South Congress Cafe

Taking a break from SXSW at South Congress Cafe.

My press schedule got rearranged today, so Abe and I decide to take a little break from SXSW stuff.  We head to South Congress Cafe for brunch.

I’ve been here once, years ago. It’s on South Congress next door to the famous boot shop.

There is a really long wait. They are slammed!

Complimentary cornbread muffins! We each have 2.5 for an even split.

Although their hearty brunch dishes looked amazing, we both just want salads.

I get the Beet one sans cheese – with grilled tri tip beef, so they give me a scary knife:

I trade some non beefy bites with Abe, who gets the special salad, a Greek one.

These are some of the best salads I’d ever eaten – and you guys know I consume A LOT of them. The dressings are flavorful, the veggies are crisp and fresh, and the meat was tender and juicy.

Afterwards we drive further down SoCo to do some laundry.


I heart laundromats. I haven’t been to one in so long that I am surprised they now have free wifi! Makes sense.

After we fluff n fold we are heading back to the Convention Center for more film fest madness! See ya later!
