Pick up a little pick-me-up at Mojo Coffee on your way into town. With a wide assortment of lattes, teas, smoothies, and pastries you’ll find something delicious to start your trip off right. If you have more of a sweet tooth we highly suggest Choccolatte’s Fine Chocolates and Toffee. Not only do they have handmade chocolates, coffee, but they’re especially knowns for their Pecan English Toffee. It’s a must try!
For a small town Marble Falls has a variety of different cuisines. If you’re looking for good Mexico food try Super Taco. Try the Pechuga Ranchera, you won’t regret it. Check out Ginger and Spice if you’re a fan of Thai food and sushi. You can’t go wrong with any of their menus, it’s all good. Almost everyone loves Italian and Marble Falls definitely delivers. Bella Sera has all the Italian classics and more. Make sure you save room for their Amaretto Cheesecake! Last but surely not least is Blue Bonnet Cafe. It’s a town staple that’s perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – but don’t forget the pie!
One of the best parts about small towns, in our opinion, is the shopping! From boutiques to antiques there’s always some treasures to discover.
