Hidden away, sort of, in a renovated old house in Austin's "lady streets" (Elizabeth, Mary, Annie, Johanna Streets...) and off on First Street rather than South Congress, Elizabeth Street cafe is worth looking for. The agenda is Vietnamese with appropriate French touches, the vibe is...More

Good food, but not phenomenal. Cute place and great outdoor setting. Excellent waiter. Bahn Mi house special was nothing special and barely any meat on it for $9. Bun (vermicelli bowls) -- just so-so meat on mine. Spouse has had a better Bahn Mi at...More
