“Great fish wraps”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Been there twice this week. Fish in spinach wrap is wonderful. Cilantro/jalepeno sauce is excellent. Burgers are very good. Sweet potato fries are great. We bought a bottle of pinot noir, which was sweet and pretty awful. Otherwise, very good.

“lovely little spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Food is fresh, tasty, reasonably priced. Clarksville area is a nice walk. Parking lot is sometimes crowded at luch, but you can usually get an on street spot. Try the specials. Go!

“Casual best in Clarksville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I LOVE the Galaxy on West Lynn. It's a total find... they took an old laundromat and repurposed it into a hip and happy neighborhood joint that is low priced with high quality food. Yes, it's partly self-serve at the counter, but every single person working there is nice, on it and welcoming.Food is delivered hot and fresh. It's the kind of place where the staff almost always smiles and says yes... how rare is THAT?

The Galaxy always crowded at lunch and weekend breakfast, yet I can always find a table. This is not a "gourmet" five star. I give it that because it does what it does REALLY well, including the comprehensive gluten free menu. Great for families, meeting for a casual work lunch (Greek salad or ahi tuna burger, fantastic), a good evening meal (the chimchurri steak and sweet potatoes are awesome) tasty breakfast any day (LOVE the Denver scramble)... my ONLY complaints are that it's a little loud and there's relatively weak coffee-- get the french press instead.

It's also the perfect spot for freelancers to plug in the laptop and work undisturbed.

“Average at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Goofy wait in line to order greets you. Slow time to get food. Food average at best in this loud noisy atmosphere. I don't get it why this place so popular...maybe just a good location?

“Gluten Free Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

The good folks at Galaxy Cafe not only have a fantastic full service menu but also a gluten free menu that is almost as comprehensive as their regular one. There is no compromise in the quality or flavor in any of their gluten free options, and they even have gluten free bread available for breakfast toast. This is an order at the counter cafe which I love when dining with a group. I have eaten at both the south Austin and the downtown locations and the service, staff and cleanliness have always been terrific.
