Brit’s Guide to Round Top, Texas

Tucked away in the Texas Hill Country and equidistant from Houston and Austin, Round Top, Texas is the perfect getaway. With a population of 90 (yes, 90 people) this charming town boasts phenomenal food, shopping and culture. A couple of weeks ago, my best friend and I decided to meet in Round Top and do some shopping and I can’t wait to share our recap with you.

When I heard that one of my favorite hat designers was doing a pop-up in Round Top, I thought it would be such a fun time to check out this little town I’ve been hearing so much about. The Sarah Bray Bermuda pop-up was held at the Courtney Barton store in Round Top Village. This adorable shop has beautiful textiles, candles, jewelry and so much more.

In spite of unseasonably cold weather, we had the best time shopping in Round Top. We never made it out to the main Antique fair, but absolutely loved the shops at Round Top Village, Junk Gypsy and the Marburger Farm Antique Show. Whether you’re looking for antiques, clothing or gifts and collectables, you will have no shortage of options in Round Top.

After a long day of shopping and searching for hidden gems, there’s no doubt you’ll need some food and most likely a drink. Luckily, Round Top has excellent restaurants to choose from.

I normally trust Eater for restaurant recommendations, but I actually found the best information for dining in Round Top on the town’s website. For such a small town, there are some serious culinary gems in Round Top and I cannot wait to try them all.

We absolutely loved our lunch at the Garden Co. We had the most delicious tacos, shrimp salad and shared a bottle of Prosecco! This restaurant is adorable, delicious and has a wonderful wine list so we will definitely be back!

Our favorite food from the day though was the pizza at Prost! I had read about it on blogs before our trip and then we ran into my friend and her mom and her mom said that she dreams about the pizza at Prost so we all went for pizza and wine after our day of shopping and it was heavenly!

We ended up making some new friends while we were warming up by the fire. In addition to the pizza and atmosphere, the wine list at Prost is incredible and the service was out of this world. I’ve been told that the pizza is not always available there, just at certain times of the year so check on social media and the Prost website to see when the pizza will be served.

Whether you’re a Texan looking for a quick getaway or if you’re from out of state and want to explore the Texas Hill Country, Round Top has so much to offer. From culinary delights to vintage treasures, I am certain you will have the best time and I can’t wait to go back myself! Thanks for tagging along with me on this little road trip! Cant wait to share my next travel guide with you soon! Any guesses where we’re going?!

XO,

Brit
