Texas French Bread-great walnut scones & lots of other yummy things.
Spider House-great place to grab some coffee and hang out.
Hopfields- bistro food and tasty brews.
Pad Thai-incredible fresh food in a clean and attractive setting.
Wheatsville-an awesome coop and their handmade sandwiches & hot food bar are great also.
Tom's tablooley- good food that is good for you.

Lindsey was a warm and welcoming host, making it known if there were any questions or concerns she was available to help. (email hidden)rfect... Value was a definite plus. I hope to return before too long and my first choice would most definitely be Crow Cottage!!!
Our host was so welcoming! I invited her to show me around the cottage so that I was aware of what was available and located in the cottage. My stay there was extremely comfortable, quiet and most definitely a place I will visit whenever I travel to Austin. The cottage is centrally located and a perfect place to stay while in Austin. And the décor was one of my favs about the cottage. By the way ... that bed was extremely the best in comfort! Loved my stay at the Crow cottage. So glad I found it!
Here's why I love Airbnb. I get to meet people like Lindsey and her husband and stay in a place that is just as good as the photos make the place look. It was clean, comfortable, private and in the "Heritage District," a neighborhood of Austin with a co-op, restaurants, coffee and pretty close to downtown.
I use Airbnb for almost all of my travel. Lindsey is one of the best hosts I've had with one of the nicest places I've stayed. I'll be back and hope to get to her place in Phoenicia one of these days, too.
I couldn't recommend staying here more! Lindsey was an incredible host and the cottage is truly beautiful. The location is great and walking distance to a wonder Food Co-op where you can pick up any groceries you may need. This is one of my best Air BnB experiences, if not the best. Thanks, Lindsey!
Lindsey made us feel welcome and was available to answer questions but was very respectful of our privacy. The Crow Cottage is beautiful and looks identical to the pictures. The neighborhood is quiet and lovely, but easy walking distance from several main roads and tons of places to eat.
I felt welcomed and cared for. The cottaf
ge was what I expected and enjoyed the place very much.
I had the most wonderful stay at the Crow Cottage. The cottage is absolutely beautiful and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The neighborhood is gorgeous and close to a grocery store, restaurants, iconic Austin landmarks, shops, transportation, the list is endless. Lastly Lindsey was a fantastic and generous host, she made sure I had a comfortable and safe stay while in Austin during one of the busiest times in the year. I can't say more wonderful things about my stay at the Crow Cottage, but what I can say is that I can't wait to go back some day!
