My Austin: Las Manitas Avenue Cafe
"Las Manitas, to me is the university of rice and beans," said Owner Cynthia Perez. "With all the advancements in technology, all the progress the world has made there's nothing that can transmit what a person feels when they are given a homemade tortilla to eat..."
The Congress Avenue cafe soon became an Austin institution, catering to weather-worn street veterans as well as Austin's many mayors.
From the cowboy-boot crowd to the loafered-business class, it's the perfect place to see and be seen. And for just $4.25 lose yourself in the huevos rancheros.
Step inside for a quick bite and a long glance of just one example of what makes Austin, Austin.
