September Brunch!

El Alma


Hi Everyone! Brunch in Austin is a must and we haven't done one in a while! As the fall weather sets in, let's enjoy a late Saturday morning eating and drinking near Barton Springs. "El Alma is the culmination of two great friends — Restaurateur Carlos Rivero, and Chef Alma Alcocer. Together, they bring to life a fresh approach to Mexican flavors in a cozy neighborhood restaurant." "Located on Barton Springs Road in a funky multi-tiered structure, the restaurant prominently features a stone staircase built into a natural rock formation adorned with tropical plants and a waterfall.
