I'm the first posting of the 2017! And what a posting it is!!
Last night, I was delighted to celebrate the New Year with family and friends. Before the evening festivities, we drove over to one of my favorite spots - South Congress Café. After a round of fantastic appetizers, I ordered something I've been wanting to experience for months - their Carrot Cake French Toast. Unbelievable! A medley of carrot cake, cinnamon vanilla egg batter, cream cheese-pecan syrup, seasonal fresh fruit. Truly amazing. Truly delicious. South Congress Café is an excellent place to try new and awesome food supporting the local markets. Food is very eclectic and delicious. It's a must stop when you are in the Austin Area.
I've probably walked past this place a dozen times, then someone told me about their French toast... made with carrot cake. Great spot for brunch, always packed (so you know it's good). I can't decide if the food looks better, or tastes better- it's amazing!! Always a long line. Call ahead and you won't be able to rsvp but they'll put you on wait list til you arrive. They have a nice outdoor patio in rear but service backnthere is friendly but VERY slow. T took 20min to get our drink after we ordered it.
