Enjoyed Neptune (seasoned grilled potatoes, avacado, green onion, verde, & lemon sour cream sauces with Jack cheese), eggs, and very good bacon ($16 total). Great service. Clean cafe.

Had a big party and all were seated, but not together. Service was good. Parking is a problem but no worse than other eateries in Austin downtown
