Northwest Hills Location

The Galaxy Cafe menu includes a special gluten-free selection with an expansive selection for vegetarians, vegans and a menu just for children.  We recently visited one of Galaxy Cafe’s newest locations, the Northwest Hills cafe.  In addition to the expansive menu,  also offers coffee, mimosas and brunch on the weekends.


New to the cafe and exclusive to the Northwest Hills location, the restaurant offers pancakes on it’s menu for the very first time.  In addition, they’ll also offer several adult-friendly offerings like Zocaritas from Zocalo Cafe, an expanded wine and beer selection including multiple local beers on tap including Austin Beerworks, South Austin Brewery, (512) Brewery Company, Independence Brewing Co. and Live Oak Brewing Company.

Famed local designer and Austin resident, Joel Mozersky designed new cafe with Galaxy Cafe’s familiar visual aesthetic that has been a big hit with Austinites and visitors alike.  The design gives emphasis on the cafe’s intergalactic theme with star constellations painted on the walls making it a fun atmosphere, we’ve grown accustomed to at the other locations.


Galaxy Cafe has always been well known for their use of high quality ingredients with a conscious focus on local and organic products.  Every location uses biodegradable products and packaging and as well as top quality menu items with a focus on all natural, free-range, hormone & antibiotic free eggs, chicken, & beef.
