Tucked away in a small city, about a hour’s drive from Downtown Houston, in Bellville, Texas you’ll find two hidden gems…we’ll talk about  Newman’s Bakery first : ) .  

Bellville is a small city of around 4,100 residents and is the county seat for Austin County, Texas.  (See below for special offer for Houston Photo Journey readers!)

All sorts of handcrafted items are for sale here in front of the counter and all proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. (Nice to see Mr. Newman supporting the American Cancer Society!) (Cute stuff too by the way).

Ms. Ana M. Hernandez had a smile to go along with a nice, strong cup of coffee and Apple Fritter for me – yum!! Next time I’m going to try the Gingerbread men or maybe a King’s Crown! (The yummy goodness in the photo was for another customer).  Good thing I took a photo of it as I happy scarfed down my apple fritter without remembering to snap a photo! Urr! I know calm down, put the Fritter down Elizabeth! 🙂

Did I mention a working trebuchet too?!…Stay tuned as you won’t want to miss out!!
