Bay Area (SF/Oak) folks headed to Downtown Austin ISO Yum

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
Moonshine
The Gingerman (for a pint)
Cedar Street (for evening drinks)

FURTHER OUT
Magnolia Cafe or Kerby Lane for late night
Polvo's
La Reyna
Threadgill's
Z Tejas

COFFEE
Who has the best coffee in downtown?

Thanks!
