This Austin Staple Is More Than Just a Restaurant

With menu items like trendy avocado toast, inventive weekly burger specials and handspun house cocktails, now is the time to pull up a seat at Walton’s Fancy & Staple, the old-timey chic “general store” on Sixth Street.

About that avocado toast: It starts with toasted brioche that is layered with chèvre and topped with pickled radishes and a farm egg. If going low carb, try the gorgeous brûlée grapefruit (like grilled grapefruit) served with Greek yogurt and toasted almonds. Top lunch pick goes to the Garden Sandwich packed with tomato, cucumber, spinach, sprouts and smashed avocado on multigrain. Order that with a cup of tomato basil soup.

This restaurant/ bakery/flower shop/caterer/event space mashup owned by actress Sandra Bullock also serves pastel macaron ice cream sandwiches that we’re a little obsessed with. And what Texan wouldn’t be charmed by Texas cream puffs and Lonestar Whoopie pies?
