There’s always been this curious little place off to a side-corner of The Domain. I must’ve walked past it hundreds of times; essentially every time I frequent the shopping area. I knew the place sold cake balls – after all, it is called Austin Cake Ball – but I never knew much else about it. I just knew that every time I peered through the window, I decided that the place looked too pricey for me to enjoy without a guilty conscience, particularly after some retail consumerism.
Today, however, in a spur-of-the-moment type of moment, we actually stopped by and took a peek at the menu. Why, they had quite a quality happy hour menu! After a bit of store browsing, we dropped in for a drink, dinner, and dessert – all for just a little over $17 with a 20% tip included. Dare I say, what a way to not break the bank after shopping!
