New Collins Street Bakery

Growing up in Navarro County, Texas, just 10 miles from Corsicana where the Collins Street Bakery has been made famous by their fruit cakes, I was delighted to see that there is now a Collins Street Bakery in Waco!

The exterior of the business is very attractive.100_1216

Don makes his way to the door as I snap pictures.  (Thunder clouds seem to be gathering.)100_1217


There is even a deli counter inside offering sandwiches, soups, salads and all kinds of desserts.  We enjoyed their chicken salad sandwich; mine on pecan bread and Don’s on whole wheat.100_1219

The interior of Collins Street Bakery is just attractive as the exterior.100_1220


Did you notice the wall light sconces?100_1222

What a clever use of rolling pins and very appropriate for a bakery.100_1224

Back at the Q, we watched the rain all around us and then it finally made it’s way to us.100_1225


This new Hillcrest Hospital is about a mile from the Q, as the crow flies.  However, the road is about six miles.100_1227


After the rain flash flood, the creek behind us was roaring over the private road.100_1229

I sure enjoyed capturing a few artsy photographs last this afternoon.100_1230
