We were thrilled to be mentioned in John & Michelle’s Top 10 things they love about Hyde Park for the Tribeza Magazine’s Neighborhood Issue July 2013! There are so many wonderful things about this area but we think they did a great job with this list. Here is what they had to say:
Quack’s 43rd St Bakery (411 E. 43rd Street)- The first coffee house in Austin. Cookies and cupcakes for the kids, espresso and dessert for us.
Shipe Park and Pool (4400 Avenue G)- Our neighborhood park and the best place to stay cool in the summer. With two kids under the age of 10 we have made Shipe Park an extension to our own backyard!
Vino Vino (4119 Guadalupe St.)- Great food, great wine, and the heart of the emerging commercial district on the western boundary of Hyde Park.
The Flightpath Coffee House (5011 Duval St.)- Even though the planes don’s pass over their descent to land at Mueller Airport anymore, it’s still a great place to get coffee. And now you can actually hear your table conversation.
Elisabet Ney Museaum (304 E. 44th St.)- The former castle-style home and studio of the German-born sculptress now exhibits her work focused on legendary Texans. Admission is free, perfect for our young kids, who can only last 10 minutes in a museum anyways.
Avenue B Grocery (4403 Avenue B)- Austin’s oldest continuously operated grocery store, built in 1909. Handmade, fresh deli sandwiches and “old-school” candy for kids.
The Col. Monroe Shipe House (3816 Avenue G)- Built in 1892 by the founder of Hyde Park with lumber from the grandstands of the old State Fair of Texas. Hyde Park is known for having a historic home on almost every corner of the neighborhood.
Julio’s Cafe (4230 Duval St)- Breakfast tacos in the morning, roasted chicken for lunch or dinner. Bring cash. No credit or debit cards accepted!
Adams House Bed & Breakfast (4300 Avenue G)- Another Austin Historic Landmark, built in 1911 and converted to a bed-and-breakfast in 1997. A great place for the in-laws to stay, within walking distance of our house.
