We visited Austin the other weekend and happened across this place just as we were needing a place to sit, sip wine, and munch. Everything was great, from the cheese plate to the wines. The waffle cut fries are worth another flight to Austin, seriously!! Thanks for the relaxing stop.

Pros: great food, great wine, great service

Cons: not in my home town

.

if you want to buy a bottle for lunch then this is your spot... otherwise they mainly only have red (blends) and Chardonays by the glass. The service is out of this world terrible. I have eaten there about 15 times and something has got jacked up everytime I go. I speak great english I was born and raised here. I have no idea where it all goes wrong.... they have no Pinot Grigio, no Merlot, No Cabernet. WEIRD!! What kind of wine bar is this place? But FOOD IS YUMMY!!!!

Pros: Good food

Cons: TERRBILE SERVICE and LIMITED SELECTION OF WINE

I had eaten a few times at Cissi's, but we were very surprised to discover that it has turned most of its grocery aisles into a wonderful, warm wine bar! This is the kind of place that we have been looking for in this area. Very relaxed but elegant environment, with library shelves of wine (I think also for sale by bottle), and a nice selection of wine and little plates (tapas). Prices were reasonable, and the ambiance kept us there far longer than we intended. Glad this is here, and we will be back!

Pros: Ambiance, selection, and simply something we haven't had in this area!

Cons: none so far (try parking in the hidden garage behind Cissi's)

I usually stop by Cissi's for a great cup of coffee and a sandwhich, but was so excited last week to learn they've now opened a wine bar too! My coworkers and I were planning to go to Enoteca for a glass of wine after work, but noticed that Cissi's had just reopened, so we popped in there instead. Several hours, 2 cheese plates and 3 glasses of wine later, we were still having fun and needless to say, never made it down any further. The prices were really reasonable and the cheese plate was amazing. I'll definitely be back.

Last weekend my boyfriend and I were walking on South Congress and realized there's this new wine bar. The wine selection is great! Over 100 wines to buy by the bottle, and about 13 to taste by the glass. Also, they had a cheese tray that was just outstanding. Service was very nice. Atmosphere so comfortable and killer location. Highly recommended. Go check it out. Cissi's Wine Bar.

Cissi's market is NOT your typical market. They specialize in interesting items. Various flavored nuts & snacks. Specialty waters and beverages. I like to stop in here when I'm wandering around Congress and grab a few tidbits to nibble on.

I like their caramel puff treats that they had last time I was there.

It's definitely worth stopping in and browsing, because you are bound to find something that looks tasty/interesting to you!

I've stopped in to Cissi's on various occasions: once for coffee, another time to buy wine, another time for an afternoon snack. Every single time the staff has been very knowledgeable about the products and always willing to provide service.

Wonderful market with great combo of prepared foods + groceries. Very friendly and helpful. Was greeted immediately and helped to select from high-end black teas, which is what I was looking for. Great place to shop for those special ingredients to complete a gourmet (but soulful) kitchen.

Too Expensive
Variety - Bad
Out dated products
Does not belong in the area. I love the area and always frequent the establishments. As far as this Market ..... don't bother.

Pros: NONE - only the area is nice. They should make room for a better establishment.

Cons: The whole concept.
