I grew up in Austin & driving to Lockhart for BBQ was a special event, no frills, real, down-home Texas BBQ. While the Bishop Arts location is a bit more polished than the original, food is GREAT, fun

Gourmet specialty coffee at it's best. Ask the barista about their process, sourcing, roasting, for the daily coffee drinker or the connoisseur. I highly recommend the Van Buren, its an experience.

Grocery store w/ Starbucks inside & Wells Fargo bank too. I'm told the butcher's custom cut meats are the best if you are into grilling (& there's a grill at the guest house!).
