This is an Austin, Texas must stop! Freshly baked goods, tasty sandwiches and soups, vegan options, and attention to detail in this quaint but delightful bakery! I love this place!

Austin does not have great bakeries. Sweetish Hill does better than most. The apple dishes are consistently good, however, and this local establishment has proved its staying power.

Just a breakfast meeting - liked the atmosphere. Coffee serving and muffins are huge. Outdoor seating is nice.

I tend to avoid pastries and breads, but the homemade soups are excellent, it is a local hang, and good for a fast lunch or coffee to go. On the few occasions when I have indulged in a cookie, they rocked. There's a funny vibe to this place- not in a bad way, it is very Austin, but hard to... More

I've been going to Sweetish Hill since I was a child growing up in Austin in the 1970's. When I got married in Austin in the 1990's, we ordered our wedding cake from Sweetish Hill and it was the best wedding cake ever! I was recently in Austin for a visit and decided to swing by on my wedding anniversary... More

We ran over to Sweetish Hill Bakery on West 6th Street to pick up one of their amazing chocolate cakes for our Valentine's Eve post-movie party with friends. While we had made a good run through Central Market South earlier for some deli delights for the informal gathering of friends, we needed some serious chocolate cake to anchor the festivities....

We have been fans of Sweetish Hill since we first came to Austin. Whenever I drive south on Mopac, I try to stop in on the return trip. Definitely the best "sticky buns" in town!

I suppose you go to a restaurant for the food, and that can't be faulted here. Soups, sandwiches, and of course the bakery items are fresh and delicious, visit after visit. Service, however, is a frequent fail. Finally decided to write a review today after the counter person did not even make eye contact as she took my order, stopped... More
