I get so many emails asking about my favorite places to eat and drink in Austin. It used to be pretty easy to make a list for people from out-of-town, but in the past couple of years Austin has really become a top notch food city. The list of restaurants to hit is becoming endless, so today I’m narrowing it down to just a few of my favorites and when (and with whom) I would go.

Every picture on this post is making my hungry. Great places to review
Perla’s is one of our faves! From soups to mains, they hit it out of the park errytime! 😉
I’m a former Austinite now living far away, and this post made me want to go visit and eat. I miss so many of these places – especially Bouldin Creek, Elizabeth Street, Taco Deli (!!!), and Contigo. Summer nights at Contigo are amazing!
I really loved tacos and I can recommend Taco Deli. It’s my favourite restaurant in Austin
Very nice post!
All of these places sound amazing! I’ve bookmarked them for my next trip!
Ohhh I don’t know. I would definitely put Sway on the list. Especially for dinner with friends, date night, or dinner with parents!
you’re right – I really love Sway!
I love the aesthetic of that cafe. The blue tiles are gorgeous!
