We only had an hour, would have loved to stay longer over wine or desert and coffee. But the meal was wonderful. There is a wait for the food BUT it is because everything is cooked FRESH and it is worth it. Loved the Chicken Fredericksburg and a great wine list.

This Cafe is a restored Post Office just south of Waring Texas and it has a Boerne TX address. You can find it on Google maps about 7 miles off the Interstate 10.
