Mmmm the most delicious sweets in Hyde Park! Love the holiday cookies and cake selection!
When I lived in Hyde Park, Quack's was my little home-away-from-home. When I had a bad day, I sidled up to the display case and pointed weakly at the Salty Oat Cookies. "One of those?" I sniffled. When I needed a last-minute birthday present, I picked up a box of mustache cookies. A holiday party? Rosemary Apple Pie. See, Quack's is like your curmudgeonly but endearing aunt: A little tart, a little "oh, YOU again," but always, but always ready for you with an armful of goodies. And that's the best kind of aunt there is.

As renowned for its sugar-coated cinnamon rolls and muffins as it is for its anything goes vibe, this bakery maintains a distinctive Summer of Love-hangover atmosphere. The diverse clientele at this Hyde Park neighborhood institution includes not only students and musicians, but also young adults and families. Check out Quack's soups, espresso shakes and a wide array of organic juices.
Mmm good coffee – I really like Quacks! The parking can be a little difficult sometimes, but it's worth it. If you're looking for a chance to try this place out, just look at the back of your HEB receipt - I got a coupon for 75c off a coffee and a muffin, which was how I found the place in the first place! You won't be disappointed.... however, you may want to pass on the bran muffin - it's not as good as the regular muffins. Oh, and the coffee is delicious :)
heaven in hyde park – I've been coming to Quack's regularly for the past four years that I've lived in Austin. I've tried just about everything on the pastry menu and it's always been delectable! I especially recommend the brownies and the eclairs. It's also a great atmosphere to study for a few hours. If only they still had the bottomless cup of coffee...
Yummy – Their Key Lime Pie is the best that I have ever had. It is perfect, but you have to buy it while you can. They tend to disappear fast. All of their pies and cakes are good though. I also like their cookies. My favorite is the ginger crackle. It is really spicy and yummy. The atmosphere is nice too. It's got that tucked away in a neighborhood feel to it, and it is dog friendly. They have a little bowl with free doggy treats.
