We started with warm brie and apple chutney, and it was fantastic. I had the stuffed shrimp and they made homemade fries! Yum!

There are many intimate rooms and corners and almost has a B&B feel. My daughter and I came for a dinner and even my finiky eater enjoyed her entre. If I lived closer, we'd go more frequently.

After leaving the LBJ Library we headed out to find something to eat. Saw a few places but this one looked different, eclectic. It was around 2pm and the place was empty. So we got seated and served quickly. Both dishes were well-made and tasted delicious (Greek salad with chicken, chicken club sandwich). Kudos to our server who went back... More

What a jewel! This house has been renovated to be a quaint restaurant with an amazing menu. Many of the ingredients are grown in their own garden! Local veggies and fresh ingredients- it just doesn't get better. I recommend the garden burger and my husband had the beef tenderloin. Everything was so well prepared. Service was excellent. We had reservations... More

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
