Greenhouse Craft Food Brings Farm to Table Fare to Round Rock

A new farm to table restaurant has opened up in Round Rock, providing suburbanites with meals made from fresh and local produce. The suburbs may be known for family friendly chain restaurants but Greenhouse Craft Food provides an alternative that includes healthy kid menus.

The welcome sign at Greenhouse Craft Food.

A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu – Las Vegas, Chef Rob Snow moved to Austin in 2007 and has since racked up experience at Flemming's, the Mansion at Judge's Hill, and Fore Lakeway. Feeling there was a lack of healthier options in the restaurant world, Chef Snow opened Greenhouse as a place the entire family could feel comfortable eating at.

The static menu features mostly sandwiches but the chef's weekly menu is created using the ingredients purchased that week. All burgers and sandwiches are made with anti-biotic/hormone free beef and all-natural chicken. During our visit we tried the Yardbird sandwich from the regular menu and the Pumpkin and Pork Risotto off that week's chef specials menu.

If you're curious about where the week's ingredients came from, there's a helpful map listing suppliers. The chalkboard behind the counter will tell you what the week's specials are, but you can also check out the restaurant's Facebook page before you head over.

Despite being located in a shopping center, the interior of the restaurant is rustic and trendy with glass jar lights and reclaimed wood accents throughout. The chairs are even upholstered with burlap bags, all setting the right tone for a farm to table eatery.
