I go there quite often because it has a real neighborhood feel about it and is close to my house. The wait staff is friendly and service is good. The menu prices could come down about $1 each and the food would be a good value. I have had great breakfast and lunch but not been there for dinner. It has great looking decor but the designer was obviously not a sound expert and put in all hard surfaces. Cute and hip, in this case, sacrifices atmosphere as it is loud and noisy when there are just a few people there.

But it's really not that exciting. It's clean and cute and decent, it's just pretty much over priced. (A helpful hint that you won't need, don't order anything with shrimp, fish or even tuna - Just Don't) But after an $8 wrap or sandwhich I feel sad. Although I can recommend the turkey chili (although oddly enough, not the turkey burger)

This is a cute place. Decor is very "space age" 50's and fun.

It can get VERY loud! I was here and it was only about 1/3 full and it was next to impossible to hear the people I was with.

The food was good -- I just had a burger. The people I went with thought their food was OK.

I'll probably go back, because it's convenient to my house!

This place has good wraps. I haven't tried much else on the menu, but it's got vegetarian options and is very health friendly. It's also a fun environment.

We really enjoyed ourselves at The Galaxy Cafe last night. We were looking for a light, healthy dinner and they delivered perfectly. We shared an amazing yogurt Bran Muffin and the famous mozzarella and pesto Polenta Cakes! They are Grilled tomato, fresh mozzarella cheese and basil pesto layered between polenta cakes on a bed of roasted red bell pepper sauce (I borrowed this description from their menu:). The meal also came with a hefty salad (I LOVED the balsamic dressing). Between the muffin, salad, and entree, there was plenty for my date and I to have a light dinner. The service was my favorite 2 things as well.... fast and friendly. There is no mistake why this restaurant is doing so well!

This was my first time going here for brunch on Sunday with a girlfriend of mine & her friend visiting from Chicago. She had been there a few times before & recommended the brunch - we were not disappointed. Drinks were served promptly & with a smile. The atmosphere is very airy & homey - We each had the brunch. We all ordered the eggs cooked differently & they were right on target. The home fries were yummy. What makes all of this even more appealing is the price - under 15 bucks!!
An added bonus is that it was easy to find parking since it was Sunday & all parking rules are suspended.

I just moved here from TN and was looking for a relaxing spot with good food and a great atmosphere to either read by myself or meet up with a girlfriend. THIS IS IT! The food was excellent, the staff was so friendly, and the atmosphere was great. Retro dining - meets both sophisticated and low key yummy dishes. I went to the Brodie location and cannot WAIT to go to the others! I am a follower. Eat here- you will not regret it!

My husband and I had run errands and they took longer than expected. We stopped in the shopping center with Maudie's, Brick Oven etc. for dinner and unfortunately many of the places were already closed. We were hungry and didn't want fast food. We entered Galaxy Cafe at 9:45, feeling bad because we knew they closed at 10:00. The cashier was friendly, and our food arrived promptly. My husband's chicken sandwich was delicious and we ended up fighting over his french fries because they were so good. My gorgonzola and bacon cheeseburger was extremely tasty and you can't miss the pesto pasta. Even though they were about to close, none of our food tasted old or reheated. I plan to return soon to get another gorgonzola bacon burger! :)

Never impressive, generally ho-hum luke-cold food. Eating it not by my own choice when the boss chooses. Good menu ideas but the taste from the menu never quite makes it to my palate. Probably well intended owners not watching the employees.

We've been frequenting Galaxy since it opened, especially for their brunch. This is an example of one of those places that just gets all the details right. The decor is fun - inspired 50's Modern with a heavy dose of Ikea; the service is amazing; the food is always good.

The entire atmosphere is very family-friendly without being kid-centric. Its one of the few places we go that's not a compromise for either my wife and I or my daughters (2 and 6).

Standouts are the quiche, the antipasto salad, and the fresh mozarella sandwich. Coffee is also great, especially the individual French Press. Nothing's bad, but the burgers aren't up to the standard of the rest of the place.

Its always packed, but the line moves quickly, and the atmosphere is always really friendly and pleasant. We started going to Galaxy for weekend breakfast because the waits at Magnolia, Curra's and Kirby were just too long, Now, we go as a first choice in its own right.

The West Lynn location manages all the charm of the Brodie location in an even brighter, more inviting space.

Definitely recommended.

Pros: Beautiful space; extraordinarily friendly service; really consistent, really good food.

Cons: Not expensive, but a little pricey for the type of food they serve

It is the BEST restaraunt in south Austin hands down. There is no place like it around. It is refreshing how Chris and Kellie (owners) have changed things up for the better down here. You can bring the family or dine with your friends. The service is top notch and the owners go out of their way to make everyone that walks through their door feel at home and welcomed. Some might say parking can get tricky sometimes but it doesn't stop me or my family from stopping by often. We eat here at least once a week sometimes twice. I love it!

I love Galaxy Cafe! It is a great laid back atmosphere and the service is great and everyone is always friendly. The turkey burger is the best one in Austin, along with the pork chops and skirt steak. I think the food is alot better than alot of the restaurants in Austin.

Ate here for the first time last week. I liked the concept of the place. It seemed like it would be a cozier place at night. Food was great. I wil try it again in the evening sometime.

Far South Austin has long awaited a solid neighborhood restaurant. Well, we finally have it! Galaxy Cafe gets it right in every area. The food is fantastic, the service great, and the atmosphere fun. On top of that, there is free wireless. Try any of their dinner specials, they are all great and the burgers are equally as good. The grilled chicken sandwich is the best I have had and others claim the same thing. There is a nice beer and wine selection, with the added bonus of being able to get it to go. Breakfast is just as good as lunch and dinner; I am particularly fond of the French press coffee and quiche. Leave room for dessert. The flourless chocolate torte and crème Brule are excellent, and there are large homemade cookies as good as grandma's. All made fresh daily at Galaxy. Enjoy!
