Round Rock, TX 78664
Sunday, our book club met at Friar Tuck’s Pantry, an English tea house. I was yelping around looking for a place for us to meet that was either in North Austin or in Round Rock. I stumbled on Friar Tuck’s Pantry and I love the name of this place so much that I couldn’t resist making a reservation. Yes, they take reservations! It’s hard to find a coffee/tea place or small cafe that can seat a group of 8-10 comfortably and not only does Friar Tuck’s have the space and seating to do this but they ALSO take reservations? It’s a book club’s dream meeting spot!
If I could choose just one word to describe Friar Tuck’s Pantry, I’d use charming. If given 2 words, I’d add on delightful. Friar Tuck’s Pantry stays true to its English homage. The owner, (if memory serves, I think her name is Debra) is from England and speaks with a sweet English accent. She won me over when she tried to push Jamie into trying more interesting pastries and stray from her order of a bagel with cream cheese. Her pastries are very English. Tarts, scones, etc. I’ve come to accept that English pastries are dry but also that’s why you eat it with warm cups of tea!
Unfortunately, no one could sample their lunch menu as they stop serving lunch at 3pm and we scheduled to meet at 3:30. Instead we ordered samples of their pastries.
