Whether it’s a dish from your childhood or a favorite meal,

comfort food occupies a very special place in the hearts of

many. For rainy afternoons, long work days or a longing for

a taste of the past— everyone has a favorite dish that warms

their heart.

With The Leaning Pear, Cypress Creek Cafe, Linda’s

Fine Foods and The Back Porch, Wimberley has excellent

comfort food to suit every craving. Each restaurant draws

from a different style of cuisine to take comfort food to

another level.

Located on River Road, The Leaning Pear specializes in

cuisine cooked with the ingredients of the Hill Country.

Since 2007, Matthew and Rachel Buchanan have strived to

make their restaurant a place to relax and enjoy. The Leaning

Pear serves lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday with

brunch on Sundays.

For Chef Matthew Buchanan, comfort food at the

Leaning Pear is all about Chicken and Grits— a staple in the

south. Starting with a boneless chicken breast, vacuum sealed

and cooked long and slow, Buchanan gives it a quick finish

in his wood fired oven to give the outside a nice crispiness.

Using Homestead Mill grits spiced with poblano peppers,

cheese and bacon, Buchanan serves the finished meal in a

cast iron skillet with a seasonal vegetable from the farmer’s

market. “It’s just one of those dishes that has southern

ties and feel. It’s kind of comfort foodie,” Buchanan said

referring to the ‘foodie’ trend of unique, gourmet food. “We

put our own little twist on it.”

Cafe and Buzzard Bar has a different take on serving up

comfort to visitors. Owners Randy and Trish Uselton
