Horriable Service – Hi. I have been to this place twice and I will NEVER go back. The first time I went with my boss, and they took about 45 minutes to bring us a simple turkey sandwich and a salad. Nothing fancy that should have taken 45 minutes. The next time, we had someone bringing lunch to our office, so she called it in and when she got there she almosted waited 40 minutes for the order. We get an hour lunch and have never had this problem anywhere else. This was horriable. Our visitor was not only an hour late, we had to re-schedule our meeting, and eat throught the rest of our day cause we had waited during our whole lunch. Horriable. I've hear this complaint many other times as well.
poor service for a large group – We came here with a group of about 12 people, and while there were only a max of 3 other tables being served, this apparently completely overwhelmed them. The server spilled red wine on our friend's shirt, forgot to bring out the salad that came out with a steak, and entrees weren't brought out anywhere near the same time. Additionally, they let us know that one of our friend's meal was prepared incorrectly, so she had to wait while the rest of us ate. While they did give our friend $30 cash to replace the shirt and didn't charge her for her meal or any of the drinks she had ordered, this still doesn't excuse the wait staff from the fact that we were at a "classy" place and good service is naturally expected. Aside from spilling shirt staining beverages and forgetting to bring food and screwing up people's orders, another down side is the fact that this place ran out of certain food and drink items. Is it just me or should a restaurant be prepared for a dinner rush? On another note, while dining out at this place we heard screaming and yelling coming from the kitchen. Wait staff gone wild video or... inappropriate? You be the judge.
Most of the food was decent but not worth the price, but definitely avoid the jambalaya wrap. The pasta quandary dish was alright. Stay away from the Reuben, the bread is hard and stale. It really is luck of the draw with this place as far as dishes go. Be brave. At least the cheesecake was good :)
Best Restaurant Ever. – Period. Seriously. I heard they are getting a mixed beverage license in march....Best restaurant in Lakeway Period. Seriously.
It's about time! – It so about time we had a good breakfast place out here in Lakeway. I've been coming to Cafe C since they opened. As typical with new restaraunts the seem a little clumsy at first but they have definitly found there groove. ;-)
I think I have had about everthing on the breakfast menu especially the San Tropez Scramble, which I think I've now about 20 times. (is that an addiction?)
Staff and owner are very friendly. Nice atmosphere. I'm very excited about dinner starting up.
Best salads – They have 3 salads that are to die for,but my favorite is the spinach salad with sundried tomatoes, mushrooms, pine nuts, and feta cheese, with some kind of balsamic vinegar dressing.It is a must try!
chicken foccacia is tha bomb!! – this cafe is awesome the food is even better. great atmosphere with friendly people working there
makes me want to go back everydaqy either for breakfast or lunch and dinner im told is coming soon!!
Intresting Menu – The menu is not your average menu for the area with a few to become seriously infamous. The croissants were delicious and the wait staff is very friendly.
I hope they do well.
garlic fries... – I loved my Chicken Focaccia Sangwich and i ordered it with garlic fries, which ive never had b4. SOOO GOOD!!!
Wow, what a change.... – Until recently there has been very few breakfast spots in Lakeway as we all know. I stumbled on this restaurant a few weeks ago and the food is incredible! The service has improved dramatically with the addition of table service in the past few weeks too. You gotta check this place out!
