Two days ago, I made a quick trip to Austin! I tagged along after another intern invited me to go with her to pick up a bicycle.
Exploring and being silly… This is my life.
We had lunch at Kerbey Lane Cafe. No pictures to show for it, but I can assure you it was tasty (and pretty inexpensive). Win.
By the time we got around to shopping, it was getting a little later in the evening and most shops were closed. We did get to see a couple cute boutiques though, including New Bohemia, a fun vintage shop where I proceeded to take the dorky picture of myself above.
After walking around for a couple hours, we came across a large gathering of food trucks and decided a cupcake would be completely appropriate fuel.
This was probably one of the best decisions that has ever been made because this was the best cupcake I’ve ever had. Coming from a former red velvet hater, that says a lot. It was perfect. Thanks, Hey Cupcake!
Then came some more walking and window shopping. We stopped at a place highly recommended by the worker at Hey Cupcake, Bouldin Creek Cafe. I tried a tofu taco that was pretty good! Very nutritional yeast-y.
We walked out around the town for a couple more hours after that before calling it a night and crashing at a friend’s house.
Gonzo was another of the many food trucks that abounded in Austin. Solid menu with salads, wraps, sandwiches, and juice/smoothies. Very yummy. My friend had a watermelon lemonade she couldn’t stop raving about.
Mhm. This was our last stop before heading back home.
Even though we were in Austin for a very short period in time, I think we got a good feel for the city and we both desire to make a trip back soon!
