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.

Counter Culture is the type of place I look for in a city; it's relaxed, a little funky and definitely off the beaten path. I came here with my husband, an omnivore who isn't afraid to dive in and enjoy vegan food, for an evening...More
