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.

Eastside Cafe is located in the up and coming section of East Austin, in a converted house with its own gardens. We went there prior to a theatre performance at the Salvage Vanguard Theatre and had an enjoyable meal. We started with their refreshing cocktail of lemonade, champagne and fruit juice, which came decorated with small wild roses. Had the... More

In a nice old house in East Austin. The food and service were good, and it has a good wine selection. The atmosphere is very "Austin," so a good place to go to get a feel for the city. The restaurant was very vegetarian friendly. I had the roasted vegetable enchiladas, and I highly suggest them. The restaurant has been... More

Creative menu with some highlights but overall nothing special. Very near the Salty Sow restaurant on the east side of Interstate Highway 35, I enjoyed my meal but see no reason to return. It just wasn't memorable. The service was very good.

Eastside Cafe is on a strip of Manor Rd right of I 35 that is seeing a lot of gentrification. A lot of old homes and buildings are being converted into restaurants, shops, bars, and small plots of organic gardens that supply some of the restaurants. Eastside is one of these places, a charming older home converted into a charming,... More

As always, fantastic food. The service is five stars. We have eaten here many times, and everything is excellent.
