“Breakfast tacos!”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

We popped into this cafe for breakfast tacos one weekday morning and they were so good, we came back another day....but discovered that on the weekends it's a waiter service, different menu sort of place. Food was still good but it was a disappointment to not be able to get those tacos. Coffee's good but beware that it's $1 or 75 cents for refills.

“Great Choice”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

I ate dinner last night at Arturo's because it is a very short walk from the Hampton Inn and it had good reviews. I ordered the Southwestern Quesadilla that came with black beans and rice. Really good, flavorful quesadilla and best black beans I have ever had!

It's a really cool place with a funky vibe. Service was great too. Definitely check it out.

“Great Lunch and Brunch”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Walked to this funky little cafe for lunch on a recommendation from the Hampton Inn hotel staff - so glad we did. Came back the next day for brunch. The chipotle chicken sandwich is wonderful, as is their southwest french toast (complete with crispy bacon). Staff was friendly and helpful.

“Awesome lunch spot”
Reviewed 26 July 2013 via mobile

Reasonably priced lunch spot (about the price of a Chipotle restaurant). Several choices of unique quesadillas, salads and sandwiches. Recommend the Chipotle Chicken sandwich (its spicy!) and the Thai Chicken sandwich. I agree this spot is a hidden gem!

Stopped in for Saturday brunch during our trip to Austin. I had a very good Western scramble but the wife's chipotle eggs benedict made me ask the waiter for the Arturo's cookbook. Since the cookbook isn't out yet I guess we will have to go back soon.
Ambiance cost the fifth star as the place was a little noisy for our tastes.
