Salad and Sandwich from Tusculum Brewing Co.Vegetarian:

Mediterranean Salad-An excellent choice that includes mixed greens, an olive blend, juicy tomatoes, fresh cucumbers, feta cheese crumbles, artichokes, pepperoncinis, a generous portion of hummus, and whole-grain crackers, with a homemade garlic vinaigrette that will drench your tastebuds in flavor! The whole-grain crackers add an extra crunch to this dish and are also delectable to dip into the hummus.

Main Street BLTini (Substitute Bacon for Avocado)-This iconic BLT sandwich contains bacon, spinach, tomato, white American cheese, and mayo on top of classic Texas toast. Swap the bacon for a large helping of sliced avocado to fit this plate under the vegetarian umbrella. Enjoy your sammi alfresco in their biergarten adjacent to the Cibolo Creek Trail in downtown Boerne. 

Sauced Wing Bar

Veggie Wings-You won’t miss the chicken here. These veggie wings consist of fried cauliflower marinated in a spicy sauce and served with a side of ranch or bleu cheese for dipping. This delightful vegetarian option is great to enjoy while watching the big game on any of their large TVs located in the restaurant.

The Dodging Duck Brewhaus

Veggie Feast-Dig into a smorgasbord of fresh squash, asparagus, red and green crunchy bell peppers, portabella mushrooms, and onions atop a wild rice medley. An incredibly healthy platter that can be savored on the front patio where you can enjoy the peaceful ducks that flock to Cibolo Creek.

Las Guitarras Cocina Mexicana

Quesadilla Vegetariana-They’ve made ordering so easy with an entire “Selection Vegetariana” on the menu with several items to choose from. One such item is the Quesadilla Vegetariana which includes a 10-inch folded flour tortilla, filled with sautéed tricolor bell peppers, mushrooms, poblano peppers, scallions, and flavorful white onions. It’s served with a side of guacamole salad, sour cream, and charro beans.

The ancient grain pasta is tossed in cashew sauce, with sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, and fresh basil.

Boerne Taco House

Vegan Taco-Feast upon a taco filled with bright green zucchini, mushrooms, fresh onions, poblanos, bell peppers, and cabbage all layered in two homemade corn tortillas. This light and healthy taco will “spring” you into summer and is a noteworthy vegan option.

Gather Boerne

Avocado Toast-One of Boerne’s newest restaurant additions, Gather Boerne, offers a BEAUTIFUL avocado toast with slices of bright pink radish as a garnish on top. This ravishingly stunning plate adds crispy pumpkin seeds, arugula, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds to a generous amount of smashed avocado atop a piece of crispy multi-grain toast. Perfect for brunch, lunch, or whenever you crave a picture-worthy plate! You also have the option of gluten-free toast available upon request.
