My husband and I came down from Houston and we wanted to try some vegan spots. This place was on our list and it was so great we went back for more on the last day of our trip! The food was delicious especially the...queso( like seriously order it). The atmosphere was awesome as well. Abby and Em were our servers on the nights that we went. Both of them were so nice, personable, friendly and attentive. They made suggestions about what to order and told us their favorite menu items and overall made our experience there really great! We can’t wait to come back next time! 🥰More

I am not a vegan or vegetarian by any stretch of the imagination, but my wife is all for healthy eating, so it was with that in mind we tried Counter Culture for lunch one weekday. After finding street parking, we were seated outside on...their funky patio. Service was friendly and helpful. My wife LOVED her veggie frittata, and I managed to find something I could eat (a sub sandwich with something I've never heard of)--the bread was out of this world! While not normally my type of food, the quality is there, and I applaud the restaurant's mission statement.More

Unassuming and amazing!! Counter Culture is the gem of Austin. Fantastic food, friendly staff and a chill atmosphere. The owner is one who treats her staff and customers like family and gives back to the community always.

You have Charming Eastside atmosphere and very friendly service. As always we are greeted with smiles and as an extra bonus they allow our dog in the cozy outside patio. We had the omelette with cashew cheese and spinach. The eggs were cooked perfectly and...the cashew cheese is out of this world. The breakfast burrito also has amazing flavors with tofu and bean based stuffing. For vegan and vegetarian alike this is a great option for brunch!More

We visited Counter Culture when it first opened on a sunny weekday. We had a great meal, mine was fabulous! I had the smothered burrito and beets and sweets as my side. My burrito was huge and the beets and sweets were cooked beautifully. The...burrito was true to it's name, it was smothered! Soooo good, I couldn't eat it all, which made me sad as I couldn't finish my side either. The good news, leftovers! Take a chance and check out this place. You won't be disappointed!More

This was our first meal stop in Austin and it did not disappoint! The buffalo mac n cheez balls were to die for and I couldn't get over how delicious the lavender lemonade mimosa was. Definitely don't miss out on this one!

Nice atmosphere and broad range of options. The best part? Breakfast is served until 3 PM. As for the food itself, it is fresh but rather heavy. A lot of choice.

Went there for take out as we were staying close by. Servers inside were very friendly and very knowledgeable about food sensativities. Food was very tasty and reasonably priced.

Our friends recommend this spot as it is supposedly where the locals go. We came at an off peak time for happy hour (30% off apps) so we had no issue with seating or service. Food was comfort good, nothing spectacular but filled us up...and left us happy. Nice selection of local kombucha and service was knowledgeable and friendly.More
