We were staying at the Lakeway Resort and just wanted to leave the property for a few meals. This is a down home restaurant with generous portions and attentive staff.

Always have a good meal here! They have very good breakfasts and lunches; good-sized portions. The bread for sandwiches is fresh and very tasty! They have an excellent Turkey Jalapeno Melt and their salsa is homemade and very good. They also have great mint hibiscus tea. Place is a little small and gets really busy, but great place to go...

A classic neighborhood place that does breakfast and lunch well. Have had many breakfasts here and quality in consistently great. Breakfast tacos are good; the California burrito is the best. Service can be great or spotty, but kids are welcome and taken care of.

I read the reviews, and that's what brought my family and I here. We loved our food.. It was delicious! The portions were great and so were the prices. We looove the salsa so much, we bought some to go. The service wasn't the best. If the service was better, this place would be excellent!

We wanted to get out of the resort for breakfast and read about Cafe Lago. The food was good, but the service was far less impressive.

We have been eating at cafe lago for over 20 years and the food has remained excellent. This is a neighborhood family restaurant that is always crowded at breakfast especially on weekends. Do not be concerned. The wait goes quickly and well worth the wait. The breakfast menu is limited on weekdays and extensive on weekends. No matter what you... More

Do not be discouraged if Cafe Lago seems full. The wait was quite short. This is such a happy place with mixed matched charm and mouthwatering breakfasts and lunches. Do try the specials which do run out. The service is friendly and quick. It is a bit hidden from Lakeway Drive down the hill and behind the parking lot. Great... More

This restaurant is located right in the heart of Lakeway. For what it strives to be it is perfect. Cafe Lago is packed for breakfast and lunch. The owners and staff are very friendly and their loyal following attests to that. The food is tasty, and the pastries are very good. Cafe Lago is a good place to go after... More
