Exploring Kyle’s Hidden Gems: Must-Visit Spots Near Crosswinds

Keeping it local and exploring the places within your city, though, can make you appreciate where you live that much more. Here are a few gems right here in Kyle worth checking out. 


Texas Pie Company 


If you’ve spent any amount of time in Kyle, then you know it’s the pie capital of Texas. For your money, you won’t find a better slice of pie in town than what Texas Pie Company is serving at 202 W Center Street. 


The bakery offers way too many pies to rattle off every flavor, but whether you prefer fruity pies like peach, apple, or blueberry, or you’re more of a chocolate fudge or coconut kinda person, Texas Pie company has it! We’d be remiss not to mention its other baked goods like cookies and brownies, as well as the savory casseroles. Yum, yum, and yum. 


Get Your Caffeine Fix


If you prefer to start your weekend with a strong cup of coffee, then you’ll want to swing by the Summer Moon coffee shop. The cafe, located at 4217 Benner Road, uses a wood-fired roasting process for its beans that gives the coffee a warm finish that gets better with every sip. 


Kyle’s Daily Grind is another cafe that’s popular with local residents. Located at 607 West Center Street, the coffee shop offers protein shakes, smoothies, muffins, kolaches, cinnamon rolls, and, of course, delicious coffee. 


Visit the Kyle Public Library


Whether you need to borrow a Chromebook, kill some time with the kiddos on a rainy Saturday, or want to plant a vegetable garden, the Kyle Public Library at 550 Scott Street can help. This place truly is a hub of resources for city residents. 


Yes, it has books to check out, but that is only scratching the surface. There are programs like storytime for the littles, anime meetups for teens, yoga classes for adults, and a whole host of other events almost every day of the week. 


Shop Local


In an age where nearly everything seems to be available on Amazon, a local store like Lionheart Hobby is even more special. The shop located at 5500 FM2770 not only offers an amazing selection of models and tabletop games but is committed to providing top-notch customer service from experienced staff who love models and games just as much as their customers. 


Whether you’re 50 and have been building model airplanes your entire life or are completely new to the world of models, this is a shop for anyone who is a kid at heart. 


Good Eats


Nothing ends a day exploring Kyle quite like noshing down on some tasty grub. Ilario’s at 5401 FM 1626 has been serving up made-from-scratch Italian since 2011 and offers a range of classic dishes like toasted cheese ravioli, chicken florentine, and shrimp scampi over pasta. The restaurant also makes a mean pizza that can be customized to your liking. 


If you’re more in the mood for a greasy burger, then head on over to Big Rob’s Burgers at 130 Kirkham Circle. The burgers here are anything but tiny (triple patties, anyone?), and with sides like fries and tots and desserts like funnel cakes and fried Oreos, you’re guaranteed not to leave hungry. 

With so much to explore, it’s no surprise people love living in Kyle. If you’d like to find your dream home here, reach out to the team at the master-planned Crosswinds community.
