Sit-down places for Hot Tea

Zhi Tea is a great place to have some tea and hangout. They have free wi-fi and a really comfortable couch to lounge on. It's usually pretty empty which is why I love it so much. And they have over 75 different teas!! The employees are super friendly and seem to really enjoy talking about tea and making free samples to help you find your perfect tea. Plus the other places that have been listed serve Zhi Tea (Friar tuck, Monkeynest, Hillside
Farmacy and I think the Steeping Room)

Looking for a "Meat and Three" around the Austin area.

I'm looking for a southern style restaurant that serves one meat with 3 sides of vegetables, I know that sounds silly but "Meat and Three" restaurants are very common style found in Tennessee and I'm trying to impress a girl who's a little homesick. I want to surprise her by taking her too a place where she can get some comfort food. She has joked about how food around here always just come with 2 sides. Can anyone out there help me out?

It doesn't have to be in the Austin vicinity. I'm totally open to day trips to San Antonio, Houston and any small town in between

Mimi's Cafe

Ok so it's a chain, but it's not bad. I too went to the new one in the Arbor Walk off Braker and MoPac. I found the service to be enjoyable. You get served a bread basket before the meal with a French baguette and some carrot cake (or maybe it's a bread). Regardless they're good. Portions are huge and the prices are about average. You could easily pack half up for lunch the next day. Didn't have any drinks from the bar or dessert. It did take a little long for the food but if you order a salad or appetizer and are with good company you won’t notice. The décor is nice, particularly the Bourbon St. room. If you have never gone before I’d recommend going. It’s always worth trying something at least once..
