Cafe Blue

So, unfortunately I was too distracted by the beautiful view to take photos of the food.  Cafe Blue has a great menu with a variety of standard fare, like sandwiches, burgers, seafood, etc.  You eat in an outdoor dining room that's literally right over the water.  On this Saturday evening we were able to get a table at the edge, and watched the gorgeous sunset!

Galaxy Cafe

I've written about Galaxy Cafe before, and usually don't like to blog twice about the exact same restaurant, but just had to share a photo of their "french toast deluxe" ($7.99).  Yummmmm! 
Galaxy Cafe has several locations in Austin, and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.  You can order from the breakfast menu until 4 PM on the weekends, which is great. Below is a mozzarella and tomato sandwich with a side of sweet potato fries ($7.29).  If you haven't yet jumped on the sweet potato fry bandwagon, you must!

Joe's Bakery

While waiting for a table at Joe's, you're forced to gaze into their bakery display case.  Of course, we all had to buy something.  They have a bunch of breads, cookies, etc. for cheap.

Mmmm, queso ($4.09).  Why does it always look so insurmountable when it arrives at the table, and yet is gone so quickly??
You can order from the breakfast or lunch menu.  The migas were pretty standard, a yummy mess of grease and eggs. ($5.79)
The chicken quesadillas ($6.69) came with rice and sooo many beans.  Everything came with a lot of beans.
Seriously, beans were eating our meal.  Oh well, they were pretty good.  This is the enchilada plate ($7.39).  I love Tex-Mex, but when I look back at the photos I sometimes think "wait... why?"

Thai House

Thai House took the place of the Thai Passion location on Research Blvd.  Strange thing is that the food seems to be exactly the same, and at the time of our visit, the "Thai Passion" sign was still up.  The only thing that seems to have changed so far is that the menus say "Thai House" on them.  We're not complaining, we liked the food when it was Thai Passion and still like the food now.  Red Curry is shown above, and below is fried rice.
The fried jasmine rice balls with curry are spicy and delicious.  Is there anything that can't be made better by frying it?
