Round Top Texas – Everything You Need To Know

I’ve lived in Dallas for over 25 years, but never been to Round Top, Texas! I was so excited to get invited to attend a mastermind retreat with some fabulous business women!  Most of us were in the home decor, crafts and party niches. Then there was me with my food blog.

Hosted by the talented Kim from Salvaged Living, this trip really blew my mind. I don’t know if it was getting to know and learn from other successful entrepreneurs (my love language), or the charming small Texas town? Getting to shop, eat and speak with women who own their own businesses definitely filled my cup with joy!

After getting back home to Dallas and letting the inspiration soak in, I’ve decided to start hosting free cooking classes on my Facebook page so we can get to know each other on a more personal level.

I highly recommend staying at the Heritage Sunday House in Burton, Texas. It’s about a 10-15 minute drive to Round Top and is one of the most charming modern farmhouse homes I’ve ever seen! With beautiful clawfoot tubs and a gorgeous pet peacock roaming the grounds, you’ll feel like you’ve gone back in time to another place.

We had the most incredible dinner at Bader Ranch. If you want a once in a lifetime experience, make reservations now at the Liberty Kitchen – Bader Brasserie. It’s a pop-up restaurant only open twice a year during the antique market days. Enjoy coastal inspired French fare served by Chef Lance Fegen. I promise, you’ll be in pure heaven!

I took a whole Texas Trash pie home with me and have been eating it ever since. Best of all, if you can’t make it to Round Top, you can have the pie shipped directly to your home. YAY!

Shopping in Round Top can be overwhelming, so you need a starting place for sure! We started at The Bull Market and I could have stayed there for hours! It’s where I found these incredible cutting boards for less than $30 each. They’ll be perfect for my farmhouse kitchen!
