Bistros provide the culinary perks of traveling without any of the language barriers that often lead patrons to inadvertently order their sleeves to be set on fire. Extinguish the chances of messing up your order with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of bistro fare at Annies Café & Bar.

The foodsmiths behind the culinary creations at Annies Café & Bar enlist the flavors of seasonal farm-to-market ingredients whenever possible. The dinner menu features an ethereal vegetable plate that arrives at tables sporting four to five different items every night ($14), depending on the produce available at the farmers market and the food pyramid's capricious definition of a vegetable. Free-range bistro chicken indulges in an oven-roasted tan before presenting itself to patrons ($14), and the sausage and fontina pizza sprinkles fresh oregano atop its pie ($12).

Midday diners, hungry after stripping a neighbor’s convertible of its upholstery and repurposing it into a leather jacket, can peruse a lunch menu that includes an array of sandwiches laden with meaty and meatless fillings ($6.25 each). Breakfast chefs heap substantial fare atop plates such as the brioche french toast, which swaddles taste buds within the embrace of warm maple syrup and fresh strawberries ($7.95).

Annies Cafe & Bar

An admiration of European-style bistros and sidewalk cafés inspired Love Nance and Sherry Jameson to open Apple Annies in 1982. Then in 2008, the longtime Austin-residents moved their lunchtime café to a new location, added breakfast and dinner to the menu, and renamed their quarter-century-old eatery Annies Cafe & Bar. The dinner menu’s rapid success, fueled by farm-to-market dishes such as farmer's-market vegetable platters and roasted free-range chicken, helped the brasserie earn acclaim from various local media outlets and one interstellar radio transmission.

Each morning, Annies Cafe & Bar lures early birds by wafting the aroma of fresh-baked baguettes out its large front doors. Around noon, made-to-order lunches, sandwiches, and salads from the convenient deli case make their way into the paws of businesspeople, while evening heralds gourmet dinners and specialty cocktails from the zinc-topped bar.

Customer Reviews

Excellent food, pleasant surroundings, delightful waitress. Do not be in a hurry for drinks or food, though, but well worth the wait.
