I had the sweet potato and pecan tamales as my meal, my daughter had a bagel. The rest of the party had full meals and all loved them. It was a bit of a wait on a Saturday morning but we enjoyed our meal. True Austin quaintness!

Went for breakfast here whilst staying in Austin. As other reviewers said it is a veggie joint. We had omelettes which were hot and very tasty. Place is quite quirky (but in a good way). Was very popular and the service was great. Will return.

I liked everything here and we came for breakfast two mornings in a row from our nearby BnB... if we'd discovered it sooner, we would have come all four. I had the oven cake breakfast with grilled blueberry corn bread and agave nectar, and next day the tamale breakfast with sweet potato pecan tamales and salsa, OMG good. Husband had... More

I went here late in the morning for breakfast. I got a cappuccino and Wanna BLT. The cappuccino was gross. The milk tasted old and acidic, almost rancid. The sandwich was equally gross, with an obscene amount of pesto mayo, and gobs falling off everywhere. The "bacon" was not anywhere close to the real thing. I'm sorry, but if you're... More

I was not happy about going here initially because I was HUNGRY and there was a little bit of a wait, but it was worth it. The sweet potato tamales were pretty killer and the coffee was strong. I was surprised about how reasonable priced it was...will definitely come again!

REALLY enjoyed this vegan menu offered at Bouldin Creek. Very creative and so tasty! I was with friends and we all shared each others entrees and enjoyed every bite! I had Autumn enchiladas, my friends had the South Austin Stir-Fry (voted best entree on our table), BBQ plate (which had a vegan frito pie as a side!) and a salad... More

From the greeting to the final payment of the check, this is a great dining experience. We enjoyed a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner during our four-day visit to Austin and it was the very best food we had the whole time. Their prices are lower than you wound expect when you see the portions and high quality of... More

I was here for breakfast. The food was creative and well-prepared. I had a spinach mushroom omelet. There were many Mexican style breakfast choices as well as more traditional food.

We've been travelling around the US for the last 10 days and this was without a doubt the best Vegan restaurant we've been to so far. Huge range of dishes, great staff and the food was delicious.
