Natural/organic restaurants in Austin

We will be visiting Austin again so I was wondering if there are any new recommendations? I asked the same question about 6 months ago and some of thes suggestions were:
24 Diner
Monument Cafe
Kirby Lane
Eastside Cafe

My son needs to avoid artificial colors, flavors and preservatives such as TBHQ and BHT. 24 Diner and Monument used oils with TBHQ or BHT and Kirby actually uses margarine in their pancake batter. I also think Eastside may have had questionable oils too. We wound up eating at Whole Foods, Torchys (there are serveral in Dallas so we know what to order that is safe there), Tacodelli and Stubbs. (My son loves stubbs BBQ sauce and the briskit is all natural so he was happy there.Plus he could eat the fries there too) He wants to eat at Stubb's again but we can only go there on Sunday and we don't want to do the Gospel Brunch. What time does that end? We are thinking of trying Home Slice or has anyone tried Local Slice? We will be staying at The Domain but we are willing to drive South for one meal and that would most likely be on Sunday around lunch/brunch. I was also looking into Ruby's? But many reviews say it is quite dumpy. Would love to try Franklin's but we are not standing in that long line. I looked at a few other BBQ places but their sides are limited and he is picky so we want him to eat more than a plate of meat. :) The Snackbar looks really dinner menu looks really appealing but we would probably hit it around lunch time. Thanks!
