A weird, hip cafÃ© with happy hour ranging from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.!
Homey, welcoming & yummy are the words that come to mind when describing this American grill. An absolute must is their buttermilk fries.
A French gastropub, dude-style: Hopfields may serve pretty food, but that doesn't mean its girly. This craft beer-filled bar is refreshingly gender-neutral, with an unfussy (but delish) food menu, and decor that relies on burlap, wooden benches, and steampunk light fixtures. I'm finding myself wander in more and more, taking advantage not only of the cheese board, but the intimate patio out back.

You can come for the food and drink but the real prize here is the view of Lake Austin. All of the specialty drinks can be made frozen.

I love this place. Maybe it's because it has endured, like me. Since 71 it's still one of my favorite Austin places.

Thumbs up for the food, atmosphere, and awesome beer list. The frites are a must and the ratatouille is decadently buttery.

Spider House. Good ol' Spider House. Every time I say I've grown out of it, I come crawling back, drinking or coffee-ing or laptoping. There's an eternal Summer of Love vibe here that always beckons my return. Try the Sam-I-Am-Wich, a shockingly good lunch that involves a croissant, basil pecan pesto eggs, and a slice of hot honeyed ham.… read more
