This building has known many faces originally it was “G.W. Donaldson & Co. Hardware Store” and later “Bond’s Café and Restaurant” in the 1930’s. It has housed several businesses, some of the most notable being the original location for the Paper Bear and Wesray’s Café. We opened our doors in February 2005, and we’re very proud to be a continuing part of the rich history of this sacred place, now known as San Marcos, Texas.
