Loop deur die historiese distrik van Austin vir kuns, musiek, sielkundige winkels en South Congress Café

Daaglikse brunch bedien in 'n retro-moderne omgewing in die bruisende South Congress Avenue

Geniet die bekroonde wortelkoek Franse roosterbrood, gedoop in roomkaas -pekanneutstroop.

Sondag brunch. In Austin hoef u nooit te wag nie, want daar word daagliks brunch bedien South Congress Cafe!

Hierdie historiese hipstrook, beter bekend as SoCo, bied 'n verskeidenheid eklektiese winkels, boeremarkte, oudhede, musieklokale en galerye. Bekend vir sy infusie Bloody Mary, South Congress is deur Huffington Post as die top drie in die land aangewys, en dit is ook klassiek mojitos aangebied deur Texas Monthly.

Met die eerste oogopslag laat die baksteenmure en die houtdeur die eetplek lyk asof dit 'n antieke winkel kan wees. Gaan die South Congress Café binne en verras hoe fyn dit aan die binnekant is met wit leerhokkies en swart servette.

Ander gewilde items op die spyskaart sluit in die garnale en korrels, gesmoorde varkhaas, en eiers benedict. Maar die bekendste superster leef op die nageregspyskaart, die Carrot Cake French Toast!

Die nagereg bestaan ​​uit wortelkoek, kaneel -vanielje -eierbeslag, bedek met pekanneutstroop met roomkaas en 'n bietjie vars seisoenvrugte. Die smaak is 'n interessante kruising tussen u klassieke piesangbrood met klein stukkies wortels, plus 'n sweempie gladde vla.

Die stroop is ekstra soet, maar balanseer tog die effense bitterheid van die wortelkoek. Die snye is dik, genoeg om tot drie cowboys en cowgirls tevrede te stel. Hierdie soet vegetariese genot is werklik 'n stukkie hemel.
