No one knows neighborhoods like the Austin Realtors who help put people in them. Meet some of the top Realtors in Austin as they share their best picks to eat, shop, live and play within their favorite neighborhoods.

Founder of KEEP Real Estate, Austin Stowell is a former pharmacist who has lived on the east side since 2000. He looks forward to the impact UT’ s new top-tier medical school will have on Austin real estate, particularly in East Austin. “ The east side is special because right now we are in the midst of a Renaissance. There is room for creativity from homeowners and developers alike,” Stowell said. “ This neighborhood has been a nexus of will and opportunity, patience and grit, where entrepreneurs simply find a way to figure it out.” | 512.294.8468

Austin’s East Side

Mi Madre’s (2201 Manor Rd.)—“ Two must-have items: the #0 Taco and their Micheladas, which have an authentic flavor I haven’t had outside of Mexico.”

Dai Due (2406 Manor Rd.)—“ I can see the house where I lived in college from their dining room. The reuben on rye is literally amazing, and the peach kolache is to die for.”

Quickie Pickie (1208 E. 11th St.)—“ This place is like a modern day Agora: you can see anyone from senators to University of Texas athletic coaches taking meetings on the patio here.”

Paper Boy (1203 E. 11th St.)—“ Great breakfast trailer concept so popular that they’ve run out of seating nearly every time that I’ve been. Their breakfast sandwiches are the best. Anytime you combine brioche buns and pimento cheese into breakfast, magic happens.”

Hotel Eleven (1123 E. 11th St.)—“ A husband and wife team just opened this modern boutique hotel. It has beautiful patios, a great bar for meetings and $2 beers during happy hour.”

Texas State Cemetery (909 Navasota St.)—“ Every Texan should walk through this magical place. It is beautiful and gives a profound respect for the number of heroes and statesman who have shaped the history of our state. They just placed Chris Kyle’s headstone there this year.”

Contigo (2027 Anchor Ln.)—“ You have to try the fried Green Beans with Sambal Aioli and the Pigs-in-a-Blanket. Now that we have a son, this is a great place for our young family to grab a quick and easy bite to eat.”

Bearded Lady (3504 E. 4th St.)–“ Bearded Lady is a gallery and print shop that has cool, authentic artwork from some of Austin’ s most awesome printmakers including Chris Bilheimer. He’s kind of a big deal.”

Bufalina (1519 E. Cesar Chavez St.)—“ Their burrata is one of the most delicious items I have ever eaten. The Margherita pizza is a great one.”

Stay Gold (1910 E. Cesar Chavez St.)—“ For a night out on the town this place has everything: great vibe, they often have some stellar, hard-to-find beers and live music. They have a great patio as well.”
