You go to Cafe No Sé for healthy-ish food and a cool setting - it’s in the South Congress Hotel, and the space is big and bright. You’ve probably seen their avocado toast on Instagram, but Cafe No Sé has a lot more to offer that falls in the “kind of healthy” category. We like it best during the first half of the day- for breakfast, lunch, and brunch. Enjoy the good view, and get a side of pancakes with your kale salad.

Clark's Oyster Bar
Excellent seafood in an Instagram-ready environment. The only catch is you’ll have to pay mightily for it.
Jacoby’s Restaurant & Mercantile
Jacoby’s is the kind of place people outside of Texas dream about. The food isn’t life-changing, but the huge backyard and charm make up for it.
