Indie Grocery in Dripping Springs?

Did I see something about this in the Statesman at some point this year? I thought it was in an article with P&K and the Blue & White Grocery?

  1. Timpone's, west of RR 12 on 290, under the Big blue roof. It's a great shop, with organic meats and cheeses (including a huge selection of Pure Luck cheeses), beautiful isles of higher-end grocery staples, bulk olive oil and vinegar along with the standard bulk items, and a pretty large selection of health and well being pharmacy items. Plus, there's a juice/smoothie/coffee bar, and a deli in the back with amazing sandwiches, salads, and pizzas. The breads and pizzas are baked reheated in the brick oven, and are exceptional. A slice of pizza (create your own, or choose from a few pre-made) will run $3.50, a sammich $6-8. They encourage customization, and have spreads like hummus, stone ground mustard, and roasted tomato mayo.
    There's a few tables out front, and a new large covered patio (with eco-friendly paving, which I love) out back.
    It's a great place for groceries or lunch. Although I always end up getting a dozen extra things when I hit it for lunch, (like those amazing Uncle Eddie's Vegan cookies) so it runs pretty expensive.

    hi, new here, although i've been lurking for a while. I love talking food, almost as much as I love geeking out about music.
