My ladies lunch group enjoyed a delicious meal today at the Cafe. It is a short drive out from the main part of Kerrville, but well worth it. The menu is varied, focusing somewhat on "comfort" foods. Portions are very generous, so take a good appetite. I had a delicious burger, one had fried catfish with fried green tomatoes, another... More

Me and my husband are lunch and we're pleased. The chicken fried chicken was delicious and so was the bacon cheeseburger. They also have a bakery, and a garden area outside where you can purchase plants and other gardening accessories. Great place!

Actually, my husband and I were in Kerrville with eleven other couples, and the trip organizer scheduled both meals there one day. Twelve ladies had lunch while the guys played golf; all 24 of us went back for dinner. The menu is quite varied, and the food was delicious. I can't say enough good things about the service. If they... More

There has been live music and it adds extra fun to the evenings outing. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. They have baked goods and... More

Wanted a nice hot lunch...daily special, until I found out if was Bison Chili! We had already ordered 2 cokes. Menu had nothing of interest today, since their prices are not as affordable as the daily lunch special. We decided to leave and went to pay for our cokes. $6.00 plus tax for 2 regular size fountain cokes! That did... More

We have eaten here several times. The kitchen is consistent and we enjoyed every meal. Very fair pricing on both food and drinks . I ordered the Rib Daily Special with mashed potatoes and fried cabbage. The ribs were excellent and both sides were tasty and cooked perfectly. Deb had their Meatloaf, which we have ordered before and is consistently... More

This destination has everything: Native plant nursery, gift shop, bakery, restaurant and a place to just meet friends for a glass of wine. We've been to the Ridge several times but never for lunch. We started with some excellent onion rings that were lightly battered and very crisp. We were able to heat the leftovers up at home and retain... More

Waitstaff is friendly. It is several miles outside of Kerrville, but it is a scenic drive. We have not been disappointed with breakfast, but found dinner not to be ad enticing. The place had a very countrified ambiance. Visit the bakery and garden store while you are there.
