Stop for a Bite
No trip to Historic Tomball is complete without sampling the sumptuous Bread Pudding at the Whistle Stop Tea Room and Café. Made from croissants and drizzled warm Buttery Rum Sauce it’s a treat no one should miss. The café also offers an array of sandwiches, salads and beverages. There’s even a gift shop.
Chocolate and barbecue in one place? Yes, please. Considered one of the best restaurants in Houston, this is the place to go if you like your pulled pork with a side of salted caramel truffles.
Is there anything better than sipping a holiday cocktail by the firepit? We don’t think so and neither does Bonfire Grill. In addition to a tantalizing dinner menu, the restaurant features top shelf whiskies, bourbons and mixed drinks to enjoy on the patio. Need a gift? They’ve got growlers, bitters, Bonfire Spice, infused spirits and gift cards.
This adorable dining spot offers up delectable Siberian Blinis (similar to French crepes) in a range of sweet and savory flavors. Even better, they have gluten free, keto and vegetarian menu items. Don’t forget to browse their display of handknitted and crocheted items.
