I can't say enough about the food here; it's simply wonderful! Chef Carol Hill obviously loves what she does because it shows. My husband still talks about the potato soup we had there. The quiche du jour is an excellent choice for a weekend brunch before or after shopping in Historic Gruene. Since these visits were in the summer, and we ate outside, I of course had iced tea with my meals. I had a choice of plain, sweetened, or flavored (I don't remember what that was). The sweet tea was brewed with care and not bitter or 'stale' and some place's iced tea can taste. I have not yet tried the 'Afternoon Tea' that includes a choice of hot tea, tea sandwiches, scones, small tarts, cookies and chocolate dipped strawberries, though I certainly plan on it. I'll be sure to provide a separate review of that - and the available teas - when I do. The River House Tea Room is tucked in a corner of Gruene and has a warm, cozy Texas home kind of feel to it when you walk up. I've been there a couple of times on pretty days an always sat outside. Despite being away outside, service was always attentive and friendly and the chef came out on one visit and talked to several of the guests.
