Good food, good wine, pleasant atmosphere, It is all very good at the 34th Street Cafe. We visited on a Wednesday night. Not too crowded, I think this might be a good happy hour place for wine lover's

My niece graduated this morning and chise to come here to celebrate with family. I am sorry that I neglected tomaskkour server's name. He was excellent! Patient and kind, accomodating and knowledgeable. Food was delicious. My niece loves their coconut cake so they baked a whole cake just for us. It was a treat for our family.

Great food and a quaint little space. I had the Reuben sandwich, prepared with pastrami on toast. The burger was tasty as well and great fries. Plenty of parking in the rear.

Delicious Asian Chicken salad!! Although a little pricy, it's a big salad and a great lunch spot. Additional parking in the back of the restaurant and located on the corner of Lamar. Great location and good food! My friend had the grilled salmon spinach salad and was pleased. We also occasionally get take-out from here.

I don't know how they do it, but this little jewel of a restaurant manages to feel perfect whether you're celebrating a special occasion or just want a nice dinner out. The menu is broad enough to please everyone without being so expansive that there's just too much to choose from. The chicken piccata is always wonderful, and if they're... More

I dropped in here by chance during my trip to Austin. I had no idea from the outside what type of place it would be. I was quickly put at ease. While I do not like dining solo, I enjoyed my experience here. Specifically the vegetables were cooked to perfection. I also got to meet the owner who came by... More

10 of us had a dinner at this cafe and were very pleased with the food and service. We ordered fish cakes, salmon, pizza, grilled vegetables, soup, salads, and dessert. Comments from the group was that all food was excellent. There was an excellent wine list, as well.

Eddie Bernal has done a masterful job with this little gem just off of North Lamar. The Hack Chicken Salad is our hands down favorite, but I think the restaurant really hits above the mark with their season, locally produced appetizers. Very creative and always a win-win.....do yourself a favor and order the fried oysters....lightly battered and unbelievable!

Party of six, of whom two ordered the tasting menu. The rest of us sat and waited while those two had their first course AND their salad. Only then did our orders arrive! Was it our responsibility to ask that we be served sooner? Food was fair; summer squash on one plate was bitter, but it was replaced with another... More
