Yep, we showed up in Warrington like eager beavers, but the vendors were still setting up their tents!  Not late to the party this time; just a few days early.

... oh, well - there's always ROYER's Rountop Cafe!

FYI: on the outside chance that someone out there hasn't heard about Royer's Roundtop Cafe, let me bring you up to speed:

  • simply the best 'country bistro' in Texas (pop. 84)

  • home of Bud the Pie Man and his killer pies

  • voted 'one of the places you must visit before you die'

  • featured on: Food Network  and the Texas Country Reporter,

  • featured in: Bon Appetite, Washington Post, Houston Chronicle, Dallas Morning News, Austin American Statesman, Texas Monthly

  • worth the trip just to see Bud hold court and listen to his 'Budisms

  • wonderful family business with wonderful & creative people

  • my favorite place to eat

Today we had the cafe's BLT.  To call it a "BLT" is a disservice to this sandwich.  Grilled shrimp, thick bacon, some great sweet & spicy sauce, red onions, and lettuce on a long bread roll.  2DIE4

For dessert, we had hunks of pecan pie, buttermilk pie, and apple pie with crumbly granola topping - all a la mode of course, (btw, it is more expensive without the ice cream) l

Also, want to mention a really cute tent we saw called "Sweet Peas".  She is out of Athens, Texas and carries all the best to feather your nest.

A few treasures we did score!

We went last year on Thursday afternoon, fought rain and shopped around a little BUT we were there bright & early for Friday and we got 2 eat at Royer’s 2 nights in a row! LITS (Life is too short) to not indulge!
Am heading out at the b*tt crack of dawn in the a.m. and hoping to find some treasures. I’ll be sure & leave something for y’all if you’re going back. Like I could haul all of that stuff home in a Tahoe.

Your fashions inspire to enjoy life ! Though a little surprised about your faith; I should have known anything as creative and wonderful as your selection had to come from His inspiration! Thank you for helping me feel young again.
