Really great breakfast/lunch. It's tiny and cute and only open until 3 or 4 pm. Try the eggs benedict or the crab cakes. The burger is fresh and sweet and one of the best in the city.

A very cool specialty shop. I highly recommend the Hot Cinnamon Spice tea for making hot toddies. Or chill the tea for summer toddies. They have a wide assortment of teas from across the world.

Drinks & Nightlife
Directly next to the capital, down a flight of stairs. The bar is dark and kind of divey. Sometimes it's empty, sometimes it's humming along. Politicians go there for happy hour when in session.

A true, Texas honky tonk. Go on a weekend night for a live band and two-stepping. Around Christmas the place is decked out in thousands of lights. Just don't order any fancy drinks, trust me.
