Had breakfast here while staying over in Austin. It was absolutely amazing, low key relaxed setting with a friendly staff made for a good start. The food was well prepared and the bread was absolutely delicious! We had tostada's, granola and standard breakfast, so left...More

We were a group of eight for breakfast. Almost everybody ordered something different and everybody liked what they got - banana walnut pancakes, french toast, various egg dishes, and coffee. Prices seemed high and the portions huge, so we made it more reasonable by sharing...More

Not sure why Texas French Bread does not have a higher rating. It has been an Austin staple since the 80's. It has great atmosphere and an excellent Spinach and Chevre omelet. Would love to find this place if I was from out of town.

Had the chicken salad sandwich. The bread was nothing special and the chicken I am sure came from a can and had no taste. Even my Americana coffee was below average. Wont return in the future.

The baked goods are tasty but definitely not anything like true French baked goods ... First they are huge... Secondly "doughy" not crisp and layered like any I've eaten know France... But they are tasty just not French ... French people aren't FAT their portions...More

Ate here with my wife. Seated promptly. Comfortable seating. Simple decor, but great feel. Friendly, helpful server. Excellent duck egg omelette appetizer. Dewberry chicken delicious, but $60 for a chicken and potatoes (yes, for 2) a bit pricey. Great bread. Nice wine and beer list....More
