Before you have the espresso of your dreams, treat yourself from this expansive menu.
Offers a wide variety of thin-crust pizzas along with lasagna, calzones, sandwiches, and even muffalettas.
This local upstart takes aim at the big delivery chains by offering pizzas – with gourmet ingredients and good crust – for practically a steal.
Be sated by one of the biryanis or the aloo paratha, whole-wheat bread stuffed with potatoes and peas.
This outpost of the popular Eastside spot serves the same great pastries, soups, and entrées that you love. Save room for dessert – the cakes are moist perfection.
The most elegant food at the mall, with a menu strong on ladies-who-lunch fare. Salads and sandwiches are exceptional, but more substantial offerings are there for the asking.
The best meal to have here is Sunday brunch. The steak and eggs are just that, a decent-sized rib eye and a couple of eggs, all cooked precisely to order. All seats are alfresco.
This quiet neighborhood restaurant has been around for quite some time and provides good, fresh, standard Chinese fare at reasonable prices.
Locally owned and family-operated, this place has a number of gluten-free options, and serves local whenever possible. The service is responsive and attentive. Try the chipotle BBQ baby back ribs with apple bacon slaw.
Best known for chicken and ribs, this place also serves up sides such as macaroni and cheese, fried okra, and onion rings.
The wine list offers 50 wines by the glass or 250 wines by the bottle, either for on-premises drinking or to take home. Make your selections, order a small plate, and you'll have a very nice, small meal.
The menu boasts appealing items clearly influenced by Central Mexico, the specialty cocktail selections include signature margaritas (including one made with tepache, a fermented pineapple drink that's popular in Jalisco), and the sauces here were all extraordinary, but the precooked meats and chaotic service disappointed.
We loved the pizza with sun-dried tomatoes and melting morsels of Texas chèvre. The food here is worth the drive from town.
This elegantly casual interior, rich with reclaimed wood, earth tones, and natural light, has a separate lounge and bar area. Locally sourced dishes make this a South Austin delight.
