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!
