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

The food was good but our tip was changed on our credit receipt from $20 to $50. The management said it was signed so they can't do anything about it.

The mashed sweet potatoes were divine and complimented the rosemary tenderloin bites so well. Additionally, the mixed greens salad prior to the meal was accompanied by my choice of dressings (made in house). Delicous! We were too full for dessert, but I must return for the advertised buttermilk pie. The only drawback to the restaurant was the noise level in... More

I have been going here for years. The food is fresh and delicious. I love the mushroom crepes, artichoke manicotti and shrimp quesadillas, for example. I have noticed that more and more restaurants are loud—either the music is loud/slash/awful or the acoustics are terrible—such that you can barely have a conversation. (Or maybe I'm becoming a grouchy old lady.) The... More

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.
