If you have not been to this coffee shop, then you have definitely been missing out. This is simply a great place to have a terrific, inexpensive meal. With New York flair and flavor tempting you, you are destined to become a regular. The delicious bagels, a breakfast favorite, are made fresh daily. When turned into a sandwich, they lead the menu at lunch as well. Make sure you have a nice, hot cup of coffee to get your morning going.
The decor at Taste of Texas is rustic cowboy with an ambiance of Southern hospitality. The focus is primarily on beef. Those who are not squeamish are even invited to cut their own steak as thick as they like. Crisp salads and buttery baked potatoes are served alongside your favorite cut. The menu also offers burgers, sandwiches and seafood and chicken delicacies.
The interior theme of this charming cafe is decorated in memory of a dog named Barnaby (may he rest in peace). The little dog bones adorning the walls certainly make excellent conversation pieces. Bring along family and friends for this enjoyable experience. The menu offers a wide range of items that might make it difficult to choose. A good old-fashioned hamburger with French fries is always an excellent choice. If you want something lighter, try one of the delicious (and huge) salads. Talk your friends into sharing with you because you will want to leave room for one of the delicious desserts, such as the carrot cake or apple pie.
Vintage photographs of family members provide a charming ambiance. Due in part to the location, this restaurant enjoys a great deal of popularity with artists and business people alike. Outdoor seating is tempting in fair weather. Traditional Tex-Mex dominates the menu, but an unusual alternative is available in the form of Mollejitas, or sweetbreads. Of course, they are not for the faint of heart, so order with caution and enjoy. Finish off your meal with some sopapillas or flan.
Onion Creek is the ultimate neighborhood hangout with a little something for everyone, regardless of the time of day. Need some homemade waffles with fresh fruit and coffee to start your day right? Maybe an O.C. Poboy to get you through the afternoon? Or the Frito Pie, a cold beer on tap, and the game on the tube for dinner to make everything right with the world? Don't worry if you think you missed Happy Hour—it goes until 11p on Monday nights.
If you hit it just right, you won't have to wait in line long at this eatery where the Green Eggs & Ham are almost as popular as their fried Wings & Waffle topped with fresh strawberries. Even if you end up in line, it seems to move fast as conversations sprout up between neighbors, regulars, and even out-of-towners who make the drive in to get their fix.
Daily Donuts is one of those routine stops en route to work or school. It's pleasantly as no frills as breakfast joints get--no hassle, the line moves quickly, and both food and drink are always hot. For merely a couple bucks and a couple minutes, start your day off with a cup of steaming gourmet joe to go, and gooey sweet donuts. Their chocolate iced are wonderful. Grab a dozen for your morning meeting or class. They also do your standard Texas Kolaches--can't go wrong with either Sausage and Cheese or Ham and Cheese. Either makes ideal eating-in-morning-traffic food. -Adam Rosen
