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

Eastside is hands down our family's favorite "nice local dinner." The service has never disappointed us, and if you call ahead and make reservations, the wait is never too long. You have to remember, this is an old house and seating is a premium, but the meals are as craftsman as the location. The garden on site supplies a surprising... More

If you check out my last review for Eastside Cafe you'll see it was great. It actually told me based on what someone else had what I wanted to try. So I did! OMG the meatloaf was even better than I imagined! It was so moist, so tasty I wanted another piece. But let me back up and start by... More

Eastside cafe is comfortable, calm, with excellent and interesting food. There is a nice variety of food, with wonderful deserts. The appetizers are best shared, as they are filling.

Right in the heart of East Austin is this amazing restaurant. I was in Austin for a work conference and met a client there upon their recommendation. Let's just say my client was spot on. The food was amazing and had great flavor. It is rare when I eat all the food on my plate but at Eastside Cafe I... More
