Walton's Fancy and Staple

Walton’s Fancy and Staple is one of those unique Austin gems you won’t want to miss.  Owned by Sandra Bullock and “sister” to nearby restaurant Bess Bistro, you’ll love this all-in-one deli, bakery, florist and gift shop in a restored building on 6th street.

Walton’s originally started as a florist in Westlake in the late 60s but moved to the downtown location in 2009.  The space is meant to evoke a classic general store vibe with wood beams, tin ceiling tiles, and decorative antiques.  (Many of the items are actually for sale.)

The establishment’s unique combination of food, gifts and flowers makes you wonder why more places haven’t adopted this strategy.  Really, what could serve as a nicer backdrop for a quiet meal than fresh bouquets of flowers?  The good news is the prices aren’t bad either.

  

Floral arrangements for sale at Walton's

Walton’s is open from 7am to 7pm most days.  Stop by in the morning for a croissant and a gourmet espresso.  At lunch, choose from several sandwiches, salads, a daily soup, and some blue plate specials – we recommend the meat loaf and the Turkey Sweet with bacon, caramelized onion, apple and white cheddar. 

      

Gourmet coffee and espressos available

Before you take in all the décor or the yummy menu, you’ll probably get pretty distracted by the beautiful case of desserts.  Choose from decadent cupcakes, elaborate cakes, or colorful macarons to top off your meal.

        

Decadent desserts, especially for chocolate lovers

If you love Walton’s as much as us, keep in mind you can also book events there.  They have a private room for 30, and you don’t even have to find a florist!  You can also buy some of their signature items right on their website, like gourmet coffees, seasoning, candles, and doggie treats.

            

Host your next private event at Walton's!
