You can find Easy Tiger’s bread all around town, but you should make a point to have a meal here too. They have coffee and pastries upstairs, and after 11am, you can go to the beer garden downstairs. It’s next to Waller Creek, and although that’s not the most beautiful body of water, being on the patio feels a little like being tucked away in a concrete jungle. Come for a few drinks, and order charcuterie and pretzels when you get hungry (they serve food until 2am).
