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.

My wife and I paid a visit to this cafe for lunch as we were leaving town. It's located in an old refurbished house, and you do feel like you are eating in someone's dining room (though the owner's could spruce up the decor a bit more - maybe hang a piece of art or two?) The food was excellent... More

The Eastside Cafe is a small gem of a restaurant in Austin, a gem I return to often when in Austin. It's located just to the east of 35E, a very short distance from downtown Austin, in a pretty white clapboard house, complete with a front porch and hardwood floors. The service is very friendly, unassuming, attentive but not disruptive.... More

Great food, warm and accommodating service, intimate scale. All good. True, that small room can magnify the presence of a boisterous group, but then it feels so good when they leave. Superb vegetable dishes, not just for vegetarians. If I could change one thing, it would be the inclusion of something less rich for dessert. BTW, the beet salad is... More

Built in an old home, this restaurant has consistently pleased over the years. Food is fresh and tasty and the atmosphere in the small dining room we were in was perfect for a family get together. If you're in a hurry they also have a take out cafe next door.

We all arrived last weekend at different times from different places but arranged to have dinner here. There were five of us. We made reservations and were easily accommodated with the "odd" number. Many selections on the menu, even gluten free options. No liquor, just wine or beer but that didn't slow us down. The menu was excellent, highly recommend... More

We were a large family group and this was a good choice for a quiet room. The artichoke soup and the steak with chimichuri were favorites. The service was good.

I finally ate lunch here after hearing rave reviews about it from friends. I went with a group for lunch and the food is very good. I had the pulled pork enchiladas with goat cheese. It's a nice twist on Tex Mex. I loved every bite. A friend had the Tuesday Tacos and he liked them. We ordered the buttermilk... More
