    Poké-Poké is not East Austin, it is on South Congress across from St Edward’s University. And its Hawaiian fare is delicious!

    • Good to hear! I drive past it every day, and I need to try it sometime soon!

    My husband proposed to me at Jasper’s. Sad to see it closed.

  • This is so crazy!! I love this foodie city!

    I was so sad when Olivia closed. I legitimately pulled the car over right when I saw it and texted my fiance so we could mourn together… 🙁 They had my favorite brunch in Austin!!
