Amazing food, fabulous service, great experience overall.
Creative, healthy menu and everything we had was fantastic with great service too!
This is a really good cafe to get some healthy and tasty food. It is more of a lunch atmosphere than evening dining - casual, no table cloths and no stemware for wine but clean and welcoming. There was only one waitress serving the room the night we went yet she handled it with ease and grace. She was attentive and helpful. We started with the hummus plate which we shared between the two of us but could have easily served 4. We are gluten free so a nice sized plate of veggies showed up to replace the pita. Hubby had the burger which he normally prefers medium rare but was told the chef serves it well and if he doesn't like it she will bring him something else.....well it was delicious! (trust the chef he knows what he is doing) I had the hanger steak because I have never had hanger steak before. It was tender and delicious and the brussel sprouts with them were very tasty . The beer choices were local (as I recall) which we were happy about and the wine choices were good - a little something for everyone. We didnt have dessert so cant comment on that. If you have having to deal with the parking on south congress and boy who doesnt - the Congress Hotel where the restaurant is located has a parking garage and they will validate parking for two hours. All around a good deal, a good meal, a good night out - I recommend it.
Really good food and service
Location and Ambiance are great, food was under-seasoned and staff seemed not to care about attentiveness.
My new favorite restaurant! Absolutely incredible experience all around. The food was exceptional!! Staff was sooo friendly. The ambiance is also lovely. Can’t wait to go back!
Dripping water from ac vents on my friend required us to move our table.
This is a great spot. Low key, wonderful menu, friendly servers. The cocktails are great!
Salad very good, service very good. We ate outside and since we are on Congress we new it would be loud but at time it was unpleasant.
We had dinner at Cafe No Sé before our senior prom and it was amazing. The service was great and the food was amazing!
We really enjoyed the little dinner getaway. The food was amazing in the ambience of downtown really made it a lot of fun. We will be back!
Needed more servers. SOOOOOO SLOW
The food is amazing and staff was great.
Great location on South Congress for shopping and dining. Lovely indoor and outdoor space with great service and sanitization during COVID. We enjoyed our food and drinks a lot!
such a great restaurant!! i would be back soon for brunch!
Everything was perfect, Natasha was our server and she was simply brilliant!!! Definitely going back!!!
THE BEST FOOD IN AUSTIN!!! The service was incredible, atmosphere was amazing, and this is my top recommendation for brunch, lunch or dinner in Austin!
Thank you SO MUCH for the great review, Addie!
Lots of hype and unfriendly servers. There were very few reservations available so we were grateful to finally get a one. Upon arrival we were surprised to see only 15% of tables occupied. Plus the server was arrogant and unfriendly. We opted to forgo ordering dinner and left after one round of cocktails.
Had the best time with my girlfriend! Great food
Thank you for choosing Cafe No Se for such a special night with your girlfriend! Come back and see us soon!
I had the crawfish beignets, the hanger steak, and the butterscotch lava cremeux. One if the best dinners ever. 10/10
Thank you so much for your review, Tabetha! We are thrilled to hear you had a wonderful time! Come back and see us soon!
Great flavors for Valentine’s Day.
Food was great. Service was extremely slow. My biggest complaint is the bathroom sink. The sink was clogged and it was a low profile style which didn’t leave much room between the bottom of the sink (and even less because it was clogged) and the faucet. Made it hard to wash my hands and not touch the dirty clogged sink water. Yuck.
Big portions, nice environment
We always have an AMAZING experience at Cafe No Se. it’s one of our favor day date spots. The service is always personal and individualized. The food is healthy and delicious! Our puppy, Lucy also love this spot because they have pup-sicles:) thanks for always being amazing!
I was not particularly impressed with the food. We had avocado toast and the cowboy breakfast. The toast was decent. I disliked the pork on the cowboy as it was sweet. The beans had a decent flavor but the sunny side up eggs we cooked through with no yolk. I ordered coffee but it was lukewarm. Just expected fantastic based on the reviews and $35 price tag. Probably not going back.
Best brunch in Austin. Wonderful location for work, dates, or catching up with a friend. The service is second to none.
Thanks for the five stars, Scott!
We had a great dinner but had an issue with the table we were given. The hostess was quick to move us, but you really should inform your guests they will be seated at a high top table beforehand, we could have let them know that wouldn’t work. My mother has a back problem and can’t sit in a higher chair.
Overall loved the food and will be back, wanted to let you know about our experience. Thank you!
So happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us! We are always happy to accommodate specific requests for seating preferences - simply add a note in your reservation to let us know ahead of time! Thanks again for stopping in, and we hope you'll be back soon!
We got the laffa bread to share, which was delicious, and the warm olives, which were disappointing. The hanger steak was great. Cocktail sizes were pretty small, too much ice, better to get wine or beer.
Surprisingly less crowded Austin on South Congress option for a date night. Great vegetarian options plus something for all (burger and fries or shellfish Paella). My Crispy cauliflower was delicious. The space feels tucked away from the Congress Street bustle and multiple parking options were available. Waitstaff was helpful with our drink order (paleta in your drink description means frozen treat)- we enjoyed the Salty Bee. Reasonable pricing and a nice atmosphere. Will return.
Thanks for the great review, Kathleen! We hope you'll be back soon.
Location is great. Food was meh. Service was meh. Drinks were meh. If I’m paying that much money I expect all of the above to be waaaay better.
Great food. Great service.
My boyfriend and I came here for an early NYE dinner and were blown away by the food, value, and service. Most restaurants were charging and arm and a leg for prefixe (sp?) NYE menus and we were getting discouraged with out search. We then found a reservation at Cafe No Se and the food was absolutely delicious. I have always had a pleasant experience here and highly recommend!
This is always my go to spot for breakfast. The place is cute, the food is great, and it’s usually not as crowded in the morning time. I would definitely recommend this spot!
We came with high expectations based on the reviews and scarcity of open reservations and were disappointed on almost every front. Our meal was during off-peak hours and service was still snails pace. The eggs were over-cooked, the bacon was what you’d expect from a hotel continental breakfast, you’d have to get 3 drinks before you felt a buzz (despite having empty stomachs from the slow service). Two stars for the artwork alone. Maybe they intentionally starve you so you spend ample time observing the space rather than eating. Enjoy.
Brunch was delicious! We sampled quite a few of the pastries! Everything we tried was delicious!
Love this place- delicious food and bev, and great service
Thanks for joining us! We are thrilled to hear we hit all of the marks for you. We look forward to having you back soon!
We were here for Austin Restaurant Weeks and are from their special menu. It was amazing and I look forward to going back again for their regular menu items.
Waiter didn’t seem like he wanted be there, but the food was excellent.
