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.
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.
It’s three in the morning and you’re starving. Where do you eat? Here’s what’s open in Austin, from French bistro to sushi joints, and a 24-hour restaurant.
Located right in the middle of downtown, Barchi Sushi is the perfect spot for late night dining. The reverse happy hour starts at 10pm and ends at 1:30am with super discounted sushi and drinks.
Order a couple pieces of nigiri (starting as low as $1.50), agedashi tofu, and bloody sake mary.
Justine’s Brasserie serves up high-class French comfort food until 2 am in a casual, eclectic vibe. The menu includes classic French favorites like steak and frites, Coq au Vin with Ratatouille and a straight-up Royale with cheese. Grab a seat at the tiny marble-topped tables and start with the charcuterie plate featuring a trio of homemade pates and potted meats.
East Side King
Thirsty and have the munchies? Stop by East Side King at The Liberty for Asian street snacks. The Thai Chicken Karaage with deep-fried chicken thigh, sweet-spicy sauce, fresh basil, cilantro mint and onion is out of this world. Don’t forget about Paul Qui’s famous Brussels Sprouts salad with deep-fried roasted beets, kewpie mayo, schichimi togarashi and green onion.
Feeling hungry at 3pm? 3am? 24 Diner is open 24 hours serving up elevated comfort food like homemade meatloaf with bacon-braised greens, chicken and waffles, and some of the best mac n’ cheese in town.
