I love the hipster ambience of this place, the artsy garden where you wait for a table, and the outstanding artwork throughout the restaurant. The humus appetizer with cucumber, tomato and whole wheat points was perfect and delicious. The kale salad with shaved beets, pumpkin seeds and apple was excellent. I requested the dressing on the side. The "veggin' out"... More

We went here twice while in Austin we loved it so much. Great healthy breakfast options and a quirky atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and the wait isn't long. They even have baked goods and coffee you can grab why you wait.

It's not easy to describe this eclectic cafe. From the great food to the funky atmosphere this place is a must visit for anyone in the Austin area. Not a vegetarian... so what? Everyone will find something delicious on the menu. I had the community omelet special with spinach and cheese. Very fresh and tasty, plus a part of my... More

Surprisingly there are not a lot of Vegan/Vegetarian restaurants in austin. This one has been around for many years but it was our first time trying it. Twas good! My wife had the spaghetti squash dish. I have the grilled cheese with lots added. Service was good. They have local beers too. Give it a try.

My wife and I love Bouldin Creek Cafe. This is a great place to bring vegan and non vegans as they have a pretty big menu and everything tastes great! As a gluten free vegan I usually get the veg plate where I can mix and match different things. By the end of the meal I am stuffed and happy!... More

We got here when it just opened and were seated immediately. I really enjoyed looking at the artwork on the walls and all of them were for sale! I got the Renedict and my boyfriend got an omelet that came with two sides. The food was fresh and they had plenty of healthy options on the menu. As it got... More

This place is almost always busy in the morning on the weekends. I enjoy that it kind of has that dive feel to it. The food was tasty with options for vegetarians and vegans. The coffee and tea options all sounded very interesting. My table tried a few. The Creek Tweak was the best.

This place is a gem, even if you aren't vegetarian! Great atmosphere & delicious food with tons to choose from. The staff is friendly, and the food comes out pretty quickly. The chickpea salad sandwich is unreal, and the hummus sandwich is delicious as well. Don't miss out on the miso ginger dressing for your side salad :)

Thank Lyndsay M
