    We love to come here for so many reason! The ambiance is so festive and welcoming! Perfect to come for coffee and amazing desserts! We also enjoy the eggs Benedict and the most amazing cheese and garlic grits. Seasoned just right-and I know since I am a grit critic being from Mississippi! And the croissants with strawberry butter—so amazing!!! You just can’t help yourself!

    Chez Zee never disappoints! Love that strawberry butter starter with warm croissants... it's a starter they just bring to your table... Love their omelets and their country potatoes are divine! What about that bacon - nice and savory and thick... Great service as well!

    They don’t have enough servers, so they pack the guests in like sardines who can see all the empty tables in the other rooms. It is so loud that it is hard to carry on a private conversation. Our food was excellent.

    Food as always was really good, the ambience is wonderful Austin "charming" and the prices -while increased- are not unreasonable. It was difficult to carry on a conversation because of the noise level, but it was prime time.

    Wonderful place, but way too expensive. $65.00 for two female adults and one child to have brunch is too extravagant for these days and times. I love the place, but won't go back anytime soon because of the prices. Sorry.

    My favorite restaurant in Austin. There is no such thing as a bad meal here. Hint: try the fried pickles-I don’t even LIKE pickles but these are amazing. Great crab cakes too. For lunch, I love the bacon quiche. For dinner, try the pecan crusted salmon or my favorite, Sharon’s angel hair pasta in garlic cream sauce. Plenty of options for vegetarians too, by the way.

    First time here and it was a great brunch. Waitress provided great service and the croissants and butter they bring to your table is amazing! We ordered biscuits and gravy, had to ask for extra gravy because there was hardly any on the biscuits. It was a .75 up charge and wasn’t aware until we got the bill. The chicken and waffles were good. The chicken was cooked perfect and the warm pecan syrup was really good. Also had a glass of tea… I realize prices are going up everywhere but $4 for tea is a little nuts to me.

    Loved both the food and the service. Only complaint was the hostess was a little snippy when we arrived about 10 minutes early. She told us we were too early and when asked if we could go ahead and be seated, seeing that there were many empty tables available, she begrudgingly did so., Not sure what that was about but after that encounter, the waiter was wonderful, the service was excellent and we both really enjoyed the food.
