AWESOME Poblano soup. If you don't get anything else, get this! I live in Austin and I always get a quart of soup and a pint of their homemade pickles. Nice atmosphere.

I have eaten here many times and it's always good. The poblano soup is the BEST. Also, the "home style" potato chips with the sandwiches are really tasty. Great place for lunch solo, with your spouse or just to meet a friend or two!

My girlfriend and I stopped by Nuevo Cafe one day after class, and we enjoyed it. I had the nuevo club, and she a sandwich that included Granny Smith apple. The combination of the richness from the meat and cheese paired well with the sweetness from the apple. The both enjoyed the poblano soup the most. It is really unique... More

Small cafe with the best food ever. They are famous for their Pueblano Soup. A spicy, cream soup that goes well with any of their sandwiches. Moderate prices and great food.

The food at Nueavo Cafe is amazing. They have a poblano soup that is delicious and a meal in itself. Their sandwiches are fresh takes on old classics. I had the pimento cheese which was completely made from scratch and completely delicious. My mother had a BLT with a Texas twist of jalapenos. She said it was delicious. The only... More

A friend took me here for lunch, and then I quickly took my husband back so he could experience this little place. The menu is simple, but everything we have tried is delicious. The poblana soup is my new favorite food. It is the best soup I have ever had. The chicken salad is excellent! They are only open for... More

If you go to Nuevo Cafe (which is highly advisable), you MUST try the pablano soup, REALLY! It's so good! They also make the best Cobb salad I've ever had.
