Every few months or so, I get together with a group of friends for lunch and conversation. We recently met at Eastside Cafe for Saturday brunch. Seated in one of the Eastside Cafe’s cozy rooms in the front of the old house, we were presented with lots of tasty choices...

The beef and goat cheese enchiladas were great, but could have used one more on the plate, plus a little more goat cheese.

Incredible. If you haven't had the Blue Plate Special, you haven't lived. Just ask Elaine.

You can't go wrong with the grilled meatloaf! The true Texas lime pie was perfect.
by Alma C.
If you leave without eating the meatloaf, ask yourself why you even got out of bed this morning. DO IT!

Smoked salmon ravioli is extremely rich and decadent. Do it!

Get the baked brie appetizer with the apple chutney. Always a winner.
The food here is always fresh and delicious but can be a little pricey. If you're pinching pennies grab a blue plate special or a bowl of soup.

The food was fine. Too much whipped cream on the Belgian waffle for my taste. The major drawback was waiting for the food and then the check. If you're not in a hurry, things will be fine.

Fresh & Delicious food! One of our favorite dinner spots in Austin. Need I say more? You should also request Taylor as your server, she's awesome.

2 hour wait for Easter brunch! Heading across the street to Hoovers. Darn, I love Eastside Cafe.

EĂ±chilada and bugers for the veggies. Amazing! Fries and pickles. Key lime has the best crust I've ever tasted.

Try the Roasted Meatloaf With Bacon Tomato Sauce And Broccoli With Lemon Butter - Excellent dish. The sauce makes it for sure!!! (via @Foodspotting)

Fresh & healthy! Great beer selection too!
by Christopher J.
Lots of great food from their onsite garden. Also, if the acorn squash is available, don't hesitate to get it. It's the cat's pajamas.

Drive by to check out the owners HausBar Farms (about a five minute drive away), and there you will see where the real majority of the eggs and produce come from.

Hands down, without doubt, the best place to eat in Austin. With all the veggies grown right out back, and amazing recipes to boot, you can't beat Eastside.

My friends uncle is the cook, so anytime you enjoy your food be sure to let him know!

the wild mushroom crepes and smoked salmon ravioli are delicious with the garlic mashed potatoes on the side. the ham and cheese soup is really thick and creamy... great choice.

Fresh, organic, delicious food! Simple and decadent.
vegetables are the key - especially the acorn squash (via Scoville)

â€śSeveral of my all-time favorite pasta dishes come from East Side CafĂ©. I suggest the smoked salmon ravioli or any pasta special they have for the day.â€ť says Tina Poe, of the Me and Mister Bee blog.
This East side spot features their own vegetables, herbs and flowers as much as possible â€” and has been doing so for the almost the past 30 years. A great place to take your parents. [Eater 38 Member]
