Great little place just minutes from Kerrville!

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... read 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.

If you like great food and a great view this is your place. This place is between Kerrville and Harper. It also has a garden where you can walk around after your meal.

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.

Just went tonight for our first visit. Food was fantastic. Took home lots of baked goodies. Also tasted phenomenal. However it seemed like since we were not regulars we weren't really important to the servers/ management. We waited more than ten minutes just for our drinks. Being a server myself, I didnt see any excuse for it. The decor and... More
