A Community United By Food

Our motto is simple. Through food anything is possible. We will source fresh, local, and flavorful. Our shared passion for delicious dishes will unite the community we all call home. We are Lake Highlands. We are a Community United By Food.


At Cedar & Vine, our mission is clear: create a food and drink menu that resonates with the community. Our flavors are fresh and bold, our preparation clean and concise. We have uniquely prepared pastas, fish, and salads. Our bar menu focuses on top of the line wines, liquors, and beers. Our wine menu is global, our beer menu local - with a few national rotators sprinkled in. There is something for everyone at Cedar & Vine, and if you can't find it on our menu, ask for the chef, and Chris will make you something you can enjoy!

Jimmy grew up in Lake Highlands - and after attending Moss Haven Elementary, Forest Meadow Junior High, and graduating from LH in '02, Jimmy went on to go to college at St. Edward's University in Austin, TX. After graduating, Jimmy jumped into restaurant management in 2008 starting with a modest pizza place in Little Elm, TX. He has always desired to create and open a restaurant in his hometown of Lake Highlands. With a hands-on approach to management, you'll often see Jimmy running around the dining room making sure everyone is having as good a time as he is.
