A culinary gem, Kiefer's Cafe and Catering in Austin is a hugely-popular spot for a flavorful menu. The reasonable prices allow guests to focus on what matters: the perfect quality.
Thanks to its outdoor seating, the restaurant is a fantastic option when the Hill Country weather is nice. Try to remember that business casual is the suggested attire. Also, though the overall price can be a bit on the low side, you won't be sacrificing any quality. In fact, you should be able to enjoy a good meal for $11 or $12, and can probably get in and out for $8 if you try.
For those who are interested, the robust menu features items that are gluten-free, healthy, low-fat, and vegetarian. Plus, it's been tabbed as a nice option for doing business and local cuisine, in addition to families with children and large groups. In addition to its convenient take-out menu, the restaurant even provides catering for events around town. Or, if you just want to stop by for a beverage, the restaurant has a pretty broad selection at its bar.
A reputable favorite for lunch, a trip to Kiefer's is definitely worthwhile. Don't worry about trying to find a spot on the street, as visitors to the restaurant do have access to a private parking lot nearby.
