The first thing you notice while approaching Gonzo Juice is a giant rooster head perched atop a vintage 1949 trailer, which flashes multicolored feathers painted on its sides. The gargantuan bird and his towering coxcomb cast an imposing shadow over Gonzo's wooden picnic tables and grassy lawn. The food hut's eccentric façade hints at what to expect on its menu: either an inventive spin on classic American cuisine or an omelet made out of the world's largest rooster egg. Gonzo's chefs festoon made-to-order hot sandwiches, wraps, and salads with a variety of unique, all natural ingredients including slow-braised meats, tangy carrot slaw, fruit jam, and hawaiian rolls. Earning the spotlight of 365 Things to Do in Austin, Gonzo's freshly squeezed juices catch taste buds by surprise with a tasty blend of unexpected flavors such as ginger and jalapeño.
Kick Butt's ebullient owner Thomas Gohring—who also owns and operates a tai chi and kung fu dojo—shatters your expectations of tree-bark coffee and stone-hard scones like a martial-arts master pulverizes a stack of cinderblocks by using only the finest Arabica beans grown and raised at Earth's loftiest altitudes. Start the midnight off right with a double espresso ($1.85), a mint mocha (regular for $3.90), or a Kung Fu coffee with Irish crème ($6). If you'd rather mellow than jolt, regular smoothies start at $3.85, and hot chocolate starts at $2.40. Since breakfast is the most important meal for any day of side-scrolling action/adventure, pick up an order of actual throwing stars ($3) with your croissant ($1.85) or a pair of nun-chucks ($12) with your cranberry muffin ($1.85). For a more potent power-up before facing the level boss, walk over a kick n' chicken samich ($6), a generous portion of chicken karate-chopped by Chuck Norris (hence its lack of bones) on a butter croissant topped with habanera and jalapeno peppers. Check out the full menu here.

The newly renovated Randy Loren's Dolce Vita Ristorante infuses classic Italian dishes with a love of music that permeates the classic atmosphere. As diners enjoy plates of lightly breaded veal and parmesan-encrusted tilapia, on Fridays and Saturdays performers take to the dining room’s elevated stage to coax melodies from a white grand piano sitting under a disco ball and colorful lights. In addition, trimming decorated like piano keys accentuates the wooden bar, whose array of liquor and wine bottles would produce its own grand symphony if it were ever hit with a bunch of tiny pebbles.
