Lunch today was just mahhvelous dahling! My fun lady friends and I tried Cafe' Kranzler and I think we are all as happy as can be that we did. I will return, and soon! This was one of those lunches where we were not in a hurry to be hurried, and we were grateful that it was not crowded and we could linger. The other two had coffee - in a nice large mug - and they said it was wonderful...at least I heard KM say it was wonderful...and she is the Queen of Coffee so I don't doubt that it was wonderful indeed!
I really want to go back for breakfast - so I can have coffee too. I prefer a cold drink with lunch and that is what I was having today. They DO serve breakfast all day though, so I can go there on one of those days where I've let it get beyond 10:00 without eating (that magical time when so many places stop serving breakfast). The breakfast offerings looked incredibly yummy.
I'm starting a new paragraph for my drink - it was just delicious. I'm not a huge Green Tea drinker - but this was awesome! Lightly sweet, delicately green - and served in a lovely vessel with glass dots that you don't notice until your drink sinks below the first line of dots. Soooo pretty (I love pretty glassware). Our wait staff kept the coffee filled and my tea refilled repeatedly and she managed it without appearing to hover...but, she showed up on a regular basis. A hallmark of really good service in my opinion. (I'm sure you are gathering that we had a very nice experience today!)
KM as usual, just had coffee, but IB and I each ordered lovely lunch dishes - both of us raved over them. I'm a crappy blog photographer because, once again, I've dug into the meal when the light bulb goes off in my brain..."uh, I was going to take a picture"... oh well - you get to see food that shows the "inside" of the dish...yeah, yeah, that's the ticket! I meant to do that :-)
|Fresh Brat Sandwich|
Cafe' Kranzler is located at 2412 Padre Blvd. - it's fairly new to the island - but with food of this quality - I bet they will become an island favorite in short order! Now, another good note...the lunch and breakfast prices are really reasonable! My sandwich and iced tea with tax totalled $12.44. For a meal of this caliber - you cannot beat that! Dinner, as is to be expected, appears more expensive - but no more so than other quality dining venues. I didn't take the time to look at the menu in depth though. We were too busy catching up on the happenings in our lives. I love having lunch with these two ladies. I always laugh a lot and walk out on a happy note.
OH, OH...yes....before I forget... if you are at the point of thinking about New Year's Eve...these (below) were handed out with our menu...two seatings for a grand New Year's Eve Dinner. It looks absolutely divine...and I would expect the quality will be in the "superb" category. If you are interested - I'd make reservations soon. It's not a big place and I bet they sell out soon. Their phone number is 956-772-1840 if you are interested in this "quality dining experience on South Padre Island"!
As I always say...Bon Appetit, y'all !!!
