Clare, and anyone else who happens to be in Austin, please go to this amazing grocery store in Hyde Park. 4300 block of Avenue B. It's one of my favorite places in Austin. Isn't it deliciously Mayberry-ish? The service is pretty personal, too - The owner came from behind the wooden counter and hugged me one time when I was a sad shopper. I bought a book there, a history of the Hyde Park area, written by a brother and sister (are you listening, Michael?), containing all these cool, everyday stories about the families that lived there during the 50's and earlier. The deli in the back of the store makes great sandwiches.
