Downtown Austin Retail > Walton's Fancy & Staple


Back in December I reported on the construction activity at 609 W 6th.  It appears that Walton’s could be open any day now.  The doors were locked so here are some photos from behind the windows.  I dig the bistro furniture and old-fashioned look.

This will be a great addition to West 6th.   Another perspective…

  1. Went there today and was greeted by two very lovely people who work there. Tried the flourless choclate hearts. My 3 year old loved it. The environment is warm and very comfortable. Customer service was great along with the atmosphere and food. I would highly recommend it.

    • It’s a nice place but some small improvements would go a very long way. I’d love to see them sell newspapers. This is the perfect place to hang out with a cup of coffee and read the Times.

  2. Amber and I tried Waltons for the first time yesterday. The rehab and decor is outstanding. The food selection was pretty good: pastries, sandwiches, coffee. The service was pretty rough but I’m optimistic that will improve with time. It’s important that we support businesses other than bars on W 6th, and I will definitely return to Waltons.
