Open Occasionally on Occasion – Comfort, TX
Brenda and Faith at High Cafe
So, as it turned out, we spent New Year’s Eve 2011 at the Chevron off the I-10 in Comfort, TX. Check out Blessings to YOU for 2012 for the nitty gritty of our 65mph down the highway, fluids leaking out, steering wheel locking up extravaganza…. While the Dodge truck went to the dealer for the week, we hung out in the small town of Comfort. It was delightful. We met Denise the first day – she owns High’s Cafe and Store and also just opened the Plaid Goat. Everyone was super nice and the town has such a quaint, homey feel. Comfort was founded in the 1800’s by German Freethinkers who advocated reason and democracy over religion and politics. I did not know that 🙂 Impressive!
This is considered Texas Hill Country and it feels like you just stepped back in time – and that’s a good thing. The architecture and attention to detail in the refurbished buildings was impressive. Check out the pics.
