The town of San Saba is a place for big plans and high hopes. Nicknamed the “Pecan Capital of the World”, a weekend getaway in this Texas Hill Country town includes fine architecture, wine, steak (with all the great Texas sides), homemade cinnamon rolls, and fine boutique shopping. The town has a lot to offer, both classic and modern, and a glorious setting in which to explore it – along the San Saba River.

Recently renovated, the Dofflemyer Hotel in downtown San Saba sits directly across from a weathered mural on R.B. Bagley & Sons Pecan Company, saying “Buy Pecans Here.” It signifies the town’s history, its niche market, and its economic foundation, as well as Texas Hill Country heritage. Constructed in 1913 as a bank, the Dofflemyer Hotel restoration and opening took place in 2015, combining industrial design components with a rustic Hill Country flare. The original bank vaults still remain on the first floor, and the second floor features five rooms and a suite, all individually decorated.

We hope you brought your appetite, because Diggs Restaurant & Club not only features a great dining room, they also feature a mesquite-grilled sirloin steak that’s cooked to perfection. Served with a delicious baked potato, this meal is going to fill the void, and then some! If you’re looking for a great breakfast or just an evening top-off for dessert, Oliver and Co. has some fine coffee and some melt-in-your-mouth cinnamon rolls you’ll think your grandmother made. And Alamo Pecan & Coffee serves up some brittle complete with the pecans that San Saba is famous for.
