A cool exterior, matched on the inside. For breakfast, the wraps are terrific; simple and good. Staff friendly, happy to have you there. Drink bar is a nice touch, help yourself without feeling unhelpful Will be back often

This was an excellent choice. It was fast service and really good food. Cafe style. It is not full service (you refill your water, order at counter, etc) but it's more than adequate.

We had the grilled salmon salad with avocado and dill dressing. It was excellent. And our son loved the grilled cheese on whole wheat children's meal.

Love the breakfast burritos…you can choose your ingredients…french press best in town with espresso beans on the side. Veggie burgers homemade and the turkey meatloaf with whipped sweet potatoes amazing. Love to go here alone or with family...

Galaxy cafe is a great spot to bring family, dine in with friends, or grab a quick bite before heading back to work. They are near downtown and also offer take-out. I have never had a bad meal at Galaxy. They also offer a small variety of wine and local beer. The menu is varied, offering meals for meat eaters... More

Sort of a semi-cafeteria approach to eating. You take a tray; order & pay for your food; & when it's ready, wait staff brings it to your table. Even on a gloomy, Austin winter sort of day, this place was very bright. Liked the big mirrors, which reflected light from everywhere. And the food is totally excellent. Try the bleu... More

Found this place by accident. We were hungry and did not know where to go. They had parking in front so we went in. Menu has a large selection of comfort food. Hamburgers. Fries and so on. My date selected the veggie burger and I had the turkey burger. With fries and sweet potato fries. Very tasty indeed! Not very... More

When it's been a long and hard day, and I don't want to cook but need a healthy meal, Galaxy is my go-to cafe. First, it is on my way home but off on a quiet street, which is a haven from Austin traffic. Second, it is a cafe where you order at the counter so the wait is short.... More

I've been many times to Galaxy locations and once again they did not disappoint. I brought eight new diners who were thrilled that there was a cafe like this so close to downtown. Parking lot was filled at 11am during the week already busy for lunch. Which this kind of traffic, you know it has to be good. Everyone's food... More
