It was Easter Breakfast for us, as we were visiting from out of town. A friend of my daughter's who is from the area recommended Cafe No Se to us and we were so glad that she did. Loved the decor, loved the food! Great job Cafe No Se!!!

I don’t know how to properly answer the noise level question but it was good? Wait staff was excellent. Food was very over priced however. We went because it was 50% off and I can’t believe the dish I got was normally $18. I would say the value of what we ordered is $30 and without the discount it would have been $45 pre tip. Overall good on everything, i just think the prices need to come down a bit before I come back. Good luck, I hope you make it.

A group of friends and I went here for a birthday dinner and it was great! The food and drinks are very tasty and fun. The restaurant is very cute and is perfect for a small celebration or girls night out (also great if you want to take cute pictures). It is in a great location in Austin and there's a lot to do within walking distance. Our waitress was very nice and accommodating, and she made sure we had everything we needed in a timely manner. I would highly recommend!

Service was disappointing, we were a larger party with gratuity already included in bill and were basically ignored because of it. Forgot one of our apps and took forever to get additional drinks.
Wait time would have been more understandable but, restaurant was not busy.

The pulled pork with grits was very well prepared and flavorful, a real comfort food dish. I’d definitely order that dish again. My GF had the branding which also was quite well prepared. Nothing was left on either of our plates, but we still enjoyed the Austin “Fog” whoa boy was that GUD!!!

We live down the street so we’re Familiar with the restaurant and the area. As usual Food was great. Sat outside. Only thing lacking (again) was service. Waitress seemed totally aloof and uninterested. We don’t expect someone to chat us up and be annoyingly cheery, but at the very least try and fake a smile.

The food was not good at all. I ordered the tuna coconut rice poke bowl and the rice tasted like it had been in the fridge for days and didn’t have much flavor at all. My sister ordered the quinoa bowl and it had so much olive oil, that’s all you could taste. We were both surprised a chef could let such poor plates leave their kitchen. However, we also ordered the vegetable beignets and they were delicious.

Nice atmosphere, cool hotel, bad food.

The variety and quality of food was excellent. Rather than meals 2 of us shared 3 appetizers and it was more than enough food. The rose pour over was delicious; would be an excellent choice on a hot day. The pea beignets were so tasty and different. Definitely will go back again.

Very cute decor, beautiful presentation of food, and great service. Food was tasty (avocado toast and smoked salmon croissant) and just the right amount. Croissant was a little overdone, but the beet eggs were beautiful (and taste like normal eggs). Mimosas were on the smaller side. Overall great brunch!

Love this part of town and had been wanting to eat here. Great ambience, but when it came to food, I was disappointed. The menu features many health conscious options and while I opted to have the burger which was $17 plus $3 avocado, I expected much better. The cheese tasted like a kraft single and the bottom bun was soaked in grease. My wife had the quinoa salad that was well portioned, but quite bland.

Clearly breakfast, brunch or lunch is more popular than dinner because hardly any other guests were there. We found the food and service to be just what we wanted that night. Love the decor, service and healthy options. Location is also great for doing other things on Congress.
