Today, I went out early and got kolaches from Lone Star Kolache for breakfast. They weren't like I expected, more bread-like but pretty tasty. We also tried some cake donuts from Shipley Do-nuts. Have to figure out who has the best donuts in town for Science!
Before lunch, Mom and I drove through downtown Pflugerville and continued on to downtown Round Rock. Round Rock's historic downtown district with limestone buildings from the late 1800's was pretty with cute stores and quite a few places to eat.
We parked near the Palm House museum which was a small home built in 1873 out of cypress and pine hauled from Austin to build with. And 8 children were raised there. It was a two room home so I bet everyone was in everyone's business. We also checked out some stores and peered in windows of places that are closed on Mondays.
I loved these flowers we found along the sidewalk. They smelled so so good!
We picked Main Street Grill for lunch. It used to be a bank, two different times in the past, and you can eat inside the former vault! We ate out in the regular dining room and had quite tasty salads.
And we had to share a dessert - the Express Curveball. It was so so so tasty and different!
Description from the menu is "Vanilla ice cream rolled in candied pecans, sandwiched in flaky puff pastry, set in hot fudge and topped with chocolate sauce duet." MMMMMMM.
Josh worked at home today because our new fridge was delivered this morning! Hurrah cold stuff! Hurrah frozen things! Mom and I stopped home and brought Josh lunch. Then we scooted back out to drive around Austin and go to the Container Store and Williams Sonoma.
Look I bought all this Le Creuset! Okay....maybe I didn't .... hehehehe.
I'll make a separate post about dinner....
