Walton’s Fancy & Staple
Actress Sandra Bullock owns and occasionally visits this café and florist on busy 6th Street. In a beautifully restored, pre-18th century building, Walton’s Fancy & Staple attracts a big breakfast and lunch crowd. Baristas pull expert espresso drinks on a La Marzocco espresso machine; customers order pastries and sandwiches (made with house-baked bread) from a counter. When possible, the café menu features stellar ingredients from area farms, like hydroponically grown lettuce from Bluebonnet and chèvre from Water Oak Farm.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
