Lovely home setting with four or five tables in each room. The food was fantastic and, because of the small rooms, it was very easy to have a quiet conversation. Highly recommend.

We started the new year with Brunch at Eastside. The setting is an old home that has been converted into a restaurant. I loved the Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict. The Salad with Grilled Chicken was also a hit. Eastside has a range of comfort food that has built a very loyal following. They only serve Beer & Wine. Service was... More

We were looking for a lunch place before going to the LBJ Presidential Library and found Eastside Café. Housed inside a regular sized house, you might miss it just by driving pass it. They have a relatively simply menu but it does cover a good range of dishes. We ordered the salmon and catfish, both are well-prepared and tasty. The... More

We stopped in on the recommendation of friends, and found this to be a gem among many Austin treasures. It has a creative menu, with many fresh and organic offerings. My husband had a superb pecan waffle while I sampled the carrot manicotti stuffed with artichoke filling and topped with sun fired tomato cream sauce. Both were wonderful. Cafe is... More

One of the amazing places, hidden in the popular East Austin. We did business Christmas lunch and everything was amazing. Food was very delicious with every bite. We ordered 4 appetizers. Cheese quesadillas were the best! All entrees were loved. I had salmon ravioli - excellent flavor balance. Rosemary pork was very popular too. It's a little bit pricey, but... More

Love the concept of farm to table, but I wonder if this restaurant is no longer at the top of its game. Our service was fair; the waitress was friendly when she was there, but disappeared several times and was slow to take our order, check on us and bring us our check. They were not busy at the time.... More

This restaurant makes you feel like you are home or at a favorite relatives home. The setting is cozy, warm and family friendly. I have the pork tenderloin and the sauce made for a sensational taste. Same for the butternut squash. If the sold the sauces to go I would buy a few bottles it was so delicious I look... More

My hands down favorite is their chicken artichoke soup...to die for! I also order the yeast rolls to go with it. They make them hot and fresh as soon as you order them. The vegetables are cooked perfectly crisp and delicious. A top Austin eatery.
