Retail Roundup: Copperfield Area Shopping, Dining and Entertainment

Copperfield homeowners have plenty of choices nearby for convenient shopping and dining. For daily shopping needs, there is a Whole Foods Market in the Gateway shopping center, as well as a super-sized HEB about five minutes away.

For more extensive shopping, Copperfield is only about 15 minutes away from The Arboretum, a beautiful upscale shopping district set in a relaxing and serene park-like setting complete with fountains, walking trails, and picnic areas. The Arboretum offers over 40 upscale shops, such as Barnes & Noble, Saks Fifth Avenue, GAP, and many more. Shoppers can experience relaxed shopping followed by a picnic on the grass, or they can enjoy one of many popular restaurants such as The Cheesecake Factory or Five Guys Burgers and Fries.

Just a few minutes closer than the Arboretum, The Domain is a luxurious 1,300,000-square-foot shopping district with over 100 mainstream retailers like Macy’s and Neiman Marcus and restaurants like Maggiano’s Little Italy, NoRTH and more.

Gateway Shopping Center, Round Rock Premium Outlet Mall, and Swedish furniture superstore IKEA are all within about 15 minutes of Copperfield. Gateway and the Round Rock Premium Outlet Mall together host about 155 quality retailers and restaurants.

Fall-off-the-Bone Ribs and Chicken-Fried Steak

Many dining delights are also close to Copperfield. For a raucous game night or a casual gathering with friends, Bone Daddy’s is the place to be. A sports bar and barbeque joint, Bone Daddy’s is famous for its drink specials, generous portions, and a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. The fall-off-the-bone ribs are always perfect.

And just a few minutes away is Ross’ Old Austin Café. A cozy little establishment, Ross’ offers a small salad bar and a limited menu of homemade classics, including the legendary chicken fried steak. On weekends the café is vibrant with live music, and its warm atmosphere is a popular choice for a family outing.

Spring Rolls, Traditional Broth and Ginger-Soy Dumplings

Locals with a taste for phô swear by Phô King’s deeply flavored, traditional broth and fresh, tasty additions like flank steak and cilantro. Frequent diners also recommend the spring rolls. The atmosphere is unassuming and plain, but the service is reliable and the food delicious.

Another local foodie favorite, Golden Wok serves a pan-Asian menu that is distinctly lighter, tastier, and more addictive than other popular pan-Asian restaurants. With two locations in San Antonio and only one location in Austin, Copperfield residents are lucky to be so close by. The dumplings contain big pieces of real chicken, and the ginger-soy sauce is tangy and delicious. The amazingly light tempura dishes they serve attract diners from all over Austin for its delicious food.
