Discovering new places to eat is always so much fun, especially when it is a great find, and this place is. First of all, easy to find, better parking than expected (we are on the eastside, after all) the restaurant is located in several old houses next to their organic garden which takes up the rest of the block, so...

Loved our meal here this week. Nice diverse menu, but not overwhelming. Very fresh and tasty versions of the classic meatloaf, cornbread, etc., but also more modern and international influenced American cuisine. Well worth the wait and save room for dessert!

A causal delicious choice for lunch or dinner. An old house divided into several rooms so not noisy or crowded. Wonderful staff, knowledgable and helpful. Lots of choices, some fresh from the restaurant garden. Very reasonable. Excellent choice of wines.

I loved this place! I wanted something a little offbeat for a Sunday brunch with my college-age daughters and husband. We had the Brie and chutney, eggs Benedict, migas and Belgian waffle. Everything was delicious and fresh - and there was plenty of it to go around! The server was sweet and very attentive! Don't miss this place!

Cute ambiance, good food, decent service. Had to wait about :30, but they have a garden and coffee shop area to kill time in, so no big deal.

Four of us ate lunch at this place and thoroughly enjoyed the ambience. The vegetarian and chicken entrees ordered by the others at our table were very good. I ordered the smoked salmon ravioli, one of their so-called classic dishes. The ravioli itself was hardly noticeable, because it was swimming in way too much sauce. For my taste, the ravioli... More

This is normally not the type of restaurant I would dine at but I figured I would take a chance and I am glad that I did. The place is an old house so it is a small restaurant but very cozy and a good place to take a date. Because of the small size it isn't too loud where... More

Took a cab as it is 2-3 miles from our hotel downtown, but well worth it. Converted house and garden house in back make up this restaurant. Traditional Texas favorites and others. I enjoyed pork tenderloin-it certainly was tender! Wonderful side dishes and wine. Great service! Highly recommend if you are in Austin!

If you are looking for a place to go a little off the beaten path, Eastside Cafe is a good alternative. It's housed in a refurbished older home on the east side of I35. Our party shared chips and salsa (which was great) and the Potstickers (not my favorite). We also shared their green salad which was delicious and BIG.... More

This cafe was recommended to me by my daughter and later a friend suggested we meet there for lunch, so now I was really curious. We got lucky in that there was a cancelation, and were seated after a short wait. It is popular, so I would recommend making reservations for your visit. We were a party of three each... More
