Another wonderful new hang out is Contigo, which has a menu based around the kinds of foods served at the Contigo Ranch in South Texas.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: I moved to Austin with my family when I was in high school, left for college in Minnesota, a year in Brazil, and work in Los Angeles before coming back to put down roots in Texas. This house was my home for 10 years, and when our family grew we loved the neighborhood too much to go farther than a few blocks away!

                      Why the Owner Chose Cherrywood:
                      When I moved back to Austin I knew I wanted to live in a central neighborhood with interesting neighbors and fun things to do close by. Cherrywood fit the bill, and has only gotten better in the last several years with new restaurants opening and the unique new In.gredients grocery store around the corner. It's the first zero waste packaging-free store in the country, and of course it's in Austin! This house is within a 20 minute walk, 10 minute bike ride, or 10 minute bus ride to the UT campus and nearby hospitals. It's also blocks from I-35, which means downtown is minutes away and you can get anywhere quickly. The house is a comfortable retreat from work or whatever adventures bring you to Austin. It's on a quiet street filled with mellow neighbors and towering trees. The living area is filled with natural light, and there are sitting areas in the front and back yards.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The benefits of being in the Cherrywood neighborhood include being close by to - In.gredients (the first package free grocery store in the U.S.!) - Mi Madre's Mexican restaurant - El Chilito taqueria - El Chile Cafe y Cantina - Vivo Restaurant - The Salty Sow restaurant and wine bar - Thunderbird's Coffee - The Salvage Vanguard Theatre - The Butterfly Bar - Blue Starlite Drive-In - The Vortex Theatre - St. David's Hospital - Dell Children's Hospital - The University of Texas at Austin UFCU Disch–Falk Field Mike A. Myers Track and Soccer Stadium Darrell K. Royal Stadium (UT departments, please inquire about direct billing)
