It was a delicious breakfast! the person that invited me, was waiting with a pair of cheese/ham croisants, cause "they sell out to fast", and after that I also went for a banana muffin and a coffee. it was a simple, extremely delicious breakfast, in a local... read more

I've been going to Sweetish Hill Bakery off and on for years. I like the simple atmosphere and the coffee. However it has disturbed me that lately their baked goods are dry. Seems like they might not be fresh. I was disappointed by what I bought. The cookie and muffins tasted like they were a day old or even more.... More

Longlived Austin standby, dependably delectable bakery treats including palmiers, muffins, great bread, and a variety of cakes. Many of our family's birthday cakes originate here- lemon and chocolate and Italian cream cake are scrump. Soup and salad are fresh, and sandwiches are made to order.

I had two experiences from this bakery: a yellow cake with chocolate buttercream frosting at a party, and a couple days later, breakfast. Both were wonderful, and I know my desserts! You can get a hot breakfast here, as I did: scrambled egg, sausage or bacon, bailly. Everything was fresh and delicious, with generous portions.

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.

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
