I probably had the best steak-n-eggs here. I mean perfectly cooked, everything seasoned just right.... and the biscuit warm with a lil crisp on the edge. I'm telling you this is a MUST-TRY type of place. I will be back. Go Austin.

Highly recommend this place for breakfast. All the pastries and bread are made on premise and so fresh. Mark Bedford the manager was very pleasant to meet and kasie was a lovely waiter. Food was fresh. Highly highly recommend.

We used the Café and Bakery everyday for breakfast. Service was excellent, and the food was out of this world. (Bread Pudding French Toast)

Great ambience. Food, presentation and service were top notch. 1886 croissant is a must. Had the Lady Bird omelet which was good as well.

We spent Christmas 2017 week at the Driskill Hotel in Austin visiting our son. Each morning we had breakfast in Cafe 1886. Delicious omelets, smoked salmon with cream cheese and house toast (my preferred it to a bagel), and delicious muffins with continental breakfast. I am gluten free and they offered excellent substitutes including fruit instead of the home fries... More

My husband & I had a wonderful breakfast here. Eggs Benedict & Huevos Rancheros were both very yummy! Coffee was fantastic. Service was great & very attentive. Water & coffee constantly refilled without being asked. A definite return in our future!

This bistro is adjacent to the lobby of the Driskill Hotel (a landmark in Old Austin). The kitchen and bakery are open to the dining area, making for enjoyable viewing, but a little loud dining, as pots and pans crash near you. Overall, this ambiance really works. The bakery produces some absolutely superb confections. Croissants here are the nearest thing... More

Management is MIA at this cafe. I called four days in a row, at varying times during the day, to schedule a birthday party for nine people. The person answering the phone was nice (same person three of the four days), and told me it's possible to make the reservation but it requires a manager's password. The manager was never... More

Went for breakfast one morning and also stopped in a couple of times for coffee and baked goods. Everything was pretty good. Nothing was spectacular. But a nice option to have when staying at the Driskill.

Thank Mark M
