It's Friday! And I will be headed for Austin as soon as I get off work! Oh the excitement! Here are a few of my favorites in Austin:

Best Breakfast Taco: Torchy's or El Chilito...Torchy's may be better in general but El Chilito has the best salsa and much better coffee. So, Torchy's = best taco; El Chilito= Best Taco Experience

Best Coffee: Anderson's Coffee...This is hands down the best place to buy beans for brewing.

Best Coffee Drink: Pacha...The Pacha latte is worth putting their name on.

Best Dinner with Friends Restaurant: Trudy's, the mexican martini and stuffed avocado combo is hard to beat...crowd pleaser.

Best Bakery: Sweetish Hill/Uppercrust, although this is a near impossible category.

Best Bookstore: Bookpeople...hands down, no excpetions.

Best BBQ: Salt Lick

Best French Restaurant: Chez Nous, it is fabulous, you're almost in Paris.

Best Outdoor Activity: Barton Springs

Best Place to See a Movie: Alamo Drafthouse

There is so much more, but it's hard to categorize everything (i.e. it would talk too long) so here are the honorable mentions: Blue Elephant, Maudie's, Matt's El Rancho, Waterloo Records, Mozart's, Hula Hut, Zilker Park, P.Terry's, Uncommon Objects, South Congress Cafe, Fado,  219 West, Kenichi, Vino Vino, Kerby Lane...and everywhere else, I just love Austin to death.
