Stop by Espressions Coffee & Art for lattes, weekend brunch buffets and the occasional tea parties. Who knows, you might even run into Rick Perry. Find them at 111 West Wantke in Round Top.
Everybody thinks about visiting Round Top during antique weeks, but a stay in this sleepy little town (population 90) during the off-season offers an entirely different experience. Find decadent pies at Royer’s Café, tasty Mexican fare at Los Patrones, wood-fired pizzas at Bistro Napoletana and those amazingly-gorgeous Texas-sized chicken fried steaks at Teague's Tavern. Plus, you'll always find culture at Festival Hill and local galleries and antique shops. So what are you waiting for? Round Top makes any Austin-Houston journey worth the trip.
