fork entrance into Old Town Spring,
which is Gentry St., the first store you

dolls: Alexander, Middleton, Adora, Ginny, Molly P, Life

by finding the Shabby Rose, forefront,
which specializes in home decor, soaps

Italian goodies cooking up each day, so
if you want a quick snack in the

Heading over to the rail
road tracks, come early to Old Town Spring to have
some breakfast at the historic Wunsche Brothers
Cafe. Midway is as historic as the remaining
Old Town Spring; for the cafe at one time was a
hotel, the bank is just a couple doors down, which
by legend was robbed by Bonnie and Clyde.
Midway is a good start of a shopping day with over
20 stores in this area of Old Town Spring. The
Gypsy Rose, perfect for the ladies strolls,
especially those planning a wedding.
Chocolate come to mind when I think of Gentry Street
even though the museum and the Doll Hospital are
forefront. Home Sweet Home is my favorite for
coffee in Old Town Spring. A great stop with
over 20 selection of coffee you can buy whole bean
or ground. Stick around and browse all of
their great gifts and collectibles. So many
favorites including The German Haus for their
incredible incense but, when it comes to chocolate,
the Little Dutch Girl is my favorite in all of
Houston. Before taking the Gentry stroll, do
not forget to check out the Creekside Plaza where
you find the wonderful Different Strokes Pet
Boutique and on the weekends, the best barbeque in
town at the Whole Cake and Kaboodle.

chicken fried steak, it is a choice lunch stop in
Old Town Spring.
Courtyard de Belle
