4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The whole family visiting went to breakfast. Did not realize there was no meat. I had the potato omelet with leeks and sour cream, fruit and coffee. My husband had the reuben (cabbage) and there were breakfast sandwiches. All of the food was good. The service was excellent. Would like to come back for dinner.

Went with a few people for dinner, food was excellent. I had the Slackers with salad. Rice and Beans with a side salad. The beans were nicely spiced and the side salad with the vinaigrette dressing was tasty. We shared an appetizer of bread and chipotle pesto. It is worth the try.

I love meeting friends here for breakfast. The vegans, carnivores and omnivores are always happy. Great service with fresh local food. Try the beet lemonade and sweet potato tamales. Don't judge em till you try them!

Boulder Creek Cafe is a regular stop for us, whenever we are in Austin. We love the fact that most of the items on the menu are, or can be made, vegan. My husband always gets the Veggie Royale veggie burger, but I have a tough time deciding between the delicious salads, tacos, and Soul Food Plate or Veggin' Out... More

A very hipsters, and thus borderline pretentious, eatery with a cool atmosphere and very tasty vegetarian food -- the McFib tempe BBQ sandwich was excellent! Will come again!

We heard that this place was great, and it didn't disappoint. Was in town for 4 days and ate here at least 4 times. Portions were filling, and the drinks on offer were incredible. The breakfasts were especially good and the servers were excellent. I tell all my friends who visit Austin to eat here!

Being a vegetarian and reading reviews, I was super excited to go here. However, upon arrival, nothing really stuck out. It was all over the place and I found the seating odd. The food was average. I found the use of herbs overwhelming and a bit off putting. I found the food more typical of health food rather than great... More

Met for lunch and had a wonderful meal. Mostly vegetarian or vegan dishes, but all great! The beverage choices are nice for what I'd call a coffee shop. They have a nice bar. They don't take kindly to meetings, though. Watched them scoot folks off so they could free up lunch tables.

I had a loaded grilled cheese that was heavenly, I know grilled cheese really but don't judge it was killer! My daughter ordered this amazing smokey hot pesto that came with ciabatta strips.I had dessert tea and it was the best. I would go back to just have that! Our server was great but of course I can't remember his... More

Loved the food! I had the chickpea "chicken salad" sandwich, and my partner had the veggie burger. Both were delicious and reasonably priced, the wait staff were friendly and super helpful, and we loved that it was walking distance from South Congress. Overall a great experience!
