Two Saints Baking Co. and Cafe – Unless you find yourself in the Shops at the Galleria in Bee Cave on a daily basis, you may not have noticed the humble Two Saints Baking Co. and Cafe. This would be a great loss, because Two Saints is one of the tastiest cafes in the area. Owners Heather and Dave run the business, which focuses on baking breakfast pastries, cakes, pies, hot breakfast sandwiches, savory soups and toasted paninis. The dining room is spacious and perfect for an afternoon meet up with a friend or to have a working lunch if you need table space to bring your laptop.
