Maybe it's just me, but I expected some fresh bread. Lots of original handmade Texas items for purchase and antiques to view but that's about it.

The three little old ladies running this place were very welcoming, but now that the bakery has been closed down there is little to see here.
Plenty of crafts; well made by senior citizens but really not very interesting.

Found this place several years ago. It offers top quality handcrafted items made by area senior citizens, and a terrfic lunch: soup and sandwich for about $4.25. It's right downtown, and easy to get to. Highly recommended.

The Old Bakery & Emporium in Austin, TX is a really neat
place to shop for something unusual, for yourself or a gift.
All the crafts are made by Austin's Senior citizens and
they also volunteer their time, to keep the place
going. My husband and I both enjoyed our visit there.

By chance, I stopped in the Old Bakery and Emporium on Congress Ave. and found a fantistic place to shop and dine. ( Great lunch specials) As I walked in the door, I was greeted by a volunteer and was given a history of the building as well as a review of all the merchandise hand crafted by Senior citizens. A must stop while in Austin, Texas
