Most of the time, Austin wears its Austin T-shirt proudly, but Walton’s has a different kind of Southern appeal. Maybe it’s the glass case full of pastel pastries or the succulents for sale in the back. It’s just so…cute. But it’s not all just “fancy” and “staple” - this is actually a glorified deli, with fresh breads and good deli meats. We typically go for a hot sandwich like the Pastrami, or really anything on a pretzel roll. Head here for a weekday lunch when the cafeteria at your office isn’t going to cut it. Or if you’re hoping for a Sandra Bullock spotting - she owns this place.
