Forthright is a bright, refreshing spot with a cozy, tree covered patio in downtown Austin. Their toast is the highlight of this charming cafe, but they also have monthly surprises like chicken and waffles and eggs benedict on homemade muffins. Even if you’re Gluten Free, they some of the best options for a healthy, delish breakfast or lunch. The owners, staff and chef are some of the nicest in the city and a prime example of why Austin has become a city of foodies with passion. It’s a gem.
LADY BIRD LAKE:
Lady Bird Lake is the heartbeat of the city with 10 miles of trails with lakeside views to enjoy walking, running, biking, kayaking or paddle boarding. In 1971, Lady Bird Johnson, Austin Mayor Roy Butler and Ann Butler led the journey to create a trail. Today, there is a path with a dog park, and plenty of places to relax on lawns or benches along the way. Water fountains, showers and bathrooms also line the pathway. Trail maps can be found on the link above.
Tip: Forthright is located right off the trail, and is a great place to start a day in Austin.
