I am a former Austinite (left in 1996 or so) pulling together a list for friends who will be staying near the convention center next week. They are both food lovers and looking for both places near the convention center and a few expeditions in town. Here is the list I have pulled from memory and friends. What am I missing?
I'd love to steer them towards amazing, but for the place near the convention center, tasty and Austinish will suffice. They only have a car for a bit of the trip so trying to build the list of nearby/bussable places too.
CLOSE to CONVENTION CENTER:
Frank at 4th and Colorado
Walton's Fancy and Staple
The Gingerman (for a pint)
Cedar Street (for evening drinks)
Magnolia Cafe or Kerby Lane for late night
Who has the best coffee in downtown?
