Fun place to relax and hang out. There are lots of outdoor tables under covers and trees. We like to sit outside because my two year old grand daughter can roam around a little and watch the cars go by. The food is good. An average meal is ten dollars. There are lots of variations on drinks due to the different flavorings available. They have different specials througout the week. There is even a place for dogs and dog owners to hang out.

Great selection of beverages and a friendly vibe - fun atmosphere at this neighborhood collecting point... Local brews including non-alcoholic St. Arnold's rootbeer - and coffee.

It is more about the scene than food, which is standard bar fare, indigenous to the area. Great place to hang with friends and sip!

Love the signs about the snakes and snapping turtles - which is a true warning for the natural setting along a creek, in the trees... And this is in the middle of the city, yet!

The atmosphere is great, the food good. The parking is something to work on, though. The lot is small, and sometimes parking on the street is needed. They had a large selection of hot dogs, with lots of different toppings, all on a homemade bun. We were very impressed with the hot dogs we ordered.

The only thing I was unsure about was if we get free refills on drinks or not. I did not see a self serve soda fountain (we got our initial drinks when we ordered).

A little of "weird" Austin right here in Houston. Bring your book, or a laptop and order a latte. The menu is also good. The parking situation is a little tricky. Be preparted to walk a block or two. And be sure to read the signs or you will get towed.
