Winter is officially over and we're now smack dab in the middle of prime patio season here in Austin. These are some of my favorite places to enjoy drinks outside.
Ables on the Lake | 3825 Lake Austin Blvd
You can’t beat the location, right on Lake Austin. Is it just me or do cocktails taste better when you're looking at a body of water? It’s a great spot to go for lunch as they offer a legendary Bloody Mary served with their signature garnish. They do a Bevo Tea that's super refreshing, and they also have happy hour Monday-Friday, 4-6 pm.
Easy Tiger | 709 E. 6th Street
They have a great location on 6th Street right along Waller Creek that creates a perfectly relaxing atmosphere. It feels like a Sunday Funday seven days a week here, with everyone mingling at their picnic tables or playing ping-pong. They also make some of the best baked goods in town, so I highly recommend their sandwiches and pretzels.
El Alma | 1025 Barton Springs Road
Mexican food and a killer patio. The patio is actually located on a deck above the restaurant, and it overlooks downtown and Butler Park. It would be criminal to go to a Mexican restaurant and not order a margarita, so I’d start with that, and then follow it up with some of their addicting sangria. Enjoy their happy hour daily from 3-6 pm.
Hotel San Jose | 1316 South Congress Ave
This seems to be one of those hidden gems that people often forget about. Their patio is located in their courtyard, next to their pool, and it’s a very chill atmosphere. Be advised that there's a limited food menu, so it’s not the place to go if you're hungry. However, if a cheese plate is what you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place. I always get one of their House Specialties as they're some of my favorite cocktails in Austin. The Tropical Sangria is light, refreshing and made for easy drinking, as is the Champassion and Tinto de Verano. I always feel as if I am on vacation when sipping cocktails in their courtyard.
Elizabeth Street Café | 1501 South First Street
Go for lunch and continue sipping cocktails into the afternoon. Everything I’ve had from here has been delicious, both food and drink. The Green Mango & Cucumber Salad may be one of my favorite salads in Austin, and no meal here is complete without at least one carafe of punch. The punches change seasonally, but are always unique and delicious.
We are spoiled for choice when it comes to dining in Austin. From local restaurants to grocery stores, there are countless delectable options. Even our eclectic collection of food trailers are dishing up gourmet eats at a reasonable price!But, taking kids out for a meal can sometimes seem like a chore. Will they behave? Is it easier to just stay home and eat cereal for dinner?Fortunately, there are plenty of places around town where you can grab a bite to eat and let the children run free! Here are a few of my family’s favorites:Midway Food Park | 1905 S. Capitol of Texas Hwy., AustinMidway is an outdoor park with seven food trucks, ranging from Dock & Roll Diner (seafood) to CoolHaus (ice cream sandwiches). The park has a festive carnival atmosphere, with carousel horses hanging from a tree, Christmas lights, a stage for live music, and brightly colored picnic tables with umbrellas. Kids love the colorful playscape (pictured above), rocks to climb, and the large fenced-in field strewn with balls. In fact, Midway is so entertaining for children, you may have a hard time getting yours to eat at all.Two things to note: 1. Go early, as food does sell out and lines get long. Parking also becomes scarce and visitors have to park on the grass. 2. Each food truck sets their own hours, so not all of the trucks are open at the same time. Check their individual Facebook pages for hours.The Salt Lick Round Rock | 3350 E Palm Valley Blvd, Round Rock | (512) 386-1044There is no disputing that the Driftwood location of The Salt Lick is worth the drive, but if you’re looking for quality barbecue a little further north, the Round Rock restaurant is a great alternative. Ribs and brisket and smoked turkey, oh my! Seating at picnic tables is casual and the outdoor playscape keeps antsy kids happy.Central Market | 4001 N Lamar Blvd, Austin | (512) 206-1000It may seem odd that one of our go-to dining destinations is a grocery store, but when it comes to relaxed family atmosphere, Central Market is tops. The cafe serves up delicious meals and dining on the patio with free live music Thursday to Sunday is always a treat. As a bonus, kids eat free on Tuesdays after 5 p.m. Children have a blast on the massive playscape, and can burn off a little steam in the neighboring field. Family walks to the duck pond after dinner are the icing on the cake.Whole Foods | 525 N Lamar Blvd, Austin | (512) 542-2200My kids can’t get enough of the flagship Whole Foods Market downtown. The awe-inspiring array of soup, salad, cookies and other miscellaneous food bars are something that you have to see to believe. My kids love crafting their own meals, one fresh roll or spoonful of lo mein at a time. The options are endless. With to-go meals in hand, we head up to tables on the rooftop plaza and let the kids enjoy the small wooden playscape.Southpark Meadows | 9300 S Interstate 35 Frontage Rd, AustinThis shopping center in South Austin has a large playscape flanked by several restaurants, so you have your choice of where to eat. Mama Fu’s, Jason’s Deli, Waterloo Ice House, and Amy’s Ice Creams - you can’t go wrong. Dine, play, let the kids get wet in the seasonal water bubblers, and delight in the occasional band playing on the stage in The Grove. It’s a great place to hang out as a family.Photo of Midway sign courtesy of Midway Food Park, photo of Coolhaus courtesy of Coolhaus, photo of Amy's Ice Creams courtesy of Brandon Bergara
I don’t know if Austinites like spending time in coffee shops or actually drinking coffee more. Whatever the case, we’re always thinking about the next place to go for a cup of jo. In many cases coffee shops serve as ‘offices’ for local small businesses. Even in the 105 degree summer heat we don’t miss a beat.
Mozarts |3825 Lake Austin Blvd.
This is probably one of the more iconic coffee shops in town as it sits overlooking Lake Austin. Thus, the atmosphere is calming, relaxing and easy on the eyes. The abundant seating on the deck is shaded by large trees and is the perfect place to work if you’re looking for an outdoor office for the day. They offer traditional coffee drinks as well as pastries. Dogs are also welcome on the deck.
Jo’s Coffee | 1300 South Congress Avenue
Jo’s on South Congress is probably most famous for their ‘i love you so much’ street art on the side of the building. It has become a bucket list photo op for tourists and locals alike. Aside from cool graffiti, they also serve a great cup of coffee, imagine that. The ‘iced turbo’ is a menu favorite, and they also offer sandwiches and baked goods. Outdoor seating only, so keep that in mind on rainy days or those 100+ degree summer days.
Flat Track Coffee | 913 E. Cesar Chavez Street
This is a hidden gem hidden just east of I-35. No bells and whistles, just a focus on great coffee. This is the type of place you grab a cup of joe and are on your way. The menu is limited but executed perfectly, and the crown jewel is probably their espresso. Don’t plan your next meeting here as they have very limited seating and no wi-fi. But for coffee connoisseurs, this place is a must try.
Café Medici | Various Locations
Really really great coffee. I like the downtown location as it has plenty of seating (two stories). It’s also fairly quiet, and the type of place you can go to to get stuff done. The Clarksville location is also great, slightly smaller, but located in one of my favorite little neighborhoods; it really has an awesome old Austin feel to it.
Curra’s | 614 East Oltorf Street
Curra’s (A Mexican restaurant famous for its avocado margaritas) might be the most odd ball selection on this list. However, if you're a fan of drip coffee, they have their own brew that pairs perfectly with their breakfast tacos. They also sell their coffee beans by the pound.
Houndstooth Coffee | Various Locations
This is one of those Austin coffee shops that has a cult-like following, and you can’t make a list of places to grab a cup in Austin without including Houndstooth. Maybe it’s the sleek, simple design, their friendly and knowledgeable baristas, or the simple fact that they just make fantastic coffee. You be the judge.
