Find this little gem in the Clarksville neighborhood, directly off W 6th St. Opened in April by prominent Austin restaurant group, MML Hospitality, known for the spots mentioned above and so many fab others! The atmosphere is inspired by the seasonal coastal cuisine and vibes of Northern California restaurants like Zuni Cafe and Chez Panisse.


Pecan Square Cafe


You can always expect the best decor and atmosphere from MML and this spot is no exception! Crisp tablecloths, bright wood paneling, and pops of color and texture make the space feel elevated! The vaulted dining room, stone patio, and bar area are all filled with such unique styles. It all meshes together so perfectly but you almost feel like you’re at 3 different restaurants at once. They claim to have a “NoCal Sea Ranch aesthetic and the American Southwest with custom Texas artist artwork!”


Seasonal is the name of the game here! A day-to-night Mediterranean-influenced menu featuring light bites like marinated olives and sweet potato fries, shareable pizzas and pasta, and larger entrees like a pork chop + fish! All paired so well with fresh cocktails, like a Spritz, or Martinis, plus a great wine and beer selection! Our must orders were the: Texas Fruit Plate, Sweet Potato Fritters, La Ratta Fingerling Potato Pizza, and The Fall Mezcal Daisy is beyond!


On Sunday afternoon from 3:30 PM to 6:30 PM enjoy their lawn experience with blankets, music, pizza, and wine specials…say less! Or enjoy happy hour Monday through Friday from 3 PM to 5 PM with $8 spritzes and 25 % off all bottles of wine! Use the Swedish Hill parking lot after 6 PM, valet, or opt for street parking! Keep this chic addition to the Austin food scene in your pocket for a special occasion, celebratory drink, or GNO!
