Had dinner there. Terrific selection. Solid wine and beer offerings of local micro brews. Terrific menu. I had Asian Chicken salad. It was very good. Specials looked awesome. Reminded me of a Whole Foods on steroids with a restaurant. Live music on a gorgeous evening was a nice touch.

Central Market-North is consistently excellent in the selection and preparation of their food. The dishes (particularly the nightly specials) are imaginative and everything is made with the freshest and best-tasting ingredients. I have dined here for breakfast, lunch and dinner; always try to make it to Central Market at least once during my trips to Austin!

What a great store! I loved the local vibe and the fact they also carry HE'S products (the other local store). They have an amazing variety in every product category. The selection of beer & wine was quite impressive. Produce area was beautiful. Do stop by.

This place is a bit of a mixture. The food is pretty good, if a bit odd. The indoor seating area is poor - decor, ambiance - & the outside eating area looked pretty good. Definitely worth a try.

Central market is a supermarket very similar to a wholefoods but they have a restaurant / outdoor sitting area with a kids playground! This is amazing for a chill, family lunch on a weekend. They had live music when I visited . You can buy a bottle of wine/ champagne take it outside with you and drink as you please... More

I go here more often than I like for many reasons. Meet-ups with college and when kids were little, the playground or to wait for mom's medical appointments next door. I love shopping here but it's food is hit or miss. However certain things aren't bad. Their burgers and fries or chicken sandwiches can't be done too wrong. One time... More

As a former Austinite, I am very familiar with dining options in the city. I was in town for my son's wedding. My extended family has varied dining demands ranging from gluten free, low carb, low salt, bland, spicy, etc. I chose Central Market because everyone could get what they want. If the Cafe did not have what my family... More

Great market that carries everything. Too easy to spend money there. We ended up eating at the cafe there and really enjoyed our meal. You can also buy food from the market and take it out to the cafe patio to enjoy.

We got salad from the salad bar and gumbo from the soup bar. The gumbo is packed with a tantalizing mixture of yummy spices, flavor and so many good ingredients. It makes for a tasty and reasonable lunch.
