This little old house has been an Eastside Austin favorite of mine for years. If you are looking for original delicious food with fresh (some grown on premises) ingredients look no further. Menu items are affordable and quality is excellent. Atmosphere is cozy and charming (tablecloths!) Service is great! Recent visit had me sampling goat cheese and beef enchiladas....YUM. They...

My dinner at Eastside Cafe was great! A small, cozy environment located in a converted house made me really feel like I was just sitting with my friends at my grandma's house. Their food follows these same characteristics and will make you feel warm and at home. Delicious food and great for reconnecting with old friends.

I have been visiting Austin since the late 80's and rarely do I miss the opportunity to have dinner at this east side icon which is situated in a converted house and divided into several rooms. The atmosphere is quiet, the service attentive and the food is great! If you want fancy, go somewhere else. However, if you want beautifully... More

I recently dragged my 84-year-old, highly value-conscious father to this wonderful (though slightly pricey) restaurant to meet my nephew for lunch. Dad later admitted he really enjoyed the "quality" of his chicken club sandwich and found it to be much better than his usual fare. My nephew and I both ordered exactly the same thing--the delicious "Sesame Catfish" with the... More

What a delightful place. In a bungalow with several rooms, this cafe offers excellent food at a reasonable price. Very popular. Brunch menu is varied. Best eggs benedict I have had in a very long time. Free parking adjacent although a wait for a vacant spot can easily occur, especially on the weekends. Wait staff is very good.

Lovely choice for brunch...I had the pulled pork and blue cheese enchiladas which hit the spot. Even though we had reservations, we were led to the little house behind the main house where we thought we were going to eat. At first we felt a bit disappointed since the main house has a lot more character, but in the end... More

I have been going to this place for many years. It is old Austin, truly yummy food. Fresh ingredients, very friendly service. I think there have been many restaurants in Austin that come and go, but a place like this that manages to have a great menu always is there because of a reason. You must order their baked brie!...

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
