Funky Art Cafe
It’s a 45-minute drive from College Station to Brenham, but the promise of a New Mexican pumpkin burger at the Funky Art Cafe trumps the cost of gas. Housed in the century-old Schuerenberg Blacksmith Building on the downtown square, the cafe and its companion shop and coffee bar are operated by a fourth-generation member of the Schuerenberg family. The menu is chock-full of unique flavor combinations; witness the peanut butter, red onion, and apple jelly sandwich. We couldn’t resist the “grown-up grilled cheese,” a delectable merger of cheddar, cream, and blue cheeses with dried cranberries and cayenne.
