There’s no denying it. A good brunch not only fills the tummy, it brings people together. What could be better than breakfast mixed with lunch? It’s the best of both worlds, as far are we’re concerned. Here in New Braunfels, brunch spots are plentiful. Come fill your body and soul with these great brunch restaurants.


The Buttermilk Café


Offering one of New Braunfels best breakfasts menus, The Buttermilk Café offers both sweet and savory in one fell swoop. By this we mean their infamous chicken and waffles. For those with a more traditional breakfast craving, we suggest The Café Breakfast, offering the classics on a big breakfast plate that sets you up until dinner. Get there early to avoid a line but if you don’t, you can nurse a delicious coffee while you wait.


Union Station Diner


This is where “the friendly folks meet and eat.” It is a neighborhood diner, after all! Located in New Braunfels’ historic district, greasy spoon, here you come! And being a neighborhood hangout also means Union Station is easy on your wallet. All of your breakfast favorites will be here, including custom omelets and Belgian waffles. But latecomers beware – they close at 2:30 pm.


The Downtowner


Housed in an unassuming whitewashed façade, inside are breakfast delights so yummy, you’ll wonder why you didn’t come here sooner. With fresh-from-the-farm eggs, single source coffee, locally-sourced veggies, and an amazing variety of proteins that will keep you humming with delight. No need to wake up early for this gargantuan meal, rather, come later for their great happy hour deals. Try the chicken biscuit sandwich with honey butter, it’s divine.


Naegelin’s Bakery


No brunch spot list would be complete without a shout out to the almighty pastry shop. This one’s a doozy – it is the oldest bakery in Texas. An unbelievable 150 years in operation and counting, it is also one of the oldest continuing operating businesses in the state. The Granzin family still runs the bakery, and strives to maintain their special blend of consistency and quality into each sweet pastry they sell. Their strudels and kolaches are the stuff of legend. They also have delicious desserts for later in the day.

A favorite of New Braunfels residents, this is the best specialty coffee and breakfast crossovers in town. They serve both delicious breakfast and lunch fare every day until 4 pm.
