Music Cafe on S Lamar

I visited Music Cafe a couple of days after its’ initial opening. It’s on the west side of Lamar, just north of Oltorf, very walkable for a creeky and has a bus stop outside for those in the north. Theres also a dozen or so spaces around the side for parking.

It’s a great space and they’ve done a nice job of using it. A large yard at the front with tables and lights under a large tree. A small patio again with tables, and inside is very interesting, and I think they’ve met their design objectives with something a little more swanky than a coffee bar, and a little more airy, light and open than a regular bar. Lynn and I visited for early Sunday lunch, drinks and a sandwhich. I had a turkey sandwhich, Lynn had a wrap. The food is bought in, delivered fresh daily, but this limits choice, and also restricts combinations, sauces etc.

Along with the sandwhich I had a crisp glass of pinot grigio and later a double expresso. Both were good. Given it was midday Sunday the noise from the traffic wasn’t bad, and there was a laid back feel to sitting on the front porch. They are planning numerous and regular music events. They are also having a party with Bead It on May 29th, benefitting Uplift Austin. The event facebook page says “An evening featuring live bands: Bankrupt & the Borrowers, Carrie Elkin and Special Secret Guest. Free beer, 20 Artisans. Vendors will be on Bead It and live bands/food/wine at Music Cafe patio.”
