LOVE their soups - Edit

First off.. this place has been around forever and screams old Austin. Bouldin is a place where you go when you want to truly feel the hippy dippy people of the past. Their food is great, customer service is always good and they are always featuring local artist on their walls. They are open from 7am-12am most days and their food taste fresh regardless of the time that you go. My FAVORITE soup from them is their brocc and cheese soup. Vegan, Gluten free and OMG yummy! I hadn't had that soup in over 6 years and when I saw it on the board I had to order it. This soup blew my mind and has me craving it ever since.

Their meals on the whole are around the $8-$9 range, but I believe their breakfast foods are cheaper. Please try this place when in Austin.. whether you eat eggs, tofu, cheese, faux cheese, gluten free, regular (and more).. you will find something here. Oh but they do get very busy on Saturdays (during the day) and Sundays. Maybe call ahead if you're in town for vacation to make sure it's not a long wait :).

Pros: Old Austin Feeling, Vegan and Non-Vegan options, Not too Expensive

Cons: Can get very busy, Extremely Limited Parking, Can get expensive quick with their add on charges

Top place in Austin - Edit

Bouldin Creek Cafe is overall a great place to be. It seems like it's even popular among non-vegan and vegetarians. This place never fails to please with their large menu and many gluten free vegan options (for me). My wife and I have brought many family and friends here and they all seem to love it. There is a cool Austin hippie vibe going on that makes us feel like we're in the heart of the city.

I highly recommend the farmer's plate as it is very affordable on a budget and you get a ton of food. The only downside is we usually wait a very long time to get seated, but it's worth it. I also wish they would get a bigger parking lot, but it's not that big of a deal.

Pros: Great place to bring meat eaters, Big menu with lots of options for different diets, Cool vibe

Cons: Usually a long wait, Not all vegan, Parking can be tough

Great Place To Eat - Edit

BCC is my go to place for breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner. I love the location and the menu choices. Specials are always great, as well as the regular menu. Use the No Wait app to get in line before you get to BCC.....it's saved me tons of wait time.

Pros: Specials are fantastic, Outdoor seating, Dog Friendly

Cons: Not 100% vegan, Busy at times

Would have rated higher if it wasn't for the wait - Edit

Finally managed to go their for breakfast / brunch. I was lucky that on a Sunday around 10am the place was not too packed. However, with an international phone number, the table placement service didn't really work and after everyone that had arrived after me was seated, I figured that they had forgotten about me but that I could simply sit at the bar where it is first come first served - wish they had told me that when I arrived.
Anyways, there was plenty of choice on the menu and I had a hard time deciding. Opted for the vegan benedict as that is not something I have seen elsewhere. It was nice - and plenty of food. So much that I couldn't try the blueberry corn bread, which I also really liked the sound of. If I get the chance, I'll definitely be back here.

Pros: Plenty of vegan choices, Atmosphere, Friendly bar staff

Cons: Gets busy - greeter seemed to have forgotten me, Non central location

always incredible - Edit

Great food, friendly staff, parking can be an issue. I've never eaten anything I didn't love. I come here whenever I'm near, but almost always have to park in the neighborhood behind the restaurant.

Superb for Vegans...especially brunch - Edit

Bouldin Creek is my go-to in Austin. Bouldin Creek is excellent for vegans and vegetarians any meal of the day: breakfast is served all day, lunch, dinner, dessert. Some dishes require modification to be vegan, like the Renedict, but the staff are very helpful. The portions are always so big and a great value. Save room for dessert because their pastry case is overflowing with vegan baked goods.

Pros: Many vegan options, Excellent food, Large Portions

Cons: Parking

A Favorite! - Edit

This is one of my favorite restaurants serving Vegan dishes in Texas. Always a very unique menu that changes a lot so always something new to try. If you haven't tried it give it a shot. Sit at the bar and have a great craft beer along with an amazing vegan dish. Staff is also VERY friendly!

True Austin staple! - Edit

Bouldin is our favorite place to eat in Austin. We typically go for breakfast but also have stopped in for lunch and dinner. I loooooovvvveeee the tamale breakfast! Two delicious sweet potato pecan tamales with the tofu scramble... best way to start your morning. Oh and make sure to get the Bennie to drink, it is great! If you happen to go at lunch or dinner, you can order breakfast but I would highly recommend going for the Veggie Royale Burger. It is beyond good, it's hard to decide which treat I like best so I say, try them both! I get the Chipotle pecan pesto as my topping of choice with kettle chips. The burger is served on a chibatta bun with lettuce and tomatoes. It's delicious!

Pros: food is great, nice staff, good location

Cons: wait time

Incredibly good! - Edit

Ordered the El Tipico (breakfast) sub'd the eggs for tofu scramble, which was excellent. This place knows what time it is. Everything was perfectly flavored, large portions and the dish was $6.50! Unheard of!!! I highly recommend Boudin Creek when in Austin. You will not regret it.

Pros: Flavorful, Large Porttions, Fresh

Great all around - Edit

I went with as the only vegan with 3 meat eaters. Everyone found something that they liked and when I got my "eggs renedict" they all had to try it! Super good and so many options! The customer service and atmosphere were great. However, if you go for Sunday brunch, be prepared to wait for a little bit. But in my opinion, as long as you're with friends and not in a hurry, it's worth the wait.

Pros: Options, Customer Service, Nice vibe

Cons: Wait time for food
