Growing up in Boerne, Texas, I always heard about Comfort. This year especially, I’ve been taking out of town guests for an afternoon day trip there. It’s a 15 minute drive to a quiet town with some great finds. This trip, I was the chauffeur for my mom and her high school friend from Philadelphia.
Five minutes there and we stumbled on an artist painting in the street.
Shopping works up an appetite so we popped into High’s Cafe. This is a great spot for sandwiches, salads, and soups. It closes before dinner so plan accordingly.
After we ate, it was back to shopping. One of my favorite shops there is a newer one called 8th Street Market. Everything is so beautifully merchandised, I hate to touch. I also hate the thought of buying anything and ruining the vignettes. The Elephant Story is another must see. It’s a little pricey but great for gifts.
One of the things we’re always on the lookout for is antique silverware and china. My mom is intent on having a Downton Abbey themed Christmas party. I just go along with it at this point. She has a 6 person table and enough settings for 18 minimum.
Another favorite stop is Branch on High for a wine tasting. Everyone inside is friendly and you’ll catch yourself talking to other visitors.
If you’re looking for a place to stay in Comfort, Hotel Faust is right in town as well as plenty of B&B’s. It’s an amazing town to go for a quiet stay and you’ll leave rested.
