Cheeseburgers with fries or substitute another side for $1 extra...great lunch. The staff here is very attentive and friendly. Parking is limited in front but parking around the seems more plentiful. This is a lunch go to spot when I visit the UT campus for a training conference.

It seems that every time I come to Austin for business, my hosts take me to the Eastside Cafe. It is superior food without the hassle of trying to get downtown, and I've never been disappointed in any of their dishes. They pride themselves on using their own garden. I continue to be surprised by how reasonable their prices are.

We were intrigued by a restaurant that grew much of it's own produce in their own garden and had good reviews for food. What we experienced was far beyond our expectations. Every dish we had on this Father's Day treat was scrumptious. Wonderfully put together and in such a charming location!

Met a few friends for dinner. First place all weekend that was really cool. Good AC! Food was well done, good portion and attentive staff. Like the fresh veggies and great to walk through their garden in the back. There was a wait, but not more than 20 minutes.

After a visit to the LBJ Library we asked about a place for lunch and they told us to try Eastside Café. After a very short drive we arrive at a large house with a lovely porch. It was 1pm but we only had to wait 5-10 minutes. A most helpful waitress took our order she soon returned with what... More

We found Eastside Cafe while in town for the ROT Rally, looking for a place near our hotel where 6 of us could meet for dinner. The menu features items that are grown in their own garden. Our group had a mix of burgers, sandwiches, salad, soup, and the daily specials. Everyone enjoyed everything. They only serve beer and wine,... More

When in Austin I like to try new places, especially small restaurants with good local reviews. The Eastside Cafe had several great reviews and it was easy to see why. It's small, an old house, on Manor Road on the east side of town. Convenient parking and a comfy atmosphere. There were six of us and everyone loved their order.... More

We were hungry and this place looked inviting as we were driving around. Other places had a waiting of 1 hour, but we were able to be seated in about 5-10 minutes. We were 6 in the party. The menu had choices that made everyone happy. Upon entering there was a recipe for buttermilk pie. So that stayed on my... More

We were directed here by a friend, and were the first ones to arrive when they opened at 4PM. Yes we were hungry, and looking forward to Monday's half-price bottle of wine special! All I can say is we were not disappointed, and practically had to roll ourselves to the car we were so full. Take your time, go enjoy,... More

The decor could have used an update, but the food and service are first-rate. We went for lunch on a cloudy day, and our interior table was dank and dark. A different color of paint might improve it immensely. The food is very well prepared, and the service is excellent.
