Located on the premises of Eastside Cafe is laid back Elaine’s Pork & Pie.  What could be a better southern combination than Pulled Pork sandwiches and Pie?  Perfect! They have a cute deck for eating when it’s nice, and pick up is available, if a fast lunch is needed. Otherwise, sit back, grab a glass of wine and relax on this gorgeous East Austin homestead.

TIP:  Open Tues-Sun 11:15am-3pm.
