Blue Bonnet Cafe-Marble Falls

March 18, 2010

It never fails. When I tell people I’m from Marble Falls, they inevitably ask “Oh! Do you know The Blue Bonnet?” Of course they are referring to The Blue Bonnet Café which serves up the most down-home breakfasts, the most mouthwatering Texas size cinnamon rolls and of course their specialty- pies with meringue piled high to the Texas sky. If you’re just passing through on Highway 281 between Burnet and Johnson City, stop for the pie and coffee (pie happy hour is from 3 to 5 Monday through Friday). Their pies are made daily and there are too many choices to list. Suffice it to say, you’ll have a hard time deciding!

On my last birthday my husband treated me to a Blue Bonnet breakfast. The place is so welcoming. There are few places left that are reminiscent of a true diner. You can sit at the bar or slide into a booth with vinyl covered seats; The Blue Bonnet Café brings back childhood memories, when fast food didn’t exist and good service was priority. It is also one of the few places round that still serves up thick, soft ‘Texas Toast.’ They also serve up grits. How often do you make grits? Slathered with a little butter and a dash of salt they are a true Texan’s delight.

Opening in 1929 on Main Street, the Café has been at its present location since 1946. They accept checks, or there is an ATM located within the café. For a look at their menu and hours, check out their website at

Stop by The Blue Bonnet next time you’re in Marble Falls or just traveling through. You’ll enjoy the down-home food and you’ll be one of the many who can say “Yeah! I’ve been to The Blue Bonnet.”
