Lunch Date w The Hubs: Bear Moon Bakery & Cafe Boerne,TX

The other day I rode with T on one of his jobs, seeing as it was going to be a short day we thought we'd make a date of it and stop for lunch in Boerne, TX on the way back. It was such a quaint little town. As we rode down Main Street he told me to select a restaurant. I saw two chic looking ladies walk into a cute Cafe called Bear Moon Bakery & Cafe. Seeing that as a good sign we pulled in. We were not to be disappointed! The swell of coffee, fresh baked pastries and slow simmered soups greeted us. The tables all had fresh Tulips sitting in little Amber vases welcoming and urging us to sit down. I got the Grilled Eggplant sandwich w/ their Pork Posole soup. T chose their Buffalo French Dip sandwich. Everything was so delicious. We ordered two of their cupcakes to go and agreed we would be back. 

Nestled behind this find of a restaurant was a kitchen supply store called Kiss The Cook. As we browsed the store I stopped at a pie dish display to rearrange their pie steam birds so I could take a picture. (The birdies should be together, no?) T, seeing this, made a point to purchase these cute lil pie birds while I was in the back of the store. He surprised me with them when we were back in the truck on the way home. What a sweety. I will just have to make him a pie or two very soon!

I will have to give the Bear Moon Bakery & Cafe a try the next time I am in Boerne. As far as the pie steam birds, again you stumped me. I had to look it up because I have never heard of them. I had no idea they were designed to keep the friut from bubbling over and help hold up the crust. You are just so full of wonderful insights! Keep them coming.

Laurel-Yes and if what Pam says is true I need to go back for a shopping trip.

I do remember it. I was telling Thomas about an old picture book I had when I was little with the black birds flying out of the pie. Wish I still had that book.
