Great Vegetarian

This cafe is quaint and wonderful. I would classify it as a trendy place, as there is a lot of hipsters hanging out. However, I have to rave on the food. My favorite is the BLT which is not bacon, it's grilled, favorable tofu. It is awesome. Salads are delicious also.

Right in the heart of the hip 78704 zip code in Austin, Bouldin Creek has great vegetarian meals at very reasonable prices. The food is eclectic (mex, southern, mediterranean) The service is friendly and they, unlike a lot of places in that area, have good parking. Bouldin Creek is also a coffee shop, so there is a hip, energetic vibe... More

My wife and I are visiting from NM, both long time restaurant cooks/servers/managers/owners and very happy to have found this place. Best food that we found in Austin, and there is some strong competition. Excellent service. Neighborly atmosphere. If we were to move to Austin it would be within walking distance of Bouldin Creek.

I've been here quite a few times and each time the food has been on point. My husband is not a vegetarian and even he loves the food! The service is hit or miss, but the staff is always really nice and friendly. It's just that sometimes it takes forever for someone to take your order or get you a... More

Stopped in for a late lunch. My son and I were visiting Austin for the day. He ordered a grilled cheese, and I ordered the deluxe salad. My son's sandwich came out nice and hot, it was tasty. About the right price for what he got. My salad did not come out with his sandwich. It did not come out... More

We always end up here for breakfast since it is good quality food and great service. Apparently a grilled blueberry muffin is a thing and it is pretty damn good. Lots of vegetarian choices and great coffee drinks to choose from. Wifi too

Every trip to Austin includes at least one meal here. The atmosphere is relaxed and the food is excellent! These people know what they're doing.
