When she’s not nabbing Oscars or gracing the silver screen, “America’s Sweetheart” Sandra Bullock is busy raising her son Louis in Austin, Texas, and backing two successful restaurants: Walton’s Fancy and Staple and Bess’ Bistro.
A local favorite, Walton’s is three things in one: florist, coffee shop and sandwich deli. (And it does all three very well.) According to Austin locals, the Monte Cristo sandwich is a must-have and the strawberry Pop-Tart? Forget about it. Meanwhile, Bullock’s other restaurant, Bess’ Bistro, sits right across the street in Austin’s historic Stratford Arms building. If you happen upon it, you should probably try the Creole Shrimp, or the so-big-you-can-hardly-eat-it Bess Burger. (Yum.)
