    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!"

    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]

    If they're going for a stereotypical French experience (dreadful service, overpriced food) they hit the nail on the head. Dreadful. Absolutely dreadful.

    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

    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.
