Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of savory Euro-American bistro fare at Rolling In Thyme & Dough, located on West Highway 290 in downtown Dripping Springs.
Rolling In Thyme & Dough dishes out a savory menu of flavorful bistro fare concocted from a sunny spread of fresh ingredients. For breakfast, rouse porcine sleepers by ordering up a pig in a blanket ($3.50), or down the smoky chipotle baguette, with a fiery combination of egg, cheese, turkey bacon, and peppers that allows you to roar cartoon flames in the sun's cackling face ($5.35).
Lackadaisical late eaters can kick off afternoons with a laid-back lunch menu, nurturing flourishing belly flowers with the Happy Gardener sandwich, a tool shed of grilled vegetables topped with homemade mayo, pesto, and mozzarella ($6.50). Fish-inclined diners can send the egg, veggie, and tuna-packed Tuna Springs sandwich, with its homemade mayo, pesto, and provolone, for a vigorous doggy paddle down their throat streams ($6.50). A decadent dessert menu boasts an impressive number of pie and cake flavors that keep shrieking sweet teeth from evolving into wailing enamel banshees.
Rolling In Thyme & Dough greets diners with a quaint stone walkway and cottage-like façade. Late-week doldrums are sent packing with Thursday bistro night, an outdoor patio jubilee featuring hearty dinner fare and floor-stomping live music that encourages tableside jug blowing and the construction of xylophones from barbecue spare ribs.
- Dining here is like starring in a real-life “Fried Green Tomatoes.” This cozy place is a vintage Southern cottage, in the midst of a small nursery selling herbs, vegetables and native plants. You can savor the farm-fresh ingredients inside, then pick up your own after lunch! – Way Out West Austin
- Great pastries and coffee every time. The gardens surrounding the bakery are beautiful--it is a regular weekend stop for us. – Ann B., Yelp, 1/21/11
