This bakery is right down the street from my office, and truthfully, we all continue to visit way too much considering the negative consensus we all have about this bakery. To be brief, the food is sub-par. Sometimes a tasty sandwich comes out of the kitchen, but the pastries are all usually dry and reminiscent of a day-old bakery. We... More

My wife and I and a friend of ours returned to Sweetish Hill Bakery for lunch today. Like a familiar dependable friend, the young man serving my turkey sandwich assured me, as always, everything is made fesh daily - and it showed. My wife and our friend said their soups were delicious. And my little "extra" - a mocha muffin,... More

My monthly trips to Austin always include a stop or two at Sweetish Hill. A real bakery with wonderful treats for an indulgent breakfast or to bring to clients. Everything seems scratch made and is always fresh. Lunch is great especially for a business traveler. Freshly made soup and sandwiches....my favorites are the veggie sandwich, the ham and Brie panini... More

Stopped in at closing time and the ladies there were very nice and accomodating. Friendly, casual place. I really enjoyed the "black and white" cake, which was chocolate with cream cheese icing. Better than homemade.

The only bakery I've found with French baguettes. The carrot cake cupcake is to die for. Perfect consistency and just enough creamy frosting. They have seating area both inside and outside. Have everything from sandwiches to cakes. Service could be better but I'm willing to ignore that for their yummy sweet treats.

Really nice Cafe. Loved the coffee and the bagels, except they weren't bagels they were called something else. None the less they were delish and the service was great. Definitely go here if you are in the area.

We were in Austin for five days staying at a VRBO one block from this coffee shop. We liked it so much that we ate there all four mornings and one day for lunch. They make all of the pastries in the restaurant and it is so good that it is sold out by noon The coffee is great and... More

We stopped by here for dessert after a delicious meal at a restaurant next door. They had a nice variety of bakery items. While the black and white cupcake was excellent, I found the carrot cake cupcake to be more of a spice cake flavor. It lacked obvious carrot pieces and the pineapple, nuts and raisins you'd expect to find... More

I've been going to Sweetish Hill Bakery off and on for years. I like the simple atmosphere and the coffee. However it has disturbed me that lately their baked goods are dry. Seems like they might not be fresh. I was disappointed by what I bought. The cookie and muffins tasted like they were a day old or even more.... More
