Tomball: Jane and John Dough Bakery

Located in Old Town Tomball, Jane and John Dough Bakery is the perfect stop for those who crave coffee as well as fresh-baked goods and a mouth-watering selection of breakfast foods. The bakery uses beans from Portland-based Stumptown Coffee Roasters and offers treats such as their peaches-and-cream coffee cake and the duffin: a doughnut a disguised as muffin coated with cinnamon. The laid-back atmosphere and the comfortable vibes make it a coffee house that attracts regulars and coffee-crawlers alike.
