Like many filmmakers, The Coen Brothers are big fans of shooting in and around Texas; No Country for Old Men was filmed in West Texas and True Grit and Blood Simple were shot in Austin. You might spot The Old Pecan St. Cafe in Blood Simple; the Sixth street, brick-laden establishment acted as both Abby's (Frances McDormand) apartment and where the agita-inducing finale took place. They've since cleaned up the blood and Old Pecan Street Cafe is now an eatery and event space. If you see M. Emmet Walsh roaming the halls, run or grab your butter knife!

Devotees keeping body and soul together – Old Pecan Cafe leads me there by name alone, and captivating aromatic blends of baked goods and coffee drew me in just passing by. When it's time for dining, down-to-earth comfort nestled between old world charm, and but of course palatable options for a dream come true. Their crepes a savory delight with warm banana filing, just a trace of rum with almonds, not pecans, sprinkled just so, and wouldn't a thick gooey chocolate sauce scribbled across it all really complete the divine experience? Overall, stimulating flavors and surprising appetizers (any shrimp would be proud wearing this seasoning) all with little fanfare just good eating.

Great Restaurant! – Great food, service and atmosphere. Charming old interior - perfect place to bring visitors although I will be going there a lot myself in between visits.

Despite its location on Austin's bustling Sixth Street, an Old World feeling prevails at the Old Pecan Street Cafe. – In Short
Lunches at the historical, turn-of-the-century location, which previously housed a hardware store, draw the downtown business crowd, while dinner pulls in well-heeled diners seeking a sophisticated, fine-dining experience in a hushed, unhurried atmosphere. Specials include thick char-broiled Texas steaks as well as several stuffed chicken dishes. The restaurant's extensive wine list has won accolades from many a connoisseur, and the aromatic in-house bakery turns out warm breads and luscious pastries on order.

Save room for dessert – Popped in the other day with friends for a quick bite. I tried the Chicken Poppicotti. Delicious. Brochettes Orleans? Mouthwatering. The only bad thing is that you will fill up on the delicious honey-wheat bread. But you must make room for the Crepes with bananas. Or...you can go to heaven with the Pecan Pie. The atmosphere is so nice and relaxed and the street life just filters by. Worthwhile.

Very Average – I was sorely disappointed with the Old Pecan Street Cafe. From the outside, it looks like a neat old place, and the building itself is. The service and the food, inside however, were quite a different story. Our waiter was slow, and when we asked him if a ceasar salad was available at dinner (instead of the house salad) he checked in the kitchen, then told us that would be fine. After a what seemed like a long time, he delivered the standard house salad, claiming not to know whether or not it was what we had ordered at all! The entrees were okay, although the steaks were severely undercooked (medium was more like raw). The desserts (I had the "fat chocolate cake") was really good, complete with freshly-whipped cream. Overall, I'd say don't bother with this place until they get either a new chef, new management, or (hopefully) both.

Heck-of-a-Brunch too! – The food has always been delicious and uniquely prepared! An ideal place to bring friends or family visiting Austin to start on your 6th street night on the town. Recently went to the Sunday brunch with cabaret singer and group seating. Lots of fun!
