Eighteen flavors of steamed bagels; 11 varieties of schmears; a host of sandwiches served on bagels, challah, or sourdough baguettes; and salads, soups, and roll-ups.
The aromas that greet you at the door of this authentic Mexican bakery do not lie. The breads, rolls, cookies, and pastries are the stuff of sweet dreams.
Roll up to the window, place your order, and munch on a delicious hot one that sags from the hand while you wait. Don't have a cardiac on the way home.
You'll find superior coffee drinks at this relaxed and comfortable neighborhood hangout. Step up to the counter for tasty breakfasts and lunches.
Carrying on the slacker side of Austin tradition, Quack's is a great place to luxuriate over coffee and a pastry. The baked goods are enormous.
The atmosphere here is punctuated by newspapers lying around on wooden tables, as well as by mothers and little girls enjoying a midmorning snack. Cinnamon roll aficionados should try Upper Crust's version, a refined-taste treat that refuses to overwhelm the cinnamon with stickiness. Stop by at lunchtime for soups, salads, and sandwiches, and maybe bring a cake back to the office.
