What a wonderful place! I picked the scones and tea option and I loved the experience.

Steeping Room has become my go-to place for gf pastries. The staff is very knowledgeable and they change gloves and package food accordingly. I love their gf apricot scone with clotted cream, but they also have other gf treats that look tasty! I’ve also had a sandwich on rice bread that was delicious.
This is the safest and most tasty gf place in Austin. The kitchen is super safe and the waiters are knowledgeable about gf and other dietary allergies. Everything I’ve had here is great but I love that you can get nearly everything gf—from latkes to sandwiches to a full tea service. Most of the desserts are gf (including cakes!) and it’s great to have options. Best of all, I’ve eaten here for years and have never gotten sick.
Delicious omelette! Would return
Very conscious and knowledgeable - my celiac partner never gets sick. Everything is labeled. The gluten free desserts and scones are amazing too!
What an absolute treat. Before I even mention the savory menu, we need to talk scones. The GF scone (apricot) was perfectly crumbly...with clotted cream and strawberry jam (and a lovely Assam), I was in complete heaven. And the menu! My Celiac kiddo loved her children’s tea service: a sandwich, scone, fruit, and cookies, all GF! I had a delicious pimento sandwich, and my husband enjoyed his chicken club. It does feel a tiny bit corporate...I was nervous that we had accidentally stumbled into a chain restaurant. But it is locally owned and a great spot!
first place in Austin that was worth the money! loved or
So happy to find this eatery for lunchtime!
This is the top tried and true gluten-free friendly restaurant in Austin, where it's easy to enjoy both great food and leisurely conversation. The Cashew Caesar Salad with chicken added is particularly good as a GF option, as are the GF scones and pignoli cookies. An extensive tea list offers many possibilities for matching your preference with your mood. I've been coming here since the first location opened in The Domain and happily return to The Steeping Room as often as possible.
Very good- &40 for brunch very good quality
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.
