Yellow Jacket Social Club

American Cafe | $$

1704 E. Fifth
Austin, 78702
512/480-9572
Hours: 11am-2am
The Yellow Jacket Social Club has a comfortable, lived-in feel that aims to attract a neighborhood bar crowd as much as the Urban Outfitted. The furniture is funky and comfortable, and the interior is quiet enough to allow for conversation. Outdoors, it’s a friendly scene, and friendly, well-behaved dogs are welcome.

Arkie's Grill

Blue Dahlia Bistro

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.
