Cute out of the way place

This is a local cafe and bakery between Kerrville and Harper. The pulled pork sandwich was served correctly with cole slaw on the homemade bun, and was a generous serving. We also had the Greek salad (though it wasn't called that on the menu) which looked very unusual. All the ingredients except... read more

A group of us traveling in from various distant towns met at the Cafe at the Ridge for a special birthday dinner. When we asked if we could bring in a cake so that it wouldn't melt in the car, we were told, "No." The menu is misleading concerning entrees and which ones come with sides and which ones do... More

Thank you for your review, M L. We are very sorry to see that you and your party did not enjoy your time here, especially since you were here to celebrate a birthday.

The atmosphere was nice. The waitress was sweet. The food lacked flavor. I ordered the chicken fried chicken and it was dry and tasted a little sour. The beans lacked seasoning and didn't seemed to be fully cooked. The gravy was so thick you could stand your fork in it. The mashed potatoes were dull lacking flavor as well. The... More

We've been eating here for a while. The food, especially the chicken fried chicken, is awesome. The staff…well, I really can't call them "staff". It is too impersonal. They treat you like family. And the bakery. Oh, words escape me! The pies are just like my Mother made, and she was the best. Where else can you go and ask... More

We stopped in for lunch here as we were looking at properties in the area. While it is a cafe, bakery, plant nursery, & gift shop all on a plot of land, my review is strictly focused on the cafe. Our waitperson was very nice. She paid attention to us but didn't "hover" which was appreciated. We ordered a couple... More

It reminded me of one of the California communes of the 60's but way cleaner. It is mostly a plant nursery but real cutesy charm and small gift shops. The best part of the place is the restaurant and bakery. It was a beautiful afternoon so we chose to eat outside on the front porch and enjoy the Hill Country... More

The moment you enter the Cafe at the Ridge, you are hooked if only for the aroma of bakery goodies. The Chicken Wrap I had was very good. The side of broccoli was fresh and appeared to be steamed. Husband had chicken fried chicken with white cream gravy and fries. There was nothing left on either of our plates. I... More

Wow! The food is delicious here! They have good variety and it is prepared beautifully. Their cream pies are to die for and they offer a very large selection of home-made cookies. I understand that they make their own ice cream but we didn't try it. They also offer Texas wines by the glass.
