Really good coffee and cool atmosphere. All of the baristas are super nice & there was a DJ playing records while we were there. Lots of room to sit out back too - feels like a hidden forest ?

VH is one of my go-to coffee shops on the Eastside. It's a cozy place, great for work or study time. Plus, I love their lavender latte!!

The indoor/outdoor bar at the new Torchy's location at Mueller is great for a beer and some chips and queso. Skip the counter service and sit at the bar if you want to take your time to order.

Micheladas are a favorite of mine -- and I enjoy them the most at Takoba, a wonderful Mexican restaurant. Tomato juice with spices (mixed with beer) will make you rethink your go-to Bloody Mary order.

Best ramen in Austin! And so many flavors of mochi ice cream!
7309 McNeil Dr
Daily happy hour specials on drinks, $2 beers and super cheap cocktails. The bar looks grungy on the outside but is a giant family of friends on the inside. Worth walking into just for laughs.
