Great service, very interesting Saturday Brunch menu. We all had an omelet of some type. All different choices ,we all found our food to be excellent. Wait person was on the ball.

Area of location is an example of old Austin, great shops and buildings.

Get hear early as this is a popular place for all the locals. Any meal is worth the wait, but you have to try the Carrot Cake French Toast. Couples to small families it's all hear. Unique menu, great service and good atmosphere.

Because this is such a popular place, it seems to always have a crowd. They apparently don't take reservations, but we were told if we called in advance with the time before we arrived, they would hold a table for us. As we had 7 in our group, we did so. When we arrived, were told that they had just set 4 people in their only table that could sit 7 people. After over a 30 minute wait, they pulled two tables together, which was very difficult to have a conversation around the table -- especially considering how loud the restaurant is. While good, it was not worth the hour wait to get a table, have the order taken and to receive the order.

This is a MUST eat at cafe. The food is stunningly good, beautifully presented and of an incredibly high standard - should have Michelin Stars actually. Make an effort and go to this cafe, it really is amazing.
