Best Place For Runners To Carbo Load

Schlotszky's/Bread Alone

The combination of Schlotszky's sourdough sandwiches and Bread Alone's fresh pastries make this the best stop for runners on Town Lake's hike-and-bike trail. They can make a quick detour south at the Lamar Street bridge to load up on plenty of carbs, and still make it back to the trail to finish their run before sundown. Whether it's the fresh sourdough bread, the bakery's huge peanut butter cookies, or a little slice of heaven that is their key lime pie, this place has just the pick-me-up serious runners need. Better yet, the upstairs deck has a great view of the trail, where runners can look out at their fellow exercise buffs and chuckle as they excuse themselves for reasons of cramping.
