After pigging out on BBQ, eating in trendy places and food trucks, we wanted our last meal in Austin to be a comfortable place, well-loved by the locals. After a lot of searching online, we made a reservation at Eastside Cafe. It was a great choice! It is located in a converted house with parking if you get there early,... More

Located in an old house on Manor Road Eastside joins the ever growing eateries on this side of Austin. Sunday morning offers brunch with savory as well as sweet breakfast elections as well as regular Sunday offerings from roasted chicken and meat loaf to hamburgers. Service is quick, attentive and polite. Home style cooking with a special flourish like flowers... More

The food was good but our tip was changed on our credit receipt from $20 to $50. The management said it was signed so they can't do anything about it.

The mashed sweet potatoes were divine and complimented the rosemary tenderloin bites so well. Additionally, the mixed greens salad prior to the meal was accompanied by my choice of dressings (made in house). Delicous! We were too full for dessert, but I must return for the advertised buttermilk pie. The only drawback to the restaurant was the noise level in... More

I have been going here for years. The food is fresh and delicious. I love the mushroom crepes, artichoke manicotti and shrimp quesadillas, for example. I have noticed that more and more restaurants are loud—either the music is loud/slash/awful or the acoustics are terrible—such that you can barely have a conversation. (Or maybe I'm becoming a grouchy old lady.) The... More

The food was good but nothing great. It was a little on the cool side when it arrived. The cheese appetizer was very good. The server did a really good job and was super friendly. The atmosphere was romantic. It was a little pricey.

This is a favorite of my cousin, who lives in Austin. Thus, when we are in town, we may well end up here. We had a great jalapeno chicken dish--we split it--and it was plentiful. The crowd on the Sunday evening we were there were mostly older or older wtih kids and older grandkids along with them. Excellent food, good... More

Went to this place looking for something nice for brunch! Had benedict eggs and loved them. When you arrive, looking west and south, one gets to see where the chicken live and some of the plants they grow.

The place is cute and cozy and they let you make reservations. The food is delicious. Great place to meet friends for brunch. It is also family friendly. My 2 year old loved the eggs and waffles.
