1401 S Congress Ave
A favorite place for coffee! There's a full TOMS store inside too. They have really comfortable seating inside and tons of tables and chairs out. Try an iced vanilla coriander latte or hibiscus tea ?
Banger's Sausage House and Beer Garden
79 Rainey St
Love the food here! So amazing! And, yes, that's Justin Bieber. He did a small show for a few hundred people at SXSW. Beer is great. I even have a tattoo of their logo! Free to anyone who wants one.
Home Slice Pizza
1415 S Congress Ave
Austinites know that south Congress is known for it's amazing vintage stores, boutiques, and food along with an awesome view. If you're ever in the area and want pizza Home Slice is your place to go!
4200 N Lamar Blvd
This is a bit out of the way from Downtown ATX but worth the time to take dig in to the Mexico City taco. Also try the tortilla chips with white queso. It's as creamy as a chowder soup. Very good!
1700 S Lamar Blvd
Butter coffee, bone broth, paleo food to go set on a little hill top container. Picnik has it's loyal regulars and for good reason: healthy, delicious food and drinks please all.
Mandola's Italian Market
4700 W Guadalupe St
Want to feel like you're part of a big Italian family? Dine on homemade hearty meals & a large selection of Italian desserts or gelato. Large portions, friendly staff and Italian mini-grocer.
Micklethwait Craft Meats
1309 Rosewood Ave
Quintessentially ATX, so ATX it's hidden from the street; it's that unassuming. This place serves a perfect brisket, succulent with crispy edges and a perfect smoke ring. Closed Mondays!
600 N Lamar Blvd
Cute and nostalgic, 24 Diner is delicious and has a great menu, including breakfast all day and a large selection of alcohol. I suggest the chicken and waffle. Head to Waterloo next door for more fun!
1411 E 7th St
Good music, great cocktails.
2529 S Lamar Blvd
Maria's Taco Xpress will fill you with crafty and delicious tacos in about 20 minutes no matter how packed the restaurant may be. I would highly suggest the margaritas as well.
1505 Town Creek Dr
Whether buzzing at their comedy events every Wednesday night or hungover building your own Bloody Mary on Sundays, Buzz Mill's Hibiscus ice tea is my go-to. Talk about refreshing!
1417 S 1st St
Shareable small plates of Thai with a modern twist. Nice outdoor seating area. Moderately priced, but worth every penny in flavor. Loved the satay (pictured), tiger cry, and fried rice.
2525 W Anderson Ln
Sweet toast topped with condensed milk and strawberry. Can't go wrong with this.
The Oasis on Lake Travis
6550 Comanche Trl
The Oasis is a fab restaurant that boasts a spectacular view of Lake Travis, but I go there for the drinks! The bartender makes a mean piña colada & there are little couches on the patio to relax on!
4807 Airport Blvd
Awesome new tapas place on the up and coming Airport Blvd restaurant row. Super cute indoor/outdoor seating and great food and service. Great place for friends or a date night location.
Mozart's Coffee Roasters
3825 Lake Austin Blvd
Mozart's is a great place to go, but mainly for its scenic ambience, which includes gorgeous sunsets. During Christmas they put on one of the biggest light shows in Austin. Very family friendly.
206 Colorado St
Barchi has the most amazing reverse happy hour! The service and the food are fantastic
Kerbey Lane Cafe
4301 W William Cannon Dr
Paris Texas is where it's at, and there's no denying it!
3825 Lake Austin Blvd
Awesome location to eat your Tex-mex/ Polynesian right on the lake. Be sure to have a drink or two and enjoy the awesome chips and salsa!
8557 Research Blvd
Not just great Ramen, but authentic Japanese candy finds and local drinks. Love the original location; now also S Lamar.
