Perky Cups Espresso at 2222 & 620

Unfortunate name, though. So where is it, exactly? Same shopping center as Rice Thai restaurant, or is it a trailer?

Pour House Pub?

Has anyone been here yet? Hard to tell if they are even open yet, but I'm wondering....

El Chile Northwest

Is this the place that took over from the Mesa Hills Cafe (I think that's what it was called) on Greystone?

Labor Day weekend in Austin

Trattoria Lisina is okay, but if you're from Boston, as Gini is, it surely will NOT cut it as far as good Italian food. To me, it's one away from Macaroni Grille.
Yes, definitely go out to the Oasis. The food is so-so, but it's like nothing you'll find in Beantown.

Good Outdoor, Al Fresco, and/or Patio Dining Experiences?

Lunch out back on the patio at Triumph Cafe (on Spicewood Springs Road between Mesa and Mopac) is always an absolute delight on a lovely Austin Spring day...

Friar Tucks Pantry in RR

Thanks! Looks intriguing - here's the website in case anyone wants to check them out (very odd placement of the photo on the welcome page, covering up the address), but I plan to visit soon. Says they carry "British Groceries!"

Sugar-free dessert for Thursday?

These are ALL great suggestions - thank you all! I might go with the prosciutto and melon... I just didn't want to feel relegated to a batch of Royal brand sugar-free chocolate pudding...8-)

Sugar-free dessert for Thursday?

One of our dinner guests on Thanksgiving day is diabetic. Where can I get something nice for dessert that he can have, while the rest of us bliss out on pecan and pumpkin pie?

Cover 2,3? whatever

Yes, it's the old Flores location. And called "Cover 3."

Baby Shower Cake

I've been really pleased with the cakes for baby showers that I've gotten at Dream Bakery. They are north, on Anderson Mill Road, just east of 183.

Kerbey Lane Cafe North - moving?

Nope Saccone's hasn't reopened yet. I too anxiously wait. And I completely agree about the level of (un)cleanliness at Kerbey Lane. Hoping a new location will give them a fresh start!

Kerbey Lane Cafe North - moving?

Drove past the Kerbey Lane Cafe North (on 183) and saw the banner. They are apparently moving to the center at 620 and Anderson Mill Road. That will put KLC and Saccone's within shouting distance of each other...

Which restaurant offers BBQ Family Style?

You're talking about The County Line. There are two - County Line on the Lake is on 2222, near its intersection w/ 360. County Line on the Hill is on Bee Caves Road, off 360 also.

German Chocolate Cake?

They're a bit expensive, but the cakes at Dream Bakery (183 and Anderson Mill Rd) are always excellent. And they make a GC cake..

What Austin-y gift would you send someone?

I second amykragan's vote of Tito's Handmade Vodka. I would also include one of Paula's made-in-Austin spirits....

I haven't been to any of their catered dinners in quite some time, but in the past, I know these folks have done a great job. Worth checking into...

What happened to Curra's?

Is it gone? Drove past last night, and it sure looked closed up. Does anyone know why/when this happened?

Ordering a Pre-cooked Turkey

Based on your recommendation, I ordered a Greenberg's smoked turkey for our Thanksgiving dinner. It was delicious, and everyone raved about it. My first nibble made me fear it was overly salty, but once heated up, the saltiness disappeared. The service and delivery were prompt also. I'll go with them next year for sure. Thanks to all!

Blue Bell Ice Cream

I think Blue Bell makes a good ice cream, but they'd be better off sticking with the basics. Why on earth do we need an IC flavor called "Wedding Cake?"

Need Anniversary Dinner Suggestions

How about Zoot? Lovely place, lovely food, and it's homegrown. Not sure if they are open on Sundays, but then, you can always have the celebration on another evening...

Stuffed Grape Leaves in Austin

And I'll mention the stuffed grape leaves at Tino's Greek Cafe. Anderson Mill Road and 183, although I think they have a south location as well.

Try Dream Bakery on Anderson Mill Road (just east of 183) - fabulous cakes. A bit pricey but well worth it.
