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.
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.
