Walton's Fancy & Staple


Inside this popular spot on West Sixth Street, smallish tables for dining share space with artfully arranged displays showcasing nibbles, gifts, flowers, and bric-a-brac. Walton’s Fancy & Staple is a fresh take on two Austin institutions—Fischer Brothers Grocery and Walton’s Florist and Nursery—and the perfect mélange of deli, bakery, flower shop, and grocery. That nostalgic general store ambience is tempered by modern state-of-the-art appliances and a vibe that feels at once comfortable yet elegant. Glossy cases house desserts from honey bee cakes to chocolate chunk cookies, and an oversized chalkboard features the expansive menu, which ranges from cold sandwiches and salads to panini and blue plate specials. Breakfast offerings, specialty breads, and pastries are available daily along with a smattering of goodies, such as Walton’s own coffee blends, to take home. At Walton’s, attention to detail in everything from planning an event and arranging a bridal bouquet to catering a party and baking a specialty cake is tantamount to service—and it shows.
