Ok, so we got our coffee and apple fritter….next it’s was on to see Newman’s Castle!!

To see it though, you’ll need to call Newman’s Bakery at 979-865-9804 to book your tour. The day of the tour, you’ll meet up at Newman’s Bakery around 10:15 am.  Why not go a little early and taste one of Newman’s Bakery donuts, danishes, Quiche, pigs in a blanket, cinnamon roles or choose from whatever grabs you from the display case and if you’re like me – a large coffee! (Remember to mention Houston Photo Journey at the Bakery and you’ll get 2 FREE Pastries with your purchase!)

Chuck Norris even filmed a Russian beer (Hoegaarden) at Newman’s Castle (See at end of post)
