One of the funnest (* best places for a frozen treat in the city is Gelateria Gemelli with fun flavors such as Vietnamese Coffee and Roasted Banana.  And it’s true Italian style serving delicious coffee and liquor with the famous Aperol Spritz to the Prosecco, the Italian version of Champagne.  This place is legit, and true East Austin style with a cool vibe from the atmosphere to the staff.  It’s a must.

TIP: Open Daily from noon-11pm.  Trailer on East Cesar Chavez.

Whether you are looking for another bar, coffee shop or restaurant, there is plenty to explore in this area, here are a few ideas:



In trendy East Austin is Wright Bros Brew & Brew aka “Brew & Brew”, serving coffee and beer starting at 7am until midnight.  East Austin specializes in bringing cool, hip spots and new ideas to the forefront, and this is no exception.  Where else can a group of friends relax with a cup of coffee to start their morning and follow up with a craft, artisan beer to ease into the rest of the day.  Perfect.

TIP:  Open 7am-midnight daily.  Breakfast, Lunch and Snacks available too.

Argentinian steakhouse is synonymous with romance and Buenos Aires Cafe will impress from start to finish. Perfect for an anniversary dinner or a first date, the rich menu will perfectly compliment a coffee from Wright Bros. The original location is charming, but the Hill Country Galleria location is also a delight. Definitely try Chef Morris’ Verdura Empanadas and the Churrasco Con Fritas with the signature chimichurri sauce. Delish.

TIP: Open daily for lunch or dinner. Call for reservations.  2nd location in East Austin. They have bakery and catering available.  Kid Friendly.
