All the menu is very good for any meal. I like the atmosphere and the service. The waiter was very helpful explaining options or possible variations in some plates.

There is really nothing special about this place. We were quite disappointed. We came for brunch around noon on a Sunday and the place was packed. We loved the variety of the menu (being both vegetarian so this was a treat) and loved the space;...More

Great place to meet a small group. Great menu options, coffee and great service. Just off S 1st but away from the rush of downtown.

Can't understand the favorable reviews for this restaurant. We visited for a late lunch on a weekend and were disappointed. The noise level was annoying. I could barely hear my husband seated across the table, and we had to ask the server to repeat himself...More

I had the tamale breakfast for dinner and it was very good. Sweet potato tamales were excellent. I was with 4 others and we all enjoyed our meals. The atmosphere was homey and eclectic and we had an enjoyable evening.

I found this place based on another trip adviser review and I was not disappointed. I took two friends here for breakfast. Two of us got the potato leek omelette. Delicious! Service was good and food was delivered quickly. The place has that quirky Austin...More
