“People of Austin - let's support Sweetish Hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

An absolute Austin special. We go frequently after running townlake, with the dogs - as you are. Great food, low prices. A real Austin crowd, from left-wingers to arch-conservatives. A centerpiece in the "Keep Austin weird" movement.

Always buy bread and danishes, with a lot of variances. All their coffees are excellent and handmade. They even recycle paper-cups, in Texas that means they twenty years ahead from the rest of the state.

Nice outdoor seating - mostly in the shade.

However we're always afraid that Sweetish Hill does not make enough money and might succomb to the Austin sprawl and give up for profit.

Sweetish Hill: you gotta stay. Austin supports you. Austinites go there often.

“Good sandwich and coffee place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2010

The Sweetish Hill Bakery offers a relaxing atmosphere for a quick lunch or an afternoon coffee snack. The food is simple but good and the outside patio very pleasant.

“Yummy in my tummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2009

Sweetish Hill has the best cakes ever. The dense, chocolate cake is phenominal. I also am quite fond of the vegetable sandwich, which has a perfectly ripened avocado atop swiss and other veggies and served on freshly baked wheat bread. Daily homemade soups are always a great choice too.
This is a great place for anyone with a sweet tooth, vegetarian or carnivore!
