I like it when my friends come to visit from out of town and take the time to research new places to try for lunch or brunch. They know I'm a foodie, health conscious and that I prefer vegetarian or vegan fare.
This time my friend suggested the Citizen Eatery. Interesting enough I had not heard of it, so I immediately asked Google to tell me where it was and to show me the menu. I was happily surprised when I saw that it was a 100% meat free restaurant. The menu is completely vegetarian with vegan options and an all-day breakfast.
We went on a Sunday morning for brunch. The ambiance was relaxed and the setting, modern. The over-sized windows allowed for plenty of natural light, and we noticed the full bar which would be great for a meal in the future, at a later time of the day.
We proceeded to order shortly after we arrived.
My friend had been talking about a Shakshuka, this is a middle eastern dish which consists of poached eggs atop spiced tomato sauce and wilted kale, and since he had seen it on the menu, he knew exactly what he wanted.
It took me a bit to decide since they had so many options, but I finally settled on the Citizen Scramble.
The service was friendly and we were offered mimosas, which we politely declined, but they looked incredible as they were being served to the adjacent tables.
When the dishes arrived, they looked great.
The Shakshuka was divine. I tasted the tomato sauce and it was slightly spicy and full of flavor. This is exactly what I will be ordering on my next visit.
My choice consisted of two eggs scrambled to perfection, soft and light, prepared with cremini mushrooms, potatoes, onions, wilted kale and vegan cheese, and a side of gluten free toast. I could have substituted the eggs for tofu, but I chose to only switch the cheese this time. It was even better than I had expected.
The Citizen Eatery is now as one of the top three best, healthy, vegan restaurants to try in Austin. Check it out Here!

"Expertise and Attention - Seller Clients June 2016
Violet’s expertise and attention to detail was invaluable in the sale of our home. Her research and knowledge of the current market enabled us to price it correctly and get it on the market to leverage the peak sales season.
Because we had our own a target date that we wanted to hit, she was able to recommend resources and services to help us make it happen. She put together a thorough marketing plan that included a timeline to help us get the house ready and to generate interest before the listing went live.
Once the house was ready, she came and helped us stage so that it looked better than it ever had. She even suggested repurposing a rarely used second eating area into an office space. (We wished we had thought of that and utilized the space that way before.)
She scheduled the “go live” and the Open House to coordinate with our schedule to be out of town. I was completely comfortable being away and leaving her in charge for the weekend. We received multiple offers that first weekend. We were impressed with how she professionally and respectfully worked with the other realtors always keeping our best interest at the forefront. She helped us sort through the pros and cons of each offer and compare to come to the best contract decision for us. There were some snafus but she walked us through them. We could not have been more pleased with the outcome."
