JOHN ANDERSON

East Coast oysters are plump and mild, and the tuna ceviche is bright from kabosu and ginger. A burrata panzanella is unorthodox but shows range. The Grilled Little Gem deconstructs Caesar salad, but is nowhere near as boring as that implies. Tangy Alabama fried green tomatoes shine in a greaseless crab cake "sammy."

Cenote Cesar Chavez

Neighborhood coffeehouse with a welcoming patio also serves sandwiches, tacos, wine, and beer.

1010 E. Cesar Chavez, 512/524-1311

Cisco's

In the breakfast business for more than 50 years, Cisco's still serves migas, huevos rancheros, and hot biscuits with a healthy dose of Austin political history.

1511 E. Sixth, 512/478-2420

Counter Cafe

The compact list of eclectic diner fare is based on quality ingredients, many from purveyors known for all-natural and organic products. This is one of the few places in town to go for breakfast and lunch all day, every day, including the crab cakes, bone-in pork chop, and grilled quail with your eggs.
