AUSTIN | Easy Tiger is one of those places that we love, a place that defies categorisation and instead focuses on doing what it does, well. It’s a bakery/cafe/bar/beer garden that’s open from the early hours of the morning until… the early hours of the morning. Upstairs is the highly lauded bakery, where you can find an assortment of artisan breads, pretzels and sausages including head baker and co-owner David Norman’s famous buttermilk biscuits and head chef and co-owner Andrew Curren’s house made sausages. The bakery itself is housed behind the glass walls of the 19th century building that Easy Tiger occupies, so you can watch the magic happen while you decide what you want.
If you want to eat in, head downstairs to the cafe/bar/beer garden where you’ll be greeted with a sort of Paris-meets-New-York-City basement space that opens out to a surprisingly spacious beer garden. Try the house-cured pastrami sandwich to go with your drink as it’s one of the city’s best sandwiches. Downstairs is where all the beer action happens of course, and you can find 33 craft beers on tap along with a bottled range featuring brews from local breweries like Jester King, Real Ale, Austin Beerworks and Live Oak Brewing plus breweries outside of Texas.
Baking and brewing – yes the ingredients are similar but who would have thought the end products would go so well together in a venue like this.
