$2.95/cakeball. Small but flavorful however limited variety. Ordered 4: Italian Cream, Salted Caramel, Carrot and Vanilla Bean. Starbucks are bigger and better. Price break at 6 - glad i didn't bite on the offer. Non-dessert foods/menu was nice so might try that next time. Clean, bright restaurant in busy corner of the Domain. Located next to Zara so kid traffic... More

High School besties all met up for a nice little lunch - but the servings were all huge! I had the Texas Cuban sandwich, and it was delicious. My friends all loved their entrees, too. One had the Cast Iron SW Chili, another the Grilled RedFish Tacos, and the last had the Truffled Goat Cheese and Bacon Panini. Don't those... More

I was amazed to find such good "comfort" food in a Domain restaurant! The place was beyond terrific. Great cocktails, great cake balls and great food that could almost meet soul food standards. We have the absolute best crab cakes here on the east coast so I only tried their's to play food critic. I had to tip the chef... More

Copper is new since we were last in Austin (next door to Macy's in the Domain). Although cheeses and desserts are featured, this is a full service restaurant with some really nice dinner dishes on the menu, and reasonably priced. We started with a cheese sampler tray for the table, which was plenty for our group of 7 to taste... More

In the Domain Area and need a dessert? Try the bakery attached to Golden...AWESOME! It was hard to choose from all the flavors and from what the guests said, everyone who had one was enjoying each morsel!

The place is super elegant and well located Service is ok, whenever they are staffed, which seems rare. Food is not great- beautifully crafted but not great taste. Price is not attractive for what you get. I went there twice, once to check the place out, then to give it a second chance. It replaced Chocolato, which was a great,... More

I can't speak for anything else but their Cake Balls. My husband and I were walking around the Domain one night and decided to give this place a shot for dessert. We were both disappointed with the cake balls. We tried a few different flavors and felt they all lacked flavor. One would think that cake balls that cost almost... More

Love this menu packed with great salads and delicious desserts. You must try the fried goat cheese balls and grab some cake balls for the road! The crab salad was great.

Went after shopping and enjoyed down home deviled eggs, grilled cheese & tomato bisque, and wonderful peppers-all half off for happy hour! Had "German Chocolate " cake pops that were mostly chocolate. Drinks were good, ambiance casual & service outstanding.

After a casual afternoon of shopping at The Domain, we 2 decided we were hungry for a late afternoon light lunch. We happened to come upon this restaurant, which also advertised desserts. Sat down at a side table along the left-side wall. Wait service was initially slow, however, once we selected our flavored-iced coffees and 2 vegetarian menu items, service... More
