South Congress Cafe

Modern cuisine on Austin's most cherished avenue

South Congress Cafe is the premier interpretation of the Trudy's chain of Tex-Mex restaurants, taking the quality and flavors popularized in Austin to a new level of sophistication. The waiting line is out the door each weekend for this favorite brunch hotspot. With refreshing and unique takes on traditional breakfast favorites like french toast, migas and eggs benedict, you simply cannot go wrong with any selection off their extensive menu. The open atmosphere is alive with sunlight and excited chatter during the daytime and packed with intimately-lit couples enjoying hearty local entrees at nighttime. The staff is generally upbeat, infused by the goodwill and openness of the funky street for which it bears its name. If you can avoid the crowd, your meal will be one of the best casual dining experiences in town.

Happy hour happens Mon-Fri from 3-6pm with half price wine bottles, $5.00 mimosas and bloody marys and $3.00 beers, margaritas and their world famous mojitos.
