Royal Blue Grocery
This Austin import replaces the Tom Thumb in Highland Park Village. It combines elements of gourmet shop, convenience store, regular grocery, and cafe. There are five locations in Austin, but the Dallas store represents a slight departure, at a much bigger 6,500 square feet. The cafe space is much bigger than its Austin counterparts, with 70 seats inside and out, and the wine department is four times the size of anything in Austin. Maybe because we like to drink more wine?
