  The famous Tres Leches Cake
by tee0206

The 1886 Cafe & Bakery is inside the Driskill Hotel on 6th Street, which is a beautiful, historical hotel right in downtown Austin. There's not a huge selection on the menu, but the food is quality. It's a really nice place for breakfast/lunch/brunch. It's not quite as fancy as the Driskill Grill, but the food is still good. Save room for the fabulous dessert, or go just for the dessert!

Favorite Dish: Tres Leche Cake. Oh my gosh, this nationally acclaimed chocolate and pecan Tres Leche Cake is my absolute favorite Austin dessert ever. It's absolutely amazing, and that's all I have to say. Try it!
