Best Saviors of Local Dining Landmarks

Bob Cole & Partners

When we were researching a story on Austin’s landmark restaurants recently, an interesting coincidence emerged. Three of the 19 restaurants featured in the story had been reborn (Hill’s Cafe), revitalized (the Tavern), or successfully relocated (the Frisco Shop) because of the intervention of local radio personality Bob Cole and his fellow investment partners. Cole and his friends recognize a good opportunity, appreciate Austin’s history, and are doing their part to preserve it.

The Tavern, 922 W. 12th, 320-8377; Hill's Cafe, 4700 S. Congress, 851-9300; the Frisco Shop, 6801 Burnet Rd., 459-6279
