We stopped in here for an early dinner. I was not very hungry so I had the cheese soup, a glass of wine and we split a piece of the chocolate cake. My daughter also had the French appetizer that I can't pronounce (it was very good). The cheese soup was yummy, but the chocolate cake was NOT that great!... More

My friend Dustin Woodward took me there for lunch on January 19th. The cafe is located inside the beautiful Driskill Hyatt hotel downtown Austin and is very unique place for a lunch meeting. The food was amazing, I had the best quiche ever! Also we had the honor to meet the Chef Troy Knapp and introduce our Castello Monte Vibiano... More

The restaurant is gorgeous, good attention to detail and clean. We were seated immediately and service was prompt. The food was delicious...my 17 yr old ranked it in the top... More

Bread pudding French toast was over the top decadent as was the Texas pecan waffle. Told ourselves the berries, bananas & nuts made it a healthy breakfast. Worth it just to see the lobby of the Driskill Hotel - built in 1886.

Ate here on two occasions, lunch and breakfast. For lunch I ordered the Driskill Burger, grass fed beef burger, onion jam, and in house Brioche Bun! Delicious! Average price, 15.00 with soft drink. Excellent service! Austin American Breakfast, scrambled eggs (excellent!), bacon, country potatoes and in house baked bread with sunflower seeds baked into the crust (delicious!) and in house...

Minimal wait for party of 6 on weekend. Excellent wait staff with manager on site and engaged. Varied selection of menu items. Breakfast and Lunch menu options. Several plate breakfasts around $12-$13 range. Standard fare likes eggs Benedict plus egg dishes with a Texas twist. Fresh coffee. Newspaper available.

My wife and I have been here multiple times and have stayed in the Driskill Hotel (inside which this is located). It is decorated very nicely, the staff are very kind, and the dessert is creative and delicious. You will pay more here than at other places, but as a special occasion spot for a good dessert, it would be... More

I probably had the best steak-n-eggs here. I mean perfectly cooked, everything seasoned just right.... and the biscuit warm with a lil crisp on the edge. I'm telling you this is a MUST-TRY type of place. I will be back. Go Austin.
