I got a variety of "to go" items. The cupcakes are huge and delicious and boxed perfectly for travel. The flaky layered cinnamon roll was supposed to be sampled in the parking lot...didn't work out for me - I ate the whole thing immediately. Wonderful puffy, sand tart like cookies and so much more to choose from. Excellent staff (they... More

Some of the prettiest and tastiest we have had! It is worth the drive through Austin and Hyde park neighborhood is interesting, as well.

Super lattes and huge selection of pastries/breakfast rolls. Kind and caring personnel. Wait line can be long or not at all, fun to people watch and the line moves quickly. Love the children! The Cool Bus is near by. Hyde Park gem.

I love Quack's! Everything I've ever gotten is delicious! The atmosphere is perfect for studying, meeting a friend, or just hanging out! Not the comfiest chairs I've ever sat in, but they make up for it with yummy treats!! Any time I have a friend in town this is a must-go spot! I'd recommend the tiramisu or chocolate ginger cookies

My only complaint is that there are so many choices it is so hard to decide! The pies, cookies and coffees are delicious!

Great treats and cappuccino at VERY reasonable prices. Found this place the first night in Austin and went back every night for a treat and cappuccino. Loved it.

My family came here after having a meal out. Lots of cookies, brownies, pies and cakes. I didn't find anything to be out of this world, but it was certainly good. Everyone had different items and we were all happy. It was sort of late, so many items were gone and well picked over. Staff was friendly and the patrons... More

Quack's cakes and pies and cookies are delicious and should be frequently enjoyed. But, they go a step further. I sponsored an event where we wanted personalized cookies in the shape of a book. They didn't have exactly what I wanted, but the manager worked very hard to create the perfect cookie that looked exactly like a book. The cookies... More

We had a sweet tooth attack one night and found this bakery still open. We checked it out and it had something for every one. Unique busy place. The ginger cookie is the best!
