Thoughts on my choices for 1 night / 1 day in Austin

swicks | Mar 10, 2010 09:10 PM

Hey all,

I'll be in Austin for a sunday night stay over and leaving Monday evening. Wanted some thoughts on some of the places I was thinking about hitting up. Any other suggestions? I am from Socal so I will probably skip tex mex or mexican and sushi. I won't have a car so would prefer places within walking/short taxi distance from the downtown area.

Dinner Sunday night - Was thinking about Wink, I read on another thread about Parkside. Thoughts? Other suggestions?

Coffee - any suggestions for a good local/independent coffee house? I am staying up near UT at the AT&T hotel. Would love an awesome cappuccino.

Monday Lunch - Was looking for some Barbecue, because, well, obviously. Iron Works? Saw somewhere else a place called Franklins? Got great reviews on Yelp. Other suggestions? Was also thinking about going to Frank, instead of Barbecue as I have heard good things. I know driving out to Lockhart is clearly the best move for barbecue but that's not an option.

Thanks all!
