“Where No Man Has Gone Before”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Actually we had been here before and the Cafe used to serve some pretty haute cuisine for such a small place. Now they seem to have throttled back and are serving rather hum-drum sandwiches, salads and a few other items instead. Hours are tuned to the star parties to catch star gazers with the munchies before and during the event. Also open for lunch Tues., Wed., Fri.and Sat. Inside air conditioned or outside patio seating is available. Not bad if you are hungry and haven't brought any comestibles with you - but you are a captive audience for selection and prices.

Thanks for the review, Steve. It's true that the Cafe has had to cut back recently. Unfortunately, the Cafe is now mostly closed. We hope that this situation will be temporary but our seeming inability to attract enough staff to keep the Cafe running is proving to be our largest stumbling block. There just aren't enough food service folks in our area to keep all of the restaurants in and around Fort Davis in staff. We are, at least, trying to continue to provide sodas, coffee, and various snacks available but we're NOT currently serving any sandwiches, quesadillas, soups, salads, etc. When/if we're able to get enough staff in place, we plan to reopen with a sandwich menu (pre-prepared .. i.e., no make-to-order anymore). It's a shame, really .. I loved our quesadillas, myself .. but there just isn't enough staff available in our remote area to support full-time operations anymore.
