This country cafe is truly in the country, about 7 miles from downtown Kerrville on Harper Road (4 miles from I10). The drive is worth it for classic country fare such as chicken fried steak, meatloaf and fried chicken. Sides include mashed potatoes, fried okra, fried onion rings, green beans and sweet potato fries all prepared with a southern touch.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Trail's End Guest House in Kerrville, Texas, for a one night stay and needed a meal a couple hours after our 4PM check-in. Café at the Ridge was on a list of restaurants at our cabin, the Sleepy Time Cabin, and we were attracted to the Cafe's ad line, "everything is made from... More

I lunched with a group of friends today. Since we were five in our group, I made a reservation the day before. When we arrived, there was no table marked as reserved for us. The Cafe was very full. We found our own way to a table in back that worked for us. Although it was busy, I still considered... More

Went to this little off-the-beaten-path spot today for breakfast and to visit the garden center next door. My daughter-in-law kept hearing good things about the place so we had to try it. The food is all homemade including scrumptious looking desserts. Had sourdough French toast which was very good and at $5, it was a great value. Also tried the... More

When you have an extended family spending the afternoon together, and no one wants to cook, finding a place that meets everyones food preferences can be challenging! My mother lives in Bandera County, and she suggested Cafe at the Ridge. It was close to an hour drive, but the Hill Country at this time of the year made for a... More

We drove up for an early dinner after a show in downtown Kerrville. The café and bakery are in two ends of the same building. There was live music in the bakery end. I ordered the mixed grill, beef, chicken, squash, onion, and bell pepper. It was very good. Also ordered sautéed spinach which had some sort of marinade on... More

This is a laid back place with great home cooking. The locals eat there quite often. Their deserts are to die for! Try the coconut pie it's like Grandma used to make. Their grilled tilapia and their meatloaf are my favorites. Also the staff treats you like family. This is a great place. Oh...and they have live country music on... More
