If small towns had a front yard, the downtown square would be it. The square is one of the first things visitors notice when driving through rural Texas towns. We are fortunate to have a great “front yard” that tells a story and leaves envy deep inside those passing through wishing they had something quite as nice. It is a place where people gather, pass by everyday, and around which the town revolves. Downtown is the hub for a small town. Luckily, Comanche, Texas, has a phenomenal atmosphere on the square by hosting a variety of small businesses and events!
One of the main features of Comanche’s “front yard” is all of the places to shop and browse! From antiques to a bridal store, and everything in between, you will not go home empty handed. Walking around the square from store to store and searching for the best bargains will surely work up an appetite. Good thing you do not have to go far. There are restaurants and dining options on each side of the square. Here is a more in depth breakdown:
Country Chic Bridal
A bridal boutique with small town charm and big city style. Country Chic bridal has a beautiful gown for every bride and every budget.
A newly reopened boutique where you can find the perfect outfit for a casual Saturday or a special occasion. Styles are current, service is personalized, and if you aren’t local, you can also check them out online!
Courthouse Square Antique Mall
Antique mall housing dozens of booths. This is the perfect place to spend a few hours out of the heat, reminiscing about the good ol’ days and uncovering hidden treasures.
This combination coffee shop, cafe, and antique store is one of the unique, must-see places on the Comanche Square. Gourmet coffee, Italian cream soda, homemade pastries, and delicious sandwiches are on the menu. Browse collectibles and antique furniture while your order is being prepared. We recommend the BLTA!
Residents of the surrounding areas put their art, knives, crafts, and handcrafted snacks on display (and up for sale) in the late 1800s-style mercantile filled with the talents of local makers.
One of the newest additions to the Comanche Square, featuring women’s, men’s, and children’s clothing sections, shoes, and a beautiful home decor collection. Woven Roots is a great place to find a gift or a treat for yourself!
Unique Antiques and Collectibles
Curated antique collection featuring many collector’s pieces! From gas pumps and porcelain signs to one of a kind jewelry, you’ll make more than a quick stop in this store.
Fine dining meets Comanche, Texas at Harvest. A seasonal menu of steak, seafood, wild game, and family favorites are expertly prepared by executive chef and owner, Todd Sanders. Perfect for date night, special occasions, or a consistently delicious meal.
A casual eatery with a menu ranging from sandwiches and pastas to burgers and chicken-fried steak. Located in one of the historic buildings on the Square, and as the most tenured restaurant on the block, Starbeau’s is a longstanding Comanche staple.
The sweet treat counterpart to the Comanche Mercantile, the Soda Shop is a step back in time to the days of drug stores, soda fountains, and jukeboxes. The 1950s replica soda shop features malts, shakes, splits, and scoops.
A casual atmosphere accompanied by great burgers, daily specials, and a good selection of fried appetizers. A great place to bring your family, out of town guests, or stop in for a quick meal.
The Jean Marie Suites
