Austin's Hyde Park Neighborhood Restaurants

Whizzing past the alphabet streets of Austin's eccentric Hyde Park is risky for the indecisive and fruitful for the hungry, as its prime locale makes it a hotbed for killer restaurants of all varieties. Once 19th century sleepy streetcar suburb and now a revitalized haven for families, young professionals and college kids insistent on ditching the dorms, the neighborhood crop is as diverse as its populace?wheatgrass bars to oyster-slinging fish markets to bistros with Food Network star power. Below, just a few of our Hyde Park favorites.

Austin Neighborhoods: Hyde Park Restaurants

Vino Vino

4119 Guadalupe Street, Austin, TX 78751

Sitting on the western cusp of Hyde Park is beloved Vino Vino, a swanky yet cozy space filled nightly with romantic dates and purple-toothed conversations. The wine's a given, and the chilled cantaloupe gazpacho with scallop ceviche garnish is key on a warm evening.

Asti Trattoria

408c E 43rd St, Austin, TX 78751

With <i>The Next Food Network Star</i> contender Brad Sorenson at the wheel, ASTI Trattoria and its homespun Italian-American cuisine can keep foodies and barflies occupied for hours.

Hyde Park Bar & Grill

4206 Duval St, Austin, TX 78751

While it can be overshadowed by the area's sprouting gastropubs and trendy wine bars, Hyde Park Bar & Grill's retro wood panel interior is consistently full to the brim with loyal collegiate folk, cozy couples and local neighbors looking for a hearty meal at quite the decent price point.

Quality Seafood Market

5621 Airport Blvd, Austin, TX 78751

It's a relatively bare-boned operation here at Quality Seafood, yet but swarms of people swear by this part market, part sit-down cantina for their lunchtime requisites.

Mothers Cafe & Garden

4215 Duval St, Austin, TX 78751

A renowned destination for hungry carnivores and veggie loves alike, the large booths and sounds of clinking flatware give the ambience of a well-established diner with the fresh fare of a cafe.

Phara's Mediterranean Cuisine

111 E. N Loop, Austin, TX 78751

Owned by a former local belly dancer, Phara's Mediterranean brings Middle Eastern to Hyde Park with generously portioned family-style entrees, a hookah patio and live entertainment.


1625 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78704

As seen with the diminutive stone hut near Zilker, Daily Juice does "Old Austin" to a tee. This Hyde Park outpost on Duval is no different; locals love the one-stop shop convenience for earthy kombuchas and microbiotic vegan fare.

Galaxy Cafe

4700 W Guadalupe, Austin, TX 78751

Maintaining the South Austin favorite's signature casual counter service and retro decor, the vibe at Hyde Park's Galaxy Cafe fits perfectly alongside its Triangle counterparts.
