Order a tartine and a bellini for a fresh meal, and try to sit out back to enjoy the atmosphere of this French bistro. If you sit inside, there's usually a guitar player inside and a cozy atmosphere.
What can I say. I feel like the place is mine. The food, the vibe, the location. Everything just feels good, looks good and tastes good. AND I get to hug the owner once is a while. If you haven’t made
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]
Fresh homemade frittatas (spinach and shallot pictured) in the outdoor garden seating is a wonderful way to spend a morning. Options change daily.
Great for cheese and wine with girl friends! Also, love the seared tuna nicoise salad. I always order that. Really pretty patio area out back.
The prosciutto tar tine....I suggest requesting goat cheese instead of mozzarella. It was amazing especially if you also try a bowl of the tomato,white bean and spinach soup. YUMMY!
Ordered the roasted turkey tartine with cranberry chutney (pic), the hummus tartine and the blueberry blintzs. Simply amazing french bistro.
I'm visiting from Dallas and I have found yet another reason that I love Austin! LOVE the food (a lot of local foods as well as organic), the atmosphere relaxed and soothing!
Don't ask the waitress if your soft boiled eggs could be medium, that'll leave her staring out the window in despair for half a minute then going "I mean......... We can TRY!"
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.
Whenever they toast the bread this place will be a five star. The mushroom crepe and the black beans salad are very good. Everything can be easily shared
Great place for delicious pate and mussels! However, mussels are only available after 5:00 pm. Enjoy outside dining on the patio or in front of Bistro.
Get the mushroom crepes! They're like French enchiladas. Oh, and save room for the cheesecake--it's some of the best I've ever had (and they make it in house).
I'm a big fan of the tartines. My waitress recommended getting the roasted turkey and cranberry chutney and adding avocado and Brie. It was delicious!
At Blue Dahlia, try the Smoked Trout plate. To share with a friend, get the mesclun greens as well. Sit out back and sip on a belgian white beer. Mmmmm.
Wine selection is tasty and served european style, the food here is healthy, often organic, unique and very good! I've loved everything I've ever ordered...
Amazing spot with outdoor seating at the front and back. Great food, service and coffee. Also happy hour!
Best value for money! I had about given up on Austin for its meager portion to pricing trend. Look no further than the Blue Dahlia!
For a cheap taste of Blue Dahlia's amazing homemade bread, head there on a Sunday and order a basket of assorted breads and jams.
Check out the brilliant wine caddy ready for your table here. Everything is awesome at this local Austin spot.
The coffee and chicken salad tartine were great. Nice spot to get some work done in the AM.
Seafood salad with smoked salmon is good! East meets west :) for only less than $10?! What a steal!
Roasted Red Pepper Soup, Waffles, Fruit, Salad, Sandwiches all awesome!Breakfast portions are smaller, lunch portions are huge!
Blue Dahlia is amazing. Organically and ethically sourced, friendly, and eco-friendly. Breakfast all day, amazing cappuccinos, and the best croissants!
The salmon tartine is very delicious! And try to get here on time for the happy hour - before 6:30 PM.
If they're going for a stereotypical French experience (dreadful service, overpriced food) they hit the nail on the head. Dreadful. Absolutely dreadful.
Be sure to order a bottle of the Malbec and try anything on the menu! Great food! Ask for Elizabeth, she rocks!
Best breakfast we had in Austin. Try their frittatas and waffles. Everything else also looked really good too!
Consistently one of the best meals in Austin... Great food, fantastic service, good prices, what's not to like??
Get the watermelon salad with ahi tuna & pesto. I'm not sure if it's technically on the menu, but you can certainly order it as such.
Everything here is delicious, reasonably priced and really good quality. I suggest getting one of the tartines!
If you choose to order the blueberry blintzes, be aware that They do not constitute a meal. Extremely SMALL PORTION!
Soooooo good! This place is a keeper! Everything we ordered was perfect and the atmosphere was just right...
The tartines aren't a sandwich, they are a crazy plate of 5 open faced sandwiches. Army feeding portions here.
The first time I went here, the food was amazing (frittata!). Today I'm receiving the worst service!
is serving Kohana Coffee Kenya AA during the month of February - it's a treat folks. We love this place the food and the people here.
Smoked Salmon Tartine during happy hour (3-6:30) is good. Bread Pudding with Butter Rum is BETTER
My absolute favorite restaurant! Try the prosciutto tartine with raspberry thumbprints cookie.
the ravioli and the ratatouille are fantastic. as is the house-made breads-n-spreads.
Enjoyed the Sausage and Mushroom Fritatta this morning with a toasted bagel and cream cheese and large cup of coffee. Great way to start the day!
Great coffee and ample sitting, but gets busy at lunch so plan accordingly!
The cheese plate it generous and paired with a bottle of wine, not a bad early evening date.
Organic products whenever available, environmentally conscious business practices & supports local vendors.
The service staff are all amazingly good looking. Our server looked like Ryan Gosling's brother.
quaint, french, and so cheap on E11th. All the tartines are good
The reviews are calling this a French bistro. Don't be fooled: it's continental cuisine.
