Quirky, delightful gem!

What a find! We went for a late breakfast on a Monday. No wait for a table, though it would have been worth one. Neither of us are vegan but the menu selections offered something for both of us. I had the garden bagel with the freshest tomatoes. Hit the spot. My husband had a lunch special... read more

You will not find bacon here so stay away if you want a BLT. You will find creative, healthy plates of tasty food. My friend and I both had the Joe's Smokin' Omelet, a spectacular concoction of egg, spinach, onion and monterrey jack cheese covered with a lovely chipotle pesto. I opted for a serving of tasty organic red and... More

We had a great dining experience at Creek cafe. Had to wait for sometime to get a table but totally worth it. Their Menu is Vegetarian/Vegan but even Non-vegetarians in our group loved the food their. Must try when you are in Austin

Breakfast all day. Veggie/vegan friendly. This was totally my kind of place, my mom and I loved this restaurant. Came here on our last day in Austin. I was craving breakfast tacos but wanted to go to an actual restaurant, not a food truck. This place has a cool, laid back vibe. Surprised how busy it was at 11am on... More

We went for Sunday brunch and it was packed - 1 hour wait but we were offered the community table in order to sit right away - perfect! The service was terrific, the selection was excellent - vegan and vegetarian breakfast, coffee was good and the atmosphere was relaxed and lively. We will be back fro sure.

Very good cappuccino, filling, delicious and original vegan and vegetarian breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fun, friendly indoor and outdoor setting. You won't miss meat on the menu. Best salads in town. Whenever I want healthy, well prepared and presented food, I go to Bouldin Creek Cafe. Locally owned, woman business.

Dropped in for dinner on Friday night. Got the hummus appetizer. It was ok, a bit too salty. Husband got the sweet potato tamales and I ordered the simple beans/rice/salad combo. All was fair --not trrrible, not great. Service was pretty good. Food was inexpensive.

On entering I was a little sceptical remembering similar looking places, but the food was excellent and the choices varied. Servings were hearty, but not overwhelming. This is a place to which I hope to return should I be again in Austin.

Visited for breakfast. Had a nice vegetarian omelette. The menu offers lots of choices for vegetarians, vegans etc...good coffee too. The down side of our experience was our waitress who seemed very put out by our presence.

Although parking was somewhat challenging, it was worth walking the couple of blocks to the restaurant. We were seated outside under the covered area which was very pleasant. The waiter was very friendly and took our order in a timely fashion. The coffee was excellent and so was the veggie burger. We both really enjoyed our meals. It is a... More
