Been here many times before and can't believe I haven't reviewed it yet. Eastside Cafe is always consistently good. Sunday brunch was no exception. Items our table ordered were various benedicts with ham, shrimp and crab cakes, and creamy spinach, as well as huevos rancheros, blintzes, and apple walnut waffles. Everyone left happy and satisfied. We don't know what their... More

We went to Eastside Cafe because it was close to the LBJ Library, and we were pleasantly surprised . It's in an old bungalow with lots of rooms. We ate in the Garden Room, simple and clean. My husband had the daily special, fish sticks and Mac and cheese, with a small salad. He liked it, although the fish portion... More

Over the years we have continued to return to this delightful homey restaurant, for their delicious menu offerings as well as the peaceful atmosphere. It is a converted house with small rooms which creates an intimate setting. Outside there is an organic garden to stroll through. We travel a fair amount and try different restaurants but this is a very... More

It is a tradition that my daughter and I have every time I visit her in Austin. It is quaint, quiet and special. The atmosphere, service, and food excels each time we eat there. We had a smorgasbord of choices and enjoyed each one as we spent time communicating and bonding with each other. Every bite was well worth the... More

Went there for lunch. They seated my friend and I in the outside house. It is quite, can have a nice conversation without raising one's voice. I had a vegetable burger, it was very good. It came with french fries and a sauce for the burger, delicious. My friend had chicken, squash and a salad. We both commented on how... More

Okay have to give credit to SXSW guru Mike Shea for turning me onto this place. Very down home but modern place. True farm-to-table with the farm right next to the restaurant. Appetizer of mushroom and ginger potstickers...mmmm. Entree of Grilled meatloaf! Who'd a thunk it?!? Melted in my mouth. My only wish was that I had a bigger appetite.... More

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
