Russell's is a good place for coffee or lunch (tasty chicken salad and soups). Parking can be a problem.

First visit but won't be the last one. The medium roast coffee is sooo good and the pastries are delicious.

The best place for a meeting or a visit with friends. Hot coffee, latte, cappuchino, and don't forget a scone or other delicious pastry. If you stay through lunch go for a Combo, your choice of two -- half a sandwich, tomato basil soup, or salad -- served with chips, salsa and a pickle spear.

The coffee here is as good as anywher and the bakery is excellent. Today I had a Schnecken (German sticky bun) with my Americano. Their schnecken is just as good as, or... More

Omelets, Migas, Chiliquilles, Croissant brekkie sandwich, Eggs Benedict and a few other breakfast items, along with a small assortment of bakery goods. Very good coffee. Very good service. Tough to park close at mealtimes in that whole 38th St area. I've honestly never eaten anything there but breakfast but as good as their breakfast selections are, lunch is probably an... More

Russell's Bakery has delicious Green Enchilada Soup and beautiful hand painted sugar cookies. The cream cheese carrot cake is the best in AUstin. If you need hand decorate sugar cookies for a special occasion, Russell's Bakery is the place!

Beautiful Easter sugar cookies for our Sunday dinner! I stopped in here on Saturday to pick up sugar cookies for our Easter dinner. The tulips, Easter bunnies, chicks and eggs were beautifully and expertly decorated. Our guests enjoyed the fresh cookies. What a conversation starter - thank you Russell's Bakery!

Great little place with wonderful lunch items and sweet treats! The sugar cookies are a family favorite. The chicken salad sandwich is amazing. But it's the crazy good pumpkin bread that we love.

First visit to this bakery today. 3 PM on a Saturday & the choice of baked goods in the display case was a little paltry. One entire bakery case was completely empty. I chose a scone, blueberry, & was disappointed by an overabundance of sugar on the top & how dry it was, even for a scone. No jam or... More
