Vietnamese with a French Twist: BÁNH MI and Macarons
If you are craving Pho, Báhn Mì, Bún, and Spring Rolls and wanting it with the classic Vietnamese Coffee, then Elizabeth Street Cafe is your place.
Nestled in South First Street, Elizabeth is the epitome of what South Austin is about; "a beautiful garden patio, bustling lunch, beer, wine, sake, vegetarian specialties, croissants, baguettes, pho, curry, national newspapers, dog friendly, kid friendly, to-go food, ride your bike over here and hang-out kind of place."
My fav drink: The Red Dragon (Beet Sake, Orange Sherry, Ginger Brew, Fresnos, Falernum and Lime), but if you are a purist, they have an impressive list of Sakes, Beers and Wines!
Don't leave without trying the desserts; daily Macarons, Eclairs and Bouchons!

Charming date night spot
Elizabeth Street Cafe manages to do the near-impossible these days: combine delicious (and affordable) food, a cozy ambience all while adding its own unique style. A twist on Vietnamese and French, the quaint pink and turquoise cafe serves up heaping bowls of pho and bun bowls, while housing an amazing French bakery (the Nutella eclairs are to die for). My boyfriend took me on our first date here and ever since it's been a favorite place to meet up with girlfriends for drinks or Vietnamese coffee or to take out-of-towners looking for something different.
