Create an itinerary including Newman’s Castle
Mike Newman is the creative force behind both the castle and the bakery bearing his name.

Since exploring Europe in his early 20’s, he had the dream to build his own castle, and has made that a reality in the Bellville countryside. Exhibiting the same hard work and determination that built his successful bakery of nearly three decades, Mike broke ground on his mighty fortress in 1998.

“In the beginning…people thought I was crazy,” Mike revealed in an interview with Texas Live Magazine. Ten years later, Mike can truly say that he is king of his own castle. “It makes people happy. They leave with restored faith that they can do anything.”

  • This mom and pop restaurant has great food! They make their own bread that they serve on the combo sandwiches. This place is a very comfortable place to dine with a great view of downtown Bellville. The wait staff was very attentive for tea refills as well. I highly recommend this place for your next meal if you're in Bellville.
  • Very friendly service , freshly made French fries , we enjoyed our sandwiches ( all veggie and grilled cheese) with some cookies , nice place to stop by and enjoy a breakfast or lunch !!
  • First of all the customer service is very nice. These guys are big on cookies and donuts. Grab a sandwich while you’re there on their fresh made bread. Very comfortable settings.
  • Just passing by and stopped for breakfast. We enjoyed our meals. We'll be coming back for lunch next time.
  • The bakery is very outdated and lets say a little dirty. We only went there to get the tickets for the Castle. We did try the cookies. They were very hard and disappointing. Looks like locals tend to eat breakfast here it was quit busy.
