    I wasn't able to eat here because I wanted the takoyaki from the Love Balls Bus. But I could not get over the calm and welcoming atmosphere of the outdoor cafe. Hopefully I'll be back in Austin. •﹏•

    Very cool date place or to chill with a group of friends. Get one of their cocktails - the Bulleit Mule is my favorite!
