they were.

The staff were very helpful. Coffee refills constantly, always checking on our table to see if we were okay. When we finally did get our food, the waitress helping our table did us a favor and made our meal totally free.

In all, the food was mediocre. If we came back to the Lake Bastrop Lodge, we will not eat at the 1441 cafe again.

Loved the fresh green beans. I think a daily special would be wonderful! My family had the chicken and raved about it. Really on top of drink refills. Nice staff. But definitely try a special. Hard to find healthy options on the menu. Hoffbrau salad was delish!

We were heading to Bastrop for dinner and passed by this cafe. We decided to turn around and try this place out. I'm glad we did! Very friendly waitresses, great food, and homemade pie for dessert! Chicken fried chicken and chicken fried steak was great! Its actually the cafe of a lodge/hotel but the food is made from scratch and good! Check it out!!

Nearly every Friday I go to this place for the Fried Catfish special. Best around. Sometimes if I miss a Friday special, I just order it at regular price for dinner. The jalapeno hush puppies are great and the cole slaw is wonderful. They have hand battered chicken strips or steak fingers that my kiddos love as well.
