Maybe it is what I ordered (chicken salad salad) but not tasty and too spicy and the soup (broccoli cheese potato) was bland. The bread served however, was delicious. Service was great, though.

I usually order a pilgrim or a mardi gras sandwich, but this time I got brave and ordered a veggie sandwich. Wow! Veggies, pesto, and cheese on that lovely bread. Service is a little slow, so allow time, its worth it.

The food here is so creative and fresh. Everything here is so fresh you wont find a can opener in the place. Sandwiches to Seafood are all fantastic. If you want dessert you should eat it first. And I do sometimes. All great food and fellowship.

We've been here four times and I have loved everything I ordered. Yesterday I had the chili and cornbread special. I've never eaten cornbread quite like this, but it was fantastic and I look forward to having it again. Everything is made fresh so it takes longer than most are used to. Don't worry, the food is worth the wait.... More

What a great little place to eat. The food was really good and the price is great. It is a cute and cozy place. The service was really good made you feel at home. We would be coming back. If you are in Jefferson stop by the Austin Street Bistro you would regret it.

The owner and chef, takes pride in her cooking and baked breads. Originally from California she has taken the best of the South and combined it with California Cuisine; the flavors and textures are out of this world. There was not one bad dish on the menu, we ate at this resturant three times and had we discovered it sooner... More
