Ole Austin Coffee or Lunch Spot

Great place for coffee or lunch. They serve Andersons' coffee, one of Austin's favorites; what more do I need to say. Health salads, hearty soup or sandwich, and decadent desserts.....

RUSSELL'S AWESOME CAKE FOR MOM'S 100th BDAY

I've been going to Russell's for years, and some of the most special people in my life have coffee and tell stories around a table there on Wednesday mornings. Dr Ralph Smith and Jack Goodman anchor that table, and whatever THEY don't know isn't worth thinking about...so I've had a long history of looking over the tasty things and sampling plenty from the pastry case. And so when it came to ordering the Cake of the C... view more

Need a special cake DON'T go to Russell's

So my wife's grandmothers 80th birthday is this Saturday, and we wanted to celebrate by presenting her with a beautiful lady-bug themed cake. So the week prior we went to Russell's, and placed our order with the apathetic female clerk at the counter. We should have known by her attitude and lack of any customer service skills that things were not going to go according to plan. But assuming that this was a professi... view more

Is this even a bakery?

I love exploring new bakerys and I was excited when I stumbled upon Russells. Sadly, I was disappointed. nothing in the display case looked appetizing. I ordered a brownie, which tasted stale and way to sweet, and a danish. the danish was the biggest disapointment. it tasted old and mushy. I would not recommend this place at all.

Most lousy baked goods I've ever tasted.

Stopped in their older bakery for the first time and was truly disappointed. I'm from the East where fantastic bakeries are quite common. When you walk in, it doesn't even smell like a bakery. Honestly, it smells like NOTHING. \r \r I looked in the case and decided to buy a variety of items to taste. The cupcakes looked good with what seemed to be a yummy swirl of butter cream frosting. Then I bought a strawb... view more

Not a good place for a wedding cake

I have been to Russell's Bakery a number of times, and am a huge fan of their food and atmosphere, so I thought this would be a great place to get my wedding cake. After leaving numerous messages with them to set up a cake tasting and get the process rolling, I finally received a phone call 3 weeks after my initial call, and after my third message left, only to find out that they no longer are doing wedding cakes exa... view more

Good Bakery

The cookies are very good and they have a nice selection of sandwiches. This place is a little out of the way for greater Austin, but I'm glad I found it.

Best coconut cake in town

Great place for an afternoon break-good variety with a delicious coconut cake with 7 minute icing. Also a good place to buy Mexican vanilla!

Perfect Place to Get a Wedding Cake

I recently used Russell's Bakery for my bridal cake and groom's cake. It was truly the best expierence I could imagine. Not only was Russell so helpful, but the cakes turned out far better than I ever imaged. Some weddings cakes just look good, but don't taiste good. This was not the case with Russell cakes. They were delicious. Everyone from my wedding has said they were the best wedding cakes they have ever had...a... view more

Try the cinnamon rolls

I used to frequent Russell's years ago when he had a very small store and I was glad to once again live in Austin so I could return to Russell's. I once again ordered my favorite coffee and one of Russell's cinnamon rolls. Wow - still as good as I had remembered. A freindly, yummy place to hang out. Many of his desserts are original Russell recipes. You MUST try not only the cinnamon rolls, but Russell's carrot c... view more
