Easy Tiger

American Cafe, Bakery/Coffeehouse, Gastro Pub | $$

709 E. Sixth
Austin, 78701
512/614-4972
“Slow down and stay awhile” is the motto of this upscale diner. While a split-level bakeshop and beer garden may seem an unlikely pairing, the interplay among handcrafted breads, house-cured meats, and a lovingly curated beer menu is surprisingly successful.

If you’re wandering past The Driskill Hotel, don’t overlook this place. The cafe has had a face-lift and acquired a new chef. Be sure to sample the pricey but delicious selection of baked goods.
