    This sunny French bistro is known for its patio and its mouthwatering tartines; it doesn't hurt that it's kid-friendly and serves a great breakfast, either. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    An early component of the East 11th Street renaissance, this is a restful, reliable spot for French-inspired snacks and light meals. The luscious, open-faced tartines are highly recommended. Read more

    The tartines aren't a sandwich, they are a crazy plate of 5 open faced sandwiches. Army feeding portions here.

    This lovely restaurant has been serving up French-inspired fare and tasty salads well before the strip started booming. Their huge, shaded patio out back is one of Austin's best. [Eater 38 Member]

    Just because Blue Dahlia is French doesn't mean it's too fancy for you! Try an open-faced sandwich - any of them. Their brownies are an enormous dessert with coffee beans.
