“Just great!!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

They brought out on the house crossiants. We ate creme brûlée French toast appetizer. Never had any French toast as this. Must have!
Also had goat cheese omelette and migas. One of the best. Especially the goat cheese.
Desert..... Lemon rosemary cake!

Service also was pretty good. Had 20 min wait but was worth it. Great atmosphere and decor.

“Awful!”
Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

A friend and I came here for dinner after reading all of the reviews about how great this place is. The ants on our table should have been a sign to walk out before our drinks were delivered but alas we stayed. Drink orders were wrong...not sure what's so confusing about bringing out an iced tea. The waitress seemed a bit "off" and was rude. The food was downright disgusting. Neither of us ate more than 1/4 of our food. With so many great food choices in Austin, avoid this place unless you want horrible service and food that is inedible.

Hi Tiffany! I am so sorry about what happened. I am not sure what happened but I do apologize. We have totally different standards than those mentioned. I apologize that we fell short that evening. I hope you will give us another chance in the future to show you what we're about! Thanks again for checking in!

“Creme Brûlée French Toast”
Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Delicious! Nice austin feel and wonderful food. Our service began bad without someone approaching our table for quite some time, but another waiter came over and was absolutely excellent. I came simply for the creme brûlée French toast and it was delicious! Will definitely return to try other menu items.

“Unexpected Delight”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

I wasn't sure what to expect and was really glad I accepted the invitation for brunch to this bistro. The french toast was over the top. Check it out.

“Lunch was great..”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Went here for a Valentines day lunch, and we had a hard time selecting from the menu. From the appitizer alone there was only 1 dish I was not intrested in. From the entree and other sections everything looked great. I ended up getting a crabcake sandwich which was good. We had a torte cheese ball for the appetizer, which was really good as well. The only thing I guess I could say no drink menu. The waiter only suggested 2 drinks, tea or hibicus tea.
