Waterwheel Road Grocery

Biscuits are made fresh Monday through Friday mornings, but Saturday is the day to bring a serious appetite to this country-road grocery store. That is when the menu includes barbecued ribs, chicken, and chopped pork cooked in the big iron pit just across the road, along with hot-from-the-oven mac ‘n’ cheese, barbecue beans, and hash on rice. For dessert: peach cobbler, please!

Tiny Diner

Local, sustainable, organic, natural, low-impact biointensive urban farming: a gamut of culinary virtues sets the beat at this green diner, where a colony of bees lives on the roof and rainwater is caught and put to good use. Sumptuous eggs Benedict, lofty hamburgers, and vivid house-made soda pop are evidence that the strategy can succeed.

Hans’ Bakery

For German-American pastries and all-American pastries, as well as plate-size Texas donuts, Hans’ is a happy place. The house specialty is a Beehive — a tender cake filled with honey-sweetened Bavarian cream and topped with powdered sugar and slivered almonds. While much business is take-out, the dining room is bright and spacious, well-suited for coffee-klatch conversation.
