you know what I'm referring to -- central market has so much variety that no other chain beats it. Expensive, but a lot of interesting foods. The variety of apples this time of year is unparalleled.

You can eat here or even better get wonderful things to put together at home! This is our absolutely very favorite food store in Austin. Prices are a bit higher than at a low end store, but you can get the very best cuts of meat, fish, and the deli is wonderful!

This location is in the midst of several highway crossings, but fairly easy to get to. The crowd is typical Austin which is great. Some are here to linger over work, others with their family, and others out with a group. You can pick up something prepackaged if in a super hurry, but the menu offers a wide variety of... More

We had lunch here with some family and a family friend. Cool vibe, had live music that was good, delicious food and good beer on draft. This is a fast and easy way to get a great meal in Austin. Highly recommend the cafe.

This is part of the larger grocery store and that does not do it justice. Although there are lots of pre-packaged prepared foods available, there is also a full service made to order cafe (no wait staff). You could easily sit for hours and work (which I did one afternoon). They made up a special meal per order to so... More

Good healthy food. I have eaten here a number of times. It can be crowded at peak hours but the food is good. They do have bottles of Tabasco available as some of the "healthy" food is a bit bland for me.

Great gelato, beer and wine. The food in the cafe is hit or miss. Extensive menu with daily specials.

The cafe at Central Market is wonderful --- casual atmosphere, live music often, and fresh food at a great price. I LOVE the salmon burger with mango-papaya slaw and sweet potato fries. It's so good, I've had it at every visit. Great spot for casual dining with great food.

When we visit Austin we stay near Central Market and dine here often. The cafe menu is extensive and very reasonably priced. Recently we had the delicious bison burger and sweet potato fries. The fries could have been a bit more crispy but were otherwise fine. For breakfast the biscuits and gravy are great. A half order is enough for... More
