Bakeries in Hill Country

Select Local Merchants

The day of a big celebration is always pretty hectic. Houses need to be cleaned, party clothes need to be ironed, and lots of food needs to be cooked and artfully displayed. But it's in situations like this that the bakers at Cupcake Catering shine by taking care of a party's central dish: the dessert. They take orders in the days preceding parties, then bring the beautifully frosted treats straight to your door when you need them. They make cupcakes in a range of flavors to cater to a range of cravings and desired level of decadence.

Williams' Confectionery Crafts prepares its delicious eats and bakes its treats in gloriously old-fangled style. Start your day of work or conclude your night of vampire hunting with breakfast (served all day) and gobble up biscuits and gravy ($2.99); gorge on pancakes ($3.99); or introduce your bashful face to a stomach-warming meal of bacon, eggs, grits, and toast ($3.99). At the sound of the lunch cymbals, sandwich fans can retire to the confectionery for a roast-beef bread tower stacked with red onions, bell peppers, provolone, and mayonnaise ($5.29). Or just snack on a trio of wings or tenders served with fries ($4.99) as you wait for the sky to stop raining men. The restaurant also features meal specials ($6.99) between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tuesdays treat you to chicken and dumplings with mixed veggies, candied yams, and a roll. Thursday visitors, meanwhile, can burrow into a hefty platter of smothered pork chops paired with gravy-drenched rice, greens, pineapple casserole, and cornbread. A finishing flourish of fresh-baked pies, cookies, and cakes—as well as decadent alternatives such as floats, banana splits, and specialty sundaes—will defuse sweet teeth before their timer counts down to zero. Meal seekers can visit Williams’ Confectionery Crafts’ snack shop between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Monday through Friday, and from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Both a quick pit-stop for grabbing a coffee and homemade pastry and a respite for sitting down for lunch and lingering a while, Hearthstone Express functions as a coffee shop and bistro. The cooks usher in the day with breakfast, scrambling eggs and tucking them into buttery croissants with spinach-artichoke spread and crispy bacon. Meanwhile, the bakers whip up pastries such as danishes, scones, and bagels to complement cups of coffee. For lunch, the cooks move on to gourmet sandwiches and paninis; best-sellers include Alicia's club?turkey, avocado spread, mozzarella, and honey dijon on a croissant?and the turkey artichoke panini, topped with spinach-artichoke spread. But the staff is open to customers' own creations as well, making Build Your Own sandwiches. Diners can pick their meat, bread, cheese, veggies, and dressings, and name it anything they want, such as Janet.

Schugga Bakery tickles tongues with quintessentially Teutonic delights such as apple strudel, raisin-sprinkled schneckennudel, and Danube wave cake, filled with sour cherries and topped with chocolate. Savory options such as schnitzel sandwiches, potato soup, and daily lunch specials offer more substantial lunch options. Specialty cakes come in custom designs, cleverly disguised as beloved animals, favorite cartoons, or slightly different flavors of cake.
