    Welfare Café & Goat Barn

    Just beyond the city limits, between Boerne and Comfort, lies the historical small town of Welfare, Texas. Once desolate and almost forgotten, the former railroad shipping point nestled in the scenic Hill Country has been revitalized, revealing a truly charming backdrop for wedding celebrations.

    The Welfare Café and Goat Barn, restored through the visionary work of Gabriele McCormick, owner and head chef, are the perfect setting to host a rustic farm wedding. An actual working barn in the 1890s, the modernized structure was rebuilt to feature vaulted ceilings, reclaimed barn wood walls, a state of the art kitchen, two bars, a stage and a private loft.

    “The Goat Barn attracts brides who want that true Texas country feel for their wedding,” says Gaby. “The ambiance is laid back and comfortable but we still have all of the necessary amenities to host an upscale event.”

    Another alluring feature for brides and guests alike is the great outdoor space surrounding the Café and Barn. The expansive landscape features a brier garden, a majestic 400 year old oak tree and arbor, an Old Spanish Goat Trail and even a small creek.

    Outside the Barn, a lovely limestone patio paves the way for different options that include taking in a beautiful sunset with your wedding guests or dancing the night away under the Texas stars.

    “There is so much versatility with the indoor and outdoor spaces,” says Gaby. “It’s great for the flow of an event because people are not confined. Visitors here just love soaking up the natural surroundings including the animals that roam freely, which really captures that whole farm feeling."

    Whether you want an indoor wedding, outdoor or a nice mix of both, Welfare Cafe provides the perfect romantic country setting. And the staff there will not disappoint either. The wedding team is top notch in providing personal service and attention to detail from the moment of consultation until the last guest leaves your wedding.

    “In addition to my staff, I’m available to assist our wedding couples through each step of the planning process from suggesting vendors to helping create the perfect meal,” explains Gaby.

    Head of the culinary team at Welfare Café, Gaby uses her love of cooking to deliver uniquely delicious menus.  With an emphasis on fresh farm to table food, her flavorful dishes are well known among locals and attract diners from hundreds of miles away. She has enjoyed features in Texas Monthly, Elle Magazine and the Austin-American Statesman to name a few.

    From the stunning architecture of the restored Café and Goat Barn to the experienced professional staff and award-winning cuisine, this is truly one of Texas’ premiere Hill Country wedding sites. A hidden gem that combines history, romance and nature, Welfare Café promises to deliver an unforgettable wedding experience for you and your guests.
