We love the ease of Galaxy Cafe. The whole family can be arguing about foods then go into Galaxy and everyone is pleased. My favorite is the turkey burger with sweet potatoes. My husband loves the shrimp spinach salad. They have an excellent wine list. The owner is so groovy and comes around to the tables to make sure you are happy with your food. We will go back time and time again.

Nice place for a low key family meal that won't break the wallet.

Our party of 6 really enjoyed the Galaxy. Quite a variety of sandwiches to choose from, and the sides are varied. The fresh fruit and mashed sweet potatoes were excellent. My fresh mozzarella and tomato sandwich was quite good. Atmosphere is like a diner, but pleasant and clean.

When taking my not-so-foodie bro out to dine in Austin, this was a perfect option when looking for something minimal and a not-so-killing my colon, Mexican. Despite the hipster atmosphere that is Austin, it is in essence, a diner indeed. I have to agree with most and say that the sweet potato fries were spectacularly fried, crisp, and sweet. However, the promise of a delicious prosciutto, mozzarella, and pesto mayo on a toasted French baguette, was a little disappointing when it was clear that this French baguette reminded me of Subway; barely toasted and obvious that it had been sitting out since sometime this afternoon. Turkey meatloaf with peppers was a hit on the bro's end. So, for a decent bite, do it. For something particularly satisfying, there are better options.

I don't just love this place because it's around the corner from me in Clarksville...it's just a fun little diner. Quality food, if a little pricey. Fantastic salads and old style blue plate specials.
