The Steeping Room is Austin’s premiere full-service, contemporary tea lounge, restaurant and retail tea store. It is a place of sanctuary, social connection and the ever-growing and amazing world of specialty tea, food and tea ware.
They get extremely busy during lunch time. Make a reservation to avoid long wait.
Try the beautiful coconut tea. It's awesome!
Tomato coconut soup is the bomb!
Everyone here is super friendly. Feels like my 2nd home ;)
Look for Jonathan. One of the best servers I've had and just to let you know, I'm very picky.
Just love going there for a business meeting.
Try the iced jasmine tea! Perfect for these hot summer days! It won't keep you up, either!
Try the Mojteato mocktail...amazing good and it won't get you drunk.
The salted toffee chocolate cookie is amazing.
Great food and tea. One of my favorite spots. Unfortunately, extremely slow service at lunch. Also, eat outside. The acoustics inside are deafening.
Lunch will be busy. Call ahead of time and ask for a reservation. They're definitely on my speed dial 😊
The napa rolls are outstanding and you can't go wrong with tofu or chicken. The peanut sauce is superb
Salty toffee cookie + Mexican Coke = bliss
For the days when there are no cucumbers at the market, not even for ready money.
Buddha bowl! With every possible combination. So good.
the coconut cupcakes are delicious very creamy and rich
The iced chai is wonderful, pair it up with a scone and enjoy a sit outside in the quad
The cheese plate is excellent, as is the selection of teas. Almost too many to decide! Our waiter was knowledgeable and personable. Great place to relax.
The Big Red Robe Oolong is pricey, but worth it. They also have a great selection of Anxi ball style oolongs like Tieguanyin. Great stuff.
croque monsieur is excellent
Try the organic Rooibos Chai with the candied ginger scones - a match made in heaven!
The coffee is strong! One glass and im wired ALL day. I however don't like that feeling as such others do.
Be ready to wait for breakfast inside. Outside is always open. Cheers
The Buddha bowl, TLT, Tao salad, and coconut tea are musts!! Happy hour prices are amazing too :)
Mexican Hot Chocolate is a must-have-in-your-life!
The best gluten-free lunch spot in north Austin: Fresh, delicious, and almost everything is available in a gluten-free version
The salty toffee cookie is seriously the best cookie in Austin!
Food is wonderful! Service is AWFUL!
The coffee here is way better than the Starbucks next door for about the same price. Fresh when you order, taste is as smooth as a baby's bottom.
Sakura sencha gong fu style is a COMPLETE treat. Sit down for an hour or two with a good book and enjoy~~~
Try the blossoming jasmine peach white tea. Divine!
Love the Chocolate Chipotle Chai tea.
Worst, most expensive iced chai ever. Seriously tasted like nothing.
tofu napa rolls are a must!
Emily and fam are greatness&local. Tea: vithanakande, kenilworthOP, Assam-all single estate. Ginger scone=legendary. Cent oaks tea w/BLT, roast beef or pork tenderloin tea sands. Honey butter.
Apple cinnamon Rooibus is win
Love this place! I can't stop thinking about their goat cheese, tapenade, and arugula sandwich and their Genmaicha. Great place!
You can't go wrong with the Buddha bowl at The Steeping Room paired with the Rooibos Chai.
The Lemon Lavender cake is to die, resurrect, and re-die for...
Fresh, healthy, eco friendly, with tons of vegetarian options. Totally worth the drive to North ATX.
Great service. I tipped over the bill. Well worth it.
Delicious food and ridiculously attentive service. Had a flashback to Portlandia when the server confirmed yogurt of Bulgarian origin would be acceptable.
Grab a table outside, chill out with some mojteado, start with the napa rolls, and enjoy a sandwich :)
Get a Buddha Bowl w Tempe
The best tea's selection I have ever seen. The scones are to die for (along with the fig butter and strawberry jam). Excellent salads and sandwiches. Our weekend spot in the Domain.
Great Indian soup today!
the winter grilled vegetable sandwich is amazing. paired with genmai-hoji tea is even better.
Try the mixed berry spelt scone!
Don't bother reserving a table because they probably won't remember to hold it for you.
