I finally crossed visiting Walton's Fancy + Staple off of my Austin bucket list this week. My friend Shannon and I had been talking about going to the Sandra Bullock-owned delicatessen + bakery for the longest time, so after waiting far too long we planned a day date and made it happen. The cafe was was oozing with charm from the moment we stepped inside. Bright, fresh cut flowers on every table, upbeat jazz music serenading the customers, beautiful pastries calling your name from behind their glass cases. Plus, they have every imaginable flavor of Italian soda. Jackpot! I chose raspberry to compliment my Sweet Turkey sandwich (sans onion) and haven't been able to stop thinking about the entire meal since. I think it's safe to say Walton's is a new favorite.
Also / if you're in Reader, hop on over and check out my new blog design. I still have some tweaking to do but I'm excited about the changes and the new, crisp look.
