Fresh and different food combinations in a homey setting

We actually came here for our anniversary based on a friend's recommendation. We went for an early dinner 5:30-ish, and received good quick service. We tried the salmon dumpling appetizer and also you get jalapeño cornbread muffins - they were fine. The split pea soup was good but I like my own... read more

Went here for a dinner with another couple. This was my second time here (first time was more than 3 years ago), and the food was still very tasty and reasonably priced. Unfortunately, the service was horrible. When we arrived, we were told to go back outside and find our own way to the Garden Room, where the host would... More

We have been here a couple times. The food is delicious. I had chicken and spinach crepes with a curry sauce. A table of six with no disappointment. Very convenient for graduation.

Just happened on this place and it was a great find. There were four in our party and we each has a different salad. Service was excellent and the food was delicious.

We were drawn to the Eastside Cafe because of its backyard garden. We had a delicious meal! I recommend the baked brie with apple chutney to start. The vegetable enchiladas were great as well! We were seated in the smaller building, and it was cozy and quiet. I'll definitely go back next time we're in Austin!

A casual café with friendly staff serving tasty home-style fare. The parking is easy and prices are very reasonable, and beer & wine are served. It’s a short drive from the Longhorn’s Campus and the LBJ Museum and assuredly a much better option than most on campus eateries.

We were heading to one of my favorite restaurants in the area and it was all boarded up! So we drove around a bit and decided on Eastside. It was a bit after 12 so we did have to wait about 15 minutes but the day was beautiful and we sat on the porch. BTW - you can park behind... More

We were seated in the second building, not the main house and it so lacked ambiance. Not romantic at all. Very disappointed in that. Felt like I was back at camp in the mess hall. Food was adequate but so much less than I expected. Just not outstanding or special. I definitely would NOT go back again. Service was fine... More
