Dinner entrees average USD8.95; representative dishes are carne guisada (tenderloin beef), chicken mole and pescado al chipotle (spicy fish filet).

If you're ever at a Daily Juice (there's also one in Lake Austin) or pass by their Airstream, take out time to say a warm 'Thank You'. Given all the grease, spice and beer that Austin dishes out, here's a great place to infuse a bit of the 'health conscious diet'. The stone hut near Zilker Park suits a place like Daily Juice. The juice bar serves a variety of organic juices and smoothies. One also has the option of having a made-to-order concoction to their specifications. Went overboard at El Caribe>? The Fire Hydrant(with jalapenos) is just what you need to put out that heartburn!

Beatnik or hipster-style places such as this one aren't supposed to have a friendly, woodland view out in back, but this one does. Within its walls, one is swept away into the cute and amusing 1950s atmosphere; the antique robot dolls and general ambiance give you an idea of how the future was perceived a few decades ago. The espresso and various coffees are strong and flavorful. Vegetarian burgers and a variety of sandwiches round out the menu for lunches and dinners. The jazz playing on the jukebox makes it a cool experience.
