Coined by the French, a patisserie is a bakery producing only the best of pastries. It is a term not to be bestowed upon lightly.
Breads, puff pastry, flaky pastry, and strudels - all are up for grabs at Walton's Fancy and Staple. Along with cupcakes, cookies, macarons, and tarts, both sweet and savory, Walton's haas become a great Austin patisserie.
One of my favorites is the Honey Bee Cake, an almond cake layered with caramel buttercream and topped with a chocolate ganache. Added bonus, isn't it adorable? Pictured below left.
The original Walton's florist was introduced to the team behind Bess Bistro and the rest is history - thus became Walton's Fancy and Staple.
Still remaining true to its original purpose, the venue invokes a farmhouse flare filled with flowers and gardening tools alike. It's a lovely ambiance and country-feel escape right in the heart of the city.
