“Trendy, but Good Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

The blackened tuna tacos were GREAT! The prices and atmosphere - not my cup of tea. If I were paying, I'd rather go visit the food trailers across the street.

“fresh food, fresh recipes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

You will probably spend $30 per person, but it might be done for $20 if you're frugal. Most, but not all, are simple dishes well-presented. All are gourmet-special, with interesting flavors you may not have had before, if you're like me. Recommended.

“Great Dinner on SoCo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Finished our weekend in Austin at the SoCo Cafe with my Aunt and Uncle for a great evening. Area was fun and vibrate, plenty of restaurants and bars. Dinner was fantastic. I had the filet and my wife had the meatloaf. Waiter was excellent, very personable and kept us never waiting. The restaurant is fun and loud. good for a fun a date night or a group of people going out on the town.

“Delightful to the pallete”

I love little cafes. This one has a 5-star touch without it being overly expensive. Wonderful flavor combinations and the eye appeal is also there. Thank you for being here!!!!
