Our Story

Europe is such a beautiful, inspiring country and I have spent most of my life there. European people have a true passion for cooking and the cuisine is a natural part of the culture. It is as much about the quality of the products and the preparation of the meals as it is about eating and enjoying it with those you love.

When I moved to America the one thing I missed most was the food back home, in particular, the wonderful delicacies sold in the Brasseries of Paris. From butter croissants and hand-made Crepes, to piping hot paninis and delicious European wines. It has always been my dream to bring my favorite slices of Europe to my new home here in New Braunfels.

The dishes we introduce to Le Citron are traditional European recipes with a modern twist, all of our authentic European cuisine is baked fresh in house, meaning no GMO's, high fructose corn syrups, or added food coloring. Our hand selected Coffee bean is a blend of three smooth & mild beans, with one of the roasted beans, you are supporting a small family plantation in Honduras. We appreciate our community so much, thank you for your continuous support for small businesses and making my little European cafe dream come true.
