What a great store! I loved the local vibe and the fact they also carry HE'S products (the other local store). They have an amazing variety in every product category. The selection of beer & wine was quite impressive. Produce area was beautiful. Do stop...More

This place is a bit of a mixture. The food is pretty good, if a bit odd. The indoor seating area is poor - decor, ambiance - & the outside eating area looked pretty good. Definitely worth a try.

Central market is a supermarket very similar to a wholefoods but they have a restaurant / outdoor sitting area with a kids playground! This is amazing for a chill, family lunch on a weekend. They had live music when I visited . You can buy...More

Great market that carries everything. Too easy to spend money there. We ended up eating at the cafe there and really enjoyed our meal. You can also buy food from the market and take it out to the cafe patio to enjoy.

We got salad from the salad bar and gumbo from the soup bar. The gumbo is packed with a tantalizing mixture of yummy spices, flavor and so many good ingredients. It makes for a tasty and reasonable lunch.

When the store first opened I thought it was a snooty, pretentious store of overpriced hard-to-find foodstuffs. Turns out, that is the direction that Austin and food stores all took, so this place is perfect. Rare foods, snooty pretentious types who look down from their...More

Jennifer, you may want to call them directly, but I think they do. Austin is such a dog friendly town. By the way, just got back from Vegas and was surprised to see several dogs in the casinos and hotels. Not sure if they... More
