Veracruz All Natural consists of a few picnic tables, lots of family and friends, and amazing tacos out of a food trailer…a perfect combination. The staff is warm and friendly, and the passion is felt in the food. The breakfast tacos don’t need a lot of fancy toppings as the tortillas are homemade and the ingredients are fresh. The chorizo and egg on a corn tortilla are some of the best breakfast tacos in the city. Their new Brick & Mortar is pretty Fabulous, so if sitting on a picnic table isn’t appealing, their spot is great.
Friends & Neighbors is a perfect name for this new East Austin shop. The charming cottage has been renovated with rooms full of surprises ranging from eclectic jewelry to vintage clothing and handbags. They serve local pastries, including Blackbird Bakery‘s delicious gluten free treats (Pictured above!). Relax on their gorgeous patio, or inside their large tee-pee, and it won’t take long to feel right at home.
TIP: The cafe is open Monday 8am-6pm and Tues-Sun 8am-8pm. The retail shop is open Tues-Sat 11am-7pm and Sun-Mon 11am-6pm.
