SXSW has officially taken over the city. Maybe you are one of the many, many folks visiting our beautiful town. If you are, maybe you’re looking for a more authentic Austin experience.
Good news! I’ve made a list of some great local places:
Coffee – Vintage Heart
You’ll have a tasty cup of coffee (made from beans roasted locally) and a quiet place to recharge your phone, catch up on your Instagrams or just rest between shows.
Brunch – Elizabeth St. Café
Amazing Vietnamese food and homemade, French pastries and sweets.
Best Tacos – Veracruz All Natural
Best Trailers – East Side King, Kerlin BBQ, The Peached Tortilla, and Dock & Roll
Best Gelato – Dolce Neve
After you’ve had the best gelato ever (my favorite is the chocolate with candied orange peel), cross the street and ham it up in front of the “Greetings from Austin” mural.
Best Boutiques – Take Heart, Feathers, and Olive
Best reason to rent a car: Contigo
Make good choices, remember people live here, and most of all enjoy your time in Austin!
