The Parlor

The Parlor serves great pizza and beer in the Hyde Park area.  It's right across from Hyde Park Theatre, so we combined dinner here with a show. The pizza crust is thick and there are some good beers on tap.  They have many topping options, including vegan cheese.

Waffles is a tiny food trailer right near campus, at about 24th & San Antonio St.  They sell several breakfast items- American waffles, Belgian waffles and crepes.  The toppings will satisfy any sweet tooth.  The business is owned and run by students so give them a try!

Tiny but delicious Belgian waffle topped with chocolate:

Crepe filled with nutella and strawberries.  You really can't go wrong with this combo, but there is so much crepe competition now, there are better ones to be had around town.

Taste No Evil Muffin Co.

Taste No Evil Muffins are served out of a trailer on south Lamar.  They now serve fruit smoothies in addition to coffee & tea.  The muffins are made from all natural ingredients and come in a variety of flavors.  You can call ahead with an order or just show up at the truck like we did.  $13 for the half-dozen muffins pictured below.

The Woodland in Austin serves upscale comfort food in an atmosphere that feels like a fairy tale forest.  They're in a prime location on South Congress and the prices are a little high for the type of food, but luckily we were armed with a Groupon which meant our meal was half price.

I am so glad we finally tried this place out.  And on a perfect day, too- we sat outside and the weather was so nice. 

Come on Saturday between 5 and 7 pm to enjoy their Saturday happy hour.. $6 classic cocktails and small plates for $2 or $3.  (Click on the menu to see it larger)
The "Brandy Daisy" is apparently the inspiration for several modern drinks such as the Margarita.  It had a nice citrusy flavor, not too sweet.
These are all pre-prohibition cocktails.  People liked delicious drinks 100 years ago too.

Ok, so I'm trying this whole "after the jump" thing.  Notice the "Click here" below for seeing the rest of the food and drink!  Just click it.  You won't be sorry.
