We try not to borrow stuff from our bigger neighbor Houston. Austin is fine without a professional sports team! Widely available public transportation? Clearly don’t need that. But when it comes to Tiny Boxwoods, we immediately forget that principle, in large part because they seem to pump fresh bakery smells out of their building like Subway does with their weird fake bread scent. Tiny Boxwoods serves kind-of-healthy stuff like summer salads, chia seed pudding, avocado toast, and fresh juices, but also their rightfully famous chocolate chip cookies and soon-to-be-famous banana bread. Come for lunch, sit on the patio with your baked goods, and give a silent thank you to Houston.
