Partially funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign, the new brick and mortar location has added authentic Italian pizza and salads to their menu.

Mediterranean Brunch at Cafe Malta

It would be easy to drive by this South Austin shopping center and miss Cafe Malta, but we’re here to tell you to take notice! This Mediterranean restaurant amidst a small strip mall is another great option for South Austin dining. We decided to head to the restaurant for a weekend brunch and were pleasantly surprised at the bright and charming interior.

We really appreciated that the menu had a wide variety of both breakfast and lunch type items and not just standard brunch fare. We started our meal with their unique take on a crostini - slices of house baguette topped with shredded pork, caramelized red onion balsamic jam, black pepper and goat cheese. There were just too many words in that description that sold me on this appetizer.

For our main dishes, we chose the Steak and Eggs (grilled chardonnay-marinated hanger steak served with two pasture-raised local eggs sunny side up & roasted potatoes) and the Gnocchi with gorgonzola cream sauce, garlic and thyme. The steak and eggs were the clear winner here, both cooked to perfection and a nice balance between breakfast and lunch.

The Mediterranean spin was a refreshing take on our usual brunch choices, and I look forward to trying more of Cafe Malta’s dishes!
