My first visit to Lula Jane's was for lunch. Right now they have just one lunch entree available each day (although there are often choices, like today was macaroni and cheese with or without ham). The food was wonderful! If you're looking for tasty and homemade, this is where you need to stop! I was able to resist the bakery items this time, but I do see a tea and pastry return-visit in my very near future.

I always cringe when a friend suggests going to La Fiesta. The food is mediocre, at best. And the service is always, without fail, 100% of the time, horrid. Having to pay what seems to be higher-than-average prices for this lack of taste and service is the worst. There are so many better Tex-Mex choices in town!

You can sincerely taste the care put into the food in this restaurant/cheese shop. The cheese is outstanding, and they are always happy to let you sample. The grilled cheese sandwich is different every time, as you choose your own cheese. The sandwich is great (try the basil bread) and the fold-over is amazing. It's fun to try the new types of cheese. My new favorite, I'd never heard of until walking in: Caerphilly. Be ready to walk out with at least one type of cheese you want to bring home! This will be on the top of our list of places to take out-of-towners when they visit!

Common Grounds
While this place is very popular with Baylor students (and recent grads), I think it might be a little too "young" for anyone over 30 or *gasp* 40. The atmosphere is "Christian hipster," but not really welcoming to older or younger people. (I saw a mother with two small children come in once. Although they were very well behaved, it seemed to make the staff, and most of the clientele, pretty uncomfortable.) So, I guess this is one just for the college and 20-something crowd. The drinks are just average, so it's not a must-stop for anyone outside that demographic.

The buffet seemed to be the best way to go! The food was replenished quickly, and they were happy to take special requests. Everyone there was very friendly. A nice, family night out.

The pizza here is the best in town. Service can be hit or miss. I've had really poor service once or twice, but in recent months, the service seems to have gotten much better. The wait staff has been friendly, and the pizza (unless you order something complicated, like the Texas-shaped crust) doesn't take an unreasonable time to arrive. I'm happy with the improvements!

Just say no to the Pizza Hut on Valley Mills. The one and only time we stopped in for the lunch buffet, we left hungry. The selections on the buffet were sparse, and once we made it back to our table, the dead flies in all the window sills killed our appetites. To top it all off, the waitress had a terrible time figuring out how to make change. Maybe they'll clean up their act one day, but until they do, if you have a craving for Pizza Hut, try the one by the Baylor campus. There's no buffet, but it's much cleaner and the food is hot!

Be sure you have lots of time when you go to D's. They're never really speedy! But the food is worth the wait. I love the falafel sandwich (sans the pickle ... blech!), and always intend to eat only half and take the rest home. It never happens. It's just too good!

The staff at The Grape is always very friendly and accommodating. They seem to always be happy to recommend a new wine. You can't go wrong with their cheese plate! (Sandwiches are ok, too.)
