You Will Swoon Over These Cute Austin Food Creations

0 comments
As Austinites, we have a civic duty to keep this town weird, so let’s play with some food. We put together a list of some of the cutest bites around. A list that includes a little something for everyone. The best part? All of these shops love seasonal sweets and savory treats, so you’ll never be bored by the menu. Perfect for birthdays and anniversaries, so be sure to scoop something sweet for your sweetie, something cute for your cutie. Here’s your treasure map to the dearest little treats.

Eat your heart out, Texas.

Wu Chow Austin

Now this is a dining establishment with ideals and ambition. Wu Chow really does do the most clever stuff to their baos, like these adorable roosters that they created for Chinese New Year. A quick peek at their Instagram feed also shows off peach-shaped buns, rose dumplings for Valentine’s Day, visually stunning high end desserts, and more. Keep checking back to see how crafty these buns can be! Side note, the service is a dream. Gimme some of that dim sum.

Voodoo Doughnut

This place takes food fun to a whole new level by turning their doughnuts into celebrations fit for any occasion! Voodoo is famous for birthday pastries, tribute treats, and even an extensive selection of pretty, pastel vegan goodies, all perfectly packaged in their iconic, pink boxes. Plus, for those lazy mornings, Voodoo Doughnut delivers and for those late nights, they’re open 24/7. Around-the-clock sweets? Yes please!

Walton’s Fancy and Staple

Walton’s is the perfect one-stop-shop for winsome gifts and goodies. Customize cupcakes or macaroons for any occasion and look no further for wedding party wants and needs. Each final course option contains the right amount of sweetness and is almost too gorgeous to indulge in.

EastSide Tavern

Pink Deviled Eggs at EastSide Tavern.  I repeat, Pink Deviled Eggs at Eastside Tavern. Though known for their killer menu of bbq items and home style sides, the cuteness associated with these pretty, whipped starters is more than enough to draw in the crowds.

Barley Swine

These pork buns are almost too cute to eat! Barley Swine, the sister restaurant to Odd Duck, serves up the perfect mix of asian inspired cuisine and smoked backyard barbecue. Each portion is perfect to taste, and filled with intense flavors that beat out a Texas-sized plate any day. Yum, yum and yum!

Tiny Pies

The tiniest pies pack the biggest punch at Tiny Pies. Appealing to the eye, and appetizing to the taste, these soft and flakey treats are stuffed with the perfect amount of filling. Whether you’re looking for a light dessert or savory snack, you’re not going to want to miss these Austin bites.

Grizzelda’s

I had no idea a shrimp sampler could be so vibrantly colorful and cute. Grizzelda’s crushed this pretty dish, and their menu selection generally. Various shades of pinks and greens mixed with clever lighting and fun textures fill this restaurant. Sign me for some seriously pretty seafood in a super suave setting.

G’Raj Mahal

This Rainey Street staple will have you well fed in every regard. The flavors are wonderfully deep with richness and tang and the chill atmosphere and ideal location make G’Raj Mahal too easy of a choice. And who knew water bread bites were this delightful looking?

Maggie Louise Confections & Chocolate Boutique

I dream of this place! These chocolate boxes couldn’t be cuter and the interior couldn’t be more luxurious. Maggie Louise‘s dessert boxes are showcased in display cases similar to jewelry counters in department stores. Bring your imagination to this East Side shop, because in addition to their rotating themed treats, Maggie can also curate custom chocolates for events and parties.

Cooking up something special! Sneak peek of an exciting project launching Monday – stay tuned. ????

Lastly, waffles in the shape of the Lone Star State? Serve it up Second Bar! And pass the syrup please! This downtown restaurant packs plenty of seating, good lighting, and an outdoor area unsurpassed for shaded sips and starters. See you at Second Bar + Kitchen for sweets and treats!
