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. Cornbread or a roll and two sides come with each entree. All baked goods are made in their bakery and include wonderful meringue pies. They serve breakfast until 11 am and salads, sandwiches and the "main event" until closing. You can order half portions of several of the sandwiches and entrees, including the chicken fried steak. The cafe is busy with locals and repeat customers but the service is efficient and friendly so tables are usually available. They are open from 9am to 3 pm on Sundays and closed on Mondays. Tuesday through Saturday they are open from 8am to 8 or 9pm. As you pay at the cash register don't forget to get some of their home baked cookies to sustain you for the drive home.
