I will be visiting Austin, TX this weekend and was wondering if anyone knew of a good bakery that I can visit in the area?
Austin's big on cupcakes, so are plenty of places for cuppies!
Here's the citysearch.com for "Best Cupcakes in Austin":
I've only been to Delish and they were awesome!
You interested in something particular? I have yet to go on the hunt for french macarons in town...
Thank you very much! Not looking for anything in particular....just want to visit a good bakery! Looking forward to trying out the cupcakes!
Austin has a place called All in one Bake shop it is a store and a bakery, however i dont know if they are a order only bakery but the store is cool
My MIL lives in Austin and this is what she suggested.
1. Sweetish Hill Bakery & Cafe, 1120 W. 6th Street 472-1347
2. Taste No Evil Muffins, next to Maria's Tacos on S. Lamar (about a block from me,but Maria's is VERY famous!! - look for the ship's prow head of Maria)
3. Walton's Fancy & Staple 609 W. 6th 542-3380 (this is one of Sandra Bullock's shops - v-e-r-y nice)
awatterson, thanks! i looked up Taste No Evil Muffins and her blog says she had to shut down shucks, i never had a chance!
Oh man. I am sorry. Let us know where you end up going. Take some pictures of the stuff! If we can't eat the goodies at least maybe we can see them!
My MIL came up with another bakery.
209 W. 3rd
(price sample: 1 doz. cupcakes $16.50)
I haven't been on here in a while. Too busy trying to make it through wedding season I guess. I am actually the head cake decorator at Sweetish Hill Bakery. If you stop by, ask for me. I can give you a tour of the back of the house too. We still make everything from scratch daily. It's an awesome bakery!
Well Saturday I ended up at Delish and it was wonderful!! Had the special of the day "chocolate chip cookie dough"! My girlfriends had strawberry and carrot....both said they were fantastic! Sunday headed to Walton's Fancy and Staple but it was closed. Before heading out of town Monday we went back to Delish and I had chocolate peanut-butter and a Mexican Vanilla to go. Both were "delish"!!
I am glad that you got to go there. Those sound yummy. I bet it was hot as heck! Was it a chocolate cupcake that was filled with a peanut butter filling?
I was a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter buttercream. It was really good!
