Tucked away in North Austin, this delightful bistro features Southern comfort foods and American favorites. The delectable weekend brunch features a creme brûlée French toast so good you'll want it for breakfast and dinner.
Banger's Austin is one of the best dog-friendly spots in Austin with a large tap wall (over 100 brews on tap), incredible sausage selection and live music. Get the kitchen sink, it is their version of beef tongue hash covered with two fried eggs, side of creamy grits, bacon steak, spicy sausage and country ham. And Sunday brunch wouldn’t be the same without a Manmosa - one liter of champagne with a splash of orange juice.

The croque madame is smothered with bechamel sauce and topped with a sunny side up egg, and the shrimp and grits is the perfect bowl of comfort for Sunday mornings. Have a sweet tooth? Order the beignets, they're made from scratch and covered with a mountain of powdered sugar!
The Steeping Room
Recently named one of the ten great places to curl up with a cup of tea, The Steeping Room offers specialty teas, food and designer tea ware.

Remodeled after Contigo Ranch in South Texas, Contigo Austin serves up high quality, reasonably priced tavern-style dishes in an easygoing, casual atmosphere.
