Welcome to another edition of Austin Eats Round-Up! Think of these posts like little glimpses into what I’m loving right now for the month of May. It’s the END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR! Hallelujah! That means my June round-up is going to be packed with awesome places. Where should I go in June? Send me recommendations – what are your current favorite places? Links to all my favorite May things are included in the post.

900 W. 10th Street, Austin, TX 78703
I visited 40 North way back when they were a trailer on S. First. I was happy to find out they have a regular brick and mortar location now! It’s a super cute little house off W. 10th street downtown. Their pizzas are seriously delicious. I was going to go for a slice of pepperoni (they have way fancier pizzas, I just like what I like), but when I saw their happy hour deal, I had to do that. Every day from 3-6pm, you can get a whole Margherita pizza for $7. The dough is so soft and chewy – even when you reheat it the next day! I’ve also heard amazing things about their chicken sandwiches and their burgers. You really can’t go wrong at this cute little place.
Biscuits and Groovy
5015 Duval Street // 1210 Barton Springs Road
I’m always down for a good plate of biscuits and gravy! You can easily share these orders with someone else. I got their most basic biscuits with sausage gravy and I was stuffed. You can add eggs, potatoes, cheese, bacon, jalapenos… I mean, it’s CRAZY good. Next time I go I want to try some of their jams, or maybe their “M.C. Hammer” – one biscuit open faced with egg on one and bacon or sausage on the other. Pictured below is the “Donna Summer” – biscuits, gravy, eggs, and cheese. Their location at Hyde Park doesn’t serve coffee, but that’s totally ok. While you’re waiting for your meal, you can head around the corner to Flightpath Coffee.
5011 Duval St, Austin, TX 78751
Flightpath Coffee has been in Austin since 1992, if you can believe that. It has a pretty large interior working space and outdoor patio. This is a perfect “work from home” spot. I remember coming here when I first moved to Austin. I’m pretty sure a large portion of my job search happened on their patio while drinking an iced chai. That was 5 years ago and I’m happy to report that their iced chai is still delicious as ever.
Caffé Tèo at 1206 W. 38th St. Austin, 78705 // Your local H-E-B or Central Market
If you want some seriously authentic gelato, Tèo Gelato is where you get it. It finished in the Top 5 at the Gelato World Tour Finals in Rimini, Italy. How lucky are we to have it made right here in Austin?! In addition to Caffé Tèo, you can now get this high-quality gelato at your local H-E-B or Central Market and eat it at home. That way, there’s no one around to judge you when you eat a whole pint at a time. I received two pints of Teo Gelato for free, which is what prompted me to write about them this month, but I’ve been a fan of theirs for years.
There you have it – that’s what I was loving in May! Where should I go in June? Any suggestions? Like I said, SCHOOL’S OUT and I’m ready to explore explore explore. Comment below or hit me up on Instagram @DiscoveringATX.
