Bouldin Creek Café, located in South Austin is one of the few vegetarian/vegan restaurants in town. Not only is it one of the few, but it also happens to be my favorite and judging by the daily wait times, it’s many other people’s favorite as well. The café is nestled on South 1st Street, which is home to many fantastic restaurants. In my opinion, breakfast is the best meal at Bouldin Ceek Café and even though the patio and dining room are rather spacious, it fills up pretty quickly.

Bouldin Creek Café has so many options, it’ll be hard to decide what to get. Insider tip: the omelets never disappoint! We chose to order the Joe’s Smokin’ Omelet and The Renedict.

Joe’s Smokin’ Omelet is filled to the brim with spinach, onion and cheddar-jack cheese and is drizzled with their delicious chipotle-pecan peto sauce. For a side, we ordered the sourdough toast and the house black beans, which had just the right touch of smokiness to them. The omelet itself was very hearty and we couldn’t even make it to the sides.

The Renedict is a vegetarian take on Eggs Benedict and it was fantastic! Judging by the below picture, it looks like it’s just a couple of eggs on top of a bed of spinach, but underneath that spinach is crisp ciabatta bread, local tomatoes and tofu “bacon”. The whole dish is covered in a homemade vegan Hollandaise sauce. 

The Renedict - only available until 1PM each day or while supplies last

Bouldin Creek Café also makes a mean mocha. Their Nutella Mocha freeze is a decadent post-breakfast treat. Not only are they selling coffee drinks but also beer and wine (mostly local) with specials each day.

The bar is the perfect place to grab a beer or a coffee and get some work done

The great thing about Bouldin Creek Café is that it’s open from 7:00am to midnight Monday thru Friday and 8:00am to midnight on Saturday & Sunday. Next time you’re near the South 1st area, you should stop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
