Overall, I like Café No Se. Avocado toast was great. This time, soup arrived cold. We were in a rush so didn't complain ... hopefully just an isolated slip.

Great food and easy to talk. It was totally uncrowded but it was a Tuesday night, so that may have had something to do with it. Loved the Poke and the Tiramisu. The Sparkly grapefruit drink was great too. All my friends loved their meals too. We'll be back

It was a great experience, the food was well made. Full of flavor, the salmon was seasoned boldly. The service was good! There was slight confusion with cocktail waitress that assisted us. She couldn’t answer simple questions about the menu. Overall it’s an awesome place. I recommend it, it’s also really great for large groups!

The five of us all thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast/brunch. We were all first timers at Cafe No Sé and all from out of town.

I would be happy to return and try some other menu items, as they were all very appealing.

We called ahead to confirm, and an employee discouraged us from coming. He mentioned they were closing at 10, and that our 9:30 reservation should’ve been rejected.

Been wanting to come here based on the menu and location.
Space is adorable, cozy, warm. It's fitting for South Congress hotel.
Seemed understaffed based on the time we had to wait for our waitress to greet us. The restaurant was full on a Friday night. We chose a later time of 2030. The same for the check arrival even though we were the last guests to leave.
Food was nothing special to write about. True Foods Kitchen has a similar menu and is much more flavorful. I wasn't even very impressed by my wine. The mule my dining partner ordered was made with lemon not lime. I did like the horchata sorbet but the small scoop for $3 was too overpriced to come back.
Glad we tried it but won't be returning.

The wait to get out food took so long that at one point I had to remind the waitress that we had ordered an appetizer. She apologized saying something like the kitchen being "not with it" that night. The waitress promised to comp the appetizer when it finally came but never did it. When the food finally came out it was mighty disappointing. Chicken Milanese was heavy breaded mess. Quinoa bowl was pretty tasteless. People were screaming so loud at another table and laughing - it was the highest noise level I have ever heard in an Austin restaurant and really unbearable. So disappointed in this place.

This has something for everyone (and it's all delicious), from small bites to plates. Our group with varying diet preferences were all happy with their choices. Great menu and ambience. Bonus is that they validate for the South Congress Hotel garage which makes this an easy stop in a busy area.

We love Cafe NoSe, its always one of our must visits when we have execs in town. Get there before noon or else you'll have a wait - or use Open Table for a reservation! (Terrible plug, I know)

The menu was hit or miss for my friend and I. I enjoyed the salmon, but the grudo was pretty meh. The hummus had exactly zero tabbouleh in it, despite the menu description. I might consider going back for the location, or if they change the menu, but it just didn't seem worth the money to me the way it is now.

Went for dinner even though they are a breakfast and known for their pastries. Had hummus and poke bowl which were delicious. Order the ancho margarita to drink - on point! The server was knowledgeable and guided through the menus with the favorites. Looking forward to coming back for brunch.

Decent scene, amazing food, service left quite a bit to be desired (I am a firm believer that you should never have track down your server or feel as if the larger table has higher precedence that yours)

I thought the food was very good and the desserts were out of this world, but the service was not quite up to par. The restaurant was not full and there were several servers, but we still had to flag our waiter several times to get service

Food was great, service was ok but we were extremely rushed. We ordered 2 starters some entrees and an order of malt fries to share with our entrees. The fries came out before our apps, then the apps were dropped at which time the waiter said we need to make room because our entrees would be right out. It was out of ordinary for a nice place with great food and overall attentive service. Sweet potato beignets , beet toast, salmon and poke bowl were all delicious

I will never get tired of the beautiful decor of this place. It is super cozy. But I am not blown away by the food. The roasted baby carrots were delicious but others were good, but not amazing. It's a lovely date spot, and definitely worth a visit for the awesome drinks.
