Dripping Springs TX Restaurants
Rolling in Thyme and Dough 333 W Highway 290 is a fun, eclectic eatery combined with a plant nursery. Thyme and Dough is my favorite Drippin' restaurant because you can eat healthy there with many vegetables and whole grains as well as Gluten Free and Vegan on the menu. Pictured above are some of the breads they bake, vegan 7 Grain and vegan Sourdough. There are herbal and regular teas; homemade breads; salads, soups, sandwiches and more. The Sunrise Cafe at 330 Mercer Street 512-858-0426 is a small cafe with Mexican and American food which has many different types of hot sauces. I love the Creek Road Cafe at 301 Highway 290 W in Dripping Springs 512-858-9459. Of course there are some fast food franchises like Dairy Queen and McDonald's but those are pretty much the same in any Texas town.
