One of my top 3 breakfast tacos places, Granny's is a single trailer located next to an outdoor food trailer court, but is tucked away on its own behind the Kammock outdoor shop on E 7th and Navasota. Granny's makes some really great breakfast tacos and lunch items as well, about a 5 minute walk away. On weekends they disable their online ordering because they're just too busy to deal with it. Get there early for very little wait time, but there are picnic tables.

The Mueller neighborhood is a redevelopment of land that used to be home to the old Austin Airport. Centrally located it's minutes to downtown and UT, and has a great mix of outdoor space with native plant and wildflower lined trails hosting large and very Austin sculptures (for example, the large pollen sculpture), a large lake park with food trucks and weekly farmer's market. There's a big box store section near the highway, a children's museum, pocket parks, lots of local restaurants and entertainment and a friendly neighborhood feel with homes that required builders to include front porches. A well thought out development that is used by the whole city.

One of Austin's historic neighborhoods, there was a time when Hyde Park was populated mostly by students renting and attending UT but nowadays there are more homeowners in residence and the older homes have been lovingly restored and maintained. Hyde Park Bar and Grill and Julio's chicken restaurants, as well as Quack's Bakery and Fresh Plus neighborhood grocery are some of the old school Austin still in place in Hyde Park.
