Little Gretel – The first place we stopped for breakfast on the way to Fredricksburg was in Boerne at Gretel’s . Gretels is a German/Chez restaurant that had omelets filled with gouda cheese, eggs benedict with creamy hollandaise, apple pancakes and kolaches. Now I had never heard about kolaches until I was in Omaha with Jake’s family and they were at a restaurant where we ate breakfast. His grandmother used to make them so they were all very excited to see them on a menu. We ordered a poppy seed and peach and farmers cheese kolache. They weren’t a hit with the table but mom and I really liked them. I highly recommend the eggs benedict they were extremely good!
Silver Creek – After a long
morning of shopping in Fredricksburg, we decided it was time for a late lunch
and we stopped at this great little German restaurant that was nice and cool so
it was refreshing to sit down and cool off for a while. One thing that was on
the menu was a Schnitzel Sandwich. It was a very thinly sliced pork tenderloin
that is breaded and put on toasted rye bread that mixed with a Cherry Lime
Frozen Margarita was perfect for a hot summer afternoon.

Bucees - Now this is a place…gas station…farmers market…deli…jerkey/sausage…Bucee Beaver apparel…western home décor…and normal convenience store stuff. We stopped in for some fuel and then picked up some stuff for dinner, some souvineers and April even picked up a spoon rest.
Twin Sisters Bakery – We had plans to eat at the Gunther House this morning, however when we called there was an hour and a half wait and they don’t take reservations so that wasn’t going to work for us on a Sunday morning. So we looked for another alternative and the Twin Sisters was highly recommended. This as a great local place with a quirky décor and an interesting menu, you could make your own tacos so mine included egg, chorizo, cheese and avocado on a whole wheat tortilla.
Guenther House – The Guenther
House is part of the Pioneer Flour Mill. It is off in an off-set area of San
Antonio. The restaurant is in the bottom of the museum and gift shop and there
is outdoor seating as well. As you walk in there is a case of pastries that
range from coffee cake, upside down pineapple cake, strudels and the biggest
cinnamon rolls you can imagine. When you sit down the serve you with the
freshest rolls that are light and fluffy and their menu is similar to a tea
house. I ordered a spinach salad with grilled chicken breast and the table
shared a sampling of the desserts.
