Here at Ellie apartments on East Oltorf, we believe that brunch is more than just a meal. Brunch is truly a state of being. When you’re at brunch, you rarely have a care in the world. Think about it; brunching is almost always done on the weekends, which means you’re already in an unusually relaxed state of mind. Plus, if you’re going to brunch, you obviously don’t have anything more important to do. You only turn down a brunch invitation when you have to do something boring instead. When you let errands and chores overrun your weekend, you usually miss out on brunch. When you don’t have to deal with those problems, brunch becomes the obvious thing to do.
Because we love brunch so much, we thought we’d write a blog about it, our first blog, in fact. This blog will be a bi-monthly thing moving forward, and residents can expect it to be a source for new restaurant recommendations, coffee shop suggestions, apartment living tips and more. You can bookmark this page and check back every couple weeks or so to read the latest posts.
Anyway, back to brunch. In this week’s blog, we’ll break down three of the top-rated brunch spots near Ellie apartments on East Riverside. Some of these places may be hole-in-the-wall diners, and others may have rooftop decks overlooking downtown. However, we urge you to remember that brunch isn’t about the setting; it’s about good food, good friends, and taking a moment to relax.
Take a look at the blog below, and be sure to share this with your friends and neighbors living at Ellie apartments. We want to make sure everyone knows where to find the best brunch spots in the neighborhood!
This Austin eatery specializes in crepes, and they do a great job of it. We suggest the Versailles crepe with brie, parmesan, artichoke, mushrooms, onion and spinach. It’s absolutely amazing. If you want something a little sweeter, go for the Bordeaux crepe with walnuts, apples honey and brie cheese. The atmosphere at Cafe Creme is a bit odd because it’s in an old office building, but we think the food more than makes up for it.
There aren’t too many places in Austin that serve elk, but The Buzz Mill is one of them. Try the elk hash for a taste of something different. Buzz Mill is the perfect place to go to brunch if you’ve got dogs, as the restaurant has plenty of outdoor seating and a friendly, open vibe going on. The breakfast burger is another good choice for brunch-lovers who find themselves at Buzz Mill, and we’ve heard nothing but good things about the cold brew coffee as well.
According to a few Yelp reviews, the food at Mour Cafe + Pantry is cooked by a chef who used to be in the Army. His experience in the armed forces allowed him to travel the world and try different flavors from a wide variety of countries, and that experience is reflected in his cooking.
The highest rated dishes at Mour Cafe + Pantry are the avocado toast with salmon and the spicy burger. This is a super cute little brunch spot, and they clearly understand the importance of plate presentation. All the meals come out looking highly Instagrammable, so make sure your phone is sufficiently charged!
