Castroville, the 'Little Alsace' of TX

Has anyone been to this place? I will be driving through San Antonio and this looks like a great stop! It was founded by a Portuguese Jew who struck a deal with the Republic of Texas to bring Alsatian settlers to the region, and many people there still speak Alsatian, apparently! I would love suggestions on where to eat.

Castroville is a cute town with a very diligent police force. Anyone who has driven down Highway 90 between San Antonio and Del Rio can tell you not to exceed the speed limit in Castroville! I've driven through there MANY times, but we've only stopped at the French bakery and at the Dairy Queen.

Here is the website for their Chamber of Commerce: http://www.castroville.com/
According to the website, there is one French restaurant in town called La Normandie. There are also several B&Bs.

Good Luck!
