Avenue B Grocery & Market
Avenue B Grocery and Market is probably the best thing you haven't yet heard about. Hidden in Hyde Park, this 102 year-old grocery store has stood the test of time. Once considered to be far from Austin's city center, Avenue B Grocery now finds itself in one of Austin's most popular neighborhoods. Avenue B is owned and run by Ross Mason, a nice guy with an interesting sense of humor, who puts a lot of care and heart into the soups and sandwiches he doles out. There's a daily special written on a chalk board, which he'll urge you to try (and you probably should; Mason knows what he's talking about). Hinted at by the name, Avenue B is also a small neighborhood market, where you can quickly buy your basic items at a reasonable price. The different facets of Avenue B come together to create a community-oriented place, where you can linger outside, munch on your groceries and relish in the old-school feel of the entire set up.
