Located inside the Downtown DoubleTree Suites, the cafe serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.
The longest continuously operated Drafthouse, the Alamo Drafthouse Village opened in 2001 on Anderson Lane before Anderson Lane was cool. The four-screen cinema specializes in first-run features, with Sony 4K digital projection allowing for both RealD 3D and 48 FPS screenings. Plus, with much of the American Genre Film Archive stored here, it also has 35mm screenings. A recent revamp added new padded chairs and shared tables for food and drink from the Drafthouse’s extensive menu delivered during screenings, and a new patio adds outdoor drinking from the bar.
The bistro burger with fries is the best bet here during the daytime, but Tuesday through Thursday from 4 to 7pm, you can nab great bar food for $5.
Known for sustainability efforts and programming like onsite bee hives and chicken coops, wild boar program, partnership with Austin Montessori school, and weekly farmers dinners, they also boast a well-executed, globally diverse, and seasonally driven menu.
Cake balls: Not just for breakfast anymore. The menu here features appetizers, salads, entrées, soups, and desserts complemented by a well-chosen wine list, a selection of local craft beers in bottles, and a roster of custom cocktails.
You could theoretically stay here all day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Daily hot plate specials include meat loaf with Creole sauce and pork loin over cornbread dressing. Expect a wait for weekend brunch.
Beyond the morning cup o' joe, Austin Java offers an array of sustenance plus luscious desserts.
Fans of humble hogmeat will adore this pork parlor that offers breakfast all day, and bacon worthy of the name. Local beers round out your cholesterol and carbohydrate intake.
This South Austin iteration of a British-themed pub franchise veers slightly askew of its Northside cousin. Though cover bands dominate the calendar Thursday through Sunday, Baker St. occasionally presents original local bands like Pong, Roxy Roca, and the aptly named South Austin Moonlighters. Parking is dicier here than up north, but the patio doesn’t face a freeway. Otherwise, you get a full bar, 23 beers on tap, and a lengthy menu covering everything from Baja tacos to bangers and mash. Happy hour runs until 9pm and all day Sunday.
