Pablano Soup!

Nuevo Cafe is know for the Pablano Soup! It is fantastic. If you like a little spice this is the dish to try. Also they make homemade pimento cheese that is so delicious. The atmosphere is very Austinish which is quite cool.

Stopped in for lunch on a whim and I'm so glad that we did. Our order was to go so we grabbed a menu and talked to the nice lady behind the counter, made our decisions and proceeded to wait for our food. While we waited we chatted with the staff who, upon hearing it was our first visit, brought... More

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

This is a fantastic lunch spot featuring sandwiches, soups, and other daily specials. Lots of veggie options, quick service and great food. The poblano soup is legendary!
