Girl's Weekend in Comfort, TX

For 4 years I drove past Comfort, TX on my home from college to visit my parents yet I never stopped. I didn't know what a cute town I was driving past. This weekend I spent a little less than 48 hours there for a little relaxation and antiquing with my mom and sis, and it was delightful! I'm sharing our favorite places to shop, stay, eat and drink!

STAY

Camp Comfort hosted us at their adorable and impeccably designed cabins along Cypress Creek. I really was in awe of this property which once was Comfort's first social club in the late 1800's and then turned in to a bowling alley. The bowling alley is now a beautiful common area filled with wooden tables and a great space for a small event or hanging with friends. 

Rooms and cabins range from $210 - $240 a night and most have a small kitchen, porch and jacuzzi bath tub. We stayed in Cabin #5 which has two queen beds and the most beautiful view of Cypress creek. The property is extremely serene with tons of space for kids to run around (no pets allowed). You are able to swim in the creek, but it was low while we were there so we didn't get a chance. They had fire starters and wood so we could sit around a fire whenever we wanted! We enjoyed lighting a fire, having a drink and chatting to end the night. Bring supplies for s'mores! 

I really can't recommend Camp Comfort enough, and it's in a great location just a few blocks from town.  Book your stay here (located 2 hours west of Austin)!


EAT & DRINK

Wander'n Calf Coffee + Scratch Bakery - located a few minutes from High street sits this adorable coffee shop. Not only are the coffee and pastries delicious, but their story is heartwarming. The owners have a special needs daughter and they wanted to start a business she could be a part of and feel empowered in. They bake as a family together, and she finds purpose interacting with customers and working daily in the coffee shop. There is a patio in the front and back as well as a large grassy area with German style picnic tables. The perfect space for kids to run around and play.  

High's Cafe & Store - A casual eatery serving up super fresh salads, soups, sandwiches and desserts. This was by far the most popular restaurant in town and rightly so. It was delicious and in the center of all the shops on High street. It has a great outdoor area with lots of tables for dining al fresco. 

El Torito Grill Mexican Restaurant y Cantina - We ended up eating dinner at El Torito two nights in a row, because the restaurants open at night in Comfort are almost non-existent. They serve up delicious margaritas, and we devoured their homemade queso, enchiladas, and mini corn tacos (choose from barbacoa, asada, pastor, carne guisada, pollo or carnitas meat). 

Hill Country Distillers - I absolutely loved the drinks served at Hill Country Distillers! It's family-owned and in the center of downtown with lots of outdoor space for kids and pets. They make their own spirits including gin and moonshine with a variety of flavors...prickly pear, lemon, jalapeño, grapefruit and more! There is a BBQ food truck parked outside which is a great spot for dinner since there aren't many options for dinner downtown. 

Comfort Pizza - This adorable pizzeria is located downtown next to all the shops, and has the cutest outdoor seating area. Unfortunately we didn't get to dine here, because we missed the memo that you have to reserve your dough ahead of time. We were super sad because we heard great things and it's one of the only restaurants open at night. So, take a lesson from us and call ahead to reserve your dough!

Wineries - we didn't make it to any wineries, but there are quite a few in town including Newsom Vineyards, Bending Branch Winery and Singing Water Vineyards


SHOP

8th Street Market - Housed in a historic 1940's Ford dealership, this antique shop is one of the best I've ever stepped foot in! It's a curated, multi-dealer shopper community with an eclectic mix of architectural, industrial, repurposed and vintage lifestyle antiques and art. Every booth was absolutely stunning and had some of the coolest pieces. Prices are average to high. There is also a coffee shop inside if you need some caffeine for shopping! Hours: Closed Monday, Tue-Sat: 10am-5pm, Sun: 12-5pm

Comfort Vintage and Bloom - You know when you walk in to a curated antique shop and know the owner has impeccable taste? I had that exact feeling when I stepped foot in Comfort Vintage and Bloom. Every piece was beautiful and styled amazingly as well. Hours: Closed Monday and Tuesday, Wed-Sat: 10am-5pm, Sun: 11am-5pm

Comfort Antique Mall - Located in the historic district downtown this traditional antique shop has over 30 dealers and lots of unique pieces! I bought a beautiful large rug for $130, and lots of small home decor items like stoneware and frames. There is something for everyone in here, and prices vary. Don't be afraid to make a deal when you check out! Hours: Mon-Sun 10am-5pm

Once we explored most of the shops in Comfort we drove 20 minutes to Boerne for some more antiquing! One of the great things about the location of Comfort is you're super close to Fredericksburg, Boerne and Kerrville.


I hope you consider Comfort for your next getaway as we really enjoyed exploring this historic Texas town just 2 hours from Austin! Book your stay at Camp Comfort here...I promise you won't be disappointed! See more of our trip on my Instagram stories
