People often snicker when they hear that we host events in a goat barn. That is until they see the completely restored beauty of the building. What once was truly a working barn for goats in the 1890’s, now has magnificently refinished reclaimed barn wood walls, a state of the art kitchen and two functioning bars. One of which is located in a private loft that also includes a wraparound couch, perfect for brides and their Mom's and attendants to dress and lounge before the ceremony.

The downstairs area of the Barn consists of vaulted ceilings and beautiful wooden floors that are also made from reclaimed barn wood. There is a stage where a projector and screen can be set up to assist you with a speech, play a video of two lovebirds on their journey to marriage; or of course, it is perfect for a band or a DJ to set up for an evening of fun. It is a great place to hold a cocktail reception or dinner for up to 100 guests.

Welfare is the perfect place for an outside wedding. Open the doors of the barn to the huge covered porch to use as well as the inside area. There is another stage beyond the porch accompanied by a wonderful limestone patio where you can dance the night away under the South Texas stars. In the front of the building stands a 400 year old Oak Tree with a huge canopy for shaded I do's and a perfect view of the setting sun. There is also lots of land with panoramic views or hidden valleys.

Whether you choose to hold your wedding & reception inside, outside or both, rest assured that our culinary team for the acclaimed Welfare Café, who serves as the caterer for the Goat Barn, is standing by to blow you away. Anything you desire from hors d’oeuvres to a formal sit down dining experience, we are here to provide you with personal attention and southern hospitality. Menus can be chosen from our lists or you may have a “special dinner” you want us to prepare. All you have to do is ask and we would be more than happy to make your wish come true.

The Goat Barn is the perfect location for discerning hosts who prefer originality in lieu of hotel banquet rooms. The charm of the Texas Hill Country is truly captured by the barn and its surroundings. We are located between Boerne and Comfort on IH-10 West, approximately 30 miles from Loop 410 West in San Antonio. Read less

This was my DREAM wedding venue. I actually bumped into on Pinterest and thought "I could never afford this place" and moved on. I bumped into again on wedding wire after I created my budget and was pleasantly surprised that this was actually a viable option for us, especially since we could do both the ceremony and reception there.

Gaby, the chef/owner, was amazing. She's laid back, but gets the job done, which was great for us. She is an outrageously good chef. Everything we ate at the tasting was so amazing. I was so fearful that I wouldn't get a chance to eat the appetizers that I had her set some aside for us at the bride/groom table. I was NOT going to miss out on our wedding food.

She was so flexible with us coming to see the venue, returning to take measurements of everything so I could make my decorations accordingly, allowing us drop stuff off the day before and come early the day of to set up. She answered my millions of questions through e-mail in a timely fashion. She made her staff available to me to help set up all the decorations I made. She refused to allow me on the ladder to hang up bunting and urged me to use her staff. She checked up on me throughout the day while we got ready, offering coffee, water, even whiskey to the groom. There is plenty of room to get ready in the Hofner room (the ladies were here) or the loft of the goat barn (the men).

She has the mahogany folding chairs for the ceremony and mahogany chiavari chairs for the reception so you don't have to rent those! All the decorations you need for the ceremony is an arch or fabric to drape on the branches of the 200 year old oak tree (we used voile to get the beautiful, flowy look I wanted). She let us do a sparkler send off, which some venues don't allow. Outside catering is also allowed, but why would you when her food is so amazing? Anything you want, you just have to ask. She usually says yes :D.

Thank you so much Gaby, you helped us have the PERFECT wedding.

The Welfare Cafe and Goat Barn hosted my wedding and reception on October 5, 2013, and did an amazing job! Gabby, owner/operator, went above and beyond to give my wedding the perfect twist of rustic elegance. The staff was timely and professional and the food was exquisite; their bread pudding is to die for!

Gabby made the entire event look like a walk in the park.

Thank you so much for an amazing evening!

Our daughter and son-in-law chose the Cafe for the Wedding. It was so enjoyable. My daughter loved the "laid back" Texas atmosphere. The chickens, pot-bellied pig, and donkeys blended with the chandelier, candles, flowers and elegant table placements. 1. We met with personally and communicated via e-mail with Gaby (owner) over several months. 2. We used our own vendors for cake, flowers, de- corations. We also used vendors Gaby recommended and were pleased. 3. We decorated Friday before
the wedding and came back on Sunday to take down and load up flowers, etc. 4. We put the groom's party upstairs in the barn with the flat-screen TV and snacks so they could watch football. Gaby de- corated one of the rooms in the cafe for the bride and girls to get ready with champagne and snacks, it was beautiful. 5. We served Chicken Fredericksburg, mashed pot. green beans, salad and bread pudding, it was excellent. The tables, food, atmosphere was very festive and fun.
Thank you Gaby and Staff of Welfare Cafe & Goat Barn

Gaby and her team at Welfare Cafe were AMAZING! It's a naturally beautiful venue. Our plans had to change last minute due to weather (in fact we rehearsed three options) and honestly no one would have known it hadnt been planned that way all along! Everything was fantastic! Set up (including the tent we had to get). Great coordination, super service, delicious food, amazing vibe. We had 160 people -- about half from NYC and so many said it was the best wedding ever!

The Welfare Cafe/Goat barn was the perfect spot for the rehearsal dinner I hosted. The ambiance was a perfect blend of laid back rural and Texas hill country festive. Gabby (the owner) made sure the food was superb and Hollyn (event coordinator) left nothing undone. They were very professional and a pleasure to work with. I give the Goat Barn an A+and what could be more fun than putting the Goat Barn on an invitation. I would highly recommend them for any event.

Where do I begin! I am so happy that we chose the Goat Barn to get married in. Hollyn and Gaby and all the team there were amazing! The whole place was simply beautiful and full of earthy, old fashion charm. The owner worked with us closely to make sure that our menu was just what we wanted, she even made accommodations to the menu for our vegetarian family members and suggestions that had not occurred to us. And the cake…just, WOW. Our wedding cake was the most delicious cake I have EVER eaten. I’m not even kidding, even my maid of honor came laughing to me that she “was orgasming over the cake” (carrot, cherry and coconut I think) but all the food was fresh, tasty and excellent and we had rave compliments from all our guests.

Hollyn paid close attention to detail and helped us stay within our budget, which was a huge help to us. The entire staff was friendly and courteous too! Everyone had a great time but I think we had the best time of all. Thank you Hollyn and Gaby and everyone there at the Welfare Cafe for making our special day just perfect!! We love you!! Rachel and Rene :)

My wedding was everything I could have asked for and a huge part of that was this wonderful venue. Gaby and her team really delivered and the setting is absolutely perfect if what you want is a laid back yet beautiful Texas Hill Country wedding. We got married under the beautiful 300 year old tree and had our reception in the rustic "goat barn." Our guests danced the night away (and sang karoke) on the beautiful stone patio just outside the goat barn. We barely used any decorations or flowers because the location is just perfect like it is.

The food is phenomenal, we live in Dallas so every time we are within an hour of The Welfare Cafe and Goat Barn we stop in. (FYI the veggie enchiladas and beef tenderloin are our favorites! Guests loved what we had and so did we.

Gaby was ULTRA flexible, pretty much anything we wanted to do, she was cool with it. She is up for anything! She is as another review very laid back and so don't be alarmed if she doesn't email you back in seconds after you contact her, it's something we had to get used to but she delivered at 110% every time.

If you are looking for a very rustic location where animals run free and your guests are going to have great service, food and ambiance this is for you! I'm so excited we chose to work with Gaby and the goat barn and 3 months later not a day goes by that I'm not thankful that we found her and this location, so many great memories that couldn't have been replicated anywhere else. This place is truly special!
