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

lovely little coffee house/cafe - Edit

The artsy lofty atmosphere reminded me of shops in Chicago. I tried a cold veggie sandwich with the Asian coleslaw.Mmmmm I am not usually a coleslaw fan, but this is the yummiest, not slathered in gagworthy mayo, side ever. I got the lavender lemonade too. Everything was fresh, healthy, and delicious. The people are sweet and knowledgeable and answered all of my questions about ingredients used. I am pretty critical of what I put into my body and I am grateful for helpful and intelligent information.
My coffee was dark and toasty, just how I need it to be.

Pros: artsy atmosphere, plenty of seating

Cons: not all organic

Breakfast Burritos! - Edit

Went for brunch and loved the tofu scramble and vegan chorizo! My husband got the renadict which was very yummy as well. Our waitress was friendly and let us know that they were super busy and it was taking a bit longer to get to our order because there were a lot of people ordering tofu and they only use specific pans for the tofu! (Props for that)

Tofu Renedict - Edit

I came to try the much hyped tofu renedict. I didn't care for the vegan hollandaise sauce so it was a bit of a miss for me. The scramble was decent, though. I liked the ambiance but be warned, get here early for weekend brunch because there can be long lines (and the renedict can sell out)

Rockin' yet relaxed veg cafe! - Edit

Visited Oct 2013. Busy yet spacious with heaps of seating options: sit at the bar, take your laptop to the communal tables, sit inside/outside, whatever! Brick walls & wooden fit out makes it feel warm & homely & the decor is kinda rustic & distinctly Austin. The food is nourishing, whole food vegetarian dishes. I had the tamales & ooohhh they were good! Both gluten free & vegan options available. The servers are friendly & cute & not pretentious! The wifi is free! The atmosphere is relaxed! The prices are reasonable! Go here.

One of my favorite restaurants anywhere - Edit

A funky, eco-friendly vibe is trumped by outstanding meals at Bouldin Creek. Luscious salads and filling sandwiches are available vegan. We took my husband's elderly parents, who are picky non-vegans, and they absolutely loved it. Anytime we're in Austin we make several trips to Bouldin.

Pros: healthy, yummy fare, reasonable prices, funky vibe

Royale with Cheese - Edit

My wife and I visited Bouldin Creek Coffee House and Cafe in their new location this afternoon, and absolutely loved our meal on the patio. I ordered the Veggie Royale with chipotle pesto and added cheese. The house made veggie patty was incredible, and the pesto sent it over the top as the best veggie burger I have ever had. I washed it down with the locally brewed Live Oak Liberation Ale.
My wife ordered the chickpea mock chicken salad sandwich with asian coleslaw, which was also excellent. The new location has more space and parking than the old, and is very clean and trendy. Highly recommended!

Pros: Dog Friendly Patio, Clean, Delicious
