"We..spent a relaxing evening with the owners of the Austin Street Café, chef-caterer-baker Lisa Copeland and her husband Jack....the nicest, most interesting folks you may ever meet."
San Antonio Magazine, February 2011. Article by Julia Celeste
"This renovated adobe house, on a quiet corner a few blocks off Marfa's main drag, is as dapper and welcoming as a fifties-era fantasy housewife in heels and starched apron holding a plate of warm cookies. The floors are glossy white, abundant windows open to the breeze, and a screened porch overlooks a garden beset with lavender and butterflies. But maybe you came hungry? There's a lovely tomato basil soup, inventive egg dishes, citrus-dressed greens picked from the garden, lemon bars, and fruit smoothies ('No ice! No weird syrups!'). It's worth planning your trip around its limited hours."

"You can't lose with a lunch at Austin Street Cafe. The owners are friendly, their design taste impressive, and the landscaping is uplifting...But all pales compared to the wholesome eats; the soups, salads, wraps and muffins are simple and savory."
Austin Monthly, December 2006. Article by Clayton Maxwell.
"... the best food we had was at Austin Street Cafe ... all of it tasting like the ingredients had been chosen fresh that morning by owners Jack and Lisa Copeland."

"This artfully appointed cafe celebrates Marfa's new urbanity with Belgian waffles, wraps, salads, fruit concoctions, and from-scratch baked goods. We breakfasted on Curried Green Eggs (actually a quiche showcasing locally grown chard), blueberry waffles, and nutty muffins. None was short of excellent. Knowledgeable, engaging staff."
