Its hard to complain about something that tastes so great once it hits your lips! The Bouldin Creek Cafe certainly was the surprise of my time in Austin!
Now first, the slightly bad news- parking sucks here. Traditionally, this location had four parking spots at the old location across the street. Here, its slightly better with a handful in front on the street, and about a dozen or so within the back. Per the management, its easier to park on South 1st Street, or further along within the alley. Just be mindful of residential areas & other small businesses.
The food- WOW! I had the misconception that most vegan restaurants had food that tasted really bland, and looked unappealing. Not here. The Joe's Smokin' Omelette had a good portion of spinach & cheese that cured any hunger pains, yet the homemade pesto was what really made the meal really exceptional. I mean, DAYUM! I wanted to take the pesto home and use it on my turkey & rye, as well as brush my teeth with it! That's how good it was.
Bouldin Creek Cafe's signature staple may be the blueberry cornbread. Now anyone can make this, yet Bouldin does a good job in not making it as hard as a brick, and not soft as a marshmallow either. Its just right. Add in some butter and syrup, and you are about to have a delectable dessert as your dining experience at any time of day.
Breakfast is available all day, and alcohol from beer & wine is served here as well. I'm uncertain if spirits are available, yet I wouldn't be surprised if they are. Customer service is really good with attentive (as well as attractive) servers that make insightful recommendations.
FYI, this place stays busy nearly all the time, meaning that it is loud AF inside. There is outdoor seating available in a light mist, yet do you really want to eat outdoors during day hours in Texas? Its up to you. The bathroom art is actually "interesting", yet this is what makes Austin unique.
Welcome to some of Austin's best eating!
