5706 Manor, Ste. F + 512/785-8416
This bustling restaurant serves up Tex-Mex breakfasts and huge $7 lunch specials. The incredible homemade El Paso-style corn tortillas are one of Angie's many claims to fame.
1307 E. Seventh + 512/476-5413
This cafe has been around since 1948, maintaining the same homestyle menu and hospitable spirit. Thursday's turkey-and-dressing special is highly recommended.
4827 E. Cesar Chavez + 512/385-2986
1210 Rosewood + 512/771-5886
In addition to a full complement of coffee and tea beverages, Bennu offers pastries and prepared foods from local companies 24 hours a day.
2001 E. MLK + 512/478-4700
Visit this casual, cool spot for café au lait, a cheese plate and wine, or a luscious open-faced tartine. Tasty and beautifully presented sandwiches, salads, soups, coffees, desserts, and breakfasts round out the menu.
1115 E. 11th + 512/542-9542
3414 Lyons + 512/926-4650
This trailer serves excellent Louisiana-style fare.
4209 Airport + 512/586-4425
There is a good reason why Argentina-born chef Reina Morris is well-regarded for her exemplary baked goods. Her empanadas are a bite of heaven with wonderful savory treasures encased in delicate, flaky crusts. Both the texture and flavor of the Lomito Beef sandwich is as good as it gets, with perfectly cooked tenderloin slathered with the house signature chimichurri sauce on a soft baguette. Meanwhile, the desserts for which regulars save room will be glowing in the pastry case in all of their glory, so before you get those alfajores for later, consider Quattro Leches cake, or Pionono roulade with fresh strawberries.
1201 E. Sixth + 512/382-1189
This tiny, elegant Neapolitan-style pizzeria is always packed, but worth the wait. On any given night, there are about half a dozen pizzas on the menu, subject to seasonality and availability of ingredients; the mushroom pie is a special treat. Read our review.
1519 E. Cesar Chavez + 512/524-2523
Has many loyal fans who stop in for excellent fare. The pork tenderloin is amazing, and so is the beef, but you have to try the daily special, too. Read our review.

Just half a mile east of I-35, you'll find authentic Colombian flavors in freshly prepared beef, chicken, and tilapia dishes.

This fusion of Middle Eastern and barbecue features dishes such as Boy Dakar lamb burger, and yassa chicken quesadilla.
1102 E. Cesar Chavez + 512/487-7222
Tacos, sandwiches, highly regarded burgers, a full complement of draft beers, and a broad selection of juices and locally made kombucha complement the neighborhood staples of coffee and live music. Read our review.
