First it woke up Rosedale, then it spread to South Austin. Now, wildly popular chain Snooze, an A.M. Eatery is bringing all-day brunch to the east side.
The Colorado-based chain will open its third Capital City location at 1109 E. Fifth St. on September 25, notes a release. It will be the first restaurant to open in the Plaza Saltillo development.
The new outpost’s menu is anchored by heavier fare like eggs Benedict, pancakes, omelets, and diner-style breakfast plates with bacon and hashbrowns. Lighter dishes include egg white scrambles; grain bowls loaded with farro, quinoa, and roasted vegetables; and avocado toast.
And since brunch without booze is just a late breakfast, Snooze also offers a full bar. In addition to expected cocktails like Bloody Marys and mimosas, there are also a few originals, such as the Boss Hog, with bacon-infused bourbon, and the Wicked Watermelon Margarita, with house jalapeño-watermelon agua fresca.
Every time Snooze launches a new location, it hosts three invite-only practice services that serve as fundraisers for the local nonprofits. For the Plaza Saltillo location, the chain will be partnering with Central Texas Food Bank; Anthropos Arts; and Partners for Education, Agriculture, and Sustainability (PEAS).
Once Plaza Saltillo is fully operational, it will be a busy dining hub. Joining Snooze will be Japanese barbecue joint Gyu-Kaku, gelato maker Dolce Neve, JuiceLand, the Kebab Shop, Hopdoddy Burger Bar, and recently announced tenant Poke Austin.
