(map) Rich Hopkins, a Texas musician who travelled the world and was ready to settle down, launched this cafe about a year ago in a small 1930’s house off the square in Blanco. Part coffeehouse, part lunch and dinner spot, Zocalo is dedicated to serving fresh, local ingredients and “the best water in Blanco.” Above, the Ladies’ Special combo, with creamy, freshly made avocado soup, salad, and a mini grilled-goat-cheese sandwich.

There are several rooms for dining, as well as a porch, a patio, and the bar. That’s a serious coffee maker behind the bar because the place is serious about their coffee. Below, the BLT, served on grilled ciabatta bread with fresh coleslaw.

There are several art-filled dining rooms to choose from, or you can sit on the porch in nice weather. One of the day’s specials, below: ahi tuna tacos with a spicy chipotle mayo.

The porch makes a great spot to drink in some of Zocalo’s amazing iced tea, made with “the best water in Blanco.” We thought this was just hype until we tasted it – it’s some of the best tea we’ve ever had. Down below, you can see where the magic happens. That’s the cafe’s larger-than-life water filtration system. Taste for yourself!
