I've been going to Upper Crust even before I moved to Austin 13 years ago. I have a totally, crazy sweet tooth, so trust me when I tell you that this place has some of the absolute best baked goods in town. My all time favorites are their chocolate cupcakes with a cheesecake center. The bakery is a perfect place for a weekend morning. I love going there, getting one (or two if I'm being bad) pastry item, some coffee, and reading the paper next to the sunny window. Of course, that's assuming that there are any open tables when I get there. They stay pretty busy and for good reason. Parking can be a pain, but worth the effort. If you really don't want to fight the crowds, go during the afternoon when it slows down a little more.
Have been to south location as well as Red River. This location offers more choices regarding breads and the salads are better at this location. This location was the first in which I tried the pimento cheese. It is consistently good at this location, the Red River one varies at times. The f…
4. Hey Cupcake!
Hey Cupcake is a must visit in the fall when the Pumpkinator cupcake hits the menu. By far the best cupcake on their menu and a damn-shame they aren't available year-round. Red velvet and John Lemon toe for second, and a little whipped cream makes everything better. Bug enough to share and don't…
We ordered a cake for a relative's 80th birthday party, which turned out to be fantastic. All of the family loved the beautiful design which topped the cake, and were also very impressed by the chocolate cake itself- moist, not overly sweet (which is always a concern with a heavily decorated cak…
The menu changes daily, but the specials are savory. The iced tea is flavored with peach...or was it apricot? One of those two, but a treat nonetheless. The BLT sandwhich is to die for, as well as the elborate desserts.
17. Easy Tiger
Hands down one of my favorite casual joints in the city. You can't go wrong with beer, bread, and cheese. The pretzels are amazing, the baguette with goat cheese and pear and fennel mustard is life changing, and the corned beef makes my Irish family proud. Outdoor seating is dog friendly, the pi…

Located adjacent to the the world famous Sixth Street, the cafe serves brunch, lunch, dinner, and dessert daily.

I love Quack's! I've been going to them ever since they had the location on the drag. And during college, they nourished me with fresh, baked goods and coffee for 6 straight years. The employees are usually pretty nice and the place is always packed. However, they have so much seating available that you can almost always find some open seating. Here are some of the desserts that I really enjoy there: rosemary apple pie, coconut pie, salty oat cookie (sounds weird, but I guarantee you'll like it!), pecan snail danish, Italian cream cake, carrot cake, and the most kickass sugared cinnamon rolls I've ever had in my entire life!
Austin Cake Lady did our beautiful cakes and they were incredibly easy to work with. We forgot our ribbon so she went and bought it for us.We made a mistake on flowers and she fixed everything for us...duhhh...neither one of us has been married before so I know we weren't the easiest to work with but they made it all okay.. Everyone at the wedding raved about the cakes and how pretty they were. Some of our friends are using them now too . He's a baker and said he'd never tasted better cakes. They definitely get me and my new hubby's votes.
Hands down one of my favorite casual joints in the city. You can't go wrong with beer, bread, and cheese. The pretzels are amazing, the baguette with goat cheese and pear and fennel mustard is life changing, and the corned beef makes my Irish family proud. Outdoor seating is dog friendly, the ping pong tournaments are fierce, and the live music is great. There's plenty of parking around back. Go once and you'll be craving the beer cheese forever.
These cupcakes are so delicious. They have the best variety in flavors. My favorite is hula - the coconut with cream cheese frosting. The prices are reasonable, and they never run out of flavors. The only drawback is it is difficult to park there. The best bet is to park around the corner or the street and walk over.
Cupprimo has great service and everyone there is very friendly. I've had somewhat inconsistent experiences with the coffee. Normally it is quite good, but occasionally its not up to par. Their cupcakes are good, but not amazing. Could be the age of the cake I had, who knows. Need to try them more to make sure :D
Phoenicia bakery offers a great lunch menu and numerous ethnic grocery items. It is worth a special trip to buy their pita bread fresh for home use. Their pita can not be beat!! The stuff available in local grocery stores tastes like rubber compared to the pita available here fresh!!
We get Sugar Mama's treats in our office sometimes for meetings, and they are incredible. The team over there come up with new ideas all of the time, and have some great seasonal items. Their cupcakes are amazing, but I recently discovered their bars, which I am now addicted to.
We have been a customer since day 1. I am a big fan of the Apple Danish, Sticky Bun and Schneken sorry about the spelling. On our way right now for breakfast. Chuck and Seven are really great guys. Upper Crust you rock.
Not a bakery that's for sure...the "Pies" refer to the pizza. Very friendly and attentive staff, huge beer selection, and the aforementioned pizza is fresh and delicious.
