Deep in the Heart of Texas: Round Top, Day Two
Santas and elves...but not at $29 apiece.
Royer's Round Top Cafe is THE famous place to eat in Round Top; they're known for their pie and comfort food. This was an outpost at Zapp Hall in Warrenton. I had a yummy pasta salad--I mean, really yummy, full of my fave, cilantro that came with potato salad and beans (carbs much?); B. had some sort of pork sandwich, I think. And that is a single serving of buttermilk pie. Which was thoroughly underwhelming, alas. I'm not dissing Royer's--the food was quite delish, and I think the experience at the real cafe is probably super fun--and maybe it was an off day for pie? I'm a tough pie critic since my Grandma Betty and my mom were/are outstanding bakers of pies. (The red tint is due to the red tent--a red tent tint, ha!--under which we were sitting.)
