A nice cross between a convenience store and a grocery store - the place you want to have around the corner when you run out of syrup midway through the pancakes.
Around the corner from El Mercado, you'll find Mexican fare, sandwiches, burgers, and smoothies to enjoy in the expansive basement dining area.
These days Austin's oldest surviving grocery offers a bountiful menu of hot and cold sandwiches, an array of fresh salads, and hearty soups in the fall and winter.
In addition to a full espresso bar and French bakery, this place has an extensive menu including sweet and savory crepes, quiches, and croque-monsieurs. Sandwiches are available as paninis or on a fresh half-baguette, and all breads and pastries are baked in-house.
The helves are stocked with cereals, snacks, and packaged foods – an array of items that ranges from umbrellas and toilet paper to JuiceLand beverages, eggs, milk, and ice cream. Honey and skin care products from BeeWeaver Apiaries of Dripping Springs are expected soon. A small wine selection and an impressive walk-in beer cooler, as well as a full complement of freshly made coffee beverages, make this friendly, upscale neighborhood convenience store a keeper.
In addition to a full complement of coffee and tea beverages, Bennu offers pastries and prepared foods from local companies 24 hours a day.
This Jewish deli serves a wide range of fresh-baked bagels and house-made cream cheese (in flavors like pb nutella and pickle & dill), as well as homestyle favorites like matzo ball soup and hot pastrami on rye.

National chain serving "authentic New York style."
This trailer serves excellent Louisiana-style fare.
H-E-B’s Central Market brand remains primarily known as one of Austin’s favorite grocery outlets. Yet both locations have featured our town’s favorite consumable – live music – since their inceptions. Founded in 1994 and adjacent to the Heart Hospital of Austin, the original North Lamar location puts an emphasis on family fare thanks in part to its large outdoor playscape, which sits just behind its cafe and patio stage hosting Latin music, Americana, children’s music, and Austin mainstays like Ginger Leigh, all for free.
Established in 1999, Central Market’s second homegrown location absorbed a bit of the South Austin funkiness its location would call for. An even more eclectic calendar than its elder sibling ’s encompasses everything from Western swing and bluegrass to jazz, Latin rock, and whatever it is White Ghost Shivers make so much fun. With that much music, it’s no wonder CM South features live music four days a week, all at no charge.
