Blue Dahlia is one of those absolutely charming discoveries in Austin that, once you learn about it, you'll want to go again and again. Perfect for a rainy day lunch, a sunny morning breakfast, or a romantic evening dinner, it's always a great time to pull up to the communal table, order some wine (or a latte) and enjoy a bread and cheese plate. The owners are committed to using local, organic and sustainable ingredients, and the results are outstanding. You'll want to try all of the varieties of open-faced sandwiches (tartines), and you'll love each of the main entrees with perfectly chosen creams and sides. Wash it down with light hibiscus mint iced tea or order a glass of wine to compliment your simple, perfect taste-of-France meal.

Happy Hour happens Monday through Friday, 3-6:30 pm and features specially-priced sandwich platters and selected beers and wines. Breakfast is also served all day.

Though there is a communal table, there are plenty of individual seating options inside and in the pleasant backyard garden patio.
