Located on a small hill just an earshot from bustling South Lamar, the Picnik food trailer will make you feel like you’ve been transported to a much more serene location. Picnik is the first paleo restaurant/trailer in Austin. The trailer offers smoothies, coffee and pre-made meals. After ordering, you can make yourself at home on one of the picnic tables, benches or rugs to have an actual picnic on the grassy hill.

The Picnik trailer offers many food and beverage options but they are known for their butter coffee. This decadent coffee is made by substituting steamed milk with a mix of grass-fed butter and MCT oil. Sounds interesting, right? Not only does butter coffee taste delicious, it’s also known to have excellent health benefits as well – including increased energy, appetite curbing and increased cognitive functionality. The butter coffee can be made hot or over ice so it’s perfect for the ever-changing seasons we have here in Austin.

The menu at Picnik ranges from paleo-friendly pastries, breakfast tacos, quiches, soups, grass-fed beef and much more! The food is prepared throughout the week at an offsite kitchen and brought into Picnik daily. Everything is served cold with the exception of the soups.
