The Steeping Room

Most places in Austin don't require a lunch reservation. But most places aren't the Steeping Room, which specializes in deliciously dainty tea sandwiches (no crusts here!), delicate pastries, and, naturally, a wide selection of specialty teas. Demand is deservedly high for the chance to luncheon in this mid-city oasis. – Melanie Haupt
