After finding out there was a 45 minute wait at our original brunch place we called Salt and Time. To our delight we were told there was not wait. We head over excited to get our brunch on. The place is tiny with no more than 5 tables and bar seating. Lucky for us we were able to get the only open table. The menu is small but offers a good variety. They iced coffee is delish! It was buttery and looks like a dark beer. I tried the hash and braised pork which was quite delicious; however, my complaint was that the wait was far too long. We waited an hour or so for our meals. Considering there are almost no patrons in the restaurant we did not expect such a long wait. If you're willing to wait and have 3 hours to space, I would say try this place. A positive note was our server she was attentive without being intrusive.

We loved this little butcher shop/restaurant. We loved the easy parking, we loved that we didn't have to wait too long, we loved the music (heck yeah!), we loved the people, we loved the food, you see where this is going... K.I.S.S. - Simplicity, minimalist, yet well thought out and presented. Perfect place to pick up an order from the butcher while grabbing a beer and delicious meal.

I couldn't be more pissed or disappointed at the way I was treated at this establishment tonight. For context, I have been frequenting, patronizing, and bragging about Salt & Tyme for quite a while now. I have frequently said, "It's awesome that we have a local butcher shop." or "I love how it feels so "'East Side' in there" [Note: I live on the East Side close to Salt & Tyme] or told friends, "You should buy your brisket at Salt & Tyme and support local". So, I go by there tonight, walk in, ask if I can order a couple of menu items to go. The lady working there looks at me expressionless and says, "We only plate our food". I said something like that I was sorry but could she make an exception because my wife and I have a new-born baby and my wife really cannot leave the house because of care-taking of the new-born and she asked me to pick up food here. The lady said that I would have to ask the boss/manager. He came over, I explained my situation again and he said "We only plate our food" and then preceded to turn away from me and start doing something else (like cleaning some silverware or typing into their point of sale system. I wish they had considered making an exception to their policy but that it not why I'm compelled to publish this review. It was their attitude in saying "No". No, I'm so sorry. No, I wish we could. No, thank you for thinking of us. No attempt to be friendly. Just rude, arrogant indifference. They acted like my willingness to eat their food at my house was an affront to their food. [I'm curious, do they give to-go boxes for people that don't finish a meal that was "plated" at their establishment.] Anyway, I'm disappointed that a place that I have bragged about so much acted like such jerks. I think karma will get this place soon enough. There are lots of great places to go in Austin and lots of warm, friendly, wonderful experiences to be had at retail places and restaurants. Why would Austin put up with this place? No more Salt & Tyme for me; I'll buy my meat elsewhere.

I stumbled across this place looking for a new place to try and my infatuation with burgers lead me to a butcher that also served a burger as a great option. I tried the Salumi plate with their cheese of the day. The cheese of the day was really good but nothing on the plate stood out except the banana peppers and pickled apples. I ordered my burger and they said it came medium rare however when I got the burger I think it was more the traditional medium well (only a little pink). The meat tasted great, the fries were good and the ketchup with the fries was good. The ambience of the place is pretty cool but there is not a lot of seating so if it's busy there may be a bit of a wait. This is a butcher so if you can't handle raw meat hanging in the window you may not like this place.

So overpriced, $12 a sandwich for nothing special and the cookies that are 2 for $3 are worse than my high school cafeteria. The "Polenta" was just a small spoonful of yellow slop.Not only that, but the waiter (classic austin douchebag with combed beard) would not split a check for six people. For six people having a sandwich each, we bordered on $100. Atrocious sense of entitlement at this establishment. I will be telling people not to go.

The butcher cases are works of art. This is some of the most beautiful meat you will ever see. The butchers are very helpful and willing to make recommendations. It's expensive, but it's worth it. The food in the restaurant is amazing. My personal favorites are the Hamburger (one of the best in Austin), the Pork Wing (they rarely have it), the Chili, and the Pork and Waffles (brunch). The service could be better. A lot better. This restaurant would easily be 5 stars if the staff was even slightly warmer and more attentive.

Stepped in for a late dinner on Friday night and were treated like kings. Not a complaint but just a diner recc: if you head in late be aware this is a limited menu restaurant and some items might sell out. Otherwise the food was pretty much flawless and straight-forward v over-concepted trendy nonsense. The kitchen's mastery of the appropriate food temps for proteins was impressive (their medium rare moos but it was fantastic). Best tartare I've had in a while, matched with service that provided perfect pairings & made us feel like regulars. We'll be back and vocal abt how great this place is. Ps: a perfect spot for drinks and a board that's well-stocked with meats, pates and luscious cheeses.

Good sandwich, but you'd better like raw onions. There is only one side, potato salad, no substitutes. They wouldn't even upcharge me for a soup. Kind of ridiculous, and the waitress was borderline about it.
