This place is always really busy and hectic, so be prepared to wait a long time to get a table. Also not kid friendly at all. The gf pastries and sandwiches are good, but really not worth it considering the prices and the stressful atmosphere.
This is my FAVORITE spot for delectable desserts, and sandwiches! Their menu is clearly labeled and the wait staff is trained to ask if you're ordering GF as a preference or due to an allergy so that they won't cross contaminate! If you're GF or not, you MUST try their carrot cake cupcake and apricot scones!!! MMMMMMmmmmmm!!!
I moved away from Austin and miss visiting the steeping room. such a great selection of fresh, healthy food.
Great tea and GF scones plus sandwiches with GF rice bread option, salads, soups and Buddha Bowl
Fantastic place to grab sone gluten free food! Wide selection of fresh and healthy entrees. They even have desserts and cookies G Free. Looking forward to my next visit!
Excellent food. Plenty of GF, vegan options. Some wheat-free desserts. A few dairy-free desserts. Most of the entrees and sandwiches available GF or vegan. The lopsang smoked chicken is fabulous. Service is attentive. Busy, reservations recommended for lunch, at least.
They are very careful and ask each time if you have a gluten allergy when you order GF items so that they are sure not to cross contaminate. Their GF DESSERTS are AMAZING, and my husband didn't even know he was eating a GF cupcake. Their sandwiches are top notch! This is my FAVE GF spot.
Nestled inside a lovely shopping center sits the Steeping Room. it is a small shop with a sit down dining room adjacent. I got lost trying to find the room (first time in Austin) so I arrived 10 mins before closing. All they had left of the GF goodies were scones and carrot cupcakes. Which was cool cause I love carrot cake. got the GF cupcake and loved every crumb. It was moist, dense and ultimately satisfying. The coffees and teas were awesome too. I got spiced chi latte and hubby got a light Bolivian roast both brews were beyond expectations. Planning on going back tomorrow to have thre full spectrum of their GF options. Love love love the Steeping Room!
Lots and lots of GF options both on regular menu and dessert menu. Staff was very knowledgable and accommodating to check items for other intolerances I had as well. Sandwich bread was great, held together well (I would guess its Rudi's sandwich bread). Oh, tea selection is great too :)
Great breakfast, terrific staff. Very GF educated and accommodating.
Nice gluten-free options on the menu. Staff seems well trained and aware of celiac needs.
