So we came here to meet some friends from out of town. The waiter was slow, and would wait fifteen minutes after us ordering something to tell us they were out of said item. Coffee syrup, sandwiches. My friend requested salad dressing but the waiter never brought it and her plate was cleared without ever getting dressing. Complete waste of time and money.

Came here for brunch with a group celebrating a college graduation - the Salad Nicoise was fabulous and I would definitely order it again! Very typical Austin vibe - large tables are shared when needed, service is attentive, but not pushy. Casual attire works great here. TIP: be ready to spend a little time finding a place to park.

If you need to stop and grab a coffee then this is a good place. I enjoyed a lovely strong cup of coffee and the waitress, although not very knowledgeable was friendly. The decor is pleasant and the prices are fair.

We were able to walk here from our hotel and it was an absolute pleasure. Far removed from the fried and fattening foods, the healthy environment was a complete treat.

Having dined at Blue Dahlia several times over the years, including our wedding luncheon, we made a return visit last evening. One plus (in my eyes at least) is that breakfast can be ordered at any time of day. However, this time the recital of specials lured one of our party, while I stayed with the regular menu. The meatloaf, while extremely tasty, was WAY too much food—unusually for me, I couldn’t finish it. When I commented to my waiter “that’s a LOT of food”, he said that it was ONE POUND of meat! My wife enjoyed her salad (which was huge). Tasty bread of two types accompanied all meals. There is both indoor and outdoor seating. Service is competent and there is parking on the street in the area. Homemade soups and Gluten Free options abound, in addition to various taster plates such as cheese, etc. If you are looking for European Bistro type dining, you’ve found it here.
