    For an excellent non-Tex Mex breakfast in a ridiculously cute atmosphere, this place hits the spot. Don't miss the French-Viet crossovers like Breakfast Banh Mi. Read more on WinstonWanders below!!

    Elizabeth Street's breakfast menu heavily features French breads and pastries from the bakery. More fusion options include a "breakfast pho."

    I have previously enjoyed the Elizabeth Street Cafe's banh mi. Today, we had two dishes, and neither were that good. I had the mushroom and tofu bun. The noodles were well cooked, but the fish sauce less complex than I would really enjoy, mostly providing sweetness. I was disappointed by the preparation of the two small pieces of tofu, which were not grilled enough to provide flavor or to hold together very well. The relative dearth of mushrooms was even more disappointing: a few slices of button or crimini, and two slices of shiitake. The cha ca red fish was relatively bland, but well cooked. Along with a cup of iced Vietnamese coffee, the total before tip was $42, which was too much for such an uninteresting lunch.

    Came here during a slow hour to get a Vietnamese iced coffee, after I ordered the hostess/counter girl sneered at me and treated me like a third class citizen for not ordering any food to go with the coffee, and then after I paid made me drink it outside the front door in the Austin heat. To be fair though the iced coffee was almost as good as being in Vietnam, so not deserving of one star.

    Really nice spot for lunch/brunch. We went on a Sunday around noon and were able to sit right away in the quaint, albeit cramped dining room. Service was friendly and prompt. The menu offers a great variety of French Vietnamese foods to please the pickiest to the more adventurous eaters. We tried the Sweet Potato and Shrimp fritters, which were a standout--crispy, fresh and well-balanced. The steamed pork buns were the low point, as the pork belly was improperly cooked and therefore tough and gummy at the same time. I got the grilled poem bahn-mi and it was delightful on a perfect baguette, with fresh veggies and herbs, and nicely flavored pork. My husband got their specialty Bahn-Mi and wasn't as pleased with the cold, sliced pork, and preferred mine. We left with some pain au chocolat for our kids, which I plan to try. I hope to go back and try more of their offerings, including the fried rice and the Phō Oh, and the passion fruit mimosas were yum!

    My family enjoyed a great brunch at Elizabeth Street Cafe. Service was great and food was very interesting. Outdoor seating is kept reasonably cool with their misting system. I had a mango salad that had some kick but was missing shrimp that menu indicated would be part of the salad. Egg rolls were delicious, as was tuna salad. Parking is very limited so you'll probably need to park in neighborhood behind the restaurant.

    We were in the mood for a pho and four of us just had lunch there. This restaurant/boulangerie offers a cute setting with tables outside and inside by a bar as well as individual tables and one large communal table for 12 persons. We were seated at the communal table and felt that the space was a bit tight. We ordered some appetizers, pho soups and a Bahn sandwich. Everything was tasty but I wish our soups were hotter. Our lunch turned out to be quite pricey. If you like Vietnamese food in a cute setting, that's a good spot.

    I can tell you that I've eaten there by myself, and with friends, but I took my wife this last time so that I could get the full descriptive picture. It is a nice place to eat. Inside is really noisy, but it's the place to eat and be seen. outside it's cozy, and comfortable. It could use some outside airconditioning, but in general it's pretty bearable in the evenings and mornings. The food is fantastic, and everything on the menu is tasty and well prepared. The service, well.....I found that if you are a regular, you are treated as a regular, and if you are a newly, well...then you are treated with much less hospitality, and the staff seem less friendly and a bit hoity toity, to an extreme even. I find that the old Austin vibe of "young and friendly" from the staff a bit lacking. It does take away from the overall charm of the place, but my wife found it really great, and she said that she would eat there regularly if she could eat outside. The roar of the crowds inside were just too much to handle. The vibe is uncharacteristic of the locale, but I dig it anyways.

    We went around open on a Sunday morning and it was nice and quiet. The place was so cute! We got Vietnamese iced coffee, an almond croissant with strawberry guava preserves, and a breakfast bahn mi with fried pork belly, fried eggs, mint cilantro. It was all good, but the sandwich was really delicious.

    VERY pleasant space with lovely service, beautiful baked goods for here or take home. French/Viet influences. We split a Roasted Pork & Wood Ear Mushroom Omelette with mango, cucumber, basil, crispy shallots - totally savory and scrumptious! This place is a winner.

    Great food. The steamed buns were delicious but wish there had been more! I would definitely try the bahn mi next time. It looked delicious.

    Relaxing out door patio with cooling mist. Service was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed the shrimp noodle salad and ginger sausage with siracha sticky rice and egg. The beignets could have been larger and more fluffy with filling. A fun experience. Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain

    I will be back! I've always thought their sign was cute, but who knew the inside was too. Every little detail was thought of, from the pillows on the banquette to the silverware on the table...even the beautiful dresses on the waitresses. The whole breakfast experience was really lovely. Enjoyed a vietnamese coffee with a pretty presentation, the beignets were a great sweet treat, and the unique and seemingly healthy avocado, egg and noodle entree was memorable. I wish I lived closer because this would be such a nice way to start more days.

    Charming little house, friendly staff and really excellent food! I'm not a Vietnamese food fanatic, & some of the flavors were unexpected (even in simple items like the berry/yogurt/granota bowl), but it was fresh, complex & wonderful! So glad I remembered that a reviewer had said to order the beignets, because they were unbelievably good, and the jam was some of the best I can ever remember having. The everything croissant was another of those unexpected twists that raised it to a whole new level. Hubby loved the breakfast bahn mi. Simple food done really, really well with friendly staff in a charming & homey place that has a beautiful patio. I'm in heaven.

    I come from Houston, arguably the best Vietmanese food city in the US. I've been eating it for decades. This place is really good. I loved the grilled chicken thigh Bun. Outstanding.

    Okay, I'll be honest, my friend and I are from cities that have TONS of great Vietnamese restaurants so we might be a little biased. The prices here weren't bad but a bit high for banh mi and pho. We had Vietnamese coffee, one of the infused iced teas, the crab spring rolls (which are actually summer rolls), and a pistachio eclair. Everything was decent but the flavors all seemed a bit too strong on everything if that makes sense. Good but not great. Very crowded and service was kind of indifferent.

    I have always passed by this place and always wanted to check it out. It's located in a cute little house, serving Vietnamese food as well as baked goods from their 'boulangerie'. The serving sizes are quite big, but easy to finish! We had the shrimp spring rolls (pretty good) as well as the BBQ pork spring roll (a must!!!). I ate the Bun with marinated pork. Delicious!

    This place blends Vietnamese comfort food with French bakery classics. All of the appetizers are terrific, and the pho and banh mi sandwiches are to die for. The ambience is lovely, both indoors and on the small patio. Great for brunch, lunch and dinner.

    Was looking for amazing spring rolls and this was not the place. Singapore noodles were okay but I was not blown away. Atmosphere was delightful but not sure why such a long wait when we saw at least 4 tables open. We ended up at one of those tables. Place was nice but probably will not be going back any time soon.

    Outstanding Pho and Bon-Mi. Among the best in Austin. A fun place to go to enjoy the delights of Vietnam. PS. Don't forget the Vietnamese Coffee.

    This is my third time to Austin and my third time here. The food is Vietnamese inspired. I had Singapore noodles with fried egg and pork for breakfast. Out of this world! Great outdoor seating.

    We went to eat dinner here late at night wandering around the Austin burbs. It was like 9 or 10. This place had a good vibe so we stopped and were pleasantly surprised. The food was super fresh and we were served quickly and friendly. It was about a thousand degrees outside so the crisp local brew and spring rolls were really refreshing.
