Two Years in The Horses Mouth

Two years ago this week, something opened in Buffalo,Texas, something that has sparked a freshness to the town, a sense of culture. A bookstore and coffee shop called THE HORSES MOUTH or THM as the regulars have come to call it.

Over the past two years it has became my regular hang out, sort of my second home if you will. Glenn and Laura St.John make everyone feel welcome and at home in there eclectic shop. They have brought awareness to the small town. Awareness to art, music, culture, and fun. They do everything in their power bring things that were otherwise unknown in Buffalo, to light. At one point they were having writers group meetings, art classes, and photography classes. They also have, game nights, such as , Trivial Pursuit, and Scrabble nights. And to add to the mix, they have open mic nights, so local musicians have their chance to shine.

When you walk in the door, most of the time you'll be greeted by Java, a long haired dachshund, the official THM greeter. And you'll always feel welcome. Enjoy Glenn's humor and tales of traveling the world, as Laura creates her famous latte art.

THE HORSES MOUTH, in my opinion, is one of the best things to happen to the small town of Buffalo, Texas. And, seeing as how they were awarded BUSSINESS OF THE YEAR the first year they were open, others must share my opinion.

So, if you are ever in the area, Buffalo, Texas is half way between Houston and Dallas, stop by. You wont regret it.
