I absolutely love the vibe of Contigo! So far it's my favorite place to grab brunch in Austin. The dining room is fully outdoors so it makes for an amazing setting on a beautiful Spring day. Contigo has an awesome waitstaff and a great selection of both food and drinks. The most recent time we went, it was cold outside, so they had a special hot toddy menu that was delicious. We also got the warm cornbread, which was drizzled in a sweet caramel sauce and topped with a to-die-for crumble. My favorite thing to eat was the beef tongue hash, which had some ridiculously good breakfast potatoes along side. Definitely a spot I'd check out for a great Austin brunch.

Contigo is a great place for happy hour or a nicer dinner. Their extensive outdoor seating really takes advantage of the typically dry Austin weather. If you want to be seated indoors, you're probably better off making a reservation ahead of time since this place gets pretty busy. We started with the Pork Liver Pate. The eggplant fritters covered in honey is an awesome (and delicious) concept. I'm not well-versed on pate, but it was quite tasty smeared on a baguette slice. As I browsed the menu, I immediately fixated on the Rabbit and Dumplings. What an excellent decision that was. It's incredibly filling and really warms you up (even when it's the middle of the summer). I highly recommend it. The Texas Summer Melon dessert was definitely the hit of the meal. It features a variety of melons infused with vanilla, making for an incredibly refreshing bite of fruit. Combine that with some ricotta and pound cake and you have an absolutely fantastic dessert.

One of my absolute fave places to indulge. The food is amazing and so are the drinks. I love the happy hours. The major bummer is no reservations. It can get pretty busy, which equals a LONG wait. Get there early if you can. Dogs are allowed, which is awesome. They have traditional seating and also big picnic tables you can share with strangers. I've had some pretty interesting conversations with complete unknowns there before.

This place is like going to eat in someone's giant backyard; I say that with all pleasantries. More than half of the area appears to serve as Contigo's outdoor beer garden while the rest is more of a covered patio than a traditional sit down restaurant. The decor fits though as their food is emphasized as directly from the farm to table. The food is absolutely fresh as if it was pulled from a garden in the back. My friends and I tried their pigs in a blanket and fried green beans to start. The pigs came out hot from the oven and served with a Dijon mustard while the green beans were crisp and served with a nice aioli sauce. As for the main course, there was one entree that caught my eye and that was the rabbit and dumplings. Their serving sizes are certainly on the lighter side, but that's what I now come to expect from places that hold more importance on quality than quantity. The rabbit came in stew form on a medium sized skillet and with three biscuits the size of a half-dollar coin; it almost resembled an open-faced pot pie. The rabbit was certainly tender and honestly really harked my memories to a fresh chicken pot pie. While the food was of good quality and delightful, the price and certain wait you'll have to endure doesn't necessarily make me think that Contigo is a must-go eatery. I also have to note that on the day that my friends and I visited Contigo, a massive storm came into town and basically limited the usable space to just the patio area. The great openness concept was then draped with heavy plastic covers to shield us from the rain and eventually hail. While I'm not faulting Contigo for the bad weather, it did highlight that on bad weather day, Contigo may not be the best venue to visit. However, this is an absolutely great spot to enjoy eating under the stars during a wonderful night in Austin.

One of Austin's best brunch experiences. Delicious food and great cocktails. Contigo is an outing and will always be busy when the weather is nice. Plan in advance and enjoy drinks and fellowship while you will be worth it! Great atmosphere.

Small plates is the name of the game. Get plenty and share. Cocktails are great here and plenty strong. Mostly outside so prepare your experience to be influenced by weather. Be adventurous and try something out of the norm for you. They know how to make good dishes so it is likely going to be great.

Maybe it's not my favorite style of food. It's a fusion of home cooking (fried okra, dumplings, etc) and high dining (pate, kobe beef etc). Just a little to fancy for my taste. The sausage I had was tasty, but I got about a tablespoon of sauerkraut. Was expecting more.
