“Great for any meal, not just desserts!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Oh WOW. What blew me away was not the desserts. It was the shrimp and grits, shrimp po boy, and salad. My sons enjoyed their sandwiches, and my husband and I tasted a few things, then had to stop ourselves from ordering the entire menu. The desserts were good but not excellent. The salads and specialty dishes were amazing. My husband and I are picky about good food but WOW was this place great! TIP: Get there early because parking and seating is limited.

“Uniquely delicious sweet treats!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Walton's Fancy & Staple is a perfect spot to grab a tasty pastry and coffee when in downtown Austin. Featuring specialties such as the Lonestar Whoopie Pie (sweet potato whoopie with cream cheese filling), White Trash Deep South Mix and Sassy As Seasoning, the menu is as fun to read as the food is to taste!

“Wine Country Picnic”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

My friends and I stopped into Walton's to grab picnic provisions for our trip out to wine country. We all raved about how delicious their coffee was, and I thoroughly enjoyed the ham on pretzel sandwich. Best of all are the cookies, though... They're to die for!

“Pleasant.”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Went here for breakfadt and is always good.Breakfast pastries are fresh and French bread pancakes are so yummy.Lots of stuff to look at while waiting since they sell stuff there and are a florist shop also.My personal favorite thing to buy there is the Southern trash mix.It is like the chex mix you have at parties but with powdered sugar on it.Great to give as gifts.
