Elizabeth St. Cafe | Austin

Is it wrong to choose a restaurant just by how it looks from the outside? From my husband’s experience, I do that all the time. I guess, you can say, when it comes to food, I have no loyalty. I like trying something new all the time. So, on a Sunday brunch while cruising at South First here in Austin, we drove by this cafe that we had to turn around. I was drawn to the candy-colored pink and turquoise facade, the striped gray awning was an added bonus and the word Boulangerie literally called my name. This is Elizabeth St. Cafe which offers a French Vietnamese light fare, always with an Austin vibe of course!

French Doors everywhere! Bringing the outside in & the inside out.


A lot of light, striped + turquoise caned chairs and marbled black & white floors are amazing together!
The Parisian chic wallpaper is unexpected in the bar area but totally adorable!
The bar stools have a mix of turquoise & mint hues. The marbled bar with curvy brackets are distinctively French.
You know how I love arched hallways!
The Cafe at night.

 The food? I’m a bit partial as I love Asian & French food. We had a couple of Banh Mi’s {Vietnamese Style Sandwiches}, Nigori Breakfast Punch and Pots De Creme for Dessert, well because Creme Fraiche is good with anything! I’m definitely coming back!

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.

  1. WOW! such a cool place, I love finding places like that. Like you I decide on a restaurant from the outside. I think its a good guage as if the owners have thought about the exterior then you can be pretty sure the kitchen is the same. I really ADORE that marble counter on brackets – what a brilliant idea for a kitchen??
